by | Oct 19, 2015 | Industry News

Unify’s OpenScape and Circuit solutions expand market opportunities for channel partners in the small to large enterprise space.  

Munich, Germany and Boca Raton, FL– Oct. 19, 2015: As part of its ongoing commitment to becoming a more channel-focused company, Unify, a leading communications software and services firm, today announced a distribution agreement in North America with ScanSource, a leading international Value Added Distributor (VAD) of specialty technology products. Today’s news follows an announcement earlier this year, where Unify and ScanSource announced distribution agreements in the UK and parts of Europe, and opens significant new opportunities for both companies.  

The ScanSource Catalyst business unit, which distributes voice, video, and data convergence solutions, is now authorized to sell and support Unify’s OpenScape solutions and Circuit platform. Available to ScanSource channel partners in the U.S. and Canada, the Unify OpenScape portfolio provides partners with an easy-to-deploy unified communications (UC) solution that offers small and medium businesses (SMBs) as well as emerging and large enterprises the functionality, scalability and reliability of enterprise-class communications.  Whether companies want to deploy traditional voice or fully featured UC, Unify delivers an affordable, easy-to-manage solution. 

Also now available via ScanSource channel partners, Unify’s ground-breaking Circuit platform revolutionizes mobile collaboration and communication, bringing together high-quality voice, video, real-time document editing and management, messaging and file sharing into a single view, across an entire team. The context of people, content and business transactions fuels the New Way to Work.

“Unify’s solutions dovetail with many channel partners’ existing IT portfolio. The flexibility of an on-premise or virtualized service that’s deployed on top of existing infrastructure, doesn’t require additional hardware, and can maximize limited budgets, and reduce high operational costs,” said John DeLozier, Senior Vice President, Channels, North America at Unify. “ScanSource’s expertise combined with Unify’s world-class portfolio is a winning combination that can provide great selling opportunities for partners. We look forward to expanding our offerings for channel partners with the advanced programs and professional services jointly offered by ScanSource, and Unify.

“We are pleased to expand our portfolio of communications and collaboration offerings with the addition of Unify’s OpenScape solution and Circuit,” said Tom Walker, vice president of sales, ScanSource Catalyst. “We are committed to providing a comprehensive platform of communications solutions to our partners, coupled with our value-added services offering, so that they can continue to meet the changing demands of their end-user customers.”
