Konftel Announces Global Award Winners

Collaboration endpoint specialist Konftel has announced a series of global award winners, in tribute to some of its top performing distribution partners.

Each year Konftel highlights its key distributors around the world with a special accolade, spanning best partners and largest growth, across different territories. The company says 2021 saw a continuing expansion and strengthening of relationships, as part of a dedicated ‘channel only’ route to market. 

Director of Global Sales, Tommy Edlund, believes Konftel is ideally placed to help resellers and their customers in the continuing transition to hybrid working between offices and homes. 

“In many ways 2021 was a rollercoaster year, shaped by the pandemic and concerns over global warming. Video conferencing is now at the heart of more flexible and environmentally friendly ways of working. Konftel continues to evolve, backed by a loyal and dedicated distributor and reseller base, with no direct sales.” 

Edlund continued: “Our strong partner network, combined with an expanding and innovative product portfolio, catapults Konftel further forward and helps organisations across the globe successfully transition to more hybrid ways of working. We expect these trends to continue for the long term, based on sustainability, agility and high performance visual and audio technologies.” 

Hall of fame

Best partners: Jenne Inc (North America), Exertis PRO AV (NL) (Western Europe), KONTEL Spolka Z Ograniczona (Central Europe), Adam Bilisim Teknolojileri Ic (Eastern Europe), IsiCom AB (Northern Europe), Komsa Kommunikation Sachsen AG (DACH), Green Sources Pvt. Ltd (India and Middle East), Control Tech Group Ltd (North East Asia). 

Largest growth: Neocenter SA de CV (North America), Itancia (Western Europe), KONTEL Spolka Z Ograniczona (Central Europe), PeBeCom AS (Northern Europe), Herweck AG (DACH), Kaul Data System Inc (North East Asia), Headset Solutions (Africa). 

Rising to the challenge 

"When the majority of office workers around the world suddenly needed effective distance meeting solutions to continue to perform, our partners and their reseller networks rose to the challenge and played a frontline role to help them transition," says Edlund. “Now a new phase is emerging based on a permanent blend of office and home employment.” 

High-quality video kits such as the Konftel C2070 and Konftel C50800 Hybrid continue to grow in popularity in line with today’s dispersed workforce trends, where more video meetings take place across more locations. The Konftel Personal Video Kit – featuring a business class webcam and speakerphone – is another solution in demand, delivering professional quality personal video meetings wherever work takes place. 

"We are living in different times and a different world, especially around distance working. As people return to the office in bigger numbers, expectations around flexible and agile working have changed forever. We won’t go back to before," Edlund emphasized. 

Climate Neutral

In addition Konftel is also inspiring more ‘greener’ ways of working, as demonstrated by its Climate Neutral Certified status. Edlund feels many more rooms need to be adapted for video conferencing, as almost every meeting will have at least one participant joining from a distance. He highlighted how sustainable climate friendly products are particularly important in relation to the large volume of hardware investments, catering for the hybrid workplace. 

He concluded: “Conferencing is a proven and effective environmentally friendly alternative to business travel, and it will continue to play a key role as working life evolves. We are ideally placed to help resellers transition their customers to more hybrid ways of working as the digital transformation journey gathers pace. We thank all our partners everywhere for their valued support and congratulate the award winners on their success.”
