American collaboration technology company Mersive has recently awarded the distribution of its products into the South African market to Wild & Marr.
Solstice, which is Mersive’s flagship collaboration product will hit South African shores soon.
Cyril Mattar, Regional Sales Manager – MEA for Mersive answered two key questions:
- Why Mersive partnered with Wild and Marr?
First and foremost, your [Wild & Marr] reputation precedes you. When searching for a distribution partner in SA, we met and discussed our vision with multiple System Integrators and the name Wild & Marr came across multiple times. As a relatively small company we prefer to partner with a company that understands the intricacies of our industry and from our first meeting with Anton and his team, it was obvious that we found the perfect match.
- What the product can offer in the market?
Mersive products are like nothing the Audio-Visual industry has ever seen before. By blending Software and Hardware into an in-house manufactured device, Mersive can deliver on features that none of our competitors can achieve. Our Solstice platform allows us to remain nimble and add features as we progress without any change to the hardware; this drastic approach is like what has happened in the mobile world when Smart Phones were introduced.
The Solstice platform [product] is Easy to manage, has Enterprise-grade Security and is built on a Software-Based Architecture. All this combined with our value-add capabilities delivered via regular software updates makes Solstice one of the best Wireless Presentation System for any market.
Anton van Wyk, Technical Director for Wild & Marr who played a key role in winning the distribution deal commented, “In this ever-changing AV environment where everything is migrating onto the existing enterprise network, we have to ensure that security-conscious environments, especially financial institutes, stay secure. Mersive was the only wireless collaboration device that passed the test performed by Tenable in May this year as reported by www.securityeeek.com”
“An old African proverb says…” if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together”. Workplace collaboration is an extension of the old-school teamwork ethic taken to a higher level. There is no doubt that advances in technology have positively impacted workplace collaboration. And if you are going to adopt collaboration technology then certainly adopt the most powerful and interactive available. We at Wild & Marr are extremely proud to represent Mersive Technologies and welcome their platform to our solutions for room technologies.” concluded Gary Furman, Managing Director for Wild & Marr.
