"We're trying to make it easy for the resellers to be able to sell these products," said Pierre Richer, executive vice president, sales and marketing, NEC Display Solutions, Itasca, Ill.

"These are bundled solutions that we're going to SKU-up through the distributors. We're taking many components and putting them in one box and we're making an investment to make sure that it's easy for the channel," Richer said.

"We're a display company but we're not just focused on the display, because signage is so much more than a display There's so much revenue associated with that market, and we want to help the VARS get into that business. Everybody wants to get into signage and they don't know how. This is like a starter kit for digital signage," he said.

The bundles should be a win for NEC and for its resellers who are established digital signage solution providers or those who are looking to begin incorporating digital signage into their portfolios.

"We're all about growing the solutions base. As a hardware company, you have to have a solution wrapped around your product. That's the key. Everybody is searching for solutions and added revenue and margins and that's what we do best," Richer said.
