Avaya Inc. Announces New Midmarket Select Program
Nov 18 15
Avaya Inc. has announced the new Avaya Midmarket Select program. Avaya Midmarket Select Program is a new midmarket program for a limited number of Avaya Connect channel partners through which members will be able to offer Select Engagement Packages-a new set of business communications packages tailored to this market segment. Select Engagement Packages provide a complete solution for unified communications, contact center, video, networking, mobility, and professional services to help midsized companies adopt enterprise-class business communications at total cost of ownership levels unmatched by competitors. Members of the program gain "white-glove concierge" support and pricing, demonstrating an increase in commitment from Avaya to its midmarket partners. With more than a dozen channel partners already signed up in the US, Canada and Europe, the Avaya Midmarket Select Program is open to a limited number of Avaya partners around the world who meet requirements for training, expertise, business plans and growth targets. To help Midmarket Select Program partners achieve their growth targets, Avaya will provide increased sales and marketing resources, including training and demand generation support. Arrow Systems Integration, Carousel Industries, ConvergeOne (formerly NACR), Strategic Products and Services (SPS), GSolutionz, Connex Telecommunications and Maintel are among the channel partners already involved in the Avaya Midmarket Select Program. The Select Engagement Packages will be exclusively available through the Midmarket Select Program partners, and will dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership for purchase, deployment and support as compared to similar, competing solutions. The packages include a "full stack" solution that integrates unified communications, contact center, video, mobility, networking and services - everything a midsized business needs to engage its customers, employees, and partners. The Select Engagement Packages simplify end-user provisioning with intuitive management tools that speed deployment time and keep operational costs low. Full virtualization and integrated Wi-Fi access points, network switches, and session border controllers lower total cost of ownership. Flexible access features and WebRTC-enabled "click-to-call" capabilities integrated into browser-based applications, such as Office365, Google Apps for Work, and Salesforce simplify end-user tasks and increase productivity. Avaya Connect channel partners also can deploy Avaya IP Office Platform as a subscription-based cloud service to their customers, with identical platform capabilities across private, public or hybrid cloud deployment options. Avaya midmarket cloud offers built on Avaya IP Office Platform, including Powered by Avaya IP Office solution and Customer Engagement OnAvaya - Google Cloud Platform. Certified Avaya Channel Partners around the world can deploy the fully-featured Avaya IP Office Platform in their data center and offer unified communications as a service to their customers or to other channel partners. Announced in March, Customer Engagement OnAvaya - Google Cloud Platform is available through authorized Avaya and Google channel partners. To keep ongoing costs low and enable business growth, Avaya Select Engagement Packages include integrated support services with major software upgrade licenses for Avaya IP Office, video and contact center components. Customers can also choose from a broad range of additional Avaya Professional, Support and Networking Managed Services.
