OKI’s New Partnership with Tech Data enhances Channel reach and Opens Up Solutions-based Opportunities for Partners
Egham, 6 December 2016
- OKI Systems UK has announced a partnership with Tech Data for the distribution of the full range of OKI colour, mono and multifunction printers (MFPs) throughout the UK. OKI believes this new link with the major technology distributor will help maximise the potential of smart printers as part of a wider business solution and help realise its goal of expanding its channel to include IT solutions providers.
The move follows the launch of OKI’s new smart colour portfolio which extended OKI’s range, putting smart and high-end colour printing within reach of all sizes of business.
“As the business world changes with increasing digitisation, so the printer market is evolving,” says
John Thompson, Professional Services Manager, OKI Systems UK. “Our smart printers and MFPs' open platform means they can be integrated into digital workflows, converting print in to digital storage which gives customers the ability to manage electronic documents. We already have a large number of opportunities in industries such as healthcare, graphic arts, retail and professional services. However, with Tech Data’s extended market presence, we now have access to a broader range of customer opportunities.”
Simon Tetlow, OKI Systems UK Head of Channel agrees, adding “We believe this new partnership will be mutually beneficial, opening up new opportunities for Tech Data’s resellers and expanding OKI’s market reach and logistical capabilities.”
