Industry Retail Group joins Envysion program

Envysion, the leading Managed Video as a Service (MVaaS) provider, today announced it has already signed its second partner in less than a week to its newly announced Envysion Partner Program. The program delivers a new recurring revenue stream with a differentiated web-based managed video service to industry partners looking to expand their offerings and grow their business. Envysion Video is rapidly becoming a preferred technology for Systems Integrators, Security Channel providers, Broadband Service providers and Point of Sale providers who seek to enhance their portfolio of services. By adding Envysion Video to their offerings, Envysion Partners can provide their customers with remote access to on-site video that is tied to business applications, such as Point of Sale (POS) systems and security access.

The Envysion Partner Program features flexible requirements with benefits designed to complement any business model. Partners can participate in the program in any one of four categories, including Integrated Technology Partner, Referral Partner, Sales Partner and Resale Partner. The programs range from simple referral arrangements to full resale relationships. Each program delivers a complete, differentiated solution, unmatched by the competition. Partners benefit from an incremental revenue stream as well as the addition of an innovative service in their portfolio.

"The Envysion Partner Program provides a web-based video management offering that will bring enhanced business benefits to our channel partners, as well as to their consumers," said Matt Steinfort, president and CEO of Envysion. "We are very pleased to include IRG among our premier partners in this new and important program."

Industry Retail Group (IRG), provides retailers and other multi-site organizations with a suite of industry-specific applications and services that leverage broadband networks, to give a competitive advantage while keeping costs in check.

Through the managed integration of leading edge technology components such as DSL, Cable, EVDO, and traditional access, IRG is able to provide the most comprehensive network coverage and bandwidth availability to meet each client's unique business requirements.

"Envysion's MVaaS solution allows us to broaden our overall customer solution in the retail environment," said Mike Luzio, CEO of IRG. "Our retail clients benefit from a scalable and intelligent broadband video solution for loss prevention that does not burden the IT network."

Industry Retail Group began implementing Envysion's MVaaS with several key clients earlier in 2008. Retailers have responded positively as the solution has resulted in immediate, verifiable savings for their companies.

"Strategic partnerships play a critical role in Envysion's overall business strategy for delivering and implementing MVaaS technology," added Steinfort. "The Envysion Partner Program gives both Envysion and its partners an excellent opportunity to build an incremental revenue stream and ensure that businesses of all sizes have access to the power of Envysion Video. The Program will significantly increase Envysion's market penetration by authorizing our channel partners to resell the most comprehensive MVaaS technology on the market."
