Tech Data, Hitachi Software Expand Distribution Deal

Tech Data Corporation has expanded its distribution partnership with Hitachi Software Engineering America so that it now will include Hitachi’s (News - Alert) StarBoard interactive whiteboards.
Hitachi’s StarBoard interactive whiteboards allow users to select powerful tools for classrooms, meetings, training, and conferencing for business and education. They feature large-format image areas (63”, 77” and 82” diagonal), with durable, anti-glare steel-backed projection surfaces for both digital ink annotations and controlling your computer applications with a wireless pen stylus.
Tech Data (News - Alert) will distribute Hitachi’s FXDUO and FX series of wired and wireless interactive whiteboards in sizes of 63, 77 and 82 inches. The presentation options for the companies will improve further with the Hitachi T-17SXL interactive LCD display with the StarBoard Software suite of collaboration tools. Tech Data also distributes whiteboards from 3M (News - Alert), NEC and Panasonic.
“Tech Data’s Digital Signage and Projectors SBU continues to diversify its product offering, providing resellers with access to the latest solutions and connecting more vendors to the channel partners,” said Tech Data Vice President, Peripherals Product Marketing Wendy Linsky. “The addition of Hitachi StarBoards is timely since we anticipate the first spending opportunities from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to emerge soon.”
Hitachi opted for Tech Data because of its extensive experience in the projector and digital presentation space, states the company. By partnering with Tech Data, the company expects to expand its reseller base and grow the business through the channel. It also plans to target IT spending opportunities expected to result from the economic stimulus bill.
Tech Data recently announced that it has entered in to contractual agreement with Force10 Networks, a networking solutions manufacturer, to distribute its products to IT resellers all across the U.S. collaborative efforts, such as this one between Tech Data and Force10, are in keeping with one of the seven mantras of the time, which dictates that organizations must make serious efforts to reach out and work with each other.
