ASIRT Gold Member Program 2014 was launched amidst much fanfare at ASIRT Techday on 20th Dec. With Brand Guru Suneel Agarwal's seminar on how members can leverage the ASIRT Gold Member logo to stand out amongst the crowd as System Integrators of repute and ethics backed by a keen sense for support and service.
Agarwal spoke to members on the need to differentiate themselves from those who do not make the mark.
"But just being different is not enough", Agarwal stressed, "Conveying that you are different, better, more evolved, competent and provide an unmatched customer experience is the need of the hour as a customer perceives you as no different from the hundreds of others who may not be half as good as you". Agarwal emphasised using ASIRT Gold Member 2014 to create that genuine perception to convey to the customer so that every ASIRT Gold Member is treated as the best, above the rest.
ASIRT Gold Member program (AGM 2014) is not only for streamlining and building fair and profitable System Integrator fraternity, it is for the benefit of end-customers across industry verticals and segments, be they government, enterprises, Small & Medium businesses, small office home office or consumers. ASIRT permits use of ASIRT Gold Member logo to members delivering highest standards of customer experience in terms of service guarantees, infrastructure, expertise and ethical code of conduct as defined by ASIRT. Not abiding by the same may strip them of primary membership of ASIRT too.
ASIRT also publishes fair price chargeable by members along with Service Level Deliverables so that neither SI, nor customers are shortchanged. Like in 2013, even this year ASIRT fellow members can enroll into the program without any fee whatsoever.
BLACKBOX Data Safe, an indigenously developed High Availability & Disaster Recovery systems from Grecells presented ASIRT members with an opportunity in the field of High Availability Data-on-Demand computing that can replace clusters at a fraction of cost. Grecells team not only showed a video of live server failover but also demonstrated live at the event how a Microsoft Windows Server with SQL and applications running on top of BLACKBOX Data Safe continued to run without loss of data even when power plug was pulled out. For the first time ever at ASIRT, members saw a live demonstration of the solution. The company has committed a handsome margin for its partners.
