Global distributor's geographic footprint and strong distribution channels will help improve smart technology leader’s cash position and lower inventory levels
SmartRent, Inc. (NYSE: SMRT) (“SmartRent” or the “Company”), a leading provider of smart home and property operations solutions for the rental housing industry, has entered into an agreement with ADI Global Distribution, a Resideo Technologies, Inc. company, to serve as its preferred distribution partner.
A leading distributor of security, AV and low-voltage products, ADI's expansive network allows for efficient and timely order fulfillment for SmartRent’s 500+ rental housing customers, fortifying the Company’s inventory and distribution activities, and enabling it to streamline inventory management and enhance product availability.
“Demand for our solutions remains robust, and it’s imperative that we are able to meet the needs of our customers while continuing to prioritize the innovation and product enhancements that keep us at the forefront of the industry,” said SmartRent CEO Lucas Haldeman. “ADI is one of the most trusted names in the space, and we are proud to partner with them to meet our fulfillment needs and exceed customer expectations. This expanded relationship with ADI strengthens our overall partnership with Resideo.”
ADI was selected for its best-in-class operations, extensive product portfolio and local inventory availability. ADI has been supplying SmartRent with more than 100,000 Resideo thermostats per year, and this agreement will expand across the full product offering. In addition to prompt order fulfillment, the multiyear agreement provides SmartRent with needed hardware on demand while reducing its cash investment in inventory. Over time, SmartRent anticipates the decrease in on hand inventory will increase its cash balances.
"ADI is committed to serving as the indispensable partner of choice for our customers," said Rob Aarnes, President of ADI Global Distribution. "We're excited to expand upon our relationship with SmartRent to help them navigate their product needs and drive toward long-term business goals, while also resulting in incremental revenue growth for ADI."
