Sabio, the leading customer contact technology specialist, has won WestconGroup’s 2015 UK & Ireland Growth partner award following an impressive 40% growth in sales of Avaya Unified Communications and Collaboration Solutions through WestconGroup distribution. Sabio received the award at WestconGroup’s recent ENGAGE2015 partner technology summit.
WestconGroup is Avaya’s number one distributor across EMEA. This latest award builds on Sabio’s success last year, when the company was recognised for exceptional sales performance based on business won during WestconGroup’s 2013-2014 financial year.
“Over the last two years, Sabio has grown its provision of Avaya solutions through Westcon distribution by an impressive 88%, while at the same time continuing to innovate – particularly in key sectors such as the midmarket,” commented Garry Boon, General Manager for WestconGroup UK Unified Communication and Collaboration Solutions.
“Sabio’s success is a result not only of strong growth in its Avaya enterprise business, but also through a commitment to innovation – with sales of its impressive Sabio OnDemand hosted solution based on Avaya’s midmarket portfolio already achieving sales of over $1m in just six months since bringing their new product to market.”
“It’s great for Sabio to be recognised as WestconGroup’s 2015 UK & Ireland Growth Partner, with our 2014-15 growth of 40% building on last year’s impressive 48% figure – almost doubling our Avaya distribution business over the last 24 months,” added Sabio Director Andy Roberts.
“This award also recognises Sabio’s commitment to growing not just our traditional Avaya enterprise business, but also innovating in the midmarket sector, where we were able to design, build and bring to market our hosted Avaya-based Sabio OnDemand solution in under six months. We look forward to building on this success with WestconGroup, as we target further growth from our long-established Avaya relationship.”
With its Sabio OnDemand powered by Avaya offering, Sabio is appealing directly to the growing number of midmarket organisations that demand all the benefits and performance of an Avaya Customer Engagement Solution, but also require the flexibility of a cloud-enabled approach that’s backed by a proven Avaya specialist. Sabio OnDemand combines core IP Office and Avaya Contact Centre Select technologies to support up to 250 agents with the kind of rich multi-channel contact centre functionality that today’s customer engagement programmes increasingly demand.
