Flexnet advances to ShoreTel gold partner status

09 Feb 16

Flexnet has officially advanced to Gold status in the ShoreTel Champion Partner Program, following the decision to focus exclusively on the partnership.

Based in Victoria and established in 2001, Flexnet provides Australian businesses with unified communication solutions. Throughout 2015 Flexnet re-engineered its business to focus exclusively on its partnership with ShoreTel, a strategy that has seen 34% year-on-year growth for the company.

In Partner Year 15, ending October 2015, Flexnet achieved strong ShoreTel Unified Communications (UC) sales and implementations, winning UC deployments in the Victorian local government sector as well as several large enterprise deals including Glen Eira and  Brimbank.

Frederic Gillant, ShoreTel Asia Pacific vice president, says, “Flexnet has always been a tech-savvy, ShoreTel certified partner in the Australian marketplace.

“This partner has demonstrated its commitment to ShoreTel through solid results in the local government and enterprise sectors and it is with great pride that we congratulate Flexnet on achieving Gold status,” he says.

Mark Churchward, Flexnet director, says, “Flexnet is honoured to achieve Gold status in the ShoreTel Champion Partner Program. We have expanded our team in Victoria and increased our ShoreTel certification levels to ensure we are providing our existing and prospective customers with the very best skills around the award-winning ShoreTel UC solution."

“Our team is going from strength-to-strength in the council vertical, and larger enterprises are now turning to us to advise and manage their UC requirements. The timing is ideal for us to capitalise on our success with ShoreTel," he says.

ShoreTel designed the Champion Partner Program to strengthen the relationship between ShoreTel and its partners. The program’s goal is to advance and grow both companies’ market share in the unified communications industry, while ensuring every customer continues to be delighted with their ShoreTel experience.
