Your resources are valuable. Partnering with ScanSource can help eliminate the deployment costs from your business, allowing you to offer branding and provisioning services without carrying the costs on your books. We have products on hand when you need them, and how you need them.
- Endpoint provisioning – Our Custom Configuration Center (CCC) provisions phones based on the provisioning profile your customers establish. Utilizing the provisioning service also eliminates delivered phones being DOA. The phones, product branding, and provisioning all come from one place, and are delivered to your end user for out-of-the-box deployment.
- advantEDGE Portal – ScanSource’s advantEDGE Portal helps streamline your order process though our convenient online ordering system and ability to create and manage IP phone provisioning profiles—removing complexity from, and improving efficiency for, your business.
- Product branding – In the CCC, we can label the phone’s box with the extension, or with the name of the individual the phone will go to. We can insert your branded documents—like welcome letters, quick start guides, phone features, and more. You supply us with the document, or you can use our marketing services to help create one. We can even put sleeves with your branding on the outside of the box.
- Drop shipping to end user – We can ship to the end user straight from our facility. And we blind ship, so end users will not know where the shipment is coming from. You don’t have to roll even one of your trucks, go on-site to deliver, or incur additional freight costs by bringing shipments into your warehouse first, and then shipping them back out.
Product returns are inevitable. Elevate your recovery process, improve profitability, and reduce inventory by taking advantEDGE of ScanSource’s reverse logistics programs. Your customers will thank you.
- Return inventory management – Your customers may return a product because they no longer want the service associated with it. Instead of throwing phones away or having them pile up in a closet somewhere, let us take those phones back for you, clean them up, and put them in your “b-stock.” Next time you get an order you can ship that phone, rather than shipping a brand new one.
- Buyback Program – Our Total Coverage Buyback Program helps you recover some of the cost associated with the initial purchase of the phone. By using Network Value, through ScanSource, you can recoup some of the initial cost of the phone, based on the fair market price.
