West is pleased to announce that it has launched a new channel partner program for its enterprise solutions. We’ve been dedicated to supplying innovative 9-1-1 solutions for carriers, public safety and enterprises for more than 35 years. By introducing this new program, resellers can work with West and position themselves as full-service Unified Communications (UC) advisors by including 9-1-1 solutions with their voice offerings.
Certified in the labs and proven in the field, our solutions are compatible with today’s leading UC vendors. This broad base of support allows resellers to implement a single 9-1-1 solution in even the most complex environments, rather than supporting a patchwork of different solutions with varying capabilities. As more states sign 9-1-1 legislation into law, if 9-1-1 isn’t already top-of-mind for resellers and their customers, it will be.
When you design UC solutions for your customers, including 9-1-1 as a standard solution component isn’t just smart business sense – it’s the right thing to do.
9-1-1 is critical for enterprise safety, and is as essential to a UC deployment as the handsets and soft clients being deployed. By including 9-1-1 as part of your offering, you are:
- Providing your client with a complete solution.
- Helping your customers meet the 9-1-1 regulatory requirements to which they may be subject.
- Being proactive about their safety needs.
- Helping your customers avoid liability risks.
- Demonstrating to clients that you are a telecom expert and their trusted advisor.
