With ten’s of thousands of SV8500 users worldwide, Nottingham-based NEC look forward to increasing this figure by taking their ‘easy to do business with’ approach to the UK enterprise market sector.
“The SV8500 makes the NEC portfolio here in the UK complete across all markets,” says Sales Director Andrew Cooper. “Our other systems are successful within the small business to medium markets; now we have the product to enable our UK resellers to hit the enterprise space.”
Cooper observes that the SV8500 has been globally successful for NEC and has in no small way contributed to NEC becoming one of the leading brands at enterprise level. All segments of the Enterprise market have benefitted from the SV8500 from hotels, hospitals and universities to government offices. “This provides an opportunity to further propel NEC into vertical markets,” he says. The SV8500 maintains NEC’s product ethos by allowing users to seamlessly expand from 200 to an incredible 192,000 endpoints by simply adding extra units.
On-boarding new products is a seamless process for NEC resellers, and Cooper says that an enterprise level product is no exception. “Sharing the same legacy as the SV8100, this is a great new opportunity for ambitious resellers” claims Cooper.
Jim Robertson has been newly recruited as the Business Manager for the SV8500. “The SV8500 works with the same handsets and DECT as the SV8100, and has very similar applications.” says Robertson. “The shared hardware and applications across the two systems provides huge benefit to the reseller”.
So what puts this platform in a class of its own? “The NEC SV8500 offers a highly scalable platform with excellent network survivability options, and with a single point of management it’s very easy to manage and control costs across the network.” Robertson adds, “Not only that, the powerful suite of applications help drive more efficient communication and ultimately empower the staff as they are the most valuable asset in a company.”
