Athena Security is looking for partners with a strong sense of mission for making the world a safer place.
An ideal partner for us will be the one able to add value during each stage of the business process and end-user support: pre-sales, contract closure, implementation, customer support and resale.
Each Athena’s partner gets a commission, which is a percentage of the revenue from each client, during the whole period of a customer lifetime.
We are looking for a long term partners with similar philosophy and desire to work closely with end-users, helping them to make their facilities safer with our world class security solutions.
Thank you for considering the Athena Value Added Reseller Program!
Value-add resellers (VARs) typically have strong current relationships with physical security system decision makers, and may also represent complementary product lines such as cameras and VMS’s.
We in Athena Security make every effort to protect our brand, and may request additional information to verify potential partner’s background and competency in the physical security domain.
VAR is responsible for the lead generation and the sales process through contract close as enumerated below:
