Under the agreement, the Avnet Embedded division of Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas will distribute mediaVue’s sureVue line of digital signage Player PCs throughout Brazil, while JBTec will manage sales and support.
The partnership allows mediaVue to establish a substantial presence in the Brazilian market by taking advantage of Avnet’s extensive infrastructure and JBTec’s client network while providing them the ability to deliver their customers a consistent, reliable source of industry-proven hardware.
“Partnering with companies of this caliber enables us to expand rapidly and effectively in the Brazilian market while maintaining our high standards of product support,” says David DeGiorgi, president of MediaVue Systems. “We look forward to developing our position in the Brazilian market and to providing superior hardware to digital signage installations across the country.”
Bruno Gianzanti, CEO of JBTec, says, “By incorporating sureVue Player PCs into our networks, we are able to supply our customers with a more reliable and feature-rich SAAS offering. MediaVue’s products and expertise bring added value to our company and make us more competitive in the growing digital signage market in Brazil. Within days of the introduction of mediaVue’s products on our website we began receiving calls from customers asking for sureVues by name and placing orders.”
“Utilizing Avnet’s own logistics and integration capabilities in concert with mediaVue’s cutting-edge hardware will allow us to deliver unparalleled signage solutions and technical support to our customer base,” says Jose Luis Vara, area director of Avnet Embedded Latin America. “Our digital signage program has proven itself within the U.S. market, and by taking advantage of JBTec’s years of signage experience in the region, we will be able to bring the same top-tier service to all of our clients in the region.”
