Arrow ECS embraces Channel Management

The convergence of technology and the increased competition in the marketplace among resellers and vendors alike, are creating demand for intensified support from a distributor. As the leading value-added distributor, Arrow ECS provide the best answer through a channel management approach based on three components: channel development, market development and services.

Channel development – providing comprehensive support for all our resellers’ business needs to lessen their load, it includes initiatives like renewal management and marketing accompaniment.
Market development – becoming more embedded with our suppliers’ growth strategies by leveraging our knowledge of the partners channel to help them reach new markets as well as helping our partners penetrate new markets through a solutions approach and effective marketing programs.
Channel services – enabling resellers to not only focus on their core business by outsourcing non-core activities to us, but also to generate more profits by offering increased support to their customers. It includes, among others, education, consulting, asset management, financial and managed services.
