|Evan Marty brings more than 20 years of
experience in custom integration to Ihiji
Ihiji - the leading remote-managed services provider for the technology integration market since 2009 announced today that it has hired industry veteran and HTSA board member Evan Marty as the new Director of Technology Services.
Formerly of VIA International, VIA Home, and Paragon Technology Group (acquired by VIA International), Marty joins the Ihiji client technology team to guide dealers toward an effective RMR business model.
Already busy in the company’s brand new Austin headquarters and in attendance at this week’s Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA) Fall Conference in Chicago, Illinois, Marty brings more than 20 years of experience in the custom integration industry to Ihiji.
As part of the company’s Client Technology Team, Marty will focus on nurturing key Ihiji dealers as they work to develop and expand their recurring monthly revenue streams through Software-as-a-Service offerings provided through Ihiji remote network monitoring and management solutions, including Ihiji invision software and the forthcoming Ihiji ServiceManager, to be introduced at the 2015 CEDIA Expo.
Longstanding advocate of Ihiji
Marty joins Ihiji directly from VIA International, where he co-developed Home Manager, a proprietary web-based application that is an aggregation of tools designed to achieve operational efficiency throughout the organisation. The solution includes Ihiji remote network management solutions, project documentation repositories, and support ticketing, helping VIA to better implement and manage their customer support services business.
Prior to joining VIA International, Marty held the title of Director of Technology Services at Paragon Technology Group, where he was instrumental in bringing Ihiji remote monitoring and management to his organisation as a means to reduce operational costs, improve the client experience, and generate new services revenue.
“I was one of the world’s first five users of the Ihiji appliance and Ihiji invision solution,” says Marty proudly. “I quickly became one of the most vocal evangelists for the brand, and I’m excited to bring that passion and knowledge to the organisation, where I can actively help dealers reduce costly truck rolls and realise increased profits through service contracts.”
On a mission to help technology integrators
Marty remains a board member for the buying group HTSA, where he works with technology integrators to improve their marketing, procurement, and overall business operations. He brings these same concepts and vision to Ihiji integrators, helping them improve efficiencies and strengthen their position in the marketplace.
“We welcome Marty to our team with enthusiasm. As a former successful Ihiji dealer with decades of industry experience, he is uniquely qualified to guide our customers toward a business model that focuses on service contracts as a means of recurring monthly revenue,” says Ihiji Founder Stuart Rench.
