CLEARWATER, Fla., July 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced the launch of its new Systems & PeripheralsIT ("S&P") product division, bringing together offerings from its core vendor partners to build brands and solutions for its reseller customers. With a theme of "Complete. Not Complex.," the S&P division gives solution providers dedicated support and resources to help navigate the products, programs, and growth opportunities that exist in the IT channel. Combining Tech Data's former Client Systems and Peripherals businesses, the new division will be led by Wendy Maurer-Linsky, whose new title of vice president, Product Marketing, Systems & Peripherals, reflects her increased scope of responsibility.

"The new Systems & PeripheralsIT division gives our resellers access to strong, high-growth brands and technologies, while enabling them to leverage merchandising solutions, maximize profitability, and deepen relationships with their end-user customers," said Joe Quaglia, senior vice president, U.S. Marketing and president, TDMobility at Tech Data. "As it is a natural fit to sell a system and complement it with a peripheral, this enables our team, our solution providers, and our vendor partners to better capture the opportunities that exist in this space, including expanded merchandising and solutions bundling. This new division strategically aligns with the needs of our channel partners, allowing us to leverage our infrastructure with vendors whose products and solutions previously included both Client Systems and Peripherals."

The S&P division is focused on five key growth areas: Visual Solutions, Imaging & Print, Power & Energy Management, Computing, and Consumer Electronics. Tech Data has invested in the training and education of its S&P team to fully enable its partners to effectively go to market, offering certifications, trainings, installation, and content management. The "IT" in Systems & PeripheralsIT represents the exponentially powerful service and solutions that Tech Data is dedicated to providing its partners.

Showcased in Tech Data's recently expanded Solutions Center at the company's headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, the Systems & PeripheralsIT Experience Center, which opened June 28, provides resellers and their customers with the opportunity to physically or virtually experience the S&P division's extensive portfolio and services. To visit or schedule a demo at Tech Data's Solutions Center, call 800-237-8931 ext. 82175.

The S&P Solutions Hub, the division's robust new website, is also now live. The site enables channel partners to quickly and easily communicate with Tech Data's dedicated S&P sales teams through a Live Chat feature.
