Welcome everyone, and thank you for your time today. It's a pleasure to be here. I appreciate this opportunity to talk about KODAK’s Channel Momentum, and to tell you a little bit about what Kodak is doing with our channels and what we are doing to help be the best partner and help channels be successful. It’s impossible to go over everything Kodak is doing, so today I’ll be giving you a quick overview of who we are, what we are doing, and share a few examples.
(Review the agenda)
Fierce competition Need to position the Kodak value proposition at the business and strategy levels to align Kodak's and the channel's business strategies. Shift focus from "you must ..." to "grow the pie" Sustain and build channel loyalty through identifying and capturing incremental revenue streams. Sharpen focus of channels on end customer segments and Kodak solutions. Help channels to transition to new technology. Seize the initiative and grow the business. Deploy best practice channel management and consistent go-to-market planning processes, methods and tools. (THIS IS RELEVANT TO KODAK, NOT CHANNELS) Engage channels proactively in a high quality joint go-to-market and sales engagement planning.
