Q-KON South Africa, a telecommunications services company focused on unified communications, voice over IP (VoIP), SIP and Skype for Business, is the first firm in Africa to be officially certified as an AudioCodes Platinum distributor.
AudioCodes produces VoIP, converged VoIP and networking solutions to service providers and the enterprise market.
As the AudioCodes Platinum Partner for the sub-Saharan Africa region, Q-KON SA can support reseller and system integrator partners to achieve the same accreditation and leverage the benefits from within AudiCodes channel partner programme.
It can also expose AudioCodes customers to advantages such as volume discounts, deal registration discounts and enhanced Not-For-Resale discounts, as well as marketing opportunities.
Depending on the level of qualification acquired (registered, gold or platinum), system integrators and resellers can receive up to 2% of products and services purchased through a Platinum Distributor from a marketing co-operative fund and could claim up to an extra 10% volume incentive rebate on goods purchased through this level distributor.
“There are clear opportunities for reseller or system integrators by engaging with Platinum Distributor partners,” says Tjaart de Wet, MD of Q-KON SA. “Being the first company with this level of accreditation for the Africa region is a major achievement and our aim is to transfer these advantage to our partner and customer base.”
The AudioCodes strategy is to reward focused system integrators and make it easier for resellers to add value to the ecosystem.
Pierre Hugo, country manager (South Africa) at AudioCodes, welcomes Q-KON SA’s achievement and believes this serves as a solid foundation through which to expand the AudioCodes solution portfolio into Africa and enrich its own customer base, as well as help companies in their digital migration and application of UC.
