Avaya and the Voice of the Channel

Channel partners have always played a very large role in Avaya’s go-to-market efforts, and have been key to the company’s growth, helping to support Avaya’s large installed customer base. With a new CEO and relatively new North America Channel Chief, Avaya has been on a mission to listen to and engage with its channel partners to better understand their views and concerns.

Extra control of the UC&C environment is therefore provided.

EMC-Catalyst Telecom Partnership to Offer EMC-Avaya IP Office Bundles

The new partnership with EMC will be a game changer for partners and will provide them with storage play so IP Office users' needs can be met.
