#24 Newsmaker of 2009: Colleen Browne of ViewSonic North America

2009 was a year that saw ViewSonic seek a name for itself as more than just a display manufacturer

ViewSonic Corp., which is well known for its visual display products, expanded its solution offerings to also include PC computing products this year.

Colleen Browne, director of North American sales at ViewSonic, said the company diversified its solution portfolio to help achieve net new opportunities and revenue with its partner and end-user communities.

Among the vendor’s PC offerings are its VPC 100 all-in-one desktop PC, new mini small form factor PCs such as its VOT132 PC, and more.

“Entering the PC category this year was very big news,” Browne said. “We’ll extend our offerings in all categories and will also offer notebooks in 2010. Our first launch next year will be ultra-thin products.”

The company also found success this year with its projector products, which feature 3D technology, Browne added.

“We find the demand and desire for 3D technology with projectors in the education market is very promising,” she explained.

ViewSonic also re-launched its Finch Club reseller portal this year, to make it easier for partners to interact with the company and its products.

Browne says the company is also looking at implementing a partner education program into the portal next year. Partners should also look forward to seeing “more aggressive pricing discounts and the expanded availability of our evaluation units,” in 2010, Browne added.
