IT distributor SYNNEX Corp. has added the Broadview Networks OfficeSuite cloud communications services to its CLOUDSolv UC portfolio, enabling SYNNEX resellers a new recurring revenue stream.
OfficeSuite provides businesses with an IP-based phone solution, including IP phones, unlimited nationwide calling and a Web portal to manage preferences. It has basic and advanced features and call center applications — all without capital investment, maintenance contracts or additional IT resources.
Once certified on the service, SYNNEX resellers can complete OfficeSuite deployments themselves or rely on Broadview Networks' professionals to do so. With either option, Broadview Networks provides nationwide service and support with in-market field representatives.
“SYNNEX’s strategy is to bring best-of-breed unified communications cloud solutions to the channel, giving our customers the opportunity to deliver services and solutions that build stronger relationships with their customers while securing recurring revenue streams," said Peter Larocque, president, US Distribution for SYNNEX. “Broadview’s OfficeSuite cloud-based business phone system is an exceptional solution that fits into our overall UC cloud strategy and contributes to the progress we are making in the channel."
Launched in spring 2011, CLOUDSolv UC is SYNNEX's first cloud offering. According to SYNNEX, it allows VARs to stay relevant to their customers by adding new hosted applications to their portfolio. Plus, resellers can still source their on-premises hardware through SYNNEX.
