News : ShoreTel Simplifies Partner Program Ready for ANZ Cloud Launch
Australia/New Zealand, September, 2015 -- ShoreTel is ramping up its channel partner program, with a simplified offering, paving the way for local partners to easily incorporate the vendor’s cloud offerings when they become available locally.
In the United States market the changes will see the merger of two previously separate cloud and onsite partner programs into a single channel program, something made possible by the introduction of ShoreTel’s Connect, a single UC platform across onsite, cloud and hybrid deployments.
Jamie Romanin, ShoreTel ANZ managing director, says the changes are an important step in preparing local partners for the future availability of ShoreTel Connect Cloud in region.
"While we don’t have a date set for the launch of a local cloud service, the simplicity of the new program will make it easy for our partners to incorporate ShoreTel Connect Cloud as part of their portfolio," Romanin says.
ShoreTel says the changes mean partners now have control over how they meet their commitments and can do so through a combination of onsite, cloud and hybrid sales – for those with cloud offerings in market – and ShoreTel Connect training.
