Success in IP Telephony Elevates Structured to Gold Status in ShoreTel’s Champion Partner Program

Company attains the highest ShoreTel partner level for the fifth year in a row

 Structured, a leading information technology and systems integrator of secure and scalable IT solutions and services, today announced it has earned the new gold status designation in ShoreTel’s Champion Partner Program for providing cost-effective IP telephony solutions as part of a secure voice and data network.

Structured has been partnering with ShoreTel since 2002 and has consistently earned the highest partner level for the last five years.

Structured’s information technology expertise integrated with ShoreTel’s award-winning business phone systems delivers the most reliable, value-added IP-PBX deployments for businesses in Structured’s service area, which includes offices in Oregon, Alaska, California, Idaho, Illinois, Nevada and Washington.

ShoreTel provides unified communications solutions based on its business phone systems. The company has designed the Champion Partner Program to strengthen the relationship between ShoreTel and its partners, to advance and grow both companies’ market share in the unified communications industry and to ensure customers continue to be delighted with their ShoreTel experience.

Structured achieved the new gold certification by reaching the highest level sales goal associated with the three tiers of the ShoreTel Champion Partner Program for the previous twelve month period. Recognition is also based on Structured’s commitment to staying current on all sales and technical certifications, managing a specialty voice practice and maintaining product demonstration capabilities.

“Achieving gold status underscores the fact that we’ve cultivated a strategic partnership with ShoreTel that will continue to be successful for both parties,” said Gene Maynor, director of unified communication solutions at Structured. “This marks a pivotal business turning point for our company that paves the way for faster growth in IP communications.”

“Our partners continue to be a vital piece of the company’s success and working with companies like Structured exemplifies our total commitment to customer service and satisfaction,” said Tom Hamilton, senior director of channel marketing for ShoreTel. “We are pleased to recognize their accomplishments and acknowledge how they have helped ShoreTel excel as the leading global provider of IP-based business communication solutions.”
