Ihiji Invision Inducted Into 2017 CEDIA Product Hall Of Fame

Ihiji Invision Remote Systems Management platform for Home Technology Professionals was inducted into the 2017 CEDIA Product Hall of Fame and recognized for its transformative impact on the AV industry

Austin, TX  (September 11, 2017) Ihiji Invision, the leading Remote Systems Management (RSM) solution for technology integrators, was inducted into the CEDIA Product Hall Of Fame during the CEDIA tradeshow in San Diego, CA last week. The CEDIA Product Hall of Fame inductees are selected by a panel of home technology professionals and distinguished as being transformative to the AV industry. Ihiji pioneered the remote monitoring category and continues to lead the industry eight years later.

When introduced to the market in 2009, Ihiji Invision was the first remote monitoring product designed specifically for home technology professionals. At the time, the home network was beginning to emerge as the foundation of the connected home but its potential had not yet been harnessed—or effectively secured. As former integrators that specialized in networking, the Ihiji team understood both the impact and exponential growth potential connected devices and the network that supports those devices would soon represent. The CEDIA Product Hall Of Fame Award illustrates the transformative nature of Ihiji Invision and the continued evolution of remote networking and the remote systems management category.

“As proud pioneers of the remote systems management category for the CEDIA channel and as some of the original architects of the RMR and RSM business model for CEDIA home technology professionals, we’re incredibly honored and humbled to be recognized with a CEDIA Hall of Fame Award,” says Stuart Rench, CEO of Ihiji. “Over the years, our team has committed an enormous amount of time, energy, and resource to continuously evolve the remote monitoring category, just as we have with the introduction of Ihiji ProVue, which debuted during CEDIA 2017. We are grateful for the recognition and thankful for the ongoing support of the industry and our dealers.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CEDIA Booth #3329

Ihiji Announces Lifetime Licensing, Giving Dealers Option To Move Away From Monthly Subscription Charges

Lifetime licenses for Ihiji service can now be purchased with Ihiji Remote Systems Management appliances, eliminating the requirement for a monthly or annual Ihiji subscription 

Austin, TX & San Diego, CA (September 5, 2017) – Ihiji, the leading provider of Remote Systems Management (RSM) solutions for technology integrators since 2009, announces “freemium” service and the addition of no-monthly-fee, lifetime pricing options. The new pricing allows a dealer to reap the benefits of RSM without being tied to customer renewals or monthly charges. The addition of the new pricing option is one of many new announcements from the long-time provider of RSM solutions. Interested dealers can learn more about Ihiji’s new pricing in booth #3329 during CEDIA, being held in San Diego, September 5-9, 2017.

The new pricing option is available starting at the CEDIA show and has attractive conversion options for dealers who wish to convert existing monthly-subscription sites to lifetime licenses. The new pricing is the result of dealer feedback as a way to simplify the deployment of RSM solutions and the business models around them.

“The Remote Systems Management category continues to evolve and the new Ihiji pricing model gives dealers more flexibility in how they chose to adopt a business model around these solutions and services,” states Michael Maniscalco, Co-Founder and VP of Product at Ihiji. “We are very excited about the future with the addition of the new lifetime pricing alongside the launch of Ihiji ProVue.”

Ihiji Wraps Up The Race To Revenue, Margaritas, and Retirement with Two Prizes To Mexico and Celebrates with Release of New Recurring Revenue Resources

Ihiji’s Race To RMR wraps up its year-long competition. Two dealers are headed to Mexico to celebrate their RMR success, and Ihiji is providing new RMR resources to help others follow in their footsteps

Austin, TX & San Diego, CA (August 3, 2017) – Ihiji, the leading provider of Remote Systems Management (RSM) solutions for technology integrators since 2009, is presenting the grand prize to the winners of the Race to Revenue, Margaritas, and Retirement (Race to RMR) at CEDIA, being held in San Diego, September 5-9, 2017. To celebrate the success of the competition and encourage other dealers to follow suit, Ihiji is also providing new Recurring Monthly Revenue (RMR) resources.

Ihiji is sending two dealers to Mexico for their performance in the Race to RMR, sponsored by Ihiji. The contest was designed to inspire home technology professionals to develop a sustainable, rewarding, service-based business model. The top performing dealers—two dealers who generated the most RMR over the course of the contest— have been awarded an all-expenses paid vacation to Mexico.

During the contest, which ran from CEDIA 2016 to CEDIA 2017, Ihiji provided the necessary tools for dealers to manage customer service contracts and collect recurring revenue. Using Ihiji’s ServiceManager, participating dealers were able to manage service plans, invoicing and billing to generate and build their recurring revenue base. Ihiji offered dealers a free subscription to entry-level ServiceManager plans and also sponsored monthly prizes for integrators who participated in the contest.

Dealers who weren’t able to participate in the Race to RMR can still take advantage of the Ihiji RMR resources, a free ServiceManager trial, and access case studies to learn where others found success.

Ihiji Provides Even More RMR Resources
Ihiji has a long-time commitment to the industry’s success with RMR. As a dealer recently stated, “[Ihiji] wrote the book on RMR.” Throughout the year, Ihiji has expanded RMR resources for dealers, including new features, reports, collateral and case studies. Ihiji even developed software solutions to help dealers on the operations side of their service business.

Selling and marketing service plans are only half of the battle; Ihiji’s new Remote Systems Management platform, ProVue, was designed to help dealers operationalize and deliver the service, including securely billing end-users on a monthly basis through an improved custom e-commerce site. Furthermore, Ihiji has aligned ProVue pricing with a dealer’s RMR success, meaning dealers only pay for monthly service when they are generating RMR from their customers.

