USRobotics Selects Keating Technologies for Canadian Sales and Marketing

Markham, ON - Keating Technologies today announced an agreement with USRobotics, provider of the world’s No. 1 selling modem brand, to deliver sales and marketing services for its analog modem and new high-speed Internet access products in Canada.

“Keating’s proven track record in maximizing operational efficiencies and expanding distribution fits well with our go-to-market strategy,” said Brock Evans, director, USRobotics, Canada.

“With its considerable USRobotics’ sales and service history, we are confident Keating Technologies can provide extensive coverage for our current technologies while developing the market for our newest products in broadband access and wireless networking for homes and small businesses.”

With its strong brand, No. 1 market share position, and highly skilled team base, USRobotics is extending its analog modem leadership to the emerging markets of cable and DSL modems, wireless networking products and Internet devices.

“We are looking forward to again providing sales and marketing services to this industry leader,” says Larry J.
