Mayflex the Converged IP Solutions distributor, is pleased to announce that Paxton, the UK market leading manufacturer of electronic access control, is launching the free IP Access Control Bootcamp, to get infrastructure installers started in the security market.
Mayflex is working closely with Paxton to encourage their established channel of infrastructure installers to take a look at the access control proposition from Paxton, which could easily complement their core infrastructure activities and add another revenue stream to their business.
Tracey Calcutt Marketing Manager said “Paxton have designed a comprehensive programme that highlights to installers how easy it is to sell, quote and install IP access control to a building’s network, leaving them confident to go through the process themselves from start to finish.”
Tracey continued “This fits perfectly into our own ‘Things Change’ campaign which was launched earlier in the year to highlight, to the infrastructure channel in particular, the fact that more solutions are now being converged onto one IP network, thereby saving time, money, space and energy and those partners that look to change and embrace these technologies, are more likely to see the benefits and take advantage of the additional sales opportunities.”
Adam Stroud, CEO of the Paxton Group, says: “Thousands of buildings are in need of IT and security solutions. The IP Access Control Bootcamp will help infrastructure installers to identify and access new profit margins that, with the right training, are theirs for the taking.”
Paxton have broken the bootcamp down into four easy steps for getting started: specially to help them to get ahead in an already competitive market. The IT industry is changing, and there has never been an easier time to get involved.
Installers taking part in the IP Access Control Bootcamp will be given a complete overview of the relationship between electronic access control and IT installations, free training and sales advice, and supported all the way through their first installation by the Paxton team.
Paxton access control products are IP ready and IT friendly. With IP access control, electronic tokens and smartcards replace traditional locks and keys, providing electronic building security that sits on the network, securing access to doors and keeping staff and assets safe. Infrastructure installers can use their present technical knowledge and customer base, scoring incremental sales in access control from their current IT customers.
Paxton are already the security installer’s favourite access control providers, with a reputation for being easy to quote, easy to install and easy to deal with. Paxton plan to support infrastructure installers every step of the way as they diversify into IP access control. Support will continue long after training has finished, with Paxton’s unrivalled technical helpdesk open 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, and a customer-focussed five year product guarantee keeping things simple.
