In principle, the Internet enables clients to discover items without the requirement for resellers (unless you count Google). In reality, the age of full disintermediation has not yet arrived, and perhaps never will. Resellers are still important, especially value-added ones. Therefore, resellers can set up their own business or expand their existing business with reseller benefits.
One of the more important types of middlemen for a software vendor is the value-added reseller. A value-added reseller buys Ant Media Server and then resells it to their customers. Usually, value-added resellers buy from Ant Media at a discount and resell to their customer at full price, pocketing the difference. Typically a reseller will expect between 25-50% discount depending on a range of factors including what services they provide (e.g. localisation, deployment, and support), the price of the product and volumes sold. The discounts are on a sliding scale, with the discount increasing with sales volume.
Value-added resellers can add value for Ant Media and the customer in various ways. They may:
- Have expertise in markets that Ant Media don’t
- Be able to reach markets that Ant Media can’t, due to barriers of language, culture or geography
- Localise the products and marketing materials
- Provide first level support
- Sell Ant Media Server as part of a package including other services, software and/or hardware.
