SUNNYVALE, CA, April 18, 2002 - Shoreline Communications, a developer of enterprise-class IP PBX systems, today announced the creation of the Team Shoreline Program, for qualified resellers across the United States.
Shoreline is now selecting resellers who can provide integration and support services to mid-tier business customers and are dedicated to high customer satisfaction. Until 2002, over 90 percent of Shoreline sales were direct. Company officials predict that, going forward, virtually all future sales will be via channel partnerships.
"The only way to deliver the customer satisfaction we are committed to is with channel partners," said Shoreline President and CEO Thomas van Overbeek. "Our goal is to help resellers become even more successful by providing them with a system that was designed with reliability and multi-site management in mind."
"Our experience with Shoreline has been excellent," said Tom Gobeille, president of Network Computing Architects. "The communication and support that Shoreline provides is outstanding. We just signed up and are already seeing substantial revenue opportunities in our area."
