The Avaya PartnerConnect 2014 will host meeting of more than 600 partners across three cities in India – Mumbai, Gurgaon and Bangalore. Before coming to India, PartnerConnect visited the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Kenya and South Africa attracting the attendance of more than 1500 business partners. The channel roadshow is focused on helping partners to identify and fulfil tangible market opportunities especially in the region’s rapidly growing midmarket segment. PartnerConnect will address opportunities across the Networking, Unified Communications and Customer Experience Management solutions areas.
Avaya is laser focused on growing its midmarket solutions base in India. “The New Avaya Is All About Growth” is Avaya’s theme at this year’s conference, and participating partners will explore how, together with Avaya, they can deliver increased efficiency and competitive advantage to their customers.
The Avaya Connect partner programme is evolving to reflect changing channel dynamics and ensure that Avaya partners in India are equipped to deliver the most compelling solution sets to their customers. This will include the launch of a special iConnect program specifically designed to support channel partners who focus on the midmarket space, enabling participating partners to ramp their business rapidly.
During PartnerConnect 2014, senior Avaya executives, including Nidal Abou-Ltaif, President, Global Growth Markets, will discuss how partners can capitalize on Avaya’s solutions to grow market share within the region’s hotels, banks, telecoms operators, BPO organizations, government entities, as well as the rapidly growing midmarket segment.
Avaya will also take the opportunity at the PartnerConnect events to announce recipients of the Avaya Business Partner Awards, which recognize channel partners for market growth and achievements during 2013. The Avaya PartnerConnect series in India is sponsored by Redington, Beetel, Jabra, Protocol Systems, LG and Teleapps.
“Avaya’s partners are focused on acquiring specific skills sets to help them deliver better service to their customers, including the ability to enhance customer care, move toward cloud adoption, and increase collaboration across regional offices. The PartnerConnect events provide a platform to focus on those specific customer needs, and ensure partners are fully equipped to deliver,” said Hrishikesh Parthasarathy, Director – Channels & Strategic Partnerships, Avaya India & SAARC,
