Small and Medium Hispanic Businesses in Florida Benefit from Avaya, Tallard Relationship to Deliver Business Communications Systems

12-07-2005

Avaya and Tallard Technologies, a reseller that provides communications solutions to companies in Latin America, the Caribbean and Florida, are working together to bring Avaya's secure, reliable, and easy-to-use communications systems to small and medium businesses in Florida.

Avaya (NYSE: AV), a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services and Tallard Technologies, a reseller that provides communications solutions to companies in Latin America, the Caribbean and Florida, are working together to bring Avaya's secure, reliable, and easy-to-use communications systems to small and medium businesses in Florida.

 

Tallard will distribute a suite of Avaya solutions for small and medium companies that includes Avaya IP Office - a secure, intelligent, and easy-to-use converged voice and data system designed for small and medium businesses; PARTNER® Advanced Communications System, a telecommunications system that supports advanced telephony capabilities, including messaging and wireless applications to enhance company productivity; and PARTNER Small Office Edition, a specially-priced bundle that connects up to eight extensions and includes the PARTNER system, four analog phones and a voice mail package for $1,199. Tallard is already an Avaya distributor in the Caribbean and Latin America region.

 

"There are more than 55,000 small and medium Hispanic-owned businesses in Florida, and most of them are in the Southern part of the state," said Manny Rodriguez, director of convergence, Tallard. "Every company, no matter what size they are or industry they're in, wants to compete and flourish, so resellers must meet the needs of a perse market. Many companies want the latest applications made possible by IP telephony, and others - the small retail stores, delis, pizza shops, dentists, doctors and small distributors - are looking for systems like the Partner bundle for basic voice telephony functions and value for their money."

 

ANEW Broadband Communication and Sytec-USA are already working with Tallard to bring Avaya solutions to Hispanic companies.

 

ANEW Broadband Communication provides voice, data and high-speed internet services in addition to local, long distance and international telephone calling plans to customers in South Florida and Latin America, and recently added IP Office to its portfolio.

 

"We are an application service provider, but it was clear to us that our customers also needed the systems that could support sophisticated applications," said Jose Matto, vice president, business development, ANEW Broadband Communication. "After considering several solutions, we chose the Avaya IP Office, and, in fact, we've developed a new way to integrate it with our backbone service provider, Level 3, and our mobility provider, Motorola, to provide our customers voice and data service on a single line."

 

Sytec-USA provides secure networks with the latest advancements in telecommunication and computer technologies to companies of all sizes throughout Miami. "We are already an Avaya reseller bringing Avaya solutions to customers of all sizes," said Armando Garcia, CEO, Sytec-USA. "We believe developing a relationship with a local distributor, such as Tallard, will enable us to give our perse customers faster turnaround and improved support, because our technology specialists will have access to additional training, translating into our ability to better serve our customers."
