PPDS Gains TAA Compliance on Philips Displays
PPDS has achieved TAA compliance status for an evolving line of military-grade secure 4K UHD digital signage and video wall displays.
Part of a continued investment, expansion, and ambitious growth strategy in North America, TAA (Trade Act Agreement) compliance now permits the procurement of Philips professional displays for federal, state, and local government institution projects and installations.
Created in 1979, TAA compliance requires products and goods considered for governmental use to be manufactured or substantially transformed in the US or in designated TAA countries. Products for government use are available via selected commercial companies—such as distributors—with Federal Supply Schedule government contracts.
PPDS: Meeting Market Demand
Bringing significant new business opportunities to both PPDS and the U.S. government, the announcement follows sustained demand from PPDS’ U.S. channel partners, and includes the company’s Philips 4K D-Line* digital signage and Philips X-Line video wall displays, which are now fully TAA compliant and immediately available.
PPDS has identified Education, Homeland Security, Justice, Commerce, Transportation, and Energy among key executive departments where it can bring positive transformative change, working benefits, and energy efficiency opportunities.
Additional Philips professional display products across the PPDS portfolio will be added in due course, which, coupled with solutions from PPDS’ evolving third-party partnerships (such as Crestron, Logitech, and Intel) are set to provide a complete suite of visual solutions to the U.S. Government, each with extensive customization, control, and remote management (including central) capabilities.
“Today’s announcement marks a significant step forward for PPDS in North America and is part of our overall long-term strategic global growth ambitions to exponentially expand Philips professional display sales,” said Franck Racapé, Head of Global Commercial for PPDS. “Securing TAA status on our Philips X- and D- Line products will open doors not only for us and our reseller partners, but for a multitude of government departments, where our solutions can bring positive changes and significant benefits to its teams for smarter and more efficient working and communications.”
