New Alliance Elevates D&H’s Collaboration Portfolio with Unified Communications Audio & Video Conferencing Solutions, Fostering Seamless Collaboration for Remote, Mobile, and Hybrid Workplaces
Major SMB and mid-market technology provider D&H Distributing announces it has signed an agreement to carry solutions from Jabra, an industry-leading provider of audio, video, and collaboration solutions for the modern workplace. This alliance expands D&H’s Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) portfolio of integrated business solutions for channel partners. The agreement also encompasses PanaCast, Jabra’s line of video collaboration solutions. This covers innovations like the PanaCast 50 intelligent video bar, which combines top-flight audio with a panoramic 4K camera to help companies seamlessly navigate the hybrid workplace.
To support this area of growth, D&H has also extended its popular “Success Path” strategy to address the UCC category. This initiative (first introduced as “Success Path to Cloud”) provides resources and tools to help solution providers enter new areas of opportunity in the post-pandemic market. It includes a Success Path to Unified Communications webinar series to help educate partners on how to launch and optimize a UCaaS practice, or unified communications-as-a-service. Partners can visit D&H’s unified communications page, part of its www.dandh.com/cloud resource center for information and access to the webcast series.
Equipping the Hybrid Conference Space
The ability to offer cutting-edge UCC hardware, collaboration solutions, and services will help D&H partners address one of the newest opportunities of the modern workplace: The hybrid meeting space. MSPs are being called upon to retrofit or enhance conference rooms and huddle areas to accommodate a mix of on-site and remote attendees. D&H’s team of Solutions Experts have deep experience in end-to-end UCC and ProAV deployments and can apply a comprehensive menu of Professional Services to help ensure the success of these upgrades.
“Jabra believes in reinforcing long-term relationships with premium partners who continually provide a high-quality experience to our customers,” said Cheryle Walline, Head of Channel Sales and Distributions NA at Jabra. “D&H embodies this ideal. They have successfully sold our consumer line of products for over ten years and now expand their portfolios to include our business enterprise solutions. We embrace this expanded relationship and look forward to many more years of mutual success.”
“The hybrid conference room is becoming a necessity of the new workplace,” said Jason Bystrak, D&H’s vice president of cloud and services. “D&H has developed a level of XaaS expertise that can integrate Jabra’s high-performance, versatile unified communications solutions to maintain seamless collaboration for these new projects. As the workforce becomes more fluid, filtering back and forth between locations, organizations need intelligent solutions that will accommodate this dynamic. Industry pioneers like Jabra help make the transition successful.”
