VS Networks is a third-party digital marketing firm with years of expertise in the farm and outdoor power equipment industry. The STHIL EDGE platform was originally designed and pilot tested by VS Networks, and in our current partnership with STIHL we are responsible for providing all EDGE-related set-up, maintenance, and support services needed by system subscribers.
VS Networks offers a variety of custom setup options to match the unique needs of any dealer. Available mounting options include wall mounts, counter stands, and STIHL rack fixtures. VS Networks works with dealers to determine optimal hardware, placement, and mounts so that the system can operate at peak effectiveness in any showroom, regardless of layout or size.
First, after discussing set-up options, each location will be provided with a detailed installation plan – including hardware, mountings, and placement – for approval. Upon approval all hardware will ship and installation will be scheduled. Dealers are given the option of conducting a VS Networks-supported self-install or hiring a 3rd-party to install the system for a small fee. Following installation, VS Networks will conduct a comprehensive system training session (lasting approximately one hour).
