UCaaS Offering Targets Mid-market Customers
May 4, 2016, Avon, Ohio – Jenne, Inc., a leading value added distributor of technology products and solutions focusing on voice, video, data networking, premise security and the cloud, is partnering with Avaya to bring a new Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) solution to its value-added resellers. This solution, OnAvaya™, is hosted by Google Cloud Platform. The solution will be marketed through Jenne’s reseller customers to their end-user customers.
OnAvaya, a turnkey cloud solution, allows small and mid-market businesses to leverage the full capabilities of Avaya IP Office™ and IP Office™ Contact Center through a monthly subscription model. Businesses benefit by moving from a traditional capital expenditure (CapEx) model to an operating expense (OpEx) model. The businesses’ customers benefit from having the same communication abilities and speed whether they are in the office, on the road, or working from home.
Benefits to Jenne Avaya Partners, who offer the OnAvaya solution, include enhanced revenue streams and margins with minimal additional investment, as well as new opportunities to up-sell and cross-sell to their customers. Partners also will benefit from the numerous value adds that Jenne provides its customers, including pre- and post- sales support, quoting assistance, dedicated sales support, training and education and more.
“As the market for cloud-based solutions grows, channel partners like Jenne are embracing the opportunity to help customers navigate the deployment options for communications applications that can help their businesses operate at peak performance. With the Jenne OnAvaya offer, customers will have industry-leading unified communications solution in a highly flexible, usage-based model,” said Joe Lohmeier, vice president, Global Channel Organization, Avaya.
“We are excited to bring this new solution to our Jenne Partners, who have expressed a very strong interest to Jenne in adding cloud solutions to their product offerings,” said John Kruszka, director of Avaya solutions at Jenne, Inc. “OnAvaya will increase opportunities and revenues while improving service for their customers and delivering Avaya’s industry-leading solutions.”
