New distribution partnership will bring Lifesize portfolio to more customers across Germany, Austria and Switzerland
Lifesize®, a global innovator of video collaboration and meeting productivity solutions, announced today it has signed a distribution partner agreement with COMM-TEC. Under the new agreement, more than 3000 resellers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH) will be able to offer Lifesize meeting room systems and cloud services to their customers starting August 1, 2019.
“We decided to make Lifesize our first unified communications partner because video communication has rapidly become one of the most impactful, collaborative technologies for the modern enterprise,” said Carsten Steinecker, managing director of business development for COMM-TEC. “Lifesize’s strengths in providing both endpoint hardware for meeting rooms and cloud-based services for distributed teams will resonate with the systems integrators, AV dealers and consultants we serve.”
As COMM-TEC’s sole unified communications (UC) partner, Lifesize will provide a dedicated team for onboarding, training, sales enablement and support while COMM-TEC promotes Lifesize’s award-winning products and services within its reseller network.
“Through the company’s work with Barco and other partners, COMM-TEC has consistently demonstrated impressive expertise and execution in selling, implementing and supporting a broad range of technologies for businesses in the DACH region and beyond,” said Tim Maloney, senior vice president of worldwide channels for Lifesize. “Lifesize’s complete meeting room solutions will be a natural fit for their reseller ecosystem, and we look forward to working together closely to benefit customers for years to come.”
