Woburn, MA (PRWEB) January 16, 2012
snom technology AG, a leading developer of IP desktop phones and IP communications solutions, today announced that Alloy Computer Products has been named a Platinum Partner under snom’s Gold and Platinum Partners Program for 2012. Gold or Platinum partner status is awarded in recognition of strong sales of snom products, as well as the high levels of support international partners have provided to their snom customers throughout 2011.
Alloy is one of only nine distributors worldwide that have been awarded Platinum Partner status and the only one in Oceania. Platinum status under the snom Partner Program brings with it a number of partner benefits, including additional channel advertising support, participation in joint marketing campaigns, additional sales activity and inclusion in the snom Certified Engineer program.
“Platinum Partner status is awarded in recognition of the hard work our partners have been doing pushing our products through their sales channels,” explains Dr. Michael Knieling, executive director at snom technology AG. “All of our Platinum and Gold partners have had a very successful year selling snom’s products, and it is great that we are able to recognize this by awarding them Platinum and Gold Partner status. However, this is not just based on sales, but also the fact that these distributors have displayed fantastic customer support and knowledge of the snom product portfolio. These distributors have gone above and beyond simply selling our products.”
snom has three levels of distributors – platinum, gold and official – as part of its Partner Program, a comprehensive indirect channel sales program designed to broaden snom’s global sales coverage and drive sales for the company’s portfolio of advanced IP business phones. The program is anchored by snom’s distributor partners who provide the mission critical, on the ground sales support and distribution for snom’s products to snom Certified VAR partners, its growing network of highly trained telecom resellers, interconnect, IT services and managed IT service providers worldwide.

"We believe 2012 will be another exciting year for the local snom channels".
