VIP partners also have access to the only industry remote monitoring standard provided by Ihiji as well as the ability to get deeper insights through the Ihiji Device Visibility Protocol (DVP).

“We are pleased to announce the combined Onkyo, Integra and Pioneer brands as our latest VIP additions,” states Evan Marty, Product Manager at Ihiji. “Onkyo & Pioneer Corporation is helping lead its dealers and products into the future with improved data insights, which ultimately provide for a better customer experience .”

Dealers are actively seeking to specify and install products equipped with remote monitoring capabilities. By offering an Ihiji Invision monitored product, VIP partners stay competitive and in high demand. This partnership also provides VIP partners and Ihiji dealers better product support and education in the form of documentation, trainings and sales materials.

Participating manufacturers gain visibility into how products perform and what features are used throughout the product lifetime.  Marketing departments have access to rich insights, support teams receive helpful health and status information, engineers have performance and health details at their fingertips, customers have improved reliability, and dealers can make faster and more informed customer service decisions.
