Avaya, the structured connectivity solutions com-pany, has

launched its SYSTI-MAX First program in the country. Under this initiative, the

company will identify key SI partners, whom it further plans to accredit as

Authorized Business Partners (ABPs) and prestige business partners (PBPs). The

company recently accredited Mumbai-based Sigma-Byte Computers as its PBP and is

looking at engaging nearly 60 to 70 partners under this program.

"The business partners will have to meet stringent

criteria and would get some of their staff trained as certified SYSTIMAX

engineers. And, in order to further get recognized as a PBP, the partner will

have to successfully deploy a number of Avaya connectivity solu-tions,"

informed, Prasanna Kumar V, Sales Director- India and SAARC, Avaya India.

According to him, SI partners should seriously consider

connectivity solutions as a ‘window of opportunity’ thro-ugh which they can

offer other business propositions too to their customers.

The company is also looking at various strategic programs

like roadshows, seminars and campaigning to address the market in B and C-class

cities. "We are also trying to get more aggressive on the business in

government sector," added Prasanna.
