Mitel Recognizes Top Partners at 2016 Mitel Elite Experience
Mitel (News - Alert) is a global leader in real-time business, cloud and mobile communications that has been especially busy this month. Even still, the company took the time last week at the 2016 Mitel Elite Experience partner event on April 20 to recognize its top performing channel partners.
At a special awards ceremony held during the event, partners from across the United States and Canada, as well as from the Caribbean and Latin America (CALA) region, gathered to celebrate Mitel’s largest partners. In particular, the event highlighted these partners’ efforts in driving business across the Mitel solutions portfolio throughout the Americas region.
Awards included achievements in top overall performance, as well as success in specific categories like the cloud, contact center and vertical markets.
This year’s Mitel Elite Experience partner event came during a period of major change for Mitel. Earlier in the month, the company acquired Polycom (News - Alert) to create a new UC industry giant, following weeks of rumors. This move follows a series of strategic acquisitions, all of which have allowed Mitel to help its customers operate more efficiently and cost effectively.
Also this month, Mitel rolled out a series of updates to a number of its key offerings in order to better meet the needs of today’s workforce. For example, Mitel’s MiContact Center has been updated to be a mobile-first customer engagement platform that delivers the agility necessary to stay ahead of today’s communication trends.
“These awards are a reflection of the channels’ commitment to deliver only the best communications solutions to their customers throughout the year,” said Rich McBee (News - Alert), CEO of Mitel. “The success of Mitel is tightly tied to the success of our channel partners who represent our brand and our portfolio in the marketplace.”
Mitel’s top partners for this year include Frontier Communications, which took home the Partner of the Year 2015 award, as well as Top Overall Revenue Partner 2015, Top Premise Revenue Partner 2015, and Top Wholesale Cloud Bookings Partner 2015. The Partner of the Year 2015 for Canada is Zayo, while Cimcorp took home the award for the CALA region.
