St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) May 10, 2006
Ergotron, the worldwide leader in computer and video display mounting equipment, today announced “Gov/Ed Connect” an incentive program aimed at government and education resellers. The public healthcare sector is a very significant contributor to Ergotron’s recent growth. Through the “Gov/Ed Connect” program, Ergotron invites engagement with those resellers who service agencies, the military, security and educational institutions, to better support the needs of the broader federal, state and local governments and education markets.
“We see an astounding need within public sector desktop, notebook and mobility computer users for affordable mounting solutions that offer ergonomic benefits,” said Eddie Franklin, Area Vice President of Government Programs for SYNNEX Corporation. “Ergotron’s portfolio of CF™ enabled products fit the bill perfectly.”
Ergotron’s Constant Force (CF™) technology provides smooth lift-and-pivot motion functionality in their growing portfolio of wall mounts, desk mounts, multi-monitor desk stands and carts. The space saving and ergonomic benefits provided by Ergotron products make them well suited for the unique needs of government and education organizations. The innovative, differentiated and very complementary mounting products become a natural addition to the sale of notebook and desktop computer monitors and larger format video displays.
The program, which began April 1, offers resellers a two percent rebate on Ergotron’s top selling products. All qualifying resellers selling into the federal, state, and local government, including education, are eligible for the Gov/Ed Connect program. As part of the program, Ergotron and its distribution partners will provide resellers with the necessary training and other in print and online sales tools that are needed to deliver Ergotron’s world-class display mounting solutions to all levels of government.
“With Gov/ED Connect, Ergotron continues to demonstrate its commitment to supporting government and education resellers throughout the channel,” said Tech Data’s Director of Government and Technical Services Barb Miller. “Our customers leverage manufacturer programs like these to remain competitive and successfully win bids. Gov/ED Connect enables Tech Data and Ergotron to provide resellers the services and pricing they need to profitably grow their businesses.”
