With the past year of disruption surrounding COVID and multiple years of uncertainty surrounding Brexit too, it is vital for suppliers, businesses, channels and economies to create opportunity and deliver positivity and newness for UK customers.
Data Direct is open for business. While the past year has seen some shift away from the core copier and print business towards PPE distribution, WFH (working from home) solutions and hugely relevant innovations, including SmartMister, Data Direct says that there are many more opportunities still presenting themselves in the UK market.
As a distribution partner to many hundreds of businesses in the UK, Data Direct offers its customers solutions over and above the core product ranges to help with their business model to becoming more cost-effective, streamlined and efficient. The company explained that increasingly customers are looking for newness, relevancy and incremental products as market trends and consumption environments change. These, the company says, are opportunities for brands, manufacturers, suppliers and innovators that it can facilitate.
Commenting on Data Direct / Access UK, Peter Cowan, Procurement Director said: “Through 2020, we opened up distribution and enabled the successful launch of multiple products in the UK. With procurement, selling and marketing expertise, we offer businesses access to UK distribution to create opportunity for all. With Access UK specifically, we’re looking for new products/ innovations to add to our product range – primarily aimed at supporting the office equipment/ IT channel, but also interested in more diverse (non-perishable) products.
“This strategy is aimed at enhancing the capabilities and scope of our existing dealer channel, while offering greater and deeper engagement with our suppliers, both old and new.”
