Pleasanton, California – May 9, 2011 – Visioneer, Inc., a leader in intelligent document imaging solutions, today announced the new Elite VAR Program, the highest tier of the 20/20 Perfect Vision Program for qualified resellers of Visioneer and Xerox imaging solutions. Visioneer also announced the appointment of Bob Scaglia to Senior Vice President of Sales for North America and Jim Tamo to Vice President of Distribution Sales.

The new Elite VAR Program features instant rebates in addition to volume incentive rebates, marketing development activities, field sales and escalated technical support, and access to helpdesk certification and marketing tools.

“Visioneer’s program provides us with the valuable tools to create sales and support programs that support our need for real-time product information and joint customer interaction,” said John Schertell, Vice President of Partner Management at Pomeroy. “We have an excellent partnership with Visioneer and they were there with us when it was time to deploy 4,500 units over a very limited time frame in a recent customer deployment. And Visioneer was not the least bit challenged by our customer’s unique integration requirements. We at Pomeroy are proud to be in the Visioneer PerfectVision Program and look forward to more great wins together.”

Visioneer, a Xerox licensing partner, is proud to offer both its Visioneer-branded and Xerox-branded products under a single reseller partners program. The 20/20 Perfect Vision program optimizes VAR margins and sales opportunities through rebates, sales and engineering support and marketing tools.

“We have made a significant commitment to extending our document imaging product lines, while speeding up the flow of critical information to the reseller, which in turn, is going to help our VARs create meaningful sales and support programs to increase profitability and overall sales volume,” said Jim Tamo, Vice President of Distribution Sales at Visioneer.
