Digium Signs Distribution Agreement with ScanSource
Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, announced today that it has signed an agreement with ScanSource, a leading global provider of technology products and services. ScanSource provides a complete range of Unified Communications (UC) products and services across multiple vendor partners, providing pre-sale and design consultancy, as well as project implementation and post-installation support. The agreement allows ScanSource to expand its portfolio with Digium’s award-winning Switchvox UC business phone system, as well as Digium IP phones, gateways, and telephony cards to resellers in the US and Canada.
Switchvox provides enterprise-caliber UC features at an all-inclusive low price, making it ideal for small and mid-size companies, contact centers, schools, universities, government, and nonprofit organizations. Adding Switchvox to ScanSource’s portfolio provides the advantage of being able to offer a single solution that is not only affordable, but has the flexibility of being deployed according to an organization’s business needs and will scale as the business grows.
“Digium’s solutions are a valuable addition to our expanding portfolio of UC offerings,” said Yvette McKenzie, vice president of merchandising, ScanSource Communications. “Their experience in delivering UC solutions for the small- and mid-market arena enables us to provide a broader set of high-quality solutions to resellers looking to meet their end-users’ needs in this space. With our collective knowledge and expertise, Digium and ScanSource can provide the solutions, support and services to help our resellers uncover new UC opportunities.”
“We’re excited to work with ScanSource, a respected technology provider. ScanSource’s knowledge and expertise in the UC industry will be a great benefit to Digium’s existing reseller channel,” said Gayle Magee, Director of Worldwide Distribution Sales at Digium. “This partnership also provides the ideal opportunity for traditional Telecom and IT resellers to converge their expertise and drive new revenue from selling Switchvox UC, Digium’s award-winning IP PBX.”
