Product and Customer
Lifecycle Management

OEMs excel at creating great products and staying on top of the latest technology advances. The problem is that—in order to support a product completely—you need to consider every single hardware touchpoint, as well as the customer touchpoints that surround those great products. Global Lifecycle Management offers solutions on both sides of the equation to supplement your operations or quickly launch these programs without major capital investments.

1. Design and Build

Design and build products by leveraging Tech Data’s team of experienced engineers. We can handle integrations, configurations and customizations from complex solutions to endpoint devices—to your or your customers’ specifications.

2. Procure and Stock

Tech Data will source and stock all materials, peripheral accessories and anything else needed in one of our global distribution and logistics facilities.

3. Sell and Grow

Let us help grow your revenue by taking your product to market. We can manage your channel and enable your reseller and dealer communities, as well as grow their end-user customer base.

4. Ship and Deploy

Once we take your product to market, we need to make sure it gets where it needs to go and is expertly installed. We’ll send technicians directly to your customers to complete installation and deployment—all under your brand.

5. Use and Manage

Your customers deserve the most value from their product purchase. Let Tech Data empower your end users, maintain IT environments, repair hardware, deliver training and contact customers when renewals are coming up so they are up to date on the latest technology and upgrades available.

6. Retire and Dispose

As products approach their end of life, Tech Data can capture the product for refurbishment or disposal in a secure, environmentally friendly way. We’ll recover the greatest value so you can reinvest capital as needed.

Focus on the Road Ahead

Every journey is unique, and Tech Data can help you accelerate your growth and reach your destination faster by embracing every opportunity along the way.
