Unify kicks off channel promotion
Unify, the Atos brand for communications software and services, recently held a partner roadshow in Dubai to unveil competitive bundles for solution providers in the UAE. Unify was joined at the roadshow by its Dubai-based distribution partners: Mindware, Oxygen and TechAccess, to unveil the OpenScape Business promotion for channel partners, aimed at SME and midmarket clients.
The competitive bundles campaign introduced by Unify for OpenScape Business system Models X3, X5 and X8 array will run until 30 June 2017.
Feras Zeidan, Vice President, Middle East and Africa (MEA), said that as Unify is celebrating its transformation journey in the regional IT market, it has launched a very competitive promotion to highlight the business benefits of OpenScape Business for small businesses and midmarket customers. Zeidan said the partner event in Dubai, which was supported by all of Unify’s local distribution partners, was about celebrating the company’s achievements in the Unified Communications (UC) and Collaboration space and on-boarding a select number of new channel partners. “As the Middle East and Africa is transforming into a digital factory, it is vital that we equip our channel partners with solutions that differentiate them and give them the competitive edge they need to succeed in the market,” he said.
OpenScape Business offers small and medium-sized enterprises everything they need for their individual and diverse communication requirements, unified in a single flexible and scalable solution. “The OpenScape Business architecture allows use independently of existing telephony infrastructure, regardless of whether this is classic telephony, IP or DECT,” Zeidan pointed out.
Asif Khan, Distribution Manager, Middle East and Africa at Unify, added that OpenScape Business is the modern and future-proof all-in-one solution for UC and Collaboration, specially tailored to the requirements of small and medium-sized enterprises with one or more locations. “OpenScape Business offers small and medium-sized enterprises everything they need for their individual and diverse communication requirements, unified in a single flexible and scalable solution,” Khan said.
He added, “Under the promotion, channel partners will be able to offer their customers an OpenScape Business solution (hardware and software) at a low cost using Unify’s pay-as-you-go (PAYG-OPEX) monthly payment offer. This enables partners to own the system from day one at a very low entry cost or a permanent CAPEX model at very competitive prices”.
In addition, all software licences will be available under Unify’s PAYG cloud offering and shall be charged on monthly subscription packages. The bundles for the IP offerings will be offered for 8, 16, 24 and 48 user packages along with three years of software support under each package.
