Nuvias Launches Unified Communications Practice

Steve-Harris

Nuvias has launched its EMEA Unified Communications (UC) Practice. The Practice is based on the UC capabilities and services provided by SIPHON Networks, which became part of the Nuvias Group in October 2016.

SIPHON is already established in the UK and Benelux. The UC practice will be rolled out across EMEA over the coming months, through Nuvias regional branches, starting with Germany. More Nuvias staff are being added throughout EMEA to support vendor and reseller partners.

Existing UC vendors and new vendors are expected to take advantage of Nuvias’ growing UC capability across EMEA to increase sales in the region. Likewise, it is anticipated that both existing and new Nuvias reseller/integrator channel partners across EMEA will take up the opportunity to enter this thriving market or expand their UC business.

Paul Eccleston, CEO of Nuvias, said: “SIPHON is an exceptional company with a very strong offering for the channel, as demonstrated by its phenomenal growth in the last few years. SIPHON’s strong technical and solution engineering expertise has enabled it to work closely with vendors and resellers on the development of UC solutions; this factor, together with the provision of a very high level of service and solutions capabilities from SIPHON, has been instrumental in its success.”

Steve Harris (pictured), EVP Unified Communications, Nuvias; and Managing Director SIPHON, commented: “A major reason for joining Nuvias last year was the chance it gave us to grow and expand both in the UK and internationally. The UC EMEA launch of Nuvias lays the foundations for achieving that ambition.

“This is a very exciting time in UC across EMEA, with really significant opportunities for the IT channel to move into the lucrative UC market and conquer the legacy competition. We believe that, as part of Nuvias, we are the right solutions and technology enabler to provide the service, support and technical know-how our channel partners want to help them make the most of this market opportunity.”
