D&H Distributing is set to begin offering the Microsoft Surface for Business portfolio of devices to its channel partners.
D&H will provide the portfolio of devices including Laptop 4, Laptop Studio, Laptop Go 2, Pro 8 and Pro 7+. The portfolio also includes Pro X, Go 3, Duo 2, Studio 2 and Hub 2S.
Along with Microsoft 365, these devices will play a major part in the distributor’s new modern solutions initiative. The strategy helps channel partners better deliver end-to-end, cloud-based software, hardware and services to a range of end-users.

D&H’s Ongoing Focus on Work from Home, Business Continuity
The addition of Microsoft Surface for Business devices is essential to D&H’s ongoing focus on work-from-home and business continuity. It supports the evolving needs of the market as the hybrid workplace continues to take shape.
D&H said these Microsoft devices provide a new offering for its partners in target markets such as education and health care.
The distributor will offer the devices in conjunction with the Microsoft 365 solution as part of a bundle. It will deliver the bundle through a monthly subscription. This allows companies to assign IT expenses to their operational budgets, as opposed to the capital budget. That provides a more economical way to maintain an updated computing environment. In addition, it plays into D&H’s ongoing built for growth initiative, which continues to bring new opportunities and options to promote its partners’ expansion and profitability.
D&H’s Success Path to Cloud
D&H will fold content around Microsoft Surface for Business into its Success Path to Cloud program. This gives partners resources, training and support to help them create a successful managed services practice that incorporates cloud solutions. D&H will bundle white-glove and deployment services along with sales of the Microsoft devices to support solution providers as they deliver this technology on site at school, medical or other facility campuses.
Jason Jones is Microsoft‘s senior partner development manager for Microsoft Cloud.
“D&H has an upstanding reputation built on supporting its partners and developing their businesses, helping solution providers take advantage of high-performance computing as part of a richly functional, cloud-enabled workplace,” he said. “As the market continues to get more complex, involving different degrees of hybrid infrastructures, we’re glad to extend our relationship with D&H to include our flagship Microsoft Surface for Business devices.”
