Tactile Technologies and Toshiba join forces!

Toshiba has appointed Tactile Technologies as distributor for the brand’s Point-of-Sale (PoS) systems and retail range of products in South Africa. 

We’re honoured to be appointed as distributor for the Toshiba range of products, not only because it will strengthen our portfolio even further, but also because Toshiba is an industry giant, with a history that dates back to the late 1800s, says Mauro Mercuri, director for the Tactile Technologies Group.

“Tactile and Toshiba are two established forces in South Africa's retail and PoS industry and now that we are working together I believe that we will become a truly formidable team,” he adds. Toshiba is our first “power brand”, explains Mercuri, noting that this partnership will allow Tactile to compete for those accounts that are looking for long established, proven and trusted brands.

As a Toshiba distributor, Tactile will also be appointed as a warranty support centre, which allows us to add further value to our future and existing accounts, Mercuri adds.

When choosing a distributor for the Toshiba range of products, Steve van der Linde, regional sales manager at Toshiba, says that their partner businesses must meet a range of requirements. These include:

Thorough knowledge of the retail sector and specifically Point-of-Sale;
Proven success in the market;
Established network of resellers;
Active involvement in promoting the ToshibaGCS brand.
National coverage.

“For several years, Tactile Technologies has been successfully addressing the market segment for which ToshibaGCS’s products and services are ideally suited,” says van der Linde. Their professional approach to our relationship and willingness to provide services beyond simply distributing products, aligns well with our ever growing business in the region and our expanding product portfolio, he continues. 

“The combination of our individual strengths will allow us to provide our existing, and new customers, withan enhanced service offering and drive innovation into the South African retail market.”
