Tech Data Mobile is named Hardware Distributor of the Year by Mobile News

Distributor is recognised for supporting partner sales growth, providing value-added tools and doing “exactly what a top distributor should be doing” by leading independent publication

Basingstoke, 17 March 2016 – Tech Data Mobile has been named Hardware Distributor of the Year by Mobile News in recognition of its exceptional performance and growth in a competitive market over the past 12 months.

Over the past year Tech Data Mobile has driven strong growth in its sales of major brands such as Apple, Samsung, Lenovo-Motorola and Microsoft. It was able to demonstrate significant triple-digit revenue growth and an increase of one third in traded accounts. In particular, the Mobile News Awards judges were impressed with Tech Data Mobile’s range of value-added tools, including the InTouch online ordering and management website and the TD Academy learning portal, which provides resellers with access to advanced and accredited training.

The publication also praised Tech Data Mobile for giving resellers the opportunity to make use of its Business Solutions Centre for training, live demonstrations and end user events, and the strong customer testimonials it provided with its entry.

In their citation, the Mobile News Awards judges stated that Tech Data Mobile had “demonstrated a growing business” with “good account management, successful product launches, backed by good support – exactly what a top distributor should be doing.”

Commenting on the award, Matt Child, Managing Director of Tech Data Mobile stated: “We’re honoured to receive this independent recognition from Mobile News and thank our customers and vendor partners for their continued support. We will keep on working hard, developing our services and our portfolio and driving growth for all our partners.”

The award was presented to Tech Data Mobile at the Mobile News Awards ceremony in London last week.
