Toronto, Ontario, April 25, 2005 BenQ Canada has recently set a new industry standard by expanding its G.E.M. (government, educational, medical) program to include religious institutions, with discounts of up to 8%. The first of its kind in Canada to include religious institutions, the new G.E.M.R. plan’s discounted rates are up to four times higher than the industry standard on some of BenQ’s state-of-the-art, top-quality products to Canadian government, medical, educational, and now religious institutions.
“BenQ’s Value Added Resellers provide support for a number of services and installations that often require the manufacturer’s help,” said Jimmy Davlouros, Executive Vice President for BenQ North America. “The G.E.M.R. program is designed to assist these resellers by using their services and expertise to position BenQ as the brand of choice.”
The G.E.M.R. program currently offers an 8 percent discount on BenQ’s range of projectors, which provides a clear, crisp picture that will not fade over time, and a 5 percent discount on the entire selection of BenQ’s LCD monitors, which deliver exceptional clarity and sharp, high-quality picture.
“We are proud to offer our Authorized Resellers the opportunity to provide their G.E.M.R. clientele a valued business proposition—one that is unprecedented in this industry,” added Davlouros. “We have absolutely raised the bar here. The industry standard on discount programs is currently 2 to 3 percent.”
