Daisy Wholesale is urging its resellers to use the London Olympics 2012 as an opportunity to cross-sell mobile, smartphone and tablet products to customers to help their staff work from home during the Olympics.
But it also warned resellers to be prepared to avoid disruptions to installation work for unified comms solutions.
Daisy Wholesale operations director Paul Richens said: ‘VPNs, mobile and smartphones, as well as tablets, will be even more important to businesses during this period and could be a great opportunity for resellers to break into new product areas when workforces see the benefits of having such equipment.‘
Daisy Wholesale has launched a dedicated area on its website in partnership with Olympic communications partner BT to help resellers prepare for any possible disruptions caused by the Olympics.
The wholesaler is warning unified comms resellers that Transport for London (TfL) restrictions on digging up roads or pavements over the entire Olympic Route Network, which are already in place, could delay installation work.
Richens said: ‘Resellers need to be aware of the restrictions in order to manage their customer expectations. Failure to plan ahead now could mean a delay in installations and some very unhappy customers on the reseller’s books.
‘We want to minimise the risk of this happening and so have put together comprehensive details of how this may affect both the reseller’s business as well as impacting on their end customer’s business.’
The Daisy Wholesale website’s Olympics 2012 page offers key information on order timelines, the dates from which routes which will be closed off, travel hotspots to avoid and other issues resellers need to consider to avoid the Olympics 2012 disrupting business.
