Asnet Technologies has also been appointed as Polycom's platinum reseller in New Zealand.
The appointment is the first stage of Polycom’s 2010 plan to strengthen its presence in New Zealand, and is part of an ongoing regional expansion strategy, the company has said.
Asnet Technologies has been appointed as Polycom’s inaugural Platinum reseller in New Zealand.
Michael Chetner, Polycom’s Country Manager for Australia and New Zealand, said, “High definition video solutions will proliferate across corporate and small to medium businesses within a few years, and New Zealanders have historically been early adopters of these technologies.”
He added, “The appointment of Datastor, with its strong background in Unified Communications, and its shared partnerships with members of the Polycom Open Collaboration Network, will help to drive Polycom’s continued growth in New Zealand. Importantly, Datastor actively supports Polycom’s open standards-based solutions approach that gives users easy access to powerful, productivity-enhancing UC tools, without having to ‘rip-and-replace’ their existing IT investments.”
Polycom’s former New Zealand distributor and reseller, Asnet Technologies, a Polycom channel partner for more than 12 years, will become the first Polycom Platinum reseller in New Zealand from 1 July 2010.
