The Tech Data Corporation has announced that it is expanding its TDMobility University program through TDMobility to train value added resellers (VAR).

“For today's VAR, the rise in mobility is an opportunity to sell an entire mobility solution from handheld devices to mobile device management, and TDMobility University provides the roadmap for ultimate success," said Heather Murray, director of sales and marketing, TDMobility. "TDMobility University includes all the product training, news and education VARs need to successfully implement and enhance their mobility offering. A convenient one-stop portal, TDMobility University has proven to be an important resource for resellers, reinforcing Tech Data's commitment to providing a simple, profitable route to the mobile market through TDMobility."

TDMobility University offers the latest news, information and other educational resources.

It also includes training videos for customers on how to find and build mobile strategies that will work best for end users that include Mobile Device Management (MDM) policies.

The program includes white-labeled presentations, tips for meetings and ready-made scripts, product slicks and templates for e-mails. It also includes customized branding for VARs.

The program’s clients give it high marks.

“TDMobility University has proven to be an incredible resource for our mobility practice," said Kevin English, Mobility Team Manager at SHI International Corp. "It provides a mix of great education and information I need to be successful.”

TDMobility is a joint venture between Tech Data Corporation and Brightstar to make providing mobile solutions, including hardware, software data and billing, easier. TDMobility has contracts with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.

TDMobility and Telecommunications Master Agency MicroCorp have also recently signed an agreement to add carrier services to its U.S. offerings.
