Westcon Group today announced the company’s Unified Communications and Collaborations solutions practice has been named ‘UK Distributor of the Year’ by Avaya.

The award was presented by Avaya’s UK MD, Simon Culmer, and Channel Sales Lead, Barry Tuffs, to Westcon’s John Nolan at the 2015 Partner Connection event held at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London. Over 140 Avaya channel partners and developers were in attendance.

“We are delighted to honour Westcon with this award in recognition of their commitment and quality of service in the Avaya channel. Westcon’s teams have consistently demonstrated impressive logistics and operational abilities whilst continuing to invest in developing our partners’ skills and competencies,” commented Simon Culmer, Avaya UK&I Managing Director.

Demand for the Avaya IP Office platform, the company’s midmarket solution, and a welcome resurgence in the enterprise space with large corporates looking to refresh their technology have proved positive for both companies. Opportunity values are on the rise as mid-sized UK enterprises increasingly invest in complete solutions that include mobility, networking, video conferencing and contact centres. Westcon attributes this growth to working closely with Avaya and its partners to target the right solution for the appropriate market opportunity.

“This award is a fantastic accolade for the Westcon team. It recognises our efforts, focus and sheer will to win by working with our partners across their entire business, not just logistics. Our recent investments in our Avaya training offering, service contract renewals, demonstration facilities and marketing services, all continue to make Westcon a real strategic partner to our Avaya customers” said Tony Nevill, Westcon Group Managing Director UK&I.
