Pakedge Device & Software, manufacturer of networking equipment for A/V applications, will be embarking on a product tour during the months of July through September.

The tour makes 31 stops across the entire continental United States during the three-month span and provides dealers and integrators with a live and interactive forum for learning about key Pakedge networking solutions.

The BakPak Across America tour focuses on three key Pakedge solutions:

  • Building a remote monitoring and management (RMM) service with the BakPak Cloud Management System
  • Building an enterprise-grade wireless network with the C36 WAP Controller
  • Enterprise networking for small networks: the RE-1 router

The training, ideal for sales, technical and management personnel, will consist of a solution overview, key features and benefits, and a live demonstration of Pakedge products’ capabilities. The three-hour training is available in each city with a choice of morning and afternoon classes.

As part of the national tour attendees will receive information about special Pakedge promotional discounts, t-shirts and other unique giveaways. Nick Phillips, vice president of sales at Pakedge, says the tour provides electronics specialists with a convenient way way to learn about the company’s product line, and how these products can help their businesses.

“[The tour] is great way to learn about important Pakedge solutions in a personalized and interactive forum,” he says. “A live classroom experience gives dealers a far more effective and personalized experience than webinars and training videos do. It’s a great way to ask questions, touch and feel the solutions. [It is] also [helps] to develop personal connections with key Pakedge personnel who can be a resource for them down the road.”
