SANTA ANA, Calif. – Ingram Micro Inc.’s digital signage Division today announced it has expanded its alliance with BroadSign International Inc., a provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for managing digital signage networks, to deliver the IT channel’s first digital signage deployment kits supported by ongoing managed services.
Available now exclusively through Ingram Micro, the new digital signage Kits come in a variety of bundles that allow Ingram Micro value-added resellers (VARs) in the U.S. and Canada to sell digital signage packages to end users. BroadSign International provides the software component which includes BroadSign Suite, an easy-to-use SaaS platform with optional high-quality content feeds that can be customized to entertain and inform viewers. These new digital signage kits are an industry first for the IT channel and mark the start of BroadSign’s exclusive relationship with Ingram Micro.
“Our new digital signage Kits are the perfect solution for those resellers in the U.S. and Canada who want to sell and in many cases install digital signage solutions, but just don’t have the expertise or resources in house,” said Kevin Prewett, vice president, digital signage Division, Ingram Micro U.S. “By teaming with BroadSign, we are bringing to market the industry’s first comprehensive set of hosted, end-to-end digital signage media and advertising solutions available through two-tier distribution. What’s more is that we’re offering our channel partners another lucrative, commission-based revenue stream that can be easily incorporated into their existing solutions portfolio and sold to a variety of businesses of all sizes.”
“Until now, professional digital signage deployment has been too complex and expensive for smaller venue owners,” says Brian Dusho, president and chief strategy officer of BroadSign. “Thanks to our collaboration with Ingram Micro, for the first time in this field, all components are now simplified and packaged in such a way that small operators and VARs can take advantage of this growing market at a fraction of previous costs. Venues can easily create their own messages, subscribe to content feeds and boost their core business, while all technology aspects are managed for them.”
Ingram Micro and BroadSign will host a series of informative, online training seminars starting Feb. 10.
