snom technology AG has named its annual list of elite Platinum- and Gold-level distributors for the North America, Central America and South America regions. The companies attained the honor for being top sellers of snom technology’s suite of advanced VoIP business phones and accessories over the past year.
In the U.S., ABP International of Dallas and Novus LLC of Connecticut were named Platinum-level distributors, while D&H Distributing Company of Pennsylvania and Interlink Communications Systems Inc. of Florida were named to the Gold level. In Peru, Suministros Tecnologicos E.I.R.L. was also named to the Gold level for 2010.
“We are pleased to honor this select group of technology distributors as Platinum and Gold partners,” said Mike Storella, director of business development for snom. “These two echelons are reserved for the top performers in both sales revenue and volume over the last year while also demonstrating the highest level of commitment and dedication to the sales and marketing of snom products. We want to applaud them for their efforts.”
snom has three levels of distributors – Platinum, Gold and Official – as part of its Partner Program, a comprehensive channel sales and marketing program designed to broaden snom’s global sales coverage and drive sales for the company’s portfolio of advanced IP business phones. Launched in 2007, the program is anchored by snom’s distributor partners who provide the mission-critical sales support and distribution for snom’s products on the ground to snom Registered and Certified VAR partners, its growing network of trained telecom resellers, interconnect, IT services and managed IT service providers.
A snom Platinum Distributor, the highest level of the program, is achieved by being the top seller of snom products both in volume and sales revenue. Platinum-level distributors are often organizations that have spent the longest time with snom, achieved the highest stocking levels and whose senior management shares a similar vision and mission. A Platinum partner receives a number of benefits from snom, including receiving the highest levels of sales, marketing and technical support.
A snom Gold Distributor, often a newer distributor partner and one with high growth potential, is achieved by meeting annual sales and volume targets. A snom Official Distributor is one who has committed to stocking snom products while also generating a baseline number of sales of snom phones over the last year.
A total of 21 companies worldwide were recognized as snom Gold and Platinum level distributors for 2010.
