#19 Newsmaker: Colleen Browne of ViewSonic

Digital signage and tablets were some of the things Browne had her eye on this year

Colleen Browne, the director of North American sales at ViewSonic, has had a busy and eventful year with the company’s digital signage initiatives and the launch of two new tablets.

Earlier this year, ViewSonic introduced a new digital signage program within its Finch Club partner program. The digital signage program offers channel resources including training, Webinars and sales incentives which are designed to meet the needs of digital signage-focused partners.

In September, ViewSonic continued its push into the digital signage market with the launch of three new products, all of which are delivered thru its network of resellers: Signage Manager Express, ScheduleIt and video wall solutions.

The new offerings are designed to provide partners with a “one-stop solution shop” so they can purchase a total solution from one vendor instead of many, therefore making it easier for the partner and end-user, Browne said.

Most recently, the company expanded its efforts into the mobile device space by announcing it would offer two tablets, ViewPad 7 and ViewPad 10. The tablets are designed to be used by consumers and business users who wish to travel, do work and stay connected.

ViewPad 7 runs on the Android 2.2 OS and features wireless 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth connectivity.

The ViewPad 10 tablet is a dual-boot Wi-Fi device that gives users a choice between Windows 7 Home Premium and Google Android 1.6 OSes.
