Unify, one of the world’s leading communications software and services firms, has appointed Tarsus Distribution as its distributor for Southern Africa and, in line with its commitment to expanding its channel business in the region has established a local Unify Office in South Africa under the leadership of Bryan Thompson as country manager.
The company will partner with Tarsus Distribution to develop brand awareness and grow market share within the region over the months to come as part of its transition to a software and services-based organisation.
Unify delivers integrated communications, collaboration and networking solutions for 75% of the Global 500. The company provides software and services that enhance social collaboration, digital transformation and business performance, through vertical specialised solutions. It is recognised by industry analysts as a leader in corporate telephony and a “visionary” for unified communications.
Tarsus Distribution will work with Unify’s newly-established office in Bryanston, Johannesburg to deliver integrated communications solutions to resellers and their customers.
Says Gerrit Venter, general manager for Tarsus Connect: “With its strong heritage of product reliability, innovation, open standards and security, Unify is a great addition to our product portfolio. It gives our channel partners an excellent suite of unified communications and collaboration products to take to their customer bases.
“The partnership with Unify enables Tarsus to service and develop a whole new segment of our channel, and testifies to our commitment to bringing leading technology to our channel partners and their customers.”
“Unify is committed to investing in and expanding our partner business, so we are delighted to announce the appointment of Tarsus Distribution as our distribution partner within Southern Africa,” says Ralf Bennewitz, regional director for Africa at Unify. “This relationship with Tarsus Distribution supports our transition to a channel-driven sales model.
“Together, we are strongly positioned to grow the business through the appointment of new reseller channel partners.”
