Ahead of its first major tradeshow presence, Ellipsys Commercial Technology Group was able to achieve a major milestone by officially welcoming a founding vendor partner. The group announced this week that Sonance has signed on and will provide Ellipsys commercial integrators access to its full slate of premier commercial audio solutions.
Still in its infancy, this marks an important first step for Ellipsys as the group continues to build out a compelling offering for both commercial systems integrators and the vendor partners who support them.
“We are thrilled to welcome Sonance as a founding vendor partner,” says Chris Whitley, executive director of Ellipsys. “Adding a renowned brand with a reputation of high quality, exceptional support and elite design aesthetics means a lot as it is. But more importantly, we’re welcoming a partner whose philosophy and approach to doing business perfectly aligns with our own. I look forward to seeing how we can collaborate with our integrators to build a foundation for success.”
Sonance has built a 40-plus-year legacy as a brand that offers sophisticated, high-performing product that blends seamlessly into any application, whether in the home or in a commercial application. In addition to having access to their audio solutions, Ellipsys members can take advantage of the brand’s free technical support, field coaches, design services and more, including the recently launched Sonance Design Gallery interactive tool.
“Sonance is proud to be a founding vendor partner of Ellipsys,” says Michael Bridwell, vice president of commercial sales for Sonance. “Chris Whitley is a known leader in the commercial channel, and his leadership style complements our philosophy of responsible diversification well.”
Product programs represent a portion of the partnership between Sonance and Ellipsys. Down the road, Ellipsys integrators will have the opportunity to attend in-person education and training at Sonance’s San Clemente, California design studio. There, they’ll be able to get hands-on with product and collaborate with interior design partners.Ahead of that though, Ellipsys members will have their first opportunity to get face-to-face with the Sonance commercial team at Commercial Integrator Expo. Taking place September 7-9 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, and co-located with CEDIA Expo, both Sonance and Ellipsys will have a presence on the CIX show floor. Attendees can stop by the Sonance booth (#3501) and Ellipsys booth (#1301) during the show to learn more.
