Ingram Micro NZ takes the gold for Yealink distribution

06 Jul 2018

Ingram Micro New Zealand has been awarded the distinction of ‘gold distribution partner’ by unified communications (UC) equipment vendor Yealink.

Ingram attributes some of the continued growth in sales across the full Yealink portfolio of IP handsets and video conferencing solutions to Ingram Micro’s investment in training and certification.

In the NZ market, Yealink is a popular choice for ISP’s, Cloud providers and UC platforms like 8x8, Mitel, BlueJeans, Zoom and more. 

The company has global strategic relationships with 3CX, Microsoft & Broadsoft and locally, Spark have chosen to use Yealink on their new cloud-based collaboration solution - Cloud Phone.

The NZ market has been quick to adopt Yealink’s fully certified Skype for Business range of phones and conference units.

Later this year, it will be releasing Teams certified handsets, which will allow Yealink to expand further into the growing number of Microsoft-enabled Kiwi businesses.

Yealink sits within the Ingram Micro UC business unit that sells end-to-end UC solutions, working with resellers to provide the most relevant vendor’s solutions for each use-case.

“It is a great pleasure to be recognised by Yealink, one of our core Unified Communications vendors, achieving its Gold status for distributors,” says Ingram Micro Unified Communications business manager Danny Meadows.

“With a mix of hard work and a well-crafted channel engagement strategy Julie Holden and Craig Stewart who look after Yealink as part of the wider IMUC team have done a fantastic job of representing Yealink in the New Zealand UC channel.

“This result further highlights the IM UC business unit's commitment to providing the best possible representation for each of our vendors in the market and in doing so enabling the UC channel partners to provide exceptional business communication solutions.”
