Aastra reaches out to HP ProCurve resellers
Communications vendor offers ‘fast-track’ way to sell its solutions in the Middle East
Enterprise communications vendor Aastra has rolled out a new partner programme which is customised for HP resellers carrying the ProCurve networking portfolio in the Middle East and North Africa.
Aastra is a founding member of the HP ProCurve Open Network Ecosystem (ONE) Alliance and as a result offers its MX-ONE Communications Manager on the HP ProCurve Services zl module.
The launch of the Astra ONE Partner Programme is therefore designed to help resellers make the most of the pair's technology collaboration.
"In order to make it easy for HP resellers to take advantage of this alliance and be able to offer Aastra's MX-ONE IP telephony solution and related unified communications applications, we have created this special partner programme," said Dr. Roger Hage, VP business development at Aastra.
Hage says the programme will fast-track new partners, allowing them to start quoting Aastra IP telephony solutions as soon as the pre-qualification form that they fill out is accepted.
"The certification process runs in parallel and Aastra guarantees via its value-added distributors that the stringent quality requirements for installation and support are met at all times," he explained.
