Tech Data uses SITEFORUM Social Networking for Partner Management

Tech Data, one of the world's largest distributors of technology products, connects print experts in Germany's first community for Managed Print Services (MPS).

Tech Data uses SITEFORUM Social Networking for Partner Management
With their new collaboration centre, Tech Data helps IT software and hardware producers achieve better business results while Tech Data builds customer loyalty.


The "Managed Print" Community is set up as a private network group within Partnercloud, the social business collaboration platform for ICT companies. Partnercloud is run by technology marketing specialist Cloudbridge Consulting and is based on the fully scaleable and flexible ALL-IN-ONE Social Business Suite from SITEFORUM, the leading provider of Social Business and Community Software.

Members of the Managed Print Community have access to a dedicated news and events page including RSS feeds, an MPS glossary, information about industry, solutions and manufacturers as well as a discussion forum. Using the online chat feature members can chat in realtime.  Future activities wil include Virtual Events and online Virtual Meetings.


The MPS Community enables member interaction and synergies which have helped turn this business segment from hardware sales to a full service proposition. The idea for such a community first evolved in mid-2010 and since then Tech Data has been looking for a suitable platform. Tech Data quickly agreed that Partnercloud is the perfect environment to support this initiative and more than 100 customers have become active members since the group was launched at CEBIT 2011.
