Since its launch at the beginning of 2010, ScanSource says its European healthcare portal has seen impressive growth and has now reached the 300-user mark. The community of reseller users looks set to grow even more in 2011 as increasing numbers of resellers take note of the business opportunities on offer in the healthcare vertical.
The healthcare portal, which can be found at www.scansourcehealthcare.eu, is a microsite dealing exclusively with data capture, mobility and infrastructure products in healthcare, and provides resellers information relating to this important vertical. ScanSource expects to see more resellers from the comms channel move into healthcare as the value added distributor’s vendors look to promote their healthcare lines through the portal in 2011.
“Healthcare is a vertical where access to information is critical,” said Kim Jennings, UK Sales Manager, ScanSource Communications Europe. “There are a whole host of regulations that resellers need to be aware of and these can only be found by spending considerable effort searching across a multitude of different websites.”
“Our healthcare portal gathers all the relevant material into one convenient, centralised location, with the aim of making it easier for resellers to find out everything they need to know about working in the healthcare vertical and therefore makes it easy even for resellers not previously working in healthcare to move into this rapidly growing vertical.
Alongside this library of crucial information, resellers get an overview of products, solutions and value added services that ScanSource offers with its vendor partners to maximise the benefits for resellers of targeting the healthcare market.”
