Using our product images on your website

We quite often receive requests from resellers who want to use the product images of the kit we supply on their own website.

We host different sized images and product datasheets for lots of the products we sell, these are stored logically using our product part codes, this means they can be easily accessed and pulled for use on your website.

It’s pretty simple really!

We have produced a guide for programmers which will explain everything you need to know so you can start integrating images into your own website.

Download the guide here: Using ProVu’s product images

We try our best to store images for all of our products, but if there is anything that you come across that is missing and you would like to access, please let us know and we will do our best to add the images to our library.

ITSPA updated recommendations for provisioning security

 

 

ITSPA has recently released a new guidance paper surrounding remote provisioning of phones and other SIP devices. This new document shares best common practices among ITSPA members to help ensure their provisioning infrastructure is secure.

ITSPA Chair Eli Katz stated

This is an excellent update to the existing guidance and should be considered a starting point rather than a complete solution. This is just a part of ITSPA’s ongoing work in tackling cyber-crime and fraud as well as driving up best practice within the membership. We must ensure the industry is one step ahead in the security battle.

We have a new user friendly mobile site!

As a B2B distributor, the majority of users visiting our website are using desktop devices, but it’s no surprise that more and more users are finding us through their mobile devices – In fact 20% of our website views are now from mobile users.

So something needed to be done to make our site a little more user friendly for these users!

Our new mobile site is now up and running. We’ve adopted a simple method of creating a mobile style sheet – so that, the way our site is viewed, is different depending on the size of the screen / browser. This uses the same content as our main site so all the information you may need to access is still there – we don’t show you a cut down version of our site.
