The scholarship addresses the need for a high-quality workforce, while the master class empowers VARs and service providers selling signage
STERLING, Va., January 11, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Mvix, a leading provider of content-rich digital signage software and solutions, announced new educational initiatives to support greater SaaS adoption for digital signage platforms across partner and public channels.
The first steps of this initiative include a series of online master classes focused on selling licensed digital signage software as a service (SaaS), as well as a scholarship opportunity for college students. Both the class and the scholarship will empower partners and students to establish an effective foothold in the growing digital signage industry.
It is our responsibility to nurture the growth of our industry in order to bring in more talent and market interest. We're excited to be able to offer this master class to empower our partner to be better positioned for success.

Don’t Bust Your SaaS
The master class, “Don’t Bust Your SaaS!” will be delivered via webinar on Wednesday, Jan. 17, at 2 p.m. EST. It will empower IT service providers that want to maximize their profit margins by selling licensed digital signage software as a service, i.e., bundle it with core services such as security-as-a-service, remote monitoring and management of the display network, etc.
In the master class, attendees can expect to :
- see a demo of how to sell licensed digital signage SaaS as a value proposition
- see an analysis of a sample digital signage sale and review the profit margins
- get a step-by-step guide on how to negotiate similar sales situations
The IT services market opportunity is defined by four dynamic and interconnected forces: digital business, cloud first, intelligent automation and business solutions. These will have the most impact in defining the evolving opportunity for providers.
Digital signage services encompass these four items. In the webinar, Mvix will present a detailed master plan to help service providers examine their own strategies and chart their response to SMB's need for visual communication solutions.
“It is our responsibility to nurture the growth of our industry in order to bring in more talent and market interest,” said Mike Kilian, senior director of business development at Mvix. "We're excited to be able to offer this master class and empower our partner to be better positioned for success."
