GREENVILLE, SC - August 11, 2009 - ScanSource POS & Barcoding, a leading international value-added distributor of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) and point-of-sale (POS) solutions and services and sales unit of ScanSource, Inc., (NASDAQ: SCSC), has created a comprehensive program, Government Source, designed to educate and assist resellers with business opportunities in the public sector, including healthcare, education and federal, state and local government.

Through the Government Source program, ScanSource resellers have access to education and training programs to help them become more learned on the many rules related to selling into the public sector, the players in these key markets, as well as avenues for finding and competing for the available opportunities. What’s more, ScanSource has created a lead-generation program whereby leads will be submitted to reseller customers and formally tracked.

ScanSource has also developed a comprehensive web site replete with information on the public sector, background on the Stimulus Act – hundreds of billions of which could be available to resellers – as well as information on available marketing opportunities. In addition, ScanSource will be announcing the schedule for its upcoming Government Source Road Shows, where ScanSource Business Development representatives will be visiting resellers to provide assistance on developing their public sector strategies and plans.

“We believe that there is abundant opportunity in the public sector and many resellers don’t have the time or bandwidth to learn all of the rules, research the opportunities, gain knowledge of the players and participate in the bid process,” said Jeff Yelton, president, ScanSource POS & Barcoding. “That’s why we created this program – to make the learning curve and the bid process easier and to help them cut through all of the red tape. There is so much opportunity out there – they just need to find it.”
