Spectacular Technology Day
Posted on 02/11/2011
Panasonic resellers turned out in force at a Technology Showcase Day hosted by Nimans - as a complete spectrum of comms innovations fell under the spotlight including a powerful new communication system.
Taking place at Nimans’ Manchester headquarters, around 50 visitors travelled from all four corners of the country to gain an insight into Panasonic’s evolving comms solutions – spanning IP CCTV, HD video conferencing, the latest generation of interactive white boards, a SIP-based Unified Comms platform, the NS1000 and also call management software from CommSoft. In addition dealers enjoyed a guided tour of Nimans’ state-of-the-art logistics operation and discovered more about the distributor’s technical support, on-site services, network services and financial expertise.
One reseller made a 560-mile round-trip from East Sussex, and said afterwards: “What a thoroughly worthwhile experience. It was great to see so many different technologies which are available from one place, Nimans. Panasonic is an exciting brand to be with as it’s really going places. The video conferencing stood out for me. It’s becoming a big part of our business. The multi-site synergy with existing data networks and the virtual plug and play connectivity and ease of delivery is so refreshing.”
Another dealer from Cirencester, who has been buying from Nimans for over 25 years, added: “It was worth the overnight trip just to see the new comms system, but there was so much more to discover. I’ve come away with lots of productive ideas to grow my business. HD video conferencing is an area we could develop as every time petrol prices go up, so does demand for conferencing.”
Nimans’ Head of System Sales, Paul Burn, says the day-long event provided customers with a convenient snapshot of the company’s expanding Panasonic portfolio - combining live product demonstrations with opportunities to meet key personnel from Nimans, Panasonic and CommSoft.
“The day allowed us to highlight how our Panasonic product portfolio now encompasses many different areas of the market. Feedback was extremely positive as we reinforced our reputation as a complete one-stop shop for Panasonic comms technology.”
He added: “The launch of the new SMB telephone platform also proved a big talking point as the NS1000 represents a new chapter in IP-based communication. We demonstrated how its expandable architecture and many innovative applications ensures maximum flexibility and investment protection for customers, increasing business opportunities through its fully transparent networking features. With on-demand capacity enhancements, the NS1000 is the core of a powerful VoIP communications platform offering flexibility, simplicity and productivity – one solution for business.”
