ScanSource, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCSC), a leading provider of technology products and solutions, and Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE:AVYA), a global leader in solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration, today announced that ScanSource will be offering Avaya Cloud Office™ by RingCentral®, a work-from-anywhere cloud solution providing unified communications across voice, video, team messaging, file sharing and fax. As Avaya’s largest distributor globally, ScanSource and Intelisys enable partners’ acceleration to the cloud, while also supporting their premise-based hardware requirements.
ScanSource and Intelisys are uniquely positioned to help VARs and agents succeed in both their hardware and cloud practices. The addition of Avaya Cloud Office further strengthens ScanSource’s already-robust suite of cloud offerings, tools, resources, and expertise. Partners can tap into ScanSource’s comprehensive portfolio of hardware offerings and provisioning services, resulting in the creation of a seamless, turnkey communications solution. What’s more, partners in need of additional support and guidance in building a cloud practice can access Intelisys Cloud Services University and its full suite of training resources.
“ScanSource’s deep domain expertise in the Avaya portfolio and Intelisys’ support and expertise in the UCaaS market is a combination that sets a high standard, and one we believe will help all of our partners be successful,” said Mark Morgan, President of Intelisys, a ScanSource company. “With this, our partners can now sell a complete suite of Avaya solutions – as well as all of the connectivity – for whatever path their customer chooses, backed with our exceptional pre-sales, finance, solutions engineering and technical teams.”
“We have been a ScanSource partner for over 20 years and an Intelisys partner for more than two. The combination of ScanSource and Intelisys gives us one place to go for all of our needs for our customers. They truly are a reliable partner of ours,” said Tim McDermott, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Meridian IT. “Given where our world is right now, our customers are reaching out in earnest to understand how we can enable them to work remotely. Certainly UCaaS has been moving ahead, but today more than ever, the notion of not being tethered to your desk and moving technology into the cloud where it is accessible whenever and wherever you need it is becoming critical. I’m excited about this new offer from Avaya, as it will enable us to continue to provide innovative solutions to our customers.”
“Avaya Cloud Office provides our partners and customers a comprehensive yet simple communications solution that can be used through multiple channels and to collaborate around the world,” said Dennis Kozak, Avaya SVP, Business Transformation. “We are excited that ScanSource is now offering our new cloud solution through its extensive partner network.
