Tech Data adds Sage to Range

Tech Data has added Sage’s range of small business accounting and payroll solutions to TD Activate-here – its online electronic software distribution (ESD) service that makes it simple for SMB resellers, e-tailers and retailers to offer a full and up-to-date choice of top selling software packages to their customers.

The addition of the Sage Instant Accounts and Payroll, Sage 50 Payroll and Sage 50 Accounts ranges to TD Activate-here strengthens the appeal of Tech Data’s electronic software distribution system even further. Resellers and retailers can order software products for immediate download and activation by the customer on TD Activate-here. There is no requirement to order product in advance or to display or stock physical ‘boxed’ software. It means that resellers can always offer full availability of software products and benefit from improved cash-flow and reduced cost.

The full range of products from Microsoft, Adobe, Symantec, McAfee, F-Secure and IRIS are already available on TD Activate-here and with the addition of Sage, James Reed, Director of Software and Systems at Tech Data, is expecting the usage of the system to increase.

“The addition of the Sage Accounts and Payroll product ranges adds significant additional value to TD Activate-here and will encourage even more resellers to use the service. We are seeing more customers use TD Activate-here on a frequent basis and with Sage added to an already strong portfolio of leading software brands we expect even more resellers and retailers to make use of the system on a regular basis. By making it much easier for them to offer a wide range of leading products and reducing their cost of sale, TD Activate-here is encouraging more resellers and retailers to offer and attach software at the point of sale. It is undoubtedly helping them to increase their software sales and their profitability.”

Mark Buckingham, UK Sales Manager Retail and Distribution at Sage, stated: “Tech Data leads the way in ESD and the availability of Sage via TD Activate-here presents retailers and SMB resellers with a superb opportunity to offer more choice and services to their customers, and thus maximise the potential to drive their sales of Sage’s best-selling accounts and payroll solutions. We’ll be working with Tech Data to ensure that our partners are aware of this most efficient and effective way of delivering Sage software to customers.”
