Panasonic Consolidates Companies, To Rely 100% on Sales Channels

Panasonic Broadcast & Television Systems Company is moving its sales to a 100% channel approach as part of a consolidation with Panasonic Computer Solutions Company and Panasonic Professional Display Company under the umbrella Panasonic Solutions Company. Rance Poehler will serve as president.

“At Panasonic we have always been focused on providing the most reliable technology platforms to support our customers’ missions,” says Joseph Taylor, Chairman and CEO. “With this consolidation, Panasonic is streamlining its relationships with customers and offering them a broad portfolio approach. We believe this change will make Panasonic an easier company with which to do business and enhance our ability to deliver superior products, services and support to commercial and government customers.”

Poehler says the re-organization will allow Panasonic to use technology and innovation from multiple engineering and research centers to create new solutions, built with the input of our customers and ecosystem of channel partners, to substantially grow our business.

“Offering Panasonic’s array of mobile computing, video, and display technologies under one banner makes sense,” says Roger Kay, principal analyst at Endpoint Technologies Associates.  “Many of Panasonic’s government and commercial customers rely on the company’s full suite of technologies to streamline operations, gather and analyze business intelligence, protect and train employees, and improve customer experience.”
