Productivity to lucy 2013Executive Summary 

Goal: To promote resellers as productivity service providers to customers and prospects.

What: A daily productivity news service including latest innovations, ideas, services, products and info that help users save time, money and space. The media would be a mix of video and text

Why: Currently dealer websites are seen as a combination of predictable brochure home page with a password protected order form.

By converting the webstore to a more benefit driven, more edu-taining experience, featuring latest productivity info in video/text formats, it will attract daily visits to view relevant/current topics and provide a user friendly ‘browse and buy’ process.

How: Partnering with US & UK wholesalers and software houses to provide the technology and power with relevant brand marketers to support the service

When: To test and trial with a select group of resellers in the US and UK from Q2’16
