Convergence and Unified Communications specialist 5i, is recruiting new resellers, systems integrators, facilities management and outsourcing/managed services businesses to its ‘Be Ingenious’ Partner Programme. 5i is keen to select up to 15 new partners in the next six months, teaming up to make new opportunities possible and generate lucrative incremental revenues.
5i is offering pre and post sales support, and the benefit of extensive knowledge and skills transfers based on its record as a convergence pioneer, as well as top convergence accreditations from Microsoft and Cisco.
“Vendors have created enormous excitement and demand for enterprise convergence solutions, with the focus now on Unified Communications. But whether they are accredited by Microsoft, Cisco or anyone else for that matter, IT resellers that don’t have their own very advanced voice or convergence expertise are encountering opportunities they can’t properly fulfil,” said Peter Howells, Managing Director of 5i. “Our proposition isn’t just about fixing holes - we’re working hand-in-hand with the channel to open up new opportunities and help convert them into long term reoccurring revenues.”
"IP telephony and SIP are now widely accepted. The connectivity has become more affordable and businesses are moving key services to the cloud. We see a majority of new RFPs requesting hosted."
