Azlan, the enterprise Division of Tech Data says it is making it easy for Tandberg partners to transition their business into the world of Cisco by setting up a range of programmes and supporting services specifically designed to smooth the process.
TDAzlan has set up a hotline support desk, partner portal, a series of fast-track training webinars, and a credit accelerator programme which will open up immediate and extensive credit lines for qualifying Tandberg partners.
Joel Chimoindes, Director of Unified Communications at Azlan, said: “We are very keen to ensure that these partners are welcomed into the Cisco community and to provide the supporting services they will need in order to maximise the significant opportunity which Cisco presents them with. Working with the Cisco brand will not only bring them increased market credibility, but also the opportunity to embrace Cisco’s wider Unified Communications and Collaboration technology portfolio. We can help them either to invest appropriately in the skills required; to broker relationships with existing Cisco partners who have complementary skills; or we can provide them with white-label services to support and extend their current capabilities.
“Azlan is rapidly becoming the distribution partner of choice for advanced solutions in key growth areas of the market and is continuing to drive unified communications solutions into the channel. We are fully committed to our partners’ long-term business development and will continue to forge relationships that will enable us to support the channel, to expand the knowledge base, and to enter new markets”, said Chimoindes.
