Global Channel Resources (GCR) bets Big on Bridging the Gaps Between Solution Providers and Global Channel Partners
New Delhi, India June 20, 2018:The Internet of Things (IoT) and Could Computing are transforming today’s companies into smart companies. Because of these next-gen solutions, today’s companies are able to monitor and manage their businesses with utmost ease. However, IoT is not the simple off-the-shelf technology, it requires multiple technology integration. This is where the role of the partners is paramount but the challenge for the Indian partners is that they are not able to house skillsets and domain knowledge consistently to support market demand. This is where Global Channel Resource India Pvt. Ltd. (GCR India) comes into the forefront to play a pivotal role by offering SaaS connect IoT and cloud-based service platform: an online marketplace, to help System Integrator (SI), Individual Software Vendors ( ISV) and pre-integrated IoT solutions deploy services worldwide.
GCR’s online platform offers tie-ups with regional and local business operations to reduce the physical demand gap between worldwide ICT channel partners and global buyers. It collaborates with worldwide cloud based/networking solution providers to enable channel partners providing IoT solutions and cloud services. GCR also offers an IoT combination of smart connected hardware and software to serve end-customers via its channel partners. GCR’s unique platform fortifies its Solution Partners to provide a wide range of solutions, services and applications to help accelerate business growth and keep pace with the development of the Internet of Things and Cloud Computing era.
The current channel maintains the flow from product vendors, distributors, system integrators and telecom services providers, before finally handing over to the customer. In the near future, the role of the distributor will be shortened to form a path from product vendors and system integrators straight to a Managed Service Provider/Telecom operator and then to the customer. Dubbed as Channel 3.0 model, Managed service providers will play a notable role in the ecosystem by improving operations and cutting expenses by outsourcing day-to-day management responsibilities and functions. This can include outsourcing human resource activities, production support, and lifecycle management activities, which speed up the process flow and improve efficiency.
Commenting on the Channel 3.0 concept, Tony Tsao, Founder & CEO, GCR said, “It will enable progressive changes in IoT service business models. Solution providers deliver applications from single to integrated solutions, or even massively migrate to collaborative solutions. And the system platform has been transformed from Machine-to-Machine (M2M), focusing on serving individual machines with better quality, and aggregating systems to remove redundant information already transmitted by other machines.”
“New service models will emerge by adapting complex applications driven by open collaboration architectures” added Tsao.
