Tech Data brings Lightspeed Systems to A/NZ with new distie deal

Tech Data has announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with education technology provider Lightspeed Systems in Australia and New Zealand. 

As part of the new A/NZ agreement, Tech Data will provide its partner network with Lightspeed’s integrated solutions portfolio for smarter school networks including Web Filter, Relay, Mobile Manager, and Management Bundle for Windows.

Tech Data Australia and New Zealand country manager Wendy O’Keeffe says her company is excited to join forces with Lightspeed, with the partnership serving to bolster the company’s education offering.  

“Lightspeed is a powerful addition to our solutions portfolio, enhancing our offering in the education space,” O’Keeffe says. 

“The education sector can present some great opportunities as IT spending continues to increase to keep environments technologically relevant and counter security threats. Tech Data partners can now leverage Lightspeed’s customizable and scalable solutions to drive profitable opportunities within this market.” 

Lightspeed Systems is an education technology provider that partners with schools to deliver mobility and management solution programs.

Partnered with 6,500 districts in the United States and 25,000 schools around the world, Lightspeed Systems offers integrated solutions for K-12 school networks.

According to Lightspeed, their solution portfolio addresses the increasingly prevalent issue of evolving vulnerabilities as a result of an escalating amount of connected devices in the modern education environment.

The new partnership follows a string of APAC distribution agreements for Tech Data, including recent deals with Dbvisit and Autodesk

At the time the latter deal was struck, Tech Data ASEAN vice president Bennett Wong said, “Our new relationship with Autodesk in ASEAN reinforces our commitment to providing channel partners and their customers with an end-to-end portfolio.”
