News : Softcat, Solar and Incom Get ShoreTel Cloud Nod
London, UK, July 29, 2015 -- ShoreTel has signed Softcat, Solar Communications and Incom as the maiden partners for its new ShoreTel Cloud for Partner solution, which it claims will satisfy the desire among mid-market customers for hybrid comms.
Talking to CRN, Adrian Hipkiss, EMEA vice president at ShoreTel, said the solution will enable resellers to offer ShoreTel contact centre and unified communications technology as a service but without having to install and manage it in their own datacentres.
The new scheme permits some capex purchases to be mixed with the opex spending model, so end users can deploy a hybrid cloud and on-premise solution if they wish.
Softcat, Solar and Incom worked with ShoreTel to develop the solution, which will now be opened to ShoreTel's wider channel, Hipkiss said.
Later in the summer, ShoreTel will launch Connect, which unifies its 14.2 on-premise solution and Sky cloud offering (which it inherited through its 2012 acquisition of M5) on one operating platform.

More Editorial From ShoreTel
ShoreTel delivers IP telephony solutions to the enterprise. The spark for this solution emerged out of frustration. While purchasing a phone system at a previous venture, ShoreTel''''s co-founders were confounded by products short on features and long on complexity. So they created a better solution.
Softcat is a Marlow-based IT infrastructure provider founded by Peter Kelly in 1993. Martin Hellawell is the CEO. Colin Brown is the current managing director. It has UK offices in Bristol, London, Manchester, Leeds and Marlow.
