GREENVILLE, SC - February 23, 2009 - Catalyst Telecom, a sales unit of ScanSource, Inc. {NASDAQ: SCSC}, and value-added distributor of voice, video and data convergence solutions, is helping resellers improve their cash flow and become more efficient through the use of its Remote Programming services for communications solutions. These services were created to help resellers reduce their on-site implementation time, while delivering additional value to their end-user customers.

By using this Remote Programming offering, resellers can rely on Catalyst Telecom to provide up-front implementation procedures before the communications solution is shipped to the end-user. These services include: system design and programming; firmware verification; license key validation; modem, driver and memory installation; burn in and testing. Not only does the utilization of these services mean less on-site time required for the reseller, it also means improved cash flow – up to a two-week estimated gain – as the number of days from installation to invoice is reduced. What’s more, there are significantly fewer DOAs and RMAs because of the advance preparation and testing.

“Our customers are seeing great value in our Remote Programming offer, as we act as an extension of their business to ensure their end-user customer’s solution is ready to go with no errors and no delay,” said John Black, president, Catalyst Telecom. “Most importantly, this is a key way for resellers to improve their cash flow and credit availability, which is so important in today’s economy.”
