Blue Door Networks, a global communications and IT company, recently announced that it has joined the ShoreTel (News - Alert) Champion Partner Program as a value-added Authorized Champion Partner. In its new position, Blue Door Networks will sell and deliver ShoreTel’s Unified Communication solutions. ShoreTel is a provider of easy to use IP phone systems with fully integrated unified communications (UC).

The ShoreTel Champion Partner Program has been developed by the company to consolidate and strengthen its relationships with its partners. The program specifically focuses on expanding the company and its partners reach and standing within the UC industry while also ensuring that customers are provided with an enhanced ShoreTel experience.

In a release, Tom Hamilton, senior director of Worldwide Channel Marketing at ShoreTel, said that, “We’re pleased to welcome value-added partners into the Champion Partner Program – especially those that have a commitment to sales and technical training, infrastructure development and focus on customer service in delivering our innovative products and leading business solutions. In this case, we are encouraged by Blue Door Networks’ commitment to value-add solution sales and delivery of ShoreTel Unified Communications (News - Alert) systems.”

Blue Door Networks has been delivering world-class technology solutions to the Enterprise since it was founded in 2011. The company views itself within the telecommunications industry not so much as a “reseller” but more as a provider of technology solutions. This is what provided the company with an extensive understanding of challenges and requirements within the technologies market.

The Blue Door Networks portfolio of offerings includes solutions for unified communications (UC) and data networks, for network security, and cloud computing, managed services, mobility integration, in addition to session delivery networks, and virtualization. The company also offers customers an extensive range of support services which includes IT consulting services, implementation, network management and optimization support, and maintenance and technical support.

Frank Carlucci, president and CEO of Blue Door Networks, said that, “We are pleased to be an Authorized Champion Partner with ShoreTel. Leveraging ShoreTel’s Unified Communications (UC) capabilities allow Blue Door Networks to enhance its business value to enterprises.”

In related news from December 2011, NetVersant Solutions, a provider of network infrastructure and converged applications solutions, is now a new Authorized Champion Partner of ShoreTel.
