Components of the Program

1. Integration and Activation

ScanSource will help you select, configure and activate industry-leading mobile devices.  We can also facilitate partnering our customers with various industry Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to best suit your end user's unique requirements. Plus, we pay 100% of available activation commissions, so you do not have to wait 45-60 days.

Our breadth of solutions, both in terms of devices as well as applications is unrivaled. Let us help you arrive at the right combination of mobile devices, software applications, and network services to grow your mobility business.

How does the cellular activation process work?

mode-how-it-works

The first step in cellular activation is to complete the Cellular Opportunity Registration Form. This form registers both you and your end user with the chosen carrier, identifies you as the partner of record, and enlists the support of the Carrier's Field Sales Team in closing the deal for a wireless data and/or voice plan.  Please contact your ScanSource sales representative in order to register an opportunity.

Once the deal is closed, the carrier field rep will help you complete the Co-Sale Activation Form (Sprint Cellular Activation Form or AT&T Cellular Activation Form). This form captures critical information, such as the data and/or voice plan selected, the rate, and your end user's carrier account number. Submit this form, along with your purchase order for the related mobile devices, to your ScanSource sales rep. (Please note the tab "Equipment Information" will be completed by the ScanSource System Integration team at the time of the activation of the specific mobile devices).

Our System Integration team will then power up and activate your mobile devices, register the appropriate serial #'s, Sim#'s and/or IMEI#'s with the carrier, and test for cellular connectivity. Our integration team can also load and configure your application and drop ship the turn-key solution (blind) to your end-user.

And best of all, the full activation commission you earn will be paid up-front, so you don't have to wait 45-60 days.

Please contact your ScanSource sales rep for pricing or with any questions regarding the activation process.
