Tech Data Europe will supply Google’s indirect channel across Europe with services around the Chromecast media streaming device. Chromecast has just gone on sale in the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland.
Through the agreement, Tech Data Mobile Solutions will provide complete fulfilment services, including logistics, transportation management, forecasting, procurement consolidation, inventory management, invoicing and collection.
“Tech Data Mobile Solutions is pleased to be selected by Google to manage their end-to-end supply chain operations and distribution of Chromecast throughout Europe,” said Rod Millar, senior vice president, Tech Data Mobile Solutions. “Together, we will provide authorized retailers the highest levels of expertise and service.”
As part of the agreement, Tech Data Mobile Solutions has created a dedicated central account management team and a collection of services, including forecasting, procurement and supply chain reporting, that enables Google retail specialists to commercially manage all European sales through a single Tech Data operational interface.
