Siemens OpenOffice ME a Hit with Nimans Resellers

Distributor Nimans is toasting record monthly Siemens sales as demand for the new HiPath OpenOffice ME system begins to take off.

Dealers have given an enthusiastic welcome to the recent launch of Siemens’ innovative system which has been described as a “genuine reason” to use IP telephony in the SME market – helping Nimans smash its previous sales records.

“Our commitment to roadshows and workshops to assist dealers with this new product development, has paid off, along with a range of valuable dealer incentives such as 70% off the list price for starter/demo packs and free web-based sales and technical training,” said a delighted Mike Tongue, Siemens Business Manager at Nimans.

Mike said HiPath OpenOffice ME is a great solution for IP telephony in the SME arena as it benefits from many valuable unified communication capabilities such as ‘presence’ and mobility for up to 150 users, all combined in a single server.

He explained that many small businesses still use digital or analogue connections and added: “It is clear the market is genuinely excited by this unified communications solution as it is much more than just an IP product. There is massive potential out there for dealers to exploit.”

Resellers are also embracing a new range of OpenStage phones which are available in digital, IP and SIP format. “One of the key things of HiPath OpenOffice ME is its simplicity. Everything you need comes in the box,” said Mike who pointed out that there’s a range of attractive start-up offers currently available.

“When dealers buy a starter kit they qualify for an additional 25% off their first order (up to four systems) which off-sets the price of the starter kit itself. In addition for every system sold a dealer will receive £100 in bonus bonds, for a limited period.”

Mike concluded: “We have laid the foundations for even more success and are confident that 2008 will be our best year ever in terms of Siemens sales, as further interest and sales are generated for the HiPath OpenOffice ME and a host of other products. Nimans and Siemens make it easy for dealers to get on board; with effective training and simple to install products swelling our customer base. We would like to thank all our loyal customers for their continued support.”
