Aussie ALE champion resellers hit Phuket

24 Feb 16

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise resellers reaped the rewards of their hard work last week, with eight Australian resellers heading to Phuket as winners in the vendor’s SMB Champions League.

The SMB Champions League was launched last year and recognises independent resellers who are performing ‘exceptionally’.

The program recognises partners under two categories – biggest achievers and fastest achievers – for their overall business performance in driving sales for the Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch Suite for SMB.

Telstra Business Centre Adelaide North, Advanced Communications Riverina, Harris Solutions, Intelligent Telephony and Telstra Business Centre Milton were Australian winners achieving highest revenue, with Telequip, Advanced Voice Systems and Unified Business Communications Group winning for fastest growth.

The top partners in each category had the chance to win quarterly rewards, with the ultimate award being a fully-paid trip to Phuket.

Thirty winners, including eight from Australia, headed to Thailand to partake of their reward, with winners treated to ‘amazing’ dinners, and tours including a Siam Safari, city and island tours.
