According to company officials, Transition Systems also holds distribution agreements with ShoreTel for Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore. In India, Transition has offices in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai.Bruce Downing, ShoreTel managing director Asia and South Africa, said that the simplicity of ShoreTel’s architecture and management platform provides a compelling solution for Indian organizations, particularly those with a distributed presence across India.“ShoreTel’s simple architecture allows our solution to easily scale with the organization. In a market like India, where many businesses experience rapid growth in employees or physical locations, a ShoreTel UC or Contact Centre solution can keep pace with the organization’s communications needs, and is easy to manage and maintain using internal resources,” said Downing, in a statement.
He added that ShoreTel solutions have already been sold and implemented in India to service a number of the company’s global customers.
“We have had success to date and some of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the region through our global system integrators, such as Xtelesis,” said Downing. ShoreTel recently appointed Rajiv Sharma as Country Manager - India.
