Avnet Technology Solutions To Provide Technical Support Services For Polycom RealPresence Solutions In The U.S. And Canada

Avnet Technology Solutions, the global IT solutions distribution leader and an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), announced today that it has received the Polycom ® RealPresence ® Services Specialization (RPSS) designation and will now offer technical assistance center services. Polycom is a global leader in open, standards-based unified communication and collaboration. The technical assistance center services are available to channel partners in the U.S. and Canada through Avnet Services. Avnet’s RPSS designation will enable partners to provide value-added technical assistance center services for their unified communications customers without needing to develop these capabilities in house.

“Technical support is a critical component of any unified communications customer engagement because the solutions are so broadly used throughout organizations,” said Scott Delaney, vice president of business development, Avnet Services. “A fully-staffed technical assistance center is a resource-intensive proposition for solution providers, which is why Avnet invested in creating a cost-effective alternative for our partners. They can rely on Avnet Services to provide their customers with expert technical support, empowering solution providers to concentrate on further growing their businesses and sales.”

Avnet partners will be able to offer their customers access to world-class support. The Avnet technical assistance center will provide Level 1 and Level 2 support from Avnet’s Polycom Video Conferencing Engineers (PCVE) certified technicians. These experts can assist with technical support and failure determination, and will be able to access a working lab to help with issues resolution.

“We are committed to providing our customers with technology that exceeds their expectations, and technical support can greatly enhance their experiences with the solutions we’ve implemented,” said Alicia Heaton, director for software sales at Meridian IT Inc., a technology solutions provider and Avnet partner. “Avnet’s scale, scope and technical expertise make it an ideal resource to provide technical assistance center services. We know Avnet has the process-oriented approach that will ensure support issues are resolved quickly and efficiently.”
