D&H Distributing Awarded Cooperative Contract Through OMNIA Partners

— New Cooperative Contract Will Accelerate D&H’s Public and Non-Profit Business in the Government and Education Verticals, Creating New Opportunities for Partners —

HARRISBURG, Pa., March 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- D&H Distributing, a leading provider of technology solutions to the North American channel, announces it has been awarded a new cooperative contract by Region 14 Education Service Center in Texas made available to all public agencies through OMNIA Partners/NCPA (National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance). OMNIA Partners is one of the nation’s premier purchasing organizations in the public and non-profit sectors, helping public sector agencies achieve their procurement goals while saving time and money. D&H’s full range of technology solutions is available through OMNIA Partners to all public sector and nonprofit organizations, including K-12, higher education, state, and local governments.

This strengthening of D&H’s state and local government business is in addition to the distributor’s increased focus on federal government business. It encompasses cutting-edge security software and managed security services; plus, other transformative Modern Solutions like collaboration, server, networking, infrastructure and data center solutions, rounding-out D&H’s deep portfolio for the public sector.

Through the OMNIA Partners cooperative contract, D&H is expanding its investment in an already-robust offering for partners selling into the K-12 and SLED (state, local, and education) verticals. D&H will work consultatively with its widespread community of MSP and VAR partners across the US to deliver best-of-breed solutions and services to these additional public sector companies.

D&H offers a roster of valuable programs and best-in-class services to these channel partners, including through D&H’s AIM (Assessment, Implementation, and Management) methodology, which helps MSPs and VARs attach lucrative services to end-to-end solutions while adding value for end-users. This method is applied along with D&H’s enhanced Technology Solutions program, offering pre- and post-sales support in addition to ongoing training and access to a cutting-edge equipment lab focused on transformative solutions for the new hybrid workplace. The distributor’s US-based IT development, support, and dedicated sales team prioritize supply chain integrity and security for its solution providers—a critical element for any channel partner working on sensitive local or national government and public sector projects.

“D&H is thrilled to be working with OMNIA Partners, which represents a wealth of new opportunities for our MSPs and VARs across the country,” said Marty Bauerlein, chief commercial, and consumer officer at D&H Distributing. “We have been growing our commitment to the K-12 and SLED markets for many years, building a solid team to support the unique needs of the larger public sector. Our North American sales model is distinctly appropriate to service these verticals, dedicating a reliable and high-performance in-house team to oversee the needs of these agencies and organizations.”

Hundreds of school districts and government offices turned to D&H throughout the pandemic to help them rapidly transition to online and hybrid work and learning environments, and the distributor’s investments in these sectors has skyrocketed from that point. D&H has increased its focus on enablement through the K-12 Partnerfi Community, delivering exclusive content and opportunities to its partner base and establishing a robust team of sales personnel and seasoned executives to support this business. Partners include some of the largest SLED and K-12 managed services providers in the country.

D&H’s partners in the public sector have delivered the distributor’s managed services offerings including custom etching and asset tagging, device management, WiFi site surveys, help desk services and more. These MSPs are eager to continue to expand their public sector business with D&H through interaction with participating agencies of OMNIA Partners.

“D&H has always provided the guidance, expertise, and integrity we’ve needed to fulfill projects for public sector companies, including some of the largest school districts in the states we service,” said Brad Moore, CEO at Sterling, a leading public sector solution provider headquartered in the Midwest. “We have every confidence in D&H’s model, knowing that their team can offer security and dependability through every phase of our business dealings. There’s never a question as to who is handling our orders, as D&H’s process is transparent and forthright at all points along the customer journey.”
