HSC has announced that the Comms Business Convergence Summit South was the most successful show it has ever attended.
Bob Sweetlove, business manager at HSC, stated: “The annual North and South Convergence Summits are seemingly the only remaining fully managed trade events for HSC to exhibit at. They provide a great opportunity to demonstrate face to face with channel resellers why HSC should be the number one choice of distributor for those wishing to embrace mobile.
“The shows also allow us to be more accessible to our existing mobile dealers, who also get the chance to see the latest communications products across the channel.”
The South Summit in 2010 is HSC’s most successful single show to date, commented Sweetlove. “On top of the few hundred scanned leads we took on the two days of the show, we have the details of over forty resellers with whom we had deep conversations at the event about taking on mobile.
“Many of these have already signed up for trade accounts,” Sweetlove continued. “The most successful element of our pitch appears to be the fact that we are hosting a unique ‘Introduction to Mobile’ training course on 1st December in Birmingham. As long as they have signed up and been accepted for a trade account, new resellers will be able get a thorough overview of the mobile market, shown how to construct and deploy mobile deals and educated as to exactly what is involved to support customers thereafter.
“With mobile becoming an increasingly critical component to the business communication solution all channel resellers should be building it into their armoury and this is a great first step. One lucky attendee will walk away with a free Apple iPad in the prize draw held on the day,” noted Sweetlove.
Any reseller wishing to be able to sell mobile to SoHo and SME customers will benefit from the HSC Introduction to Mobile training course on 1st December.
HSC provides a one stop shop of multi-branded, competitively priced airtime, hardware and software, all on one simple to use trade account. This is backed up by expert training, marketing and technical support and experienced telesales and field account management. HSC’s parent company, Carphone Warehouse, affords the business strong buying power, the benefit of which is passed down to its dealers, Sweetlove adds.
“Put simply, HSC makes mobile easy for new and existing dealer customers,” remarked Sweetlove. “This forms part of our vision to be the best mobile distributor in the UK, catering to the needs of the independent dealer.”
