ScanSource announced earlier this year it will be the first wholesale distribution partner in the EU for Avaya’s cloud solutions. Based on Avaya’s Powered by IP Office, ScanSource will provide its reseller partners with cloud-based solutions they can market to their end-user customer base.
Following this announcement, ScanSource coordinated a UK Avaya Roadshow to support their reseller partners with two ‘ScanSource VaaS-t Powered by Avaya IP Office’ workshops in Guildford and Manchester Bury. Ioan MacRae, UK Managing Director of Avaya and Paul Emery, VP of ScanSource Communications UK addressed their reseller partners to demystify the cloud and promote the business growth opportunities it represents.
Mark Stephens, Head of Group Services, Charterhouse Voice and Data commented, “Having attended ScanSource’s VaaS-t Powered by Avaya IP Office workshop, Charterhouse Voice and Data is now ready to go to market with this competitively-priced cloud solution. The beauty of it is that we can utilise our existing IP Office skillset, while taking advantage of all the benefits that cloud can bring, to provide our customers with an on-premise, hybrid, or entirely cloud-based Avaya offering. This puts us in an extremely powerful position and, thanks to ScanSource, I’m looking forward to accelerating the cloud conversations with our customers.”
