Seattle Wash. - July 31, 2018 - Zonar, the leader in smart fleet management technology, today announced a program enabling technology solution providers to sell Zonar solutions to businesses and schools. Authorized resellers will be able to sell and support Zonar solutions for customers of all sizes, creating new revenue opportunities for partners and easier access to Zonar smart fleet offerings for more businesses.
"The introduction of Zonar's reseller program is part of our ongoing commitment to the channel and helps our partners grow their business and expand their reach into other verticals," said Gary Schmidt, vice president of business solutions at Zonar. "Our channel partners are instrumental to our company's growth and the Zonar reseller program will ensure everything we do – from the development of our products and solutions to our sales, support and marketing frameworks – supports them."
Zonar will provide resellers with training, support, and tools for sales and marketing, as well as access to tools for integrating Zonar solutions into their customers’ business operations. Resellers can bill their customers directly, enabling them to retain a close relationship with customers. Resellers can also bundle additional services and support with Zonar’s industry-leading smart fleet management solutions. Zonar will provide resellers with subject matter experts for any customer-specific business and technical requirements.
Zonar is rolling out the program to pilot partners across North America.
"The program also will expand opportunities for Zonar partners that do not offer fleet management technology today," added Schmidt. "As resellers join the program, Zonar will extend its reach into the markets it serves and the resellers will gain entry into Zonar’s market differentiation – if you take into consideration the pace of innovation, the collaboration tools, and customer support – which is not available anywhere else."
