Why Mersive?

Q2_2020_New_Partners_Page_01

Mersive’s Solstice suite of products is both software and network based, so it gives our integrator partners a chance to expand their market focus from AV into the IT realm – if they haven’t already done so. Our integrator partners love our ‘AV inside the room – IT outside the room’ approach because it allows them to speak to the ‘whole’ customer and leverage the convergence of AV and IT.

Q2_2020_New_Partners_Page_02

Software based products are also less expensive than hardware based products and do a better job of tracking market requirements. Mersive regularly responds to customer’s feature requests with new additions to the product within 3-6 months. Critical requirements are often completed and in market in less than 3-4 week.

Solstice’s cloud presence provides integrator partners an opportunity for subscription based product sales and a source of contracted recurring revenue – and an option to give their customers an OPEX budget option.

Q2_2020_New_Partners_Page_04

Despite its success, Solstice is still vastly under distributed compared to Barco, Crestron and even Kramer – making our platform a unique offering and one that can provide a competitive advantage against other resellers in the market. Solstice is second only to Barco in market share and tied with Crestron depending on geo and vertical – despite having a sales force 1/10 the size of our bigger competitors.

Q2_2020_New_Partners_Page_05

Solstice as a collaboration platform – in addition to content sharing, Solstice also offers digital signage, highlighting/annotation tools, room calendar integration, room analytics, active learning and video conference integration. One platform – any room or meeting space.

Q2_2020_New_Partners_Page_06

Solstice Open Control API – Another way that Mersive supports their resellers is our API toolkit which allows Solstice to be integrated with any other technology – driving additional value add and customer loyalty.

“In our new headquarters, we wanted to offer our co-workers access to the very latest technology, to maximize collaboration and to make information sharing fast and simple. Plus, being in the financial industry, data security and centralized management are paramount. We sought the right wireless solution to create a clean, easy and inclusive working environment. Our vision was that anyone in a meeting could securely share content from any device quickly and easily including smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other devices. Mersive Solstice Pods were the perfect solution as they allow for a number of devices to be connected to one screen without any risk of data breach or viruses. It enables a truly interactive meeting whereby all participants can contribute content to the display as part of the discussion”.
