"InTouch is a complementary fit to our Unity Systems portfolio and will be easy to order alongside our other vendor products, through our custom-designed and built online configuration tool,” said Nick Verykios, Managing Director, Distribution Central.

"Our system automatically shows which add-on products are compatible and makes it simple and efficient for partners to order the right add-on software all on the same quote. We’re offering a complete solution of unified communications with the applications.”
