Eicon Networks and CT3 Europe Partner With GFI to Unveil New Channel Strategy

By | May 23, 2006

Eicon Networks Corporation (Eicon), a global leader in providing world class products and technologies for media processing, today announced that leading computer telephony distributor CT3 Europe will be bundling Eicon´s Diva Server products with the award winning GFI FAXmaker product from leading messaging software provider GFI Software to deliver a complete fax server solution for channel resellers in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

This high quality solution will be sold via the channel, providing partners with an innovative and highly competitive fax server package to deliver new revenue opportunities.

“Traditionally it has been down to the reseller to source the hardware and software separately, which, given all the confusing choices, is not always cost effective,” observed Ewan Haig, Eicon UK Sales Manager.

“CT3´s decision to bundle Diva Server cards and GFI FAXmaker addresses this situation by offering resellers a tried and tested combination and an all important healthier margin opportunity.”

Bundling Eicon Diva Server cards and GFI FAXmaker offers resellers a one stop shop for a market leading fax server solution that comes with established pre and post-sales technical support. CT3 Europe will deliver to resellers a complete enterprise fax solution that is both

cutting edge and competitively priced.

“Moving to a channel rather than a direct sales strategy is a significant undertaking for us, and a great opportunity to strengthen GFI FAXmaker´s position as the leading fax server solution in the UK and Ireland,” said Simon Azzopardi, MD GFI EMEA. “Through our new channel partnership with Eicon and CT3 Europe we can ultimately deliver a better service to our customers.”

GFI FAXmaker integrates with any email server and allows employees to send, receive, view, print, and save faxes from any PC or laptop without having to print a copy or visit the fax machine, which improves efficiency and productivity by allowing employees more time to carry out other business tasks.

GFI FAXmaker also supports Eicon´s Diva Server SoftIP, which empowers interoperability with enterprise IP PBXs such as Cisco Call Manager and Call Manager Express.

“We have a history of partnering with world leading hardware and software manufacturers,” said Tim Farrelly MD CT3 Europe. “Our ability to bundle Eicon Networks Diva Server products with GFI Software now delivers a key facet of our product strategy, best of breed enterprise fax solutions. This is packaged with the reseller and customer in mind, providing market leading technology that meets the communications challenges of today´s business, and at a price that is realistic,” he concludes.
