by Kevin Gillingham | Mar 12, 2013

MARKHAM, ON–(March 11, 2013) – Activo, a national IP infrastructure company for network and technology solutions, today announced their partnership with ShoreTel, an integrated communications company with a focus on unified communications.  The partnership will leverage ShoreTel’s high performance, award winning products and systems to advance Activo’s ability to integrate network-enabled products and services into innovative solutions.

The partnership with ShoreTel gives Activo access to VoIP and unified communications products that are built on the principles of simplicity and efficiency. This collaboration will directly benefit customers seeking an easy-to-use, best-in-class unified communications system.

George Pappas, Managing Director for ShoreTel Canada says “I’m extremely pleased to be in partnership with Activo, and look forward to working together and leveraging the strengths of both organizations to bring world-class telecommunications solutions to the Canadian marketplace.  Activo’s ability to provide a true end-to-end and comprehensive IT solution to their customers is what sets them apart, and now integrating the ShoreTel solution set will continue to drive this differentiation”.

Unified communications is an important emerging technology for enterprise businesses of all sizes, as integrating communications tasks provides a host of benefits. Uniting VoIP telephony, instant messaging, video conferencing, mobility, presence, and collaboration allows businesses to focus on their business, rather than spending time struggling with a multitude of complicated communications systems.

For companies operating in industries that rely on technology and communication for their day-to-day activities, unified communications has become a must-have. The partnership between Activo and ShoreTel allows businesses to have access to the skilled technicians, quality products, and simple solutions that they need to improve their productivity in the digital business environment.

Kevin Gillingham, V.P. Sales and Marketing, of Activo says “We are very pleased with our new partnership with ShoreTel.   At Activo, we have a national presence and service a diverse customer base – many with multiple locations across Canada.  With ShoreTel’s purpose-built distributed voice architecture, we will be able to provide our customers with fully unified communication services to all of their locations, large and small.”