As Kevin Hourihan of Cyber Technologies states, “If dealers are still running around back and forth to clients’ houses to reboot the network or answering the phone at all hours of the night without getting paid for it—that’s not the way to run a business. I can definitely thank Ihiji for taking us to another level.”

To learn more about the Ihiji RMR resources or award-winning software solutions, visit Ihiji at CEDIA in booth #3329, www.ihiji.com, and follow @ihiji on Twitter and Facebook.

Ihiji Moves to A Single SKU Remote Systems Management Appliance Which Allows for Monitoring Of Gigabit Internet Speeds

CEDIA Booth #3329

Ihiji Moves to A Single SKU Remote Systems Management Appliance Which Allows for Monitoring Of Gigabit Internet Speeds

With Internet Speeds regularly pushing 150Mbps, the Ihiji APP-750 avoids limitations of entry-level monitoring appliances with near Gigabit speed testing capabilities

Austin, TX & San Diego, CA (August 3, 2017) – Ihiji, the leading provider of Remote Systems Management (RSM) solutions for technology integrators since 2009, is showcasing the Ihiji APP-750 Remote Systems Management appliance in booth #3329 during CEDIA, being held in San Diego, September 5-9, 2017. The new APP-750 was announced at Integrated Systems Europe 2017 and has since proven to have the resources needed to replace both the APP-500 and APP-2100 Ihiji appliances.

The Ihiji APP-750 features an upgraded chipset for improved performance and a network bus that allows it to more accurately test modern internet speeds which are routinely pushing 150Mbps to nearly 1Gbps. The appliance has protected distribution and is available direct to dealers who are free to set their own retail pricing.

Priced to fit within any budget and engineered to accommodate current technology demands, the APP-750 offers a robust solution in a market that is increasingly demanding high-performance, flexible, Remote Systems Management (RSM) solutions. The APP-750 pairs with either of the Ihiji Invision or new ProVue licensing plans, including the Invision Lite service level, which provides for remote management with no additional per-site monthly fees.

“The APP-750 has proven to have the horsepower necessary to replace both existing Ihiji appliances with a single SKU which removes the confusion associated with choosing the correct appliance based on speed testing or device counts at each customer site. That has simplified sales specification and brings down the average cost of remote monitoring,” said Michael Maniscalco, Co-Founder and VP of Product at Ihiji. “With the new APP-750 hardware, our product team focused on performance, build quality, reliability and professional features to complement our powerful cloud-based solution.”

CEDIA Booth #3329

Ihiji ProVue: A Re-Invisioned Remote Monitoring and Support Application For Technology Professionals

Ihiji ProVue combines the power and features of Ihiji Invision and Ihiji Service Manager into one new Remote Systems Management platform focused on improved setup, usability and mobile experience for dealers, technicians, and clients

Austin, TX & San Diego, CA (August 3, 2017) – Ihiji, the leading provider of Remote Systems Management (RSM) solutions for technology integrators since 2009, is unveiling the all new Ihiji ProVue Remote Systems Management platform in booth #3329 during CEDIA, being held in San Diego, September 5-9, 2017. Ihiji ProVue is the union of Ihiji’s two award-winning products, Invision and ServiceManager, focusing on a powerful yet intuitive solution for lifelong customer service and support of smart home and connected devices. The CEDIA launch of Ihiji ProVue allows technology professionals to remotely monitor, manage and support client’s technology in a completely refreshed and reimagined user experience. Everything a home technology professional loves about Ihiji Invision is re-envisioned in the ProVue interface through a total redesign. This redesign greatly simplifies setup and management without sacrificing the power that Ihiji’s solutions are known to provide.

Ihiji will be showcasing the entire ProVue platform, which includes ProVue, a new, rich, web application, ProVue Mobile, an app for in-field technicians and HomeVue, a consumer-facing app for self-service and support. Building on Ihiji’s Vendor Insights Program (VIP), Ihiji ProVue includes improved Ihiji Invision features for auto-discovery, device identification, setup and deep insights utilizing Ihiji’s massive device module and identification library. Technicians and support managers will find Ihiji ProVue (and its counterparts) to be the Remote Systems Management companion they’ve been searching for.

The initial ProVue web release focuses on simplifying setup and management of Remote Systems Management. These improvements come in the form of a total redesign of Ihiji’s traditional RSM solutions with a new user experience and significant improvements to back-end functionality. The improvements include leveraging Ihiji’s seven years of experience and vast data set for auto-device detection and more intelligent device profiling. Ihiji is also showing ProVue Mobile, which will allow field technicians to more easily configure and discover devices while on-site, as well as manage all power reboots while on-the-go. Another addition to the ProVue platform includes Ihiji HomeVue, which allows a customer to get a snapshot of system health and perform self-help reboots. The entire Ihiji ProVue platform is offered under Ihiji’s current Invision and ServiceManager pricing model, allowing dealers to continue to take advantage of the freemium features of Ihiji Invision Lite or more robust features included in Standard service subscriptions.

“Ihiji has spent years working with dealers to understand the challenges of lifetime client support, remote systems management and service plans. Over the past twelve months, our team has honed that focus in on improving the technical remote systems management portion of that equation by improving usability for the dealer. Although a significant focus of ProVue is on simplifying setup and management of remote monitoring, our team has gone to great lengths to look at the bigger picture. The ultimate goal of ProVue and HomeVue is to incorporate additional self-service and value add features for clients,” states Michael Maniscalco, Co-Founder and VP of Product at Ihiji.
