SYDNEY, Aug. 26, 2013 – ShoreTel® (NASDAQ: SHOR), the leading provider of brilliantly simple unified communications platforms, including business phone systems, applications, and mobile UC solutions, today announced Go Systems has won two new UC customers just 12 weeks after signing as an Authorised ShoreTel Partner.
ShoreTel appointed Go Systems as a perfect fit for its reseller channel given its six year history winning Unified Communications deals across Australia. From the time of signing to becoming ShoreTel trained and certified, Go Systems has successfully won UC roll-outs with Cunninghams Real Estate, one of Sydney's largest independent property managers, and Lockley Land Titles, a leading Sydney surveying company.
“The number one reason we chose to work with ShoreTel is the simplicity of its market offering - we now only need to focus on a single product across all business sizes,” said Robert Ek, director at Go Systems. “Compared to the competition, ShoreTel has just one modular architecture and software design that can scale seamlessly from several users to many thousands – no hardware change required. This makes it simple for us to recommend, sell and implement ShoreTel’s UC solution.”
“In a matter of weeks, it was ‘all-systems-go’ for our sales and technical teams to start winning business across all sectors and all business sizes,” added Ek. “We were easily able to articulate the value of the ShoreTel solution to Cunninghams Property who chose the ShoreTel UC platform based on the ease-of-integration with its existing third party applications including Outlook and Agent Box. Lockley Land Titles selected the ShoreTel SBE bundle as a complete, out-of-the-box unified communications solution giving them enterprise-class functionality at a price-tag that meets their requirements today. Both new implementations took place at the end of June.”
Ek continued, “The on-boarding process with ShoreTel was a breeze and included a combination of personalised demonstration sessions with the ShoreTel Partner Development Specialist plus instructor lead and self-paced, web-based training. We have a dedicated ShoreTel Area Sales Manager to continue to support us day-to-day but the goal is to become self-sufficient utilizing our industry expertise to continue to win and maintain business.”
“ShoreTel will continue to work closely with Go Systems to leverage its expertise and commitment to the Unified Communications, contact centre and mobility markets,” said Jamie Romanin, managing director of ShoreTel ANZ. “Go Systems has demonstrated its capabilities through an end-to-end approach to servicing Australian customers and we look forward to enhancing this relationship further. ShoreTel is winning deals against the competition in Australia and we will continue to create market opportunities through close associations with our channel partners and customers in the ANZ market.”
