Enterprise cloud communications provider RingCentral Australia has announced a master agent partnership with IT distributor Westcon-Comstor to distribute its solutions to channel partners in Australia.

RingCentral says the expanded Australian partnership enables local teams to take advantage of the extensive experience and the deep connections already established between the two businesses across the globe.

“Demand for UCaaS solutions among Australian organisations is phenomenal right now,” said Ben Swanson, Director of Channel Sales for Asia Pacific at RingCentral.

“Westcon has a well-established distribution business here in Australia, and an extensive portfolio of complementary vendors and technologies that play perfectly with our cloud platform. We are excited by the possibilities in the integrated solutions we can develop with Westcon and present to their partners.”

Phil Cameron, Managing Director, Westcon-Comstor Australia, said, “Westcon already has a close partnership with RingCentral in a number of territories around the world, so we are excited about our opportunity in Australia.

“As a specialised technology distributor, we can leverage our channel experience, technical expertise and sales know-how to really hit the ground running here.”
