DATASCOPE Solution Partners (DSP)
DATASCOPE is committed to building a professional distribution network across the world. This network is known as the DATASCOPE DSP’s – DATASCOPE Solution Partners.
Each partner is very carefully selected by DATASCOPE. They will typically be a smaller team of professional SYSPRO or warehousing experts – often both. DATASCOPE then give a full commitment to each new partner for one year. During this year we complete two or three implementations with the first implementation being run by DATASCOPE with the new DSP staff doing a lot of the day to day work. The second implementation normally sees the DSP taking a lead on the project with DATASCOPE involved heavily in all project meetings and the third project is run by the DSP with some input from DATASCOPE.
All functional specifications are completed in tandem with DATASCOPE resources. We ensure that what is designed for the client is the best solution we can offer.
As is the case in all aspects of the DATASCOPE business each DSP is audited annually by DATASCOPE and a rating system is updated. It is our vision to share these ratings in time with prospective clients.
Joining the DSP program costs a company $10 000 per annum. This cost covers a host of backend support functions between DATASCOPE and the DSP including documentation, training, technical support and sales.. This annual fee also sets a barrier to entry for other DSPs. Due to the complexity of being a DSP we only plan to allocate a limited number of DSP companies in each market. There is a large commitment involved from both sides in any new DSP relationship. The business model however is sound and a DSP will add a valuable revenue stream to their business by becoming a DATASCOPE DSP.
