CLEARWATER, Fla., Oct. 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced enhancements to its award-winning Software License Selector, the company's online concierge tool designed to address solution providers' software order inquiries. Introduced in 2011, the Software License Selector was created to reduce the software license cycle from days to minutes, offering customized solutions and order accuracy. The announcement was made in conjunction with Tech Data's TechSelect Partner Conference, taking place this week at the Green Valley Resort and Spa in Henderson, Nevada.

"The new technology enhancements made to the Software License Selector increases its value to channel partners, delivering one of the industry's most accurate, reliable and efficient tools—further reducing the cycle time from quote to license," said Phil Filippelli, vice president, e-Business at Tech Data. "The Software License Selector offers channel partners' best-in-class data infrastructure, a complete set of management tools, and reliable services to further improve the software solutions buying experience through Tech Data."
