CareConnect Launches Channel Partner Program

CHANNEL PARTNERS CareConnect by ESCO Technologies (Booth #1526 at the Fall 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo) this week officially launched its channel partner program.

CareConnects telecom services target senior living communities across the country. To that end, the company is offering agents what it described as high, uncapped commissions paid up-front on long-term contracts, typically lasting 10 years. 

Our niche senior living communities is not one to which many channel partners have tried to sell, so there is a huge, untapped market just waiting to be approached,” said Gary Rolfsen, vice president of sales and channel development at ESCO Technologies. Whats more, the average contract is quite large. Since senior living communities typically have several hundred residents, all of whom want telephone and other services we offer like TV and Internet, the contracts we sign are often larger than those that channel partners are used to securing.”

Whats more, the senior living segment is expected to boom over the next 20 years as more Americans age, CareConnect said.

What should be equally appealing to channel partners is how easy it is to find interested clients in this niche,” said Chuck Reid, CareConnects marketing director. Every one of these 50,000 or so communities needs up-to-date telecommunications systems to effectively serve their staff and residents.”

CareConnect said it expects a flood of interested partners so it is talking about the new program in two settings first, on Wed., Aug. 24, from 4:15-5:30 p.m., in Room W476 at McCormick Place; and during expo hall hours at CareConnects booth. Rolfsen said hes sure agents will see the tremendous opportunity in partnering with CareConnect. If interest is too strong though, we might have to limit the number of partners to first come, first served.”
