In an effort to make it easier for channel partners to sell and service complex technologies, Ingram Micro announced a new Unified Communications (UC) soft bundle featuring the Cisco Systems Inc. voice solutions and VeraSMART Call Analytics software from Veramark Technologies Inc.
The new UC bundle is available exclusively through Ingram Micro to qualified Cisco partners holding Select Certification designations in the United States. The bundle includes a free copy of Veramark’s VeraSMART Call Analytics software (valued at $3,495) with every Cisco voice solution purchased.
Veramark’s VeraSMART Call Analytics software gathers call detail records and QoS metrics off the Cisco voice system and makes this information available for analysis, reporting and integration with other enterprise data sources. The VeraSMART software provides data for making business decisions that can help drive expense reduction and cost avoidance.
“Unified Communications is a white-hot technology solution that’s not only making it easier for businesses to communicate, it is driving a lucrative cross-selling sales opportunity for our partners who specialize in IP telephony, mobility and networking,” says Ken Bast, vice president, vendor management, Ingram Micro U.S. “By bundling a free copy of Veramark’s VeraSMART Call Analytics software with Cisco’s voice solutions, we are providing our partners a competitive edge and helping them to easily incorporate high-value software applications as part of their Cisco UC solutions sale.”
