Video: Ingram’s inaugural UC soiree brings partners together

23 Feb 18

Last night Ingram Micro NZ held their first unified communications (UC) networking event with the sponsor, Jabra, showing off its latest products.

Held at Bungalow 8 on Auckland’s waterfront, the event invited certain partners in the UC ecosystem to meet and greet, and even get the chance to win some of Jabra’s pro-sumer headset offerings.

The event was also attended by representatives from direct competitors with Jabra, highlighting Ingram NZ’s changing approach to distribution, which focuses on a solution-based approach to partner and end-user needs, rather than ‘box-dropping’.

This approach encourages vendors to work with Ingram NZ and its partners to ensure that the solutions they are offering cover all bases, aiming for more mutually beneficial deals.

Further events will be held in March, April and May with different UC sponsors each month.

Check out the video below to see some familiar faces from the event.
