BULLETIN Software store to save partners’ time and effort Tech Data has launched a Google Software Store, a dedicated self-service portal that will reduce the time and effort required for partners to register sales and process Google software licences, helping them to be more efficient and profitable – and deliver better service to customers. Using the Google Software Store, partners selling to education, the public sector and to enterprises will get immediate verification that their orders have been received and are being actioned. “The Google Software Store is going to save partners a lot of time and effort”, said Paul Nicholas, Senior Manager for Google Cloud at Tech Data. “In particular, it’s going to cut down on repetition and ensure that orders are complete and accurate, preventing any risk of delays or errors. The immediate verification of orders will make a huge difference. It will give partners greater confidence and allow them to deliver an improved level of service to their customers. Google has been a strong area of focus for us, and this is a further benefit that will enhance services for Google partners significantly.” 01732 759725 8 Exertis adds BitTitan to cloud services offering Exertis has partnered with BitTitan, adding the vendor’s fully automated, industryleading SaaS solution, MigrationWiz, to its cloud portfolio.

The name change brings the UK in line with the German operation and reflects the increased strength and depth of services that are now offered, including readily available credit terms, unlimited access to a wide range of popular solutions and services at favourable prices, backed by excellent partner support. Making use of its purchasing power with authorised distributors of leading manufacturers such as APC, Acer, Dell, HP, HPE, Lenovo and Microsoft, and its warehouse in the UK, SYNAXON Hub provides great availability of key commercial product lines for its partners, ensuring they remain competitive. It also offers excellent service in the form of fast response times, central RMA processing, next day delivery, and a 14-day return policy. Partners can also take advantage of SYNAXON’s project expertise and formal accreditations to enhance their own services and support capabilities. Mike Barron, Managing Director, SYNAXON UK, said “With this name change, we’re communicating that we’re doing much more than just ‘shifting boxes’ with our Hub business. We’re offering channel partners real value and benefits that they won’t get anywhere else.” Northamber signs distribution agreement with Yealink Northamber has signed a distribution agreement with Yealink Network Technology Co Ltd (Yealink).
