ShoreTel Inks Distribution Agreement with Tech Data Canada
ShoreTel’s new agreement with Tech Data Canada extends business communication solutions to the broader Canadian market. The agreement aims to increase availability of the ShoreTel solution to partners and customers in all Canadian Provinces and Territories.
Tech Data Canada offers expertise in IP telephony, wireless networking and VoIP technologies and maintains a strong partner base of over 5,000 technology resellers and solution providers. ShoreTel’s partnership with Tech Data Canada will give resellers the ability to operate effectively in local currencies and time zones and with local inventory, offering stand-alone ShoreTel products, as well as fully integrated, multi-vendor solutions designed to best meet customer needs.
As ShoreTel continues to scale its global reach and extend deeper into the Canadian market, the addition of an experienced, value-added distributor such as Tech Data Canada will ensure ShoreTel continues to deliver unsurpassed quality and value to Canadian customers. This agreement is part of ShoreTel’s recently announced global two-tier channel distribution strategy.

We’re thrilled to work with Tech Data Canada to deliver ShoreTel’s brilliantly simple line of UC products throughout the Canadian market, and we are confident that the relationship will empower our partners and customers to find the ShoreTel solution best suited to their unique communications needs and resources.”
