AVANT and Zoom Expand Partnership to Offer Unified Communications Software Solutions in Europe

AVANT Network of Trusted Advisors Now Offering Zoom’s Portfolio of Solutions throughout Europe

LONDON – June 29, 2020 – AVANT Communications, a master agent and leader in channel sales enablement of next generation technology solutions, announced the expansion of their partnership as part of Zoom’s Referral Partner Program to offer Zoom’s video-first unified communications platform through AVANT’s network of Trusted Advisors in Europe.

The announcement comes just months after the companies launched their partnership in the United States as part of Zoom’s first foray into the channel which marked the first time select master agents had the opportunity to take Zoom Phone to market.

The partnership expands AVANT’s best-in-class solution portfolio to include Zoom’s variety of unified communications solutions including Zoom Phone, Zoom Meetings, Zoom Rooms, and Zoom Webinars available across desktops, phones, mobile devices, and conference room systems. AVANT Trusted Advisors in Europe can now combine the enhanced portfolio with industry-leading expertise, state-of-the-art tools such as the AVANT Pathfinder and proprietary market research via AVANT Analytics to influence IT decision-making for enterprise customers.

“In the current business climate where we have seen a sharp increase in the amount of work being done remotely by companies across the globe, and considering the rapidly changing IT landscape, we are proud and excited to offer Zoom to our enterprise customers in Europe through our network of Trusted Advisors,” said AVANT President, Drew Lydecker. “Zoom continues to disrupt the industry and raise the bar in how unified communications solutions can drive stronger collaboration and efficiency and we look forward to bringing these solutions to more international enterprises.”

For more than a decade, AVANT has positioned itself globally as the leading distributor of next-generation technologies, paving the way for others in the agent community to ramp up their portfolios with disruptors that are taking the landscape by storm. The expansion of the partnership with Zoom represents a further commitment to providing value and innovative solutions to the companies’ mutual customers.

“In just the short time since we launched our partnership with AVANT, we have seen tremendous success and see even more opportunity to expand that relationship on a global scale,” said Ravi Patel, Head of EMEA Channels for Zoom Video Communications. “Our primary focus is to bring happiness to our customers and AVANT’s team of industry expert Trusted Advisors aid in that mission to provide the very best unified communications platform on the market today and continue enhancing our portfolio to help businesses grow.”

Zoom’s video-first unified communications platform is now available to enterprises across the U.S. and Europe via AVANT’s Trusted Advisor network. More information on AVANT’s Unified Communications and Collaboration solutions is available here.
