IT distributor Tech Data Corporation has partnered with SquareTrade, an industry protection plan provider, to make SquareTrade available to its more than 60,000 resellers in the United States. Tech Data is currently the only distributor in the IT channel offering SquareTrade, according to the distributor. The partnership makes SquareTrade protection plans immediately available for tablets, TVs and projectors, laptops and desktops, printers and scanners, cameras and camcorders, MP3 players, and monitors.

“With SquareTrade, our solution providers can offer their customers a simple, dependable, and cost effective way to protect their IT product investments,” says Bill Brooks, vice president, technical services at Tech Data. “We understand that products break frequently in the technology-centric lives we lead, which is why we feel strongly about giving our solution providers added assurance by offering protection plans. SquareTrade's easy online management platform also makes for a no-hassle experience for our solution providers and end-users.”

SquareTrade's protection plans through Tech Data cover all mechanical and electrical failures from normal use, including 100 percent of the cost of parts and labor with no deductibles across all product lines. Already available to consumers at Amazon, Costco, Sam's Club, TigerDirect, Toshiba, Vizio, eBay, QVC, and more, SquareTrade offers 24/7 customer support and a five-day or less service guarantee.
