Epson’s new image way partner program helps value-added resellers

Epson’s ImageWay Partner Program offers two tiers – Elite and Preferred – with strategic benefits granted at each membership level to include those partners who are just beginning to build their business with Epson, as well as those who are high-volume resellers. As a member of the ImageWay program, resellers will have access to a variety of tools and resources across a number of categories, including: sales incentives, marketing and technical support, an exclusive finance program, education and training opportunities. These benefits can include sales support for developing business opportunities and closing critical sales. Sales support services include substantially discounted demonstration equipment, free evaluation products, pre-sales support, discounts for government and educational institutions, sales incentives and more.

Epson’s ImageWay program is the latest example of our ongoing commitment to the growth and success of the reseller channel," said Tom French, Director, Commercial Channels, Epson America, Inc. "By building on our proven channel programs, such as the Epson Envision(SM) Partner program and the Epson Brighter Futures(R) program, ImageWay delivers the comprehensive resources and support that our partners rely on to stay competitive while continuing to grow their business."

The ImageWay program will initially support Epson projectors. Partners will receive access to Epson resources around the clock through the company’s ImageWay web portal, where they will find a wealth of information and unique programs to help promote their business, deliver advanced solutions and exceed their customers’ expectations. Members will also receive ongoing communication from Epson through e-mail alerts, newsletters and online training opportunities.

The ImageWay program is the latest initiative by Epson to help support and grow the reseller channel. In March of 2009, Epson was honored as "Channel Best Seller" and "Biggest Share Gain" holder in the projector category in the 2009 CRN Bestsellers List.
