Tech Data U.S. Adds To 'MyTools'
Clearwater, FL (November, 13, 2008) - Tech Data Corporation today announced new and expanded capabilities for MyLeadTracker-the channel's premier lead-generating e-business service-and the automated software license key resend tool MyLicenseTracker. MyLeadTracker and MyLicenseTracker along with MyOrderTracker(TM) make up Tech Data's MyTools, which provide resellers with their own unique sales leads and an array of productivity enhancement opportunities.
MyLeadTracker (formerly MyOpportunityTracker) has been enhanced to include next-generation sales leads, alerting resellers to potential hardware and software upgrade opportunities, including more environmentally friendly alternatives and replacements for product no longer produced or supported by manufacturers or software publishers. The distributor is working closely with its vendor partners to identify next-generation sales opportunities and provide those leads exclusively to Tech Data customers.
MyLeadTracker is currently alerting resellers to nearly 470,000 service, warranty and software license renewals, warranty and hardware add-ons, and hardware upgrade opportunities on products from nearly 60 leading manufacturers and software publishers. These opportunities represent more than $40 million in potential sales. The tool provides notification of pending renewals prior to coverage expiration and next-generation opportunities when new solutions are identified. The tool also enables resellers to create their own custom renewal opportunities for hardware, services, warranties and software licenses originally purchased through Tech Data or other distributors.
Tech Data recently enhanced MyLicenseTracker by adding automated software license key resends for CheckPoint, Corel, Diskeeper, Kaspersky, Parallels and VMware. Other vendors supported by the tool include Acronis, IBM, Microsoft, Novell, Nuance, Red Hat, Symantec and Trend Micro.MyLicenseTracker enables resellers to log on to www.techdata.com 24 hours a day to obtain software license keys lost, deleted or accidentally blocked as e-mail spam. Leveraging Tech Data's extensive data mining capabilities, MyLicenseTracker helps resellers retrieve license keys by searching their software order history by purchase order, Tech Data sales order, invoice number or date range. Once the correct order is identified, the tool generates an e-mail containing the original license key and order confirmation.
MyOrderTracker is a free, private-label order-tracking tool. More than 15,000 resellers leverage MyOrderTracker each month to distribute more than 245,000 e-mails notifying employees and customers of the status of orders placed through Tech Data. Increased visibility into each order's status enables resellers to more efficiently coordinate staff deployment for product installation and speed up billing cycles by using MyOrderTracker shipping notifications to initiate the invoicing process.
