Landata to Deliver Mitel's Solutions in Russia, Eastern Europe
Mitel, a leading provider of Unified Communications (UC) software solutions, today announced that its solutions will now be distributed by Landata, a business division of Systematic-Group and a leading IT/Telco distributor in Russia. Landata will now sell Mitel’s solutions, including Freedom Architecture — an open model for UC based on a single, cloud-ready software stream, to clients across Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Eastern Europe.
“We're very excited to continue our growth in these important markets with Landata,” said Graham Bevington, vice president of International Markets at Mitel, in a statement. “Taking our Freedom architecture to Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe speaks to our recognition of the potential growth of these markets. Landata, with its far-reaching and sophisticated network of channel partners, is well situated to help Mitel expand our footprint in these burgeoning areas and reinforce our channel-centric strategy for growth.”
“This agreement brings together a suite of complementary products for businesses looking to unify communications across multiple platforms and locations, with a large, established network of resellers,” said Alex Volynsky, who heads up a newly established representative office in Moscow which sells and supports Mitel's portfolio under license, integrated with added-value applications from Wesley Clover International Corporation. “In addition, Landata resellers can work to achieve Mitel PARTNERprogram certification via access to Mitel sales and technical training, as well as benefiting from Mitel and Landata marketing programs.”
Vasiliy Selyuminov, executive director at Landata said about the announcement, “Landata prides itself on pioneering and delivering new solutions with a high level of expertise and professionalism. Our resellers and distribution network has been looking for a proven IP-based unified communications solution for some time, the Mitel portfolio allows us to offer them just that.”
In related news, Mitel recently released Mitel Communications Director (MCD) 5.0 software. MCD is the foundation of Mitel's Freedom architecture, giving organizations the ability to access an advanced set of communications applications through a single, cloud-ready software stream that can be readily deployed on industry standard servers, including virtualized server environments.
