Arab Business Machine is very well placed in the MENA region to position our smart home security products with its broader reach across key retailers, Internet Service Providers and online stores,” says Mohammad Meraj Hoda, Managing Director of Ring.
Ring has evolved as a brand in the smart home security space represented by 16,000 plus stores across North America and Ring’s products globally have been hailed as dependable second set of eyes and ears to deter would-be thieves from entering homes and communities. It has been proven that Ring doorbells can reduce crime by up to 55% in neighbourhoods, and the goal is to bring the same convenience and security to the Middle East neighbourhoods.
As the distributor, Arab Business Machine will distribute Ring’s latest suite of smart home security products such as Ring Video Doorbell, Ring Video Doorbell Pro, Video Doorbell Elite, Ring Floodlight Cam and the new Ring Spotlight Cam and conduct channel engagement, training and activation programs for partners. Arab Business Machinewill also set up go-to-market strategies with key retail partners and provide the needed infrastructure for micro-channel to engage with the Ring brand.
