CLEARWATER, Fla., Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tech Data
Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced it has completed the
acquisition of Brightstar Corp.’s (“Brightstar”) 50 percent ownership
interest in TDMobility. The TDMobility business unit at Tech Data
offers solution providers the infrastructure needed to simplify entry
into the mobile market, providing a complete, end-to-end mobility
solution from device selection and activation to security and mobile
device management in the data center. TDMobility was formed as a U.S.
joint venture between Tech Data Corporation and Brightstar in April
“Acquiring full ownership of the joint venture reflects our commitment
to grow our presence in the U.S. mobility distribution and services
market,” said Joe Quaglia, senior vice president, U.S. Marketing, and
president, TDMobility. “Mobility is an important element of our
diversification strategy and TDMobility’s unique capabilities provide
value-added resellers with a simple platform from which to offer a
complete mobility solution to end users. We thank Brightstar for its
partnership in helping to establish and expand the joint venture.”
TDMobility features two flagship offerings, CellManage(TM) and
TDActivate(TM), designed to streamline the mobile supply chain and end
users’ wireless infrastructure while saving reseller customers both
time and money. Tech Data has key agreements in place with today’s
leading wireless carriers, including Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T and
Sprint, enabling resellers to offer all carrier products and services
under a single ordering and management system.
Earlier this year, Tech Data launched its enhanced TDMobility
University, a training and education portal available exclusively to
its program members. The portal provides more robust applications,
online training videos, and step-by-step resources to help solution
providers build a mobility business. TDMobility University includes
sales, product training, and access to demo programs.
