ScanSource: Mobility Is Even Bigger Than Cloud


The MobilETC was among several ScanSource offerings announced specific to the various business units. Also new, for Catalyst Telecom partners, is a quoting tool called CoPilot that enables easier quoting of Avaya-centric solutions created in ScanSource's Avaya Solution Designer, tying together information about rebates, promotions, special bids, price calculations and other data to then provide to customers.

Elsewhere, ScanSource Security is now offering a selection tool called SNAP, which allows solution providers to search and evaluate security products based on criteria such as manufacturer, part number and product specification.

ScanSource also debuted an executive briefing center at its Lenexa, Kan., office location specific for Polycom unified communications products, and it confirmed that ScanSource Security is now designated as an encryption services organization (ESO), allowing ScanSource to provide full software and encryption key injection to security products on behalf of its security vendors.

In addition, Chief, the division of Milestone AV Technologies specializing in mounts, racks and interactive products, is now a ScanSource vendor partner.
