Pointer has become the first UK integrator to achieve Premium Partner status as part of the newly re-launched Panasonic Security Partner Programme.
The Japanese manufacturer refreshed its channel partner programme earlier this year and installers and integrators involved in video surveillance installations were invited to participate, with their status determined by their level of product training, sales volume and end user feedback.
Premium Partner status gives Pointer – a specialist in the design, installation, service, maintenance and monitoring of electronic security systems – access to additional support from the surveillance systems manufacturer as well as access to pre-qualified sales leads via the dedicated Partner Portal.
Additional benefits include five-year warranties, advanced product replacement, training, technical advice and preferential placement within the Panasonic ‘Where To Buy’ listing on the website.
“Pointer has proven to be an excellent partner for Panasonic,” said Gerard Figols, European category manager at Panasonic. “The company’s expertise in high-end, mission-critical installations suits our product portfolio. We receive a large number of end user leads requesting solutions or products every day, and Premium Partner status means Pointer will have first refusal on these opportunities.”
Pointer has been in business for nearly 50 years. Providing services throughout the UK, it has the knowledge and experience to deliver large-scale projects for blue chip clients that recognise the importance of managing risk for their staff, property and key data.
Pointer’s director Sandy Rowan explained: “We’re delighted to have achieved Premium Partner status with Panasonic. It’s a direct indication of the dedication that our sales and engineering team has when it comes to training and improving their market knowledge. We think that our customers can benefit greatly from Pointer being a Premium Partner of Panasonic, not least in terms of the greater access to support and replacement technology that this affords.”
