Tech Distributors Converge to Form TDAI

As the introduction of new age technologies on cloud, big data and virtualization are creating new opportunities of distribution and channel alignment, technology distribution companies are coming together to create Technology Distribution Association of India or (TDAI).

This Association is set to work the motto of “we can only build when we know how to sustain”. This is unique non- profit association in Asia Pacific & India, where its core objective is to create a transparent technology led distribution services sector in India where value addition would be driving the idea of distribution. While maintaining a strategic and healthy channel through good governance and appropriate compliance standards, from the manufacturer to the end user, TDAI will support the industry’s development and expansion while ensuring business hygiene.

Making it one of the most apex bodies in IT segment, the current members of TDAI collectively contribute nearly Rs 50,000 Crores (~ US$ 8 Billion) annually towards the total IT industry business in the country. And moving forward, TDAI will provide all industry stake holders a common ground for deliberating on regulatory issues that impact them, with a view to take those up with relevant authorities for resolution. It will act as a platform through which they could contribute inputs and information that would help shape the industry. TDAI will facilitate interaction with various Dealer Associations on common issues faced by the distribution eco-system as also a forum for discussion with Vendors on taking the channel business to its next stage of development.

The current members of TDAI include: Avnet Technology Solutions, Compuage Infocom Limited, Inflow Technologies Private Limited, Ingram Micro India Limited, Iris Computers Limited, Neoteric Infomatique Limited, Rashi Peripherals Private Limited, Redington India Limited, Savex Computers Limited and Supertron Electronics Limited.
