Starting on May 17th, D-Tools Cloud will include a direct pricing integration to Tech Data for Sony manufactured products. Using the pricing integration, authorized Tech Data dealers can get up to date, dealer specific pricing via the D-Tools Cloud to Tech Data integration.
Unlike other direct partner integrations, our Tech Data integration includes a unique method for first authorizing you as a valid dealer. The Tech Data integration leverages OAuth to validate your account with Tech Data. Authorizing your access to Tech Data's pricing services requires the same username and password that you use to sign into other Tech Data online portals and services.
In addition, the Tech Data integration requires users to make an additional choice to correctly sign in to Tech Data:
Find the Tech Data supplier in the Supplier list available in the Catalog>Suppliers tab.
Click on the "Get my pricing" link to start the dealer authorization process.
