IP phone maker snom on Thursday named its Americas Gold and Platinum Partners for 2012.
Distributor Novus LLC has attained Platinum Partner status and is one of nine distributors worldwide — and the only one in North America — to do so. ABP International Inc. and TeleDynamics LLP have become Gold Partners; they’re two of 10 globally to earn the distinction.
snom awards Platinum and Gold status based on sales numbers and the levels of support partners provided to their customers in the previous year. Now, Novus will be able to take advantage of joint marketing and other sales activities with snom. Gold-level partners get access to benefits as well, such as channel advertising support.
"These distributors have gone above and beyond simply selling our products," said Michael Knieling, snom’s executive director.
snom’s Partner Program is comprised of three levels of distributors — Platinum, Gold and Official. The distributors sell to VARs, telecom resellers, interconnects, and IT services and managed IT services providers in North America.
