Sangoma Technologies has unveiled a newly expanded global partner program. With a theme of Make the Connection, the program will now include a Certified Application Partner category that supports the wide range of third-party developers with communication applications that run on Sangoma’s voice and data connectivity components. The company also is adding new benefits for its existing distribution and reseller partners.
Sangoma’s global partner program will connect complementary application partners with distribution partners and resellers who the company says will all benefit from a host of services, including sales, technical and marketing support, resulting in more opportunities to increase industry recognition and expand customer sales.
To qualify as a Certified Application Partner, the vendor must have developed an application that has a tight integration with at least one Sangoma product. Certified Application Partners deliver a wide range of VoIP applications for use in leading PBX, IVR, contact center and data communication applications that run on Sangoma’s voice and data connectivity components throughout the world. Leading application vendors joining the new program include Aastra, Barracuda Networks, Fonality, 3CX, pbxnsip, ScopServ International, inConcert, Vicidial and many more.
“We are excited to be among the initial members of the Certified Application Partner category, said Denis Trépanier, president & CEO of ScopServ International, a developer of IP-PBX applications for SMBs, selling into more than 30 countries. “With this program, Sangoma has demonstrated its commitment to helping us succeed in 2010 and beyond by providing the best in sales tools, training, support and marketing tools, as well as connecting us with the right channel partners that will us help grow our business.”
