DBL Distributing, Scottsdale, Ariz., for a partnership with Vonage to deliver a full suite of Vonage-enabled devices. DBL said the agreement helps level the playing field among independent consumer electronics dealers by delivering opportunities typically associated with national “big box” retailers.
As part of the deal, DBL will market various Vonage-enabled Internet telephony products and accessories which allow users to connect and make calls through a high-speed Internet connection. DBL will also provide a “dealer quick-start marketing kit” that combines items a retailer needs to start marketing Vonage-enabled products, including signage, training materials and point-of-sale displays. DBL customers who participate in the program earn an activation commission for each Vonage device sold resulting in a Vonage account activation. In order to participate, dealers must become a Vonage/DBL authorized dealer.
“Vonage is a great service, offering a compelling combination of features and industry-leading price points” says Henry Chiarelli, chief merchandising officer of DBL Distributing, Inc. “As a leading distributor of consumer electronics among independent retailers, we’re always looking for services that add profit potential and increase foot traffic to a dealer’s business. We believe Vonage and VoIP-related products are two major components of consumer demand now and long-term.”
