Winning products and companies to be announced on Friday, September 27 at CEDIA Expo 2013

AUSTIN, TX – September 18, 2013 — ihiji, creator of the award winning invision remote monitoring and management solution, announces today that the Company’s new Client Care Plan is a Finalist in The Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) Manufacturers’ Excellence Awards for Best New Product. CEDIA’s Electronic Lifestyles® Awards recognizes the top projects, products, and individuals in the residential electronic systems industry. The competition honors innovation, creativity, and technical skill, and helps illustrate the many ways technology enhances the home.

A package of templates which provide dealers a complete roadmap for the successful creation and sale of service contracts, the ihiji Client Care Program is a turnkey guide complete with step-by-step instructions, pricing calculators, customer facing collateral, sales training and more. This highly valuable program allows dealers to quickly and effortlessly offer service contracts or annual preventative maintenance programs to their clients.

Essentially a proactive, preventative maintenance agreement, the Client Care Plan results in higher customer satisfaction, more reliable systems and a much sought-after recurring revenue stream. By utilizing the ihiji package, a dealer will have all the necessary components to offer annual maintenance agreements that require very little time or internal resources to be dedicated to the project. This immediately delivers a host of complementary services and a predictable stream of recurring revenue to the dealer’s business.

ihiji’s Client Care Plan is the result of many years of dealer feedback and discussions accompanied by months of one-on-one work with dozens of dealers. While its value is estimated at over $30,000, the kit will be free to all ihiji direct dealers and sold to others for only $5,000. CEDIA members can get additional information by registering to attend CEDIA Education course ESCR094 “Why Client Care Plans (Service Contracts) Are Important for Recurring Revenue” during CEDIA EXPO 2013.

The ihiji Client Care Plan joins 31 other products that were honored as Finalists in the Best New Product category and two products for the Sustainable Lifestyle Product Innovation category. The winners will be announced at a press conference on Friday, September 27 at 9:00 a.m. at CEDIA EXPO 2013. In addition, winners will be recognized at the annual Electronic Lifestyles® Awards Celebration on Saturday, September 28.
