Westcon-Comstor and Snom agree distribution partnership

Westcon-Comstor, a value-added distributor of category-leading unified communications, network infrastructure, data centre and security solutions with a global network of specialty resellers, announced its convergence business practice has signed a new distribution agreement with Snom Technology GmbH to distribute their full product portfolio across Africa, excluding South Africa.

Snom's portfolio of cutting-edge SIP-based telephony devices are recognised for their rugged commercial grade performance, reliability and ease of interoperability which has made them the VoIP handset partner of choice for the industry's leading VoIP service providers, hosted VoIP, IP PBX and Unified Communications solution vendors.

Snom Technology, the leading manufacturer of business IP phones, announced that it has awarded Westcon the distribution agreement for Africa. From a Westcon Africa stand point it is what coverage we hold as a distributor in Africa and our partner database which covers all the regions. We also have dedicated personnel to work with the vendor on this product.  The partnership will ensure that resellers, service providers and enterprise customers in Africa have the best possible access to the full Snom product portfolio.

Rabia Mohamed, Africa Business Development Manager, Westcon comments, “SNOM have awarded Westcon the Distribution agreement due to coverage, customer support, product knowledge, offerings in the market and highly qualified technical team to work with the vendor on this product.”

SNOM products target the SME market which is currently growing very fast and the product pricing is well suited to cover this region.

Snom’s International Channel Manager, Julie Cartier, sees many mutual benefits in the distribution agreement: "Westcon Africa is ideally suited to distribute Snom products to our customers in Africa. Not only do they have excellent experience and understanding of local markets, but they also have excellent knowledge of Snom products and the best distribution networks and infrastructure to ensure that any logistical challenges can be easily overcome.”

The Snom full product portfolio is available immediately through Westcon UCC/Mobility. To learn more about Westcon's Snom and UCC solutions please visit http://africa.westcon.com/content/vendors/snom.
