Nuvias launches Unified Communications Practice

Nuvias has launched its Unified Communications (UC) Practice in the EMEA, the company said.

The Practice is based on the UC capabilities and services provided by SIPHON Networks, which became part of the Nuvias Group in October 2016.

SIPHON is a leading, award-winning UC solutions and technology enabler for the channel. In 2016, it was named the 24th fastest growing technology company in the UK, as part of Deloitte´s prestigious UK Technology Fast 50 rankings, achieving 723% growth in the four years prior to the award.

SIPHON is already established in the UK and Benelux. The UC practice will be rolled out across EMEA over the coming months, through Nuvias regional branches, starting with Germany. More Nuvias staff are being added throughout EMEA to support vendor and reseller partners.

Existing UC vendors and new vendors are expected to take advantage of Nuvias´ growing UC capability across EMEA to increase sales in the region. Likewise, it is anticipated that both existing and new Nuvias reseller/integrator channel partners across EMEA will take up the opportunity to enter this thriving market or expand their UC business.

SIPHON´s solutions were developed for channel partners who want to deploy either cloud-based or premise-based UC technology, solutions and services. Through its work with service providers and resellers, SIPHON has honed a unique skillset around its professional and technical support services, as well as its solution engineering services, growing to become a trusted technology-enablement partner to many of the industry´s key UC players.

Nuvias Group is the pan-EMEA, high value distribution business, which is redefining international, specialist distribution in IT. The company has created a platform to deliver a consistent, high value, service-led and solution-rich proposition across EMEA. This allows partner and vendor communities to provide exceptional business support to customers and enables new standards of channel success.

The Group today consists of Wick Hill, an award-winning, value-added distributor with a strong specialisation in security; Zycko, an award-winning, specialist EMEA distributor, with a focus on advanced networking; and SIPHON Networks, an award-winning UC solutions and technology enabler for the channel. All three companies have proven experience at providing innovative technology solutions from world-class vendors, and delivering market growth for vendor partners and customers. The Group has 21 regional offices across EMEA, as well as serving additional countries through those offices. Turnover is in excess of USUSD 350 million.
