Technology Channels Services (TCS) have launched Tech2Clear, a radical new approach to the perennial problem of finding buyers for excess, obsolete & out-dated stock held by vendors, distributors and resellers.
This new service has been developed by Robert Peckham, the founder of the Mac Technology Association (MTA) and now a Director of the Technology Channels Association following the MTA merger with the PCA last summer.
The MTA were offering MacClearance - a similar service for Apple dealers in the Mac-reseller channel, but this operation didn't fit with the new TCA's plans, so it made sense to separate it into a new project and expand it for use by the whole channel explained Robert. Tech2Clear is offering a radically different, more direct approach to the age-old problem of reselling excess, obsolete and out-dated stocklines direct to end-users.
MacClearance was originally a service for resellers, but was lately receiving an increasing number of enquiries from vendors and distributors who were unhappy with the capital returns they were seeing from traditional disposal services. MacClearance simply wasn't big enough to handle the volumes of stock being offered, so Tech2Clear is a much larger venture, offering a new system designed to optimise the capital returns for our supplier vendors and distributors. Robert explains the idea; Unlike other stock disposal services around, we prefer to work in long-term partnership with our suppliers over their stock issues, and by making sure our sellthrough service is quick and efficient, we minimise our overhead to maximise the capital return to our vendors, distributors and other suppliers.
Using all the usual routes to market for selling through their acquired stock alongside their own webstore, Tech2Clear are operating from a 5,000 sq.ft warehouse in Oxfordshire with a fulltime packaging and despatch team.
Tech2Clear are now inviting enquiries from vendors, distributors or resellers with any stocklines that are obsolete, out-of-date, excess to requirements or are simply taking up too much space in their warehouses or stockrooms, including accessories, software, memory, networking hardware and cables, printer consumables, promotional merchandise and any other items that are looking for a new owner.
