Tyco Retail Solutions Lifts Curtain on GlobalPartnerEdge Channel Program
Tyco says the new program will position channel partners to deliver comprehensive retail solutions for stores, supply chains and omni-channel operations.
NEUHAUSEN, Switzerland – Tyco Retail Solutions, part of Johnson Controls, announced its first globally managed channel partner program with nearly 200 distributors/resellers, value-added resellers, value-added distributors, OEMs and alliances.
The company’s increased focus and investment in the indirect channel is intended to help accelerate delivery of its latest solutions, including new information-based analytics and services available with its Sensormatic Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) portfolio, according to a press release.
The new program, GlobalPartnerEdge, is said to be user friendly and scalable, giving ecosystem partners an ability to expand their business and profitability. The program will also offer solutions that aim to deliver relevant data for retail loss prevention, operations and sales teams to better service their customers.
According to the company, GlobalPartnerEdge is a new and improved approach, providing a comprehensive suite of go-to-market support, tools, financial incentives and training resources. The program is intended to helping channel partners deliver the business benefits of online and connected EAS loss prevention, RFID inventory intelligence and people-counting solutions for retailers.
“We are excited that Tyco Retail Solutions recognizes our ability along with our peers around the world to deliver growth and that they are investing in our success,” says BarÄ±ÅŸ YorgancÄ±, senior manager of product management and pricing, Sensormatic, Guvenlik Hizmetleri Turkey. “Their commitment via GlobalPartnerEdge to support our respective strategies will help maximize our ability to serve retailers within our relevant markets.

The press release cites a new study from Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), which found that 63% of channel respondents expressed hopefulness that indirect channels will fare generally well in the years ahead. One development, according to Tyco, that will help ensure a more positive future for indirect channels will be the existence of vendors that are truly committed to their channel partnerships.
