Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers need strategic alliances with technology services distributors to extend their reach into new markets and to deliver the best communications solutions to end-user customers across the world. Mitel, a global leader in cloud business communications, understands the importance of partnering with master agents to extend their reach. Given this, the company recently announced a partnership with Intelisys, a leading technology services distributor and master agent for telecom, cloud, and carrier services.
Through the partnership, Mitel will provide Intelisys Sales Partners with access to their comprehensive cloud communications portfolio. This powerful, scalable cloud family of platforms delivers hosted voice, unified communications, and collaboration solutions to small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and large enterprises. And now, it will be available to the Intelisys network in the UK and North America.

Mitel was chosen as a supplier partner based on demand from the Intelisys Sales Partner community. Andrew Pryfogle, SVP Cloud Transformation at Intelisys, had this to say about Mitel’s reliable and flexible cloud-based communications portfolio:
“Our Sales Partners are seeing a significant uptick in demand for cloud, and UCaaS is a great opener with their customers,” said Pryfogle. “With Mitel’s cloud communications portfolio, they can now offer their customers a solution that ensures the highest levels of performance, reliability, and security with new, innovative team collaboration applications,” he added.
