Success group award team

WestconGroup has announced that the company’s Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) Practice has been recognised by Plantronics with the ‘Unified Communications Best Practice’ award at their European & African “Partner Smarter” partner conference held recently in Budapest, Hungary.

The “Best Practice“ award acknowledges Westcon’s broad experience and strong engagement to integrate Plantronics within a range of UCC solutions including Avaya, Cisco & Microsoft Skype for Business (formerly Lync). Additionally, WestconGroup’s partner engagement and development programs have broadened the channel for Plantronics and supported a significant increase in sales through a number of newly recruited partners across both the European and African regions.

“WestconGroup has a deep understanding of how the UCC market is evolving and they’ve been a strong partner in executing a channel strategy that has reinforced Plantronics’ leadership position in the region,” said Philip Vanhoutte, senior vice president and managing director, Europe & Africa at Plantronics “Our ‘Unified Communications Best Practice’ award recognizes the contribution Weston has made and we deeply value our partnership.”

“The WestconGroup UCC Practice is optimised to support vendors, like Plantronics, succeed in the rapidly growing UCC market,” said Guy Koster, general manager & practice lead, for WestconGroup’s UCC, EMEA. “Plantronics is a significant part of our UCC vendor eco-system and we are honoured they have chosen to recognise WestconGroup’s deep segment expertise and focus, our innovative tools and programmes, and our partner engagement team for excellence in this area.”
