BRUSSELS, Belgium – ScanSource Communications®, a leading European distributor of voice, video and data communications solutions, has developed a new tool, ScanSource Designer, in an effort to enhance the configuration services offered to its reseller partners. The new tool builds on the services provided by the Avaya IP Office Designer tool, which was also developed by ScanSource and has been well-received by resellers for its user-friendly functionalities.
Through ScanSource Designer, resellers are able to save time creating quotes, obtain pricing faster and help their partners that may not have experience configuring solutions. The new tool provides improved functionality, including the addition of Avaya Server Edition and the new Avaya Price Model (APM). The tool is also able to export to Avaya EC format, which helps to solve compatibility issues. What’s more, ScanSource Designer offers improved integration with Avaya offerings, including networking solutions, IP Office Support Services (IPOSS) and Radvision video.
ScanSource Designer is capable of multi-site configurations and will soon be available in French, in addition to German and English. While the tool was initially designed for Avaya solutions, ScanSource is planning to add more of its industry-leading manufacturer partners.
“ScanSource Designer is a comprehensive configuration tool that helps our partners quickly and easily configure solutions for their end-user customers, even if they don’t have extensive knowledge of the features and benefits of the solution,” said Rudy De Meirsman, managing director, ScanSource Communications, Europe. “We have received very positive feedback from our partners about the tool and look forward to adding additional solutions from our vendor partners.”
