Unify Expands Availability of Circuit via Strategic Distributor NTS Direct
Boca Raton, Fla. — Nov. 8, 2016: Unify, the Atos brand for communications software and services, today announced that in response to channel partner feedback, it has developed a two-tier cloud resale model in North America. Unify’s valued distributor, NTS Direct, a wholly owned subsidiary of Paragon Communications, will integrate Circuit, Unify’s leading Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, into their existing Unify offerings.
“NTS is excited to be the first to provide this pure cloud offering from Unify to the North American market in this manner,” said NTS Direct President Ammar Rezek. “This model will allow partner resellers to maintain the customer relationship including end customer contracts, but will eliminate the requirement for billing, stocking and management of licenses.”
As a value-added distributor for Unify, NTS is bridging the gap by offering these transparent services on behalf of resellers. Delivering Circuit via NTS provides resellers with a shorter sales cycle along with the opportunity for incremental revenue, all while focusing on their core competencies.
Unify’s groundbreaking Circuit platform revolutionizes mobile collaboration and communication, bringing together high-quality voice, video, chat, real-time document editing and management, and file sharing into a single view, across an entire team. Circuit delivers agile workplace technology to meet the demands of various organizations and professionals, thereby empowering them to streamline communication, make faster decisions, bolster team collaboration and drive better results. Most recently Unify and Circuit have been rated as leaders by Aragon Research’s Tech Spectrum for Mobile Collaboration.
“The market for cloud-based collaboration solutions continues to grow as customers demand increased flexibility and scalability, and Circuit is perfectly positioned to deliver superior team collaboration in a cloud model,” said Colin McLean, Senior Vice President of Sales, North America, for Unify. “We are fortunate to have a strong business partner in NTS that recognizes this demand and will work vigorously with us to deliver the solution to the market.”
