Samsung Business Communications has appointed Julian Barnes as UK Channel Sales Director. Barnes has been with the company for three years and has sales and commercial experience in the converged communication space working for both Resellers and Distributors.
Commenting on his appointment Julian stated, “These are exciting times for both Samsung and our channel, the award winning OfficeServ platform continues to grow apace and we have big plans for the recently launched 7000 series which delivers a secure, reliable and truly converged voice and data communication solution.”
“We are planning to add to the OfficeServ 7000 portfolio bringing even further scalability to the existing security, IP, CTI and voice functionality already offered by the OfficeServ 7200 platform.”
Julian continued, “Security is a major issue for our Resellers and their customers. When you implement IP Telephony the last thing you want to worry about is whether your voice system has become vulnerable to attack. Samsung are the only vendor currently addressing this important concern with a fully integrated intrusion detection and protection solution that is available across the OfficeServ 7000 series.”
“The Samsung portfolio of products and applications has never been in better shape and our channel partners now have an excellent opportunity to tackle not only the traditional voice market but also to seek out new market areas by exploiting the unique security elements that are available, out of the box, with the OfficeServ 7000 series. Our channel can now address added value services such as, security audits and monitoring, network and wireless audits and facilities management.”
