LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Jan. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Windstream (Nasdaq:WIN), a leading provider of advanced network communications, announced today that it has received ShoreTel's Circle of Excellence Award for the 2013 partner year. The award recognizes Windstream for exceptional achievement in areas including customer satisfaction, revenue growth and proficiency with advanced applications. ShoreTel, Inc. is the leading provider of brilliantly simple phone systems and unified communications solutions.

"Windstream is proud to partner with ShoreTel in offering the latest unified communications solutions for the diverse business communication needs of our customers, continuing our promise of 'smart solutions, personalized service,'" said Matt Preschern, Windstream's senior vice president and enterprise chief marketing officer. "Windstream shares a common goal with ShoreTel—to deliver UC solutions that improve communication and collaboration, with superior levels of customer satisfaction, at a low cost of ownership."

As a ShoreTel partner, Windstream specializes in delivering ShoreTel's solutions portfolio, training and supporting end-user customers. This partnership allows Windstream to offer productivity-enhancing solutions, such as call center functionality and advanced mobility, while delivering cost-saving solutions that enable businesses of all sizes to connect with their customers.

"The Circle of Excellence is the highest award given by ShoreTel to its partners and we're very pleased to welcome Windstream into this elite group," said David Petts, senior vice president of worldwide sales at ShoreTel. "The Circle of Excellence Award is presented to ShoreTel's top global reseller partners, and each year, less than one-half of one percent of all partners earn this distinction. We're proud that Windstream surpassed the strict criteria required to earn Circle of Excellence status this year."
