CLEARWATER, FL--Tech Data Corporation announced that 120 members of its Sales Division will be Digital Signage Certified Experts (DSCE) by the end of the month. That will more than double the number of sales representatives and members of Tech Data’s Digital Signage and Projectors Specialized Business Unit (SBU) who have already earned this certification. No other distributor has as many DSCEs on staff to help IT resellers build and grow their digital signage practices.
“Our team of Digital Signage Certified Experts is helping resellers and vendors take advantage of the rising demand for digital signage,” said Tech Data vice president, peripherals product marketing Wendy Linsky. “That’s reflected in the Digital Signage and Projectors SBU’s outstanding growth during the last year and our performance with leading vendors in the category. The Digital Signage and Projectors SBU net sales grew 22 percent in the last year, highlighted by nearly 40 percent growth in large-format displays and triple-digit growth in digital signage software. We also now hold number-one market share with NEC, Samsung, Sharp, Sony and ViewSonic.”
In addition to investing the time and resources to train its own sales team, Tech Data has partnered with the Digital Signage Certified Experts Group—an industry organization providing vendor-neutral education and certification standards for the digital signage industry—to help resellers obtain the skills they need to build strong, profitable digital signage businesses. Through its TDEducation services, Tech Data offers resellers access to the complete Digital Signage Experts curriculum developed by the Digital Signage Experts Group,
