VExpress inks Aussie distie deal with Konference for audio conferencing solutions

05 Jul 2018

Sydney-based distributor of Telecommunication, data and mobility solutions VExpress Distribution has announced a new agreement with Konference, an authorised supplier of Konftel audio conferencing equipment.

The deal will see VExpress distribute Konference supplied Konftel audio products to its partners throughout the Australian market, which include its offering of audio conference phones.

VExpress general manager David McEwen says, “VExpress is very excited to be given the privilege to distribute Konftel products throughout Australia with Konference.

“Konftel products are known for their high quality and ease of use, optimising and certifying their products with most major UC platforms including Avaya, Alcatel, Cisco, Broadsoft, Huawei and NEC to name a few.”

Konference general manager Adrian Chu says the deal will allow his company to benefit from VExpress’ expertise and industry knowledge as well as their relationship with their partner community.

“This partnership will further strengthen the Konftel brand name in the market and ultimately reach more customers who want a great audio conferencing experience,” Chu says.

“(It) just makes sense for us as we prepare for what looks like a busy year ahead. Konftel will be launching their first-ever range of collaboration solutions of audio and video endpoints soon so this is great timing for us.

“These packages are affordable, easy to setup and handle and are compatible with a range of cloud-based collaboration tools, including Skype for Business, Zoom or any other service,” Chu concludes.

Both VExpress and Konference says they look forward to a prosperous relationship that will see their channel partners connected with value-added services across sales, marketing and technical support and logistics, stock availability, marketing support and a locally-based support team.

“VExpress will continue to bring on vendor relationships that make sense to our customers (the reseller) and add value to existing vendor relationships,” McEwen adds.

“Our goal is to ensure that we remain relevant to our customers and provide products and solutions that add value i.e. 1 + 1 = 3.”
