What does subscribing to TAGARNO mean? What is in it for you as a distributor? When will this be?
A subscription in TAGARNO terms means entering a synergy between our distributors (you), the customer and TAGARNO.
It means that the customer will have a choice between owning and borrowing a microscope from TAGARNO. In addition, training, data access and app subscription will be an important part of the subscription.
Having a TAGARNO subscription also means a brand new and exiting new business opportunity for you as a TAGARNO distributor. And it means a competitive advantage for all of us, since this is a convenience the microscope industry and thus customers haven´t yet seen.
See the video below, where Betina explains the idea behind the concept and why this means a new business opportunity for you as our distributor:
Depending on the customers needs and wishes when it comes to microscope models and ownership versus borrowing, the new concept holds it all.
By choosing between a tailored variety of subscription packages and topping the subscription up with apps and accessories, the customer can easily find a shoe that fits.
Your role as a TAGARNO distributor will be somewhat the same as it always has been. The main difference is that you now will get an even closer partnership with us and the customer. A subscription in it´s nature involves an ongoing dialogue and closeness with the customer. In a TAGARNO perception this means structured customer care and training to ensure the continuing satisfaction of the customer.
In accordance with all national national conditions and distributor wishes, we will make a plan for making the official roll out in each market.
As a starting point, we wish to make a prelaunch, subscribing any intested customer at a mailing list for ongoing flow of further information starting June 1, 2021. Continuing with the official launch in an intro period from and including September 2021.
DISTRIBUTORWhat will the payments period be?
The subscription will be billed either twice or once a year with the customer. This means that you will also get your cut accordingly year after year.
As a part of the subscription loyalty offer to current customers, a three month flexible subscription period will be a possibility. This means that if a current customer has the need of an extra microscope for a three month period, this will now be possible for you to offer to them.
In this concept, we don´t distinguish between industries. This means that customers from all industries are able to get a TAGARNO on subscription.
Being a TAGARNO distributor also means having the crucial initial and ongoing contact with the customer. This will only be reinforced, when the customer is a subscription customer, since the ongoing dialogue will now be secured and sealed.
