New Remote Programming Offer from Catalyst Telecom

Up-front implementation services are designed to help resellers reduce on-site time and improve cash flow.

To help reduce on-site implementation time for its voice, video, and data convergence solutions, Greenville, S.C.-based distributor Catalyst Telecom (a sales unit of ScanSource, Inc.) is making its remote programming services available to resellers. By using the services, resellers engage Catalyst Telecom in providing up-front implementation procedures before a communications solution is shipped to the end-user customer.

Services include system design and programming; firmware verification; license key validation; modem, driver, and memory installation; burn in; and testing. Not only does the use of these services mean less on-site time for the reseller, but improved cash flow, because the number of days from installation to invoice is reduced by up to about two weeks, according to Catalyst Telecom. The distributor also says there are significantly fewer DOAs and RMAs, because of advance preparation and testing.

"Our customers are seeing great value in our remote programming offer, as we act as an extension of their business to ensure their end-user customer's solution is ready to go with no errors and no delay," says John Black, president of Catalyst Telecom. "Most importantly, this is a key way for resellers to improve their cash flow and credit availability, which is so important in today's economy."
