Tech Data Corp. resellers who offer Apple products now can provision warranties as well.
The distributor on Wednesday introduced TDWarranty, which enables real-time activation of Apple Protection Plans for Apple products purchased through 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," said Greg Parsonson, vice president of Product Marketing, Client Systems at Tech Data.
TDWarranty works with Apple to check serial numbers, hardware, and warranty registration. And retail partners can sell the protection plans at point of sale as well.
Tech Data said TDWarranty is meant to eliminate data entry errors, and provide immediate invoicing and proof of coverage for end users, and reporting for partners.
