Channel News: Jenne Added to Cloud Master Agent Program

This time of year, we tend to focus on where we are going as a company; but we also begin taking action to turn that vision for 2015 (and beyond) into a reality. For Digium, the most significant additions to our lineup of solutions (that’s helping us realize our corporate vision) includes our cloud-based Unified Communications (UC) and SIP trunking services, both available via Digium Cloud Services. As part of these services, our goal has been to partner with the top tier agents to bring what we believe is the most comprehensive solution to our customers, offered from one vendor. We’ve already had a lot of success in finding and partnering with some outstanding agents. Additionally, we partnered with a top distributor, Jenne Inc., for all things voice and IT. Now, we are extremely pleased to announce that Jenne has expanded their agreement to become a Cloud Master Agent, offering Digium cloud-based services, in addition to our Switchvox on-premises business phone systems and Asterisk hardware products.

Jenne is a leading value-added distributor of business telephony, data, audio and video conferencing, and security technology products, including equipment and software for the SMB and Enterprise markets. Since the company’s founding in 1986, they have committed to providing installers, dealers and resellers with a broad product selection, competitive pricing, on-time accurate delivery, outstanding technical support plus ongoing sales and technical training. Jenne’s strategic alliances ensure the continuing ability to meet resellers’ growing needs. Patrick Howard, senior director of cloud solutions for Jenne, Inc. believes “the demand for cloud deployed solutions continues to gain momentum in the channel. More and more Jenne channel partners are asking for cloud solutions every day. Our new cloud partnership with Digium allows Jenne to expand our cloud portfolio, meet growing demand and create new business. We’re excited to be working with Digium to expand the cloud unified communications marketplace.”

Having excelled with the expertise Jenne brought to Digium as a distributor, we are confident that they will bring the same level of knowledge and overall value as a Master Agent for us and their partners. Steve Harvey, VP of Worldwide Sales here at digium said it best: “As a valued, existing distributor, it is particularly exciting to welcome Jenne into our Cloud Master Agent program, allowing them to expand their portfolio of solutions with our hosted PBX and SIP trunking services. Switchvox Cloud was developed with Digium’s premises-based Switchvox PBX. Resellers already selling and supporting on-premises Switchvox products are able to leverage their expertise to rapidly deploy these cloud-based solutions to their SMB customers with little to no learning curve.”
