NEC Hit the Road

Exertis NEC

NEC, in conjunction with their UK distributors, have started a series of five roadshows throughout UK introducing existing and new resellers to NEC’s new SV9100 system. Built upon the success of NEC’s SV8000 portfolio and with the ethos of ‘Evolution not Revolution’ the system boasts an impressive suite of on-board and external applications, evolved handset portfolio and is a highly cost effective solution scaling to over 800 extensions on a single site.

John Bird, Head of Systems and Support Services at Exertis commented ‘ The SV9100 is perfectly positioned to bring new and existing resellers into new markets with a product evolved from proven technology. With a clear migration path for existing SV8100 installations to be upgraded to SV9100 and a product that now supports almost 900 extensions per node, the ability for a reseller to deploy enterprise grade solutions has never been so easy. NEC solutions are one of the easiest to install in the channel, with ‘wizards and scripts’ built into the engineers programming tools to simplify the installation process and ensure that systems fall into the category of easy to learn, install and maintain’.

‘Exertis are proud of the mutual success both NEC and we have achieved over the last 5 years since we signed a distribution agreement with NEC for UC solutions’ explained Bird. ‘NEC were the first voice solutions partner to join our UC portfolio and during the last 5 years we’ve witnessed significant double digit year on year revenue growth, a base or trading accounts expanding at over 20% year on year, we were kindly awarded NEC’s fastest growing NEC Distributor in EMEA on two occasions, and have deployed NEC solutions into our Basingstoke, Stoke and Altham offices. During the same period, NEC have grown to become the leading manufacturer of IP and TDM solutions worldwide, below 100 extns’

Andy Clark, NEC Voice Solutions Business Manager at Exertis enthused ‘ These 5 roadshows held jointly with NEC and their distribution partners are the ideal platform for our customers to see the product first hand, understand key enhancements over the existing SV8100 and, importantly, know that only an additional 2 hour technical migration course is all that is needed to bring the product into their portfolio. Feedback from the event has been extremely positive and we expect to be fulfilling our first orders in the next couple of weeks’.
