“This year and next seems to be the “time of the upsell” for installers. While helping their customers achieve an integrated home, custom installers and consumer electronics professional are looking to upsell products with clear value-added benefits. At the same time, homeowners are saying ‘yes’ to upsells that have compelling benefits and value,” says Sharon Cuppett, vice president of marketing at zBoost. “The goal of our Guide is to help installers and consumers explore solutions that streamline wireless technology across our mobile society.”
For custom installers, the Guide provides valuable material to aid in the upsell of a profitable add-on, cell phone signal booster, which is great for clients looking to make the integrated home a reality through their media rooms, offices, family living areas and alarm systems.
