– Westcon-Comstor (Westcon), the leading value-added global distributor of security, unified communications, network infrastructure and data center solutions, has issued eight awards to Avaya partners in the UK and Ireland at the Avaya ‘Partners of the Year’ awards 2017.


The Avaya ‘Partners of the Year’ winners were recognised for their customer-centric approach, close working relationships with Avaya, Westcon and the reseller, and their continued commitment to training.


The awards ceremony was held at Westcon’s Avaya Partner Roadshow event in London, followed by other regional events in Manchester and Dublin. The Avaya reseller community turned out in force to each event, with over 130 resellers across the roadshow tour, to listen to senior keynote speakers present Avaya’s strategic vision, product roadmap and live solution demonstrations.
