Dicker Data is expanding its AV portfolio, having agreed a new partnership with Five Faces, an enterprise cloud-based platform that enables the central control of smart devices including digital and interactive displays.
Dicker Data can now offer central control of devices that deliver end-to-end customer experience management.
Dicker Data head of AV Andrew Upshon says: “I’m pleased to be expanding our AV portfolio to include enterprise and SME content curation vendor, Five Faces. We see consistently strong demand for digital signage and professional AV solutions across the healthcare, retail, corporate and FMCG industries. Five Faces has a strong reputation in these segments and represents a natural fit for our reseller partners. By partnering closely with Five Faces, we will be helping our reseller partners to capture the whole digital display opportunity beyond just hardware.”
With over 10 years of proven reliability, Five Faces is used by some of Australia’s largest companies in the healthcare, corporate, retail, FMCG, hospitality and education industries. Furthermore, the company recently launched its SME offering, Entertain, which is low cost, low touch and autonomous.
Five Faces founder and chief executive Yazz Krishna says he was looking for a passionate distributor with an interest in helping the channel and customers to learn, navigate and implement these solutions, and to partner with them to educate the market.
“It’s clear Dicker Data have the right, customer-centric approach for our solution offering with a lot of complementary solutions to pair with it.”
He adds: “Dicker Data is a unique provider in that they don’t just sell ICT equipment; they truly work as a trusted advisor to their resellers and end customers, and with over 40 years in the game, they are very good at what they do and have proven their value to customers in driving technological change.”
The announcement is the latest in a series of good news stories for Dicker Data in the professional AV and digital signage markets. The company recently announced the appoint of Andrew Upshon as head of AV and Les Boros as AV business development manager boasting, between them, over 50 years of experience in the AV channel.
Andrew adds: “Any one of our partners who are involved in the fit-out of office spaces, retail environments or healthcare facilities should be having a conversation with their end-user about managing the digital content displayed in those environments.”
