— New Partner Services Marketing Materials, Seminars, and the Most Well Attended Webcast in the Company’s History Will Help VARs Transition Customers to the New OS —
BRAMPTON, ONT – November 10, 2015 – D&H Canada, the leading North American computer products and consumer electronics distributor, announces it is offering programs and training opportunities to support resellers throughout the launch of Microsoft’s new Windows 10 operating system. Windows 10-oriented content includes an on-demand Solutions Lab webcast that can be streamed via dandh.ca until July 2016. This presentation, originally broadcast with a live Q&A session, commanded the largest audience in the history of D&H’s Solutions Lab program. Microsoft Windows 10 was officially released this summer.
D&H has also developed a Windows 10 Partner Services marketing template, outlining messages to help resellers reiterate the benefits of the system. It reviews both familiar (and Windows 7-like) features such as the Start menu; plus enhanced elements like the Cortana digital assistant and the new Microsoft Edge built-in browser/Microsoft presented a standing-room-only Windows 10 seminar at D&H’s recent Toronto Technology Trade Show on September 23.
D&H carries an array of new Windows 10-based computers from top-flight partners such as HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, ASUS and Acer. Microsoft is offering a no-cost upgrade to Windows 10 for a range of legacy machines in the marketplace that were originally sold with Windows 8.1 (redeemable within a year of purchase). This opens the door for resellers to initiate new dialogs with their customers, which often lead to other upgrades and/or service opportunities.
“D&H Canada has been a long-term supporter of Microsoft, and has had a Windows 10 upgrade path in place for VARs for some time,” said Greg Tobin, general manager at D&H Distributing. “We’re looking to provide whatever training and support the market requires, including educating resellers and end-users about new features, and helping to make sure everything from upgrades to fresh installation go smoothly. Response to our first trainings on Windows 10 shows there is notable interest in the channel, so we want to deliver as much engagement to our customers as possible in supporting demand for the new OS.”
