Managed Retail Solutions allows resellers the opportunity to:

  • Own and provide the foundation for your customer’s retail IT – a secured, managed, PCI compliant network
  • Add retail-focused solutions which are vetted and approved by ScanSource
  • Offer new products and technologies into the retail vertical
  • Manage multiple products, services, and locations from our single dashboard
  • Provide Remote Managed Services, and build a recurring revenue stream
  • Reduce or eliminate store downtime
  • Explore new technologies and vetted solutions being added to the offering: POS tablet/fixed system (Windows OS), digital phone system, security camera and digital recording, customer location analytics, etc. 

Our finance partner, GreatAmerica, can help you provide Managed Retail Solutions as-a-Service. They take your quote—and your hardware, services, software, and managed services—then pay hardware and out-of-pocket expenses upfront, and bill your customer for the solution. Monthly invoice goes to the end user… recurring revenue to you! It all starts with a secured, managed network.
