"As Tech Data continues to develop, populate and enhance MyOpportunityTracker, it has become an extremely valuable resource for us. With MyOpportunityTracker, we can ensure that we're not missing out on thousands or even tens of thousands of service and software license renewal opportunities."
In response to reseller requests, Tech Data today also unveiled a new feature for the tool. Resellers can now populate MyOpportunityTracker with their own renewal opportunities, including services, warranties and software licenses they originally purchased through other distributors.

Resellers can receive and review their renewal notifications anytime through techdata.com or via e-mail. MyOpportunityTracker enables resellers to efficiently sort and prioritize their renewal opportunities by manufacturer, expiration dates and end user to which the original service or solution was sold. Each opportunity includes pricing for new service agreements, warranties and software licenses, as well as potential alternatives such as upgrades to more comprehensive coverage offerings or product enhancements. MyOpportunityTracker also offers quote-building functionality so resellers can instantly add their margin and produce a sales proposal they can forward to end-user customers.
