Siemens links up with SYNNEX

The offerings from Siemens Enterprise Communications Group will now be offerings from SYNNEX Corporation. The two firms revealed today that they had formed a business relationship which would allow the Siemens Enterprise Communications Group product offering to become offered through SYNNEX network of 15,000 resellers. Those Siemens products include business solutions for video, voice, data (VDV) and data security.

"Our agreement with SYNNEX underscores our dedication to the North American market and will significantly expand our ability to drive adoption of next generation UC technologies," said Michael Garland, senior vice president of North American alliances and channels for Siemens Enterprise Communications Group. "By making it easier and more profitable for our partners to distribute our solutions and giving them the support they need to succeed, we are also reinforcing our commitment to the channel. We understand that their success is our success."

The group of products is often referred to by Siemens as "unified communications" and is primarily focused on offerings like videoconferencing solutions, IT telephony, mobile communications, CRM offerings and data security solutions for sharing of information.
