Popular Multi-Level Program Adds Enhancements for Online Project Registration, Loaners, and More
Los Angeles, CA (April XX, 2015) – Arecont Vision®, the industry leader in IP-based megapixel camera technology, has announced important enhancements to its popular tiered Reseller Partner Program for security dealers and systems integrators.
Key updates range from entirely online project registration and thirty-day demo requests to enhanced Arecont Vision® University online and classroom certification training and to easier access to the Arecont Vision® MegaLab™ for configuration testing and validation.
Details of the new enhancements to the Arecont Vision® Reseller Partner Program include:
Online Project Registration
The highly acclaimed Arecont Vision® Project Registration program is now online to ensure rapid acknowledgment and turnaround of registration requests for Authorized Resellers. The program continues to lead the industry in ensuring that Authorized Resellers who have invested the time with their customers to design the best solution are rewarded with an additional discount. In this manner, other resellers are not able to enter the deal at the last minute and try to win based on price alone.
“Not all project registration programs are created equal. Vendors that provide two or three additional discount points don’t really do much to separate the designing integrator from others that may swoop in and try to steal the deal away,” said Scott Schafer, Arecont Vision® Executive Vice President. “We deliver a substantial discount to allow our Authorized Resellers to make more money when they sell our product line. That becomes an important part of how they can continue to make a profit and grow their business in a changing market while delivering superior technology and value to the customer.”
The process is now completely online and designed to be easy to use.
Arecont Vision® University CPCP (Channel Partner Certification Program)
Arecont Vision® University equips Reseller Partner Program members, architects, engineers, consultants, and other industry professionals with the knowledge and tools needed to design, install, implement, and support megapixel solutions through the Channel Partner Certification Program (CPCP) and the Advanced CPCP Program. Since 2009, nearly 5,000 students have completed a mix of classroom and online training through Arecont Vision® University. Many of the courses offer continuing education credits.
Newly updated classroom and online training modules are designed to get Authorized Resellers up to speed quickly and to maintain their knowledge with the latest information on leading megapixel camera products and technology.
Online 30 Day Demo Program
Online requests for Arecont Vision® demonstration units are now serviced even faster than before. The entire program has been simplified to get the equipment needed to the Authorized Reseller quickly for their upcoming customer demos and trials.
The demo program ensures that the reseller can focus on demonstrating the best possible solution to meet customer requirements for registered projects, rather than making do with the equipment they may have on hand.
Since its launch in 2010, the Arecont Vision® MegaLab™ has been widely used by Arecont Vision® Technology Partner Program members for their video management system software, hardware, or accessories. Technology Partner Program members have used the MegaLab™ to validate new software releases and products and to test and troubleshoot configurations so that they can deliver the best possible integration and reliability for customer projects.
Authorized Resellers are now able to leverage the MegaLab™ for their own configuration, validation, and testing purposes in support of registered projects and installations of Arecont Vision® cameras without creating an extensive test facility of their own.
Customer satisfaction surveys show that our customers rate Arecont Vision® products as very high quality, and recognize that the company stands behind our products.
When a problem does occur, advanced replacement is an aspect of the industry-leading RMA process that Arecont Vision® delivers. The goal is to provide a rapid turnaround to get the customer up and running quickly.
Requests can now be made online, and Arecont Vision® support will assist with remote diagnosis to further speed the process.
Other program benefits continue to be available to security industry dealers and systems integrators who participate in the Arecont Vision® Reseller Partner Program.
The program’s three tiers are Gold, Silver, and Bronze for Authorized Resellers. Each level receives access to highly competitive pricing via the Arecont Vision® network of Authorized Distributors.
Through the program, Authorized Resellers have access to many benefits and resources to help ensure their success in the sale and support of Arecont Vision® products. Included:
- Tiered pricing and promotions
- Sales leads and marketing support
- Sales and design support from regional sales and field application engineer resources
- Partner Portal for technical and design tools, sales collateral, and presentations
- Special warranty enhancements
- Minimum Advertised Price policy
Gold and Silver Authorized Resellers receive additional benefits to match their commitment to the program and to customers.
Through these existing and newly updated program benefits, the Arecont Vision® Reseller Partner Program continues to grow and deliver world-class benefits and resources to Authorized Resellers worldwide.
