Tech Data Adds Apple Warranties for Resellers

Through its partnership with Apple, Tech Data is launching a warranty tool, TDWarranty, that enables real-time activation of AppleCare Protection Plans when purchasing Apple products through the value-added distributor.

Incorporated in the ordering process, AppleCare Protection Plans are available to Tech Data’s channel of authorized Apple resellers.

“TDWarranty provides a seamless process for our solution providers when adding protection plans to their Apple purchases,” said Greg Parsonson, vice president of product marketing for client systems at Tech Data. “By adding a simplified way to purchase AppleCare Protection Plans, solution providers can offer their customers an accurate, dependable, and cost-effective way to protect their Apple products. This is another way Tech Data is working to help our resellers provide the best possible customer experience for their end users.”

TDWarranty incorporates automated, real-time activation of AppleCare Protection Plans, working in tandem with Apple to check serial numbers, hardware, and warranty registration. Solution providers can now ship Macs or iPads from Tech Data directly to the end user, with Tech Data providing coverage through purchase of the protection plan.

“Tech Data’s new warranty tool simplifies the process when adding AppleCare to purchases,” said Lou Acquista, distribution sales manager at Apple. “We want to thank Tech Data for their partnership on the warranty solution for our customers.”
