Nimans’ resellers went back to the classroom to learn how Panasonic’s new SIP-based UC comms solution, the NS1000, can lead them into a new era of sales success.
One dealer made a 550-mile round trip from Southampton to attend the day-long training course at Nimans’ Manchester headquarters - that helped plug any gaps in reseller knowledge - as Panasonic’s powerful communication system took centre stage.
Core system features and benefits, network capabilities, mobility options, UC applications, product positioning and configuration skills formed part of the in-depth learning programme.
Many of the attendees admitted beforehand that they had limited knowledge of IP and SIP based technologies. A Scarborough-based reseller remarked: “I’ve been selling Panasonic since 1987, accumulating over £1.5 million worth of business, but to be honest I don’t understand SIP. Most of my customers are at the smaller end of the market and they still use a phone system just to say ‘hello’. But sooner or later someone will want to move on and I want to be able to help them move forward. The course was invaluable in quenching my thirst for knowledge. I now have much more confidence and desire to succeed.”
Dealers discovered how the NS1000 represents a new chapter in IP-based communication. Product demonstrations highlighted how its expandable architecture and innovative applications ensure maximum flexibility and investment protection for customers, increasing business opportunities through its fully transparent networking features. With on-demand capacity enhancements, resellers heard how the NS1000 is the core of a powerful VoIP communications platform offering flexibility, simplicity and productivity – one solution for business.
One Southampton-based reseller who left home at 4.45am, said the course was “worth every mile.” He explained: “I come from an engineering background and believe that connectivity issues are often the biggest hurdles with SIP, rather than the actual systems themselves. It was great to get a new perspective on how to move forward. Nimans and Panasonic are ideally placed to help us get the most out of these evolving market opportunities. I am very excited by the potential as workplace trends continue to change.”
