ScanSource Adds New Solution Offerings in Healthcare Vertical, Bolsters Education and Enablement Resources for Partners
Company adds new cold chain storage product offering from Zebra Technologies
GREENVILLE, S.C. — ScanSource, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCSC), a leading global provider of technology products and solutions, today announced the addition of new solutions, educational resources, and enablement tools for partners serving the healthcare industry. These enhancements fall under ScanSource’s new program, Discover Opportunity. The program, launched at the beginning of the year, is aimed at helping partners easily and effectively serve their customers in a number of different vertical markets, such as retail and grocery, healthcare, education, and warehousing. Discover Opportunity makes it easy for partners to find the right solutions for their customers, in whatever manner they want to consume them, including on premises, cloud, or hybrid.
“Throughout 2020 and into 2021, the healthcare industry has experienced more rapid change than ever before. Consumers now have more say in making decisions about their health – from virtual visits and telemedicine to self-check in and increased interaction with technology while in the healthcare facility,” said John Eldh, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer at ScanSource. “As patient experience and safety continue to be of utmost importance in the healthcare space, the opportunity for our partners to play an integral role in providing the proper technology solutions will continue to increase.”
Discover Opportunity connects partners with the support, educational materials, and technical experts to help them grow their business within the vertical markets they sell into, while ensuring they have access to the emerging technologies and services required to meet the demands of their customers. ScanSource’s Solutions Engineering, Sales, and Business Development teams also have deep industry knowledge across a variety of verticals, delivering added value to partners navigating new growth opportunities. Leveraging this internal expertise, ScanSource’s expanded Discover Opportunity Healthcare Program encompasses all-inclusive, custom-designed resources developed to help turn partners into the experts. The program offers insightful data on the healthcare market and outlines current trends and top solutions available to support evolving needs of healthcare providers. Vertical-specific solutions include communications, telehealth, mobility, connectivity, security, and self-service – all available through ScanSource. Partners will also find an extensive Healthcare Discovery Guide, links to past and upcoming healthcare-based educational webinars and virtual events, and a list of featured solutions that are helping those in the healthcare field be more flexible and adaptable to meet patient needs.
In addition, ScanSource has added Zebra Technologies’ innovative electronic temperature sensors to its existing line card of healthcare products and services, providing partners serving the healthcare vertical with expanded options as they look to round out their end-customer solution offerings. As the global pandemic has shown, carefully monitoring vaccine temperature is critical to public health. Today, pharmaceutical corporations, biotechnology companies and hospitals are using these devices to help improve the storage and handling of hundreds of medical products.
“The World Health Organization has reported that one out of every two healthcare products is temperature-sensitive,” said Nick Patel, M.D., Chief Digital Officer at Prisma Health, who recently spoke at ScanSource’s Virtual Mobility Healthcare Roadshow. The recording can be found here and accessed using passcode mobility!2020. “Temperature monitoring devices will play a vital role in cold chain storage, transportation, and logistics for pharma, life science, and other healthcare opportunities. This is certainly critical as it relates to COVID vaccine potency and safety.”
As part of the Discover Opportunity program, Dr. Patel once again shared his expertise with ScanSource’s partner community during a recent webinar which took place on April 27. Dr. Patel and ScanSource dove into the top technology trends in healthcare, including telemedicine, best practices for solution implementation, and the areas within the vertical where specific solutions are most appropriate and most effective. A replay of the webinar can be found here and can be accessed using passcode Scsc21.
