ShoreTel signs Malaysian resellers

08 Jun 10

ShoreTel has appointed two Malaysian resellers, Comegatel and IT Apps, in a move that the company says marks a new strategy to offer an all-in-one UC solution.

"As a growing number of businesses in Malaysia turn to unified communications for the efficiency and productivity gains achievable with this technology, ShoreTel is confident our brilliantly simple solutions will rapidly become a top choice for businesses throughout the region,” said Donald Girskis, senior vice president of worldwide sales at ShoreTel.

“Our powerful and highly reliable UC system is ideally suited for businesses that need modern communications capabilities at a low total cost of ownership, and we're looking forward to meeting these needs and satisfying the growing demand."

Both newly appointed resellers have an established presence in the Malaysian market, and have already seen some customer interest locally, says ShoreTel.

Vasili Triant, ShoreTel Managing Director for Asia Pacific said, “Around the world, an increasing number of organisations are walking away from complexity and inflexibility, and turning to ShoreTel for IP-based communication solutions that easily fit within an existing infrastructure, and can be trusted to work seamlessly with other business applications and processes. Our IP-based business communication solutions were designed for the IP age to help eliminate complexity, and easily serve the geographical needs of countries like Malaysia, as well as organisations with offices throughout Southeast Asia.”

ShoreTel recently announced its Lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Program, a first-of-its-kind initiative, the company says, that guarantees the lowest TCO for new ShoreTel customers. The tool uses independent third-party data to compare vendor costs over a five year ownership period.
