ScanSource, Inc., a South Carolina-based distributor, has announced the addition of new solutions, educational resources, and enablement tools for partners serving the healthcare industry. These enhancements fall under ScanSource’s new program, “Discover Opportunity,” which is aimed at helping partners more easily and effectively target vertical markets, such as retail and grocery, healthcare, education, and warehousing.
“Throughout 2020 and into 2021, the healthcare industry has experienced more rapid change than ever before,” said John Eldh, chief revenue officer at ScanSource. “Consumers now have more say in making decisions about their health – from virtual visits and telemedicine to self-check in and increased interaction with technology while in the healthcare facility. As patient experience and safety continue to be of utmost importance in the healthcare space, the opportunity for our partners to play an integral role in providing the proper technology solutions will continue to increase.”
Leveraging internal expertise, the program offers data on the healthcare market and outlines current trends and top solutions available to support evolving needs of healthcare providers. Vertical-specific solutions include communications, telehealth, mobility, connectivity, security, and self-service. Partners also have access to links to past and upcoming healthcare-based educational webinars and virtual events, and a list of featured solutions.
In addition, ScanSource has added Zebra Technologies’ electronic temperature sensors to its existing line card of healthcare products and services. As the global pandemic has shown, carefully monitoring vaccine temperature is critical to public health.
The initiative is designed to connect partners with the support, educational materials, and technical experts to help them grow their business within the vertical markets they sell into, while ensuring they have access to the emerging technologies and services required to meet the demands of their customers.
