LAS VEGAS -- SmartConnect, a leading provider of video-centric business intelligence solutions, today announced the launch of its Partner Reseller Program. SmartConnect's Partner Reseller Program offers a comprehensive package of marketing and training services not typically offered by reseller programs. This makes certain partner resellers, including CCTV integrators and point-of-sale (POS) specialists, provide restaurant and casino customers with all-inclusive offerings.

With this program, SmartConnect is building partnerships with reputable resellers who wish to be in the forefront of digital video and POS technology solutions. SmartConnect partner resellers are able to help quick service and casual dining restaurants, CC stores and retail establishments prevent internal theft and fraud; detect internal trouble spots, such as cash register manipulation and improper use of coupons or discounts; run operations more efficiently; and create a proactive employee training tool.

"SmartConnect and our partner resellers are working together to provide the most innovative and all-inclusive business intelligence tool for customers," says Bob Moore, director of business development, SmartConnect. "By working with top CCTV integrators and POS specialists, we ensure that customers are receiving not just a quality product but a complete solution. This enables operators to get new business intelligence systems up and running in less time and with less effort."

"Through SmartConnect's reseller program we extend our product line to include a value-added system," says Dan Goss, president of Digital South. "SmartConnect's video-centric business intelligence system opens up a whole new market avenue for Digital South."

Services and features that are offered with SmartConnect's Partner Reseller Program include co-op advertising, revenue sharing, special sales and technical training, and an internal Web site strictly for certified partner resellers. The Web site provides information to keep partner resellers informed of the latest technology updates from SmartConnect and related industries. A feature on the site includes an automated quoting tool, Quick Configure. The program configures important equipment, software, pricing and cut sheets for projects with answers from several simple questions, which makes obtaining pricing quotes for projects easy and efficient.

SmartConnect's systems synchronize digital video surveillance with POS data systems, making digital video surveillance useful on multiple levels of business operations. Operators can search and review video by transactions and exceptions. The system detects potential internal trouble spots such as cash register manipulation, improper use of coupons or discounts, and illicit employee activities to create customized reports. This data, combined with streaming surveillance video, both real-time and stored, is accessible via any PC or wireless handheld device with a simple Web browser.
