Mitel is busy wrangling Canadian business communications resellers for its newly introduced Canadian Exclusive Business Partner (CEBP) Program. Based on the Exclusive Business Partner (EBP) program in the United States, Mitel has created a tailored program offering that meets the specific requirements of the Canadian marketplace.
“We have designed a program that provides a wide range of benefits to Mitel authorizedPARTNERs who choose to standardize on Mitel solutions,” said Jeff Nolan, vice president of Canadian Sales for Mitel. “Be they customer environments in the above 25 user space, a sweet spot in the Canadian market, or larger multisite businesses with thousands of employees, Mitel CEBP participants can avoid the overhead of working with multiple manufacturers to address specific customer requirements.”
The CEBP program provides authorizedPARTNERs with strategic advantages in selling and servicing Mitel’s comprehensive portfolio of unified communications solutions and includes a series of comprehensive benefits for their exclusivity with Mitel. The program benefits include volume discount, PARTNERmarketing dollars, lead generation, executive leadership program, exclusive business partner sales meetings, sales engineering training, post sales support, sharing best practices and Mitel PARTNERlocator.
Industry research firm InfoTech recently recognized Mitel as the leader of the U.S. SMB IP telephony market in 2007. In Canada, Mitel holds second place in enterprise IP lines shipped in 2007. Mitel grew 8 percent in the second quarter of 2008, and holds 25 percent of customers in the sub-400 user category.
