Vector Security Launches ‘The Point’ Dealer Portal
Website Centralizes Sales and Support Tools for Vector Security Authorized Dealers
PITTSBURGH, September 14, 2016 – Vector Security, the leading provider of intelligent security and home automation solutions tailored to the needs of its customers, launches “The Point,” an online portal that is the central resource for Authorized Dealer sales and support tools.
By logging into “The Point,” Vector Security Authorized Dealers can access everything they need to take them from selling, to onboarding and contracting, to customer account management.
Perhaps the biggest benefit to dealers, according to John Madden, Vice President of Vector Security’s Authorized Dealer Division, is the ability to complete e-contracts. Dealers are able to populate customer information, perform credit checks, choose products and services, activate mobile solutions, set up recurring payments, and obtain the customer’s electronic signature…all within a PCI-compliant, secure environment so customer information is well-protected.
“Our objective in creating ‘The Point’ was to streamline the sales process for our dealers,” John said. “We believe that a more efficient system will make selling easier and help dealers meet their sales goals.”
In addition to e-contracting, “The Point” is also the central resource for sales presentations and product sheets; funding information, sales tier and leaderboard status; links to frequently-accessed third-party websites; and customer account information.
“There are many positives gained from using ‘The Point,’ both on the sales side as well as the administrative side,” said Brian Van Ness, President and CEO of Savannah, Ga.-based GOL Security. “The e-contracting feature allows us to cut down on paperwork, reduce errors and submit a sale as soon as it is made.”
He cited an example where he closed a sale, submitted it electronically via “The Point” and had the system installed by an onsite technician and placed in service immediately. “Without ‘The Point,’ we would have had to take the paperwork back to the office and get it input and processed before installation and activation could take place,” Brian explained.
The Vector Security Authorized Dealer Program allows independent alarm companies to share the company’s unique corporate history, strong brand presence and financial stability to co-market services together. Authorized dealers benefit from personalized technical and marketing support, as well as one of the most lucrative, fastest funding compensation plans in the industry.
