Datasharp’s Annual Principals Meeting held last month has been hailed as the best conference yet. Together with industry leaders such as AltiGen Communications, ShoreTel, Siemens and LG-Nortel; the 80 strong Group were presented with the most innovative business changing solutions available in the marketplace.
In his opening presentation Roy Carter, MD of Datasharp UK congratulated the Group on their growth and achievements; most recently they received Siemens Reseller of the Year, Comms Business Reseller of the Year (Large) and Overall Reseller of the Year.
It was then straight down to business as Paul Fullman, UK Sales Director, Datasharp UK, took to the stand. It was no surprise that the theme of the day was Unified Communications but there was an air of genuine excitement as the Datasharp Principals became aware that these were not the usual UC presentations.
“We have been constantly investing in growing our knowledge and experience at delivering complete business solutions for our customers.” said Paul Fullman. “The importance of this strategy during these tough economic times cannot be understated. By providing competitive, technology rich solutions to our customers, we are able to empower them to meet their own specific business challenges.”
And it wasn’t just the Principals getting excited about being part of the Datasharp Group. Jerry Fleming, President and COO AltiGen Communications was keen to comment, “we’ve been very impressed with Datasharp from the onset of our partnership. The Principal’s Meeting is further demonstration of Datasharp’s commitment to Unified Communications. It’s clear that AltiGen’s unique Microsoft-based Unified Communications solution along with the expertise of Datasharp represents a perfect match. After this outstanding event we’re more excited than ever to work closely with Datasharp and their business partners to drive new and innovative Unified Communications solutions in the market.”
This was a view shared by Tom Perry, Director of Marketing EMEA, ShoreTel. “In just 8 months Shoretel have now established a fantastic relationship with Datasharp and their offices throughout the UK. The Principal’s Conference was the chance to hammer home our architecture and application advantages and see what the offices need moving forward. The conference has given us a wonderful opportunity to get feedback on the Shoretel products and services, inform Datasharp about the future of Shoretel and all in an excellent venue with a well put together event. We look forward to another year of success with Datasharp.”
Michael Dixon, owner of Datasharp Telephony Solutions summed up the feeling of the day, “Simply brilliant – Datasharp excel yet again! Principals meeting 09 was a huge success: innovative, informative, productive and delivered with panache. It is a pleasure being part of the Datasharp Family.”
Roy Carter, MD Datasharp UK, concluded “Our Group success in winning a number of significant sales in the unified communications market is celebrated by all of our members – working together is our strength. We strive to hold an event that busy sales people actually look forward to attending, learn a lot from and are entertained by all at the same time. Our members enjoy the support, the knowledge and portfolio we can offer them – it’s why we’ve been so successful. The atmosphere is fantastic and it’s great for members to meet each other and our suppliers in both a formal and, later in the evening, very informal way. I am delighted with how the Datasharp Group is growing and I know I speak for everyone when I say that we are all looking forward to our continued success and recognition as a dominant force in the communications space.”
