ScanSource Communications Europe Expands Polycom Relationship

Distributor ScanSource Communications Europe has announced the expansion of its relationship in Europe with Polycom by incorporating the vendor’s KIRK Wireless Solution product range into its portfolio.

The distributor announced an agreement with Polycom in October 2010 to carry the entire line of video and audio products in Germany, bringing one of ScanSource’s strongest partnerships in North America to Europe.

The KIRK Wireless Solution is built on the international DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) standard, providing a cost-effective, highly secure and reliable wireless telephony solution. The modular nature of the KIRK Solution allows customers to easily expand coverage, voice traffic and number of users, making it ideal for businesses of all sizes to improve employee productivity, mobility and reaction time.

“The inclusion of these cost-effective, flexible and user-friendly DECT solutions for IP and analogue PBXs is a natural progression of our European partnership with Polycom,” said Gregory Genart, Merchandising Director, ScanSource Communications Europe. “It also fits nicely into our offering, as our reseller partners specialising in voice technologies now have the opportunity to extend their solutions with DECT, which can often be more effective than other wireless extensions for voice technologies.”

“We are very excited about this partnership with ScanSource Communications Europe,” said Wilfried Schon, DECT Channel Manager DACH & Eastern Europe, Polycom. “They have a hugely impressive experience in the voice space, fantastic relationships with their customers specialising in Avaya and other vendors’ solutions, and are clearly one of the market leaders. Additionally, ScanSource’s European coverage and value-added proposition form a solid platform on which the channel can develop business to the benefit of all players.”
