Anchorage, AK, April 22, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- gScreen, the makers of the world's first dual-screen 17-inch the laptop, today announced a new global distribution strategy for its SpaceBook dual-screen notebook line and its other new products coming to market in 2013.
Previously, gScreen was selling the SpaceBook Gen1 dual-screen line of notebooks direct to customers through its online store, and that strategy has proven to be difficult for the small Alaska company, as it has struggled to keep up with the USA and global demand.
“When we launched our SpaceBook Gen1 online to the USA and Canadian market in 2011, we had over 11,000 SpaceBook orders in 5-days, but, we could not process these orders because we could not accept our customer's credit cards at the time,” said Gordon Stewart, Founder & CEO at gScreen.
“This was due to the 90-day production time line with our factory partner in China, and the 'under-30-day' merchant account delivery time-line, as you can imagine, this was extremely frustrating,” he said.
This summer, gScreen will release the new improved SpaceBook Gen2 with upgraded options including Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge in late Summer, with an improved design. The SpaceBook Gen2 will be faster with more memory and will have Microsoft Windows 7 and 8 options. Future SpaceBook builds, such as the 5-pound, 13-inch SpaceBook, will be tested with Google Chrome as a potential OS option. GSCREEN'S new distribution partnerships will help speed the delivery of new dual-screen sizes to the global market.
“Our new distribution partners across the globe have the capital, distribution experience and penetration into the channel that we need to create a strong global brand for the SpaceBook laptop series, we will leverage the strength of our distribution partners to foster global growth for the SpaceBook product line in 2013,” Mr. Stewart said.
Under this new distribution model, distribution partners will have the responsibility of expanding markets in their region, driving sales, marketing and servicing customers. Distribution partners will have the opportunity to purchase the SpaceBook line of laptops, factory-direct and receive the best available volume prices.
“We are speaking with new distributors in the USA, Japan, Germany, India, Russia, Brazil, England, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE. Several distributors have asked for exclusive sales rights for their region or country, and we are looking at the experience and strengths of these distributors before we make any final decisions,” Mr. Stewart said.
During April and May, gScreen will be offering all their new distributors aggressive low prices, to help grow volume globally, and by leveraging volume purchases, they expect to see strong competitive prices offered to SpaceBook end users globally. New distributors will be listed on the gScreen home page, so that customers around the globe can find a retail location.
