    They say there’s no time like the present, and never has that statement been truer than when looking at the unparalleled opportunity for agents in the channel – specifically in relation to the cloud. From increased scalability to enhanced security and agility, it’s no secret that the cloud is becoming the new norm. In fact, the cloud is the very foundation on which emerging technologies such as AI, machine learning and IoT are built. With Channel Connect just around the corner, I’m excited to share exactly why the cloud industry is booming, and why our partners and their customers are well-positioned to reap the benefits.

    Healthcare risks are frightening. A baby is misidentified at birth, or when being discharged from the hospital to go home. A patient is given the wrong medication, and has an allergic reaction. A message doesn’t get from the medical staff to a doctor in sufficient time to deal with an emergency. These are only three of the risks that can be reduced in—or even eliminated from— today’s healthcare settings, simply by using the right barcode scanner. But how do you choose the right scanner for your customer? Looking at how they’ll be employed is a good place to start.

    When you consider all of its attributes, it’s no surprise the tablet is increasingly finding itself the star of modern workplace solutions. First of all, you just can’t beat the price. The simple tablet easily takes the place of expensive and cumbersome electronic hardware such as CPUs, laptops, scanners, and cameras (just to name a few); plus, updating software is as easy as downloading an app. And who could forget the tablet’s environmentally-friendly attributes—such as turning media like paper and ink into extraneous supplies? But perhaps it’s the fact that it can go wherever the user goes, instantly transporting information with the tap of a finger that makes the tablet the ultimate champion in workplace solutions. In fact, the only challenge a tablet seems to have is how tough you can make it and still enjoy its long list of conveniences.

    The healthcare industry is booming, but it isn’t always an area that partners may think of when it comes to delivering unified communications (UC) and security solutions. However, as healthcare providers continue to look for ways to cut costs without sacrificing quality of care, many have decided to invest in telemedicine, a revolutionary way to remotely diagnose and treat patients. While it won’t ever replace the necessity of some in-person doctor visits, it can boost efficiency and outcomes for both the provider and the patient.

    In a recent survey ScanSource conducted of SMB retailers across various business verticals, 96 percent of owner/operators said they are in charge of determining the investments their businesses must make, and 84 percent said they like trying new things for their business. SMB retailers know they are competing with big-box stores and online empires, and they look to deliver outstanding customer service in order to gain repeat business. While we have seen a rise in e-commerce over the last decade, many consumers agree that shopping in a brick and mortar store is still necessary. An online shopping experience most notably lacks one thing: the unparalleled customer experience that can be created in-store.
