Jabra signs with Distribution Central

22 May 12

Headset & speakerphone vendor Jabra has signed an ANZ distribution deal with Unity Systems, the Unified Communications (UC) unit of Distribution Central.

The deal, effective immediately, is the second this month for Unity Systems, which earlier picked up Logitech videoconferencing sub-brand LifeSize.

Jabra has recently undergone a major brand reinvention – spearheaded by new brand slogan, ‘Jabra – You’re On’ – as well as relocating to new headquarters in North Sydney and implementing a new channel program.

According to the Jabra website, the brand has New Zealand distribution deals with 24/7 Distribution and Westcon, although this may be out of date as the latter is still listed as Datastor. We’ve reached out for comment and will post an update when we hear back. 

Update: The Jabra team have confirmed that the deals with 24/7 Distribution and Westcon are both still current. The company also has a reseller deal with Cackle Communications.
