Jabra Introduces New Jabra Vendor Services Group Program

July 25, 2014

Jabra, a brand of GN Netcom and a subsidiary of GN Store Nord A/S (GN), has recently introduced Jabra (News - Alert) Vendor Services Group Program to its North American customers and partners, enabling them to cut down on large up-front capital expenses and move into a monthly subscription based payment model.

This new Jabra VSG Program enables end users to gain from new communications and collaboration technology, without spending as much in up-front capital expenses, by entering into a simple monthly subscription agreement.

The new program is advantageous to Jabra's channel partners, as Jabra funds them in matter of 48 hours. Also, Jabra VSG takes care of all logistics, support and financing for the duration of the subscription agreement. Once the customers reach the subscription term, they have an option to upgrade to newer solutions, return the equipment or keep what they have under a new agreement.

"Cash flow is like oxygen to the SMB market," Urban Gillis Sales VP at Jabra's said. "So anything we can do to help stay fast and competitive in this business environment is good for everybody. But with enterprise class CIO's coming under more pressure to quantify the benefits of their voice deployments -- which is a trend we're definitely seeing -- we're finding that even the big players want the flexibility that comes with a scalable approach like our VSG program."

By cutting down the large up-front capital expenses, IT departments, from small businesses to Fortune 500 clients, can easily eliminate a major deployment hindrance and accelerate the success of communication and collaboration deployments.

"With this new program from Jabra, our customers can now replace their traditional phone systems with a unified communications solution without the typical large upfront investment," Apex (News - Alert) Digital's VP of Technology, Eric Inch, said.

Jabra employs approximately 925 people worldwide, and in 2013 produced annual revenue which amounted to DKK 2,612 million.
