Before joining Evolve IP I spent 24 years as a Mitel partner and always thought they were one of the best handset providers in the telecom business. Now, as leader of Evolve IP’s Private Label Program, it made sense for me to contact the Mitel Dealers I knew and help them position their businesses to take advantage of the growing Cloud opportunities.
The goal of the outreach was not geared at getting the partners to leave their Mitel on-premise business, but instead to add a robust UCaaS solution to their portfolio so they were in a better position to answer the requests from changing end-user needs.
As we had conversations with Mitel Partners, it was evident that they would prefer to utilize Mitel phones on our Broadsoft platform. This would help the partners meet their obligations to Mitel and reduce the training time since their employees already know the advantages of the Mitel handsets.
With this in mind we developed a joint interoperability initiative r to certify the MiVoice 5320e, 5330e, 5340e and 5360 IP telephones on the Evolve IP platform. The teams worked together effectively the last few months and recently certified the above mentioned Mitel handsets.
We believe this is a huge win for Mitel, Evolve IP and Mitel Partners. Evolve IP is a leader in the deployment of UCaaS solutions with over 50,000 seats installed. Mitel Partners with our UCaaS solution and the Mitel handsets now have another option to sell into their markets.
As a partner with Evolve IP, they will also get the full support of the Evolve IP sales, project management and support teams which will accelerate their knowledge of cloud solutions and also help them win more business.
