Woburn, Mass. (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
snom technology AG, a leading developer of IP desktop phones and IP communications solutions, announced today its snom Americas Gold and Platinum Partners for 2013. Novus, LLC once again attained the coveted Platinum Partner status, and ABP International, Inc., and TeleDynamics, LLP were named Gold Partners for the second year. Gold and Platinum partner status is awarded to recognize strong sales of snom products, as well as high levels of support provided by partners to snom customers throughout 2012.
Novus, LLC is one of only eight distributors worldwide to achieve Platinum Partner status and the only in North America. ABP International and TeleDynamics are two of only seven Gold Partner awards bestowed upon organizations across the globe. The distributors will enjoy a number of benefits resulting from their continued status as Platinum and Gold Partners, including additional channel advertising support. Platinum Partner activities will include joint marketing campaigns, additional sales activity and inclusion in the snom Certified Engineer program.
“We award Platinum and Gold partner status to recognize the hard work our partners contribute in pushing our products through their sales channels,” said Dr. Michael Knieling, executive director of snom technology AG. “All of our Platinum and Gold partners had a successful year selling snom’s products, and we appreciate the opportunity to thank and reward them through our Partner Program. But these status designations aren’t based on sales alone. These distributors also offer excellent customer support and display a thorough knowledge of the snom product portfolio. They routinely go above-and-beyond simply selling our products.”
snom has three levels of distributors – Platinum, Gold and Official – in its Partner Program, a comprehensive indirect channel sales program designed to broaden snom’s global sales coverage and drive sales of its portfolio of advanced IP business phones. The program is anchored by snom’s distributor partners, who provide mission-critical, on-the-ground sales support and distribution of snom products to snom Certified VAR partners – a growing network of highly-trained telecom resellers and interconnect, IT services and managed IT service providers in the Americas.
