Ring and Arab Business Machine Sign New Partnership

: Ring, the leader in home security, today announced that it has signed a value-added distribution (VAD) agreement with Arab Business Machine Middle East (ABM) for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).  As per the agreement, ABM will promote and distribute Ring’s innovative home security products and solutions and offer value-added services through its extensive channel partner network. Ring is expanding its global presence and operations in response to the region witnessing a positive growth of the property sector with many developers focusing on building master-planned communities and the increasing demand for home security solutions.

“Your home is not an asset – your home is a place that has much more meaning to it and it is something you want to protect and also monitor. Ring believes in keeping homes and communities safe rather than just comfortable and we hope to change the way home owners view security by keeping an eye on their family and property, even when they can’t. Ring re-imagined the doorbell so consumers could respond – using a smartphone – to someone at their front door from anyplace, anytime while simplifying the technology with the combination of App, Cloud and Security hardware. ABM 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. ABM’s experience in selling Apple products for more than a decade gives us further confidence of its capabilities on best in class retail execution for Ring’s range of the products and solutions,” says Mohammad Meraj Hoda, Managing Director of Ring.

Ring has evolved as the leading brand in the Smart Home Security Space represented by 16000 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 VAD, ABM 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. ABM will 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.

“We are continuously evaluating new and innovative technologies and emerging trends to add to our portfolio, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the home security industry in the residential security sector in the MENA region. This makes our partnership with Ring a perfect fit. We see exciting new possibilities in this partnership with Ring across the MENA region and it will help ABM to better address our customer’s needs in today’s environment of ever-increasing demand for home security solutions,” said Ghassan Bendali, General Manager of ABM Middle East.
