CLEVELAND, July 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Intwine Connect, LLC today announced a new strategic distribution agreement under which Arrow Electronics will become the exclusive North American distributor of Intwine's broadband backup and internet of things (IoT) products and services.
Under the agreement, Arrow's network of value-added resellers in North America will be authorized to sell all of Intwine Connect's solutions, including the Intwine 4G LTE Router and IoT products with ongoing management services.
Cleveland-based Intwine Connect is a leader in providing broadband backup and internet of things (IoT) products and services for small- and medium-sized businesses. Arrow Electronics, based in Centennial, Colorado, is a global provider of products, services and solutions to industrial and commercial users of electronic components and enterprise computing solutions, and a leading value-added distributor in providing business continuity and IoT solutions to the broader IT-partner ecosystem.
"The Intwine solution aligns well to Arrow's intelligent edge strategy. Intwine's innovative solutions will help Arrow's extensive reseller network cost-effectively address the broadband-backup and IoT needs of their end-customers," said Dan Shea, vice president of Arrow's enterprise computing solutions business. "Arrow is excited to collaborate with Intwine Connect and continue delivering cutting-edge products and services to the resellers we work with."
Intwine's broadband backup is a bundled solution that protects small- and medium-sized businesses from having their business operations disrupted by losing an internet connection. With businesses relying more and more on cloud-based software, online credit card processing, voice over IP phones and online orders, the possibility of internet downtime is not an acceptable risk. Typical downtime for wired internet networks is 1.5 percent of the time, and can cost even small- and medium-sized businesses thousands of dollars per minute.
In addition to preventing internet downtime, Intwine's broadband solution serves as a platform for cost-effectively adding IoT products to small and medium-sized businesses – products that are typically available only to large commercial building owners and operators. These additional IoT products can include asset monitoring, energy management and lighting control.
Dave Martin, founder, president and CEO of Intwine Connect, said, "The small- and medium-sized commercial market wants protection from losing internet service but also needs products that are simple to install and cost-effective. There is currently a huge demand from customers for a broadband backup solution. By combining Intwine's technology solutions with Arrow's vast network of value-added resellers, Intwine is greatly increasing its footprint, providing new revenue streams to resellers, and continuing to stay at the cutting edge of protecting businesses from internet outages."
