Tech Data’s specialised solution business Maverick AV Solutions has announced a new distribution agreement with Zoom Video Communications.
Maverick AV Solutions will support Zoom in expanding its global footprint, beginning with North America and Europe. The business will help Zoom growth into new customer segments, and support the growth of the Zoom Rooms workplace collaboration solution.
The Zoom platform integrates with all hardware systems to ensure that customers can utilise existing room equipment or upgrade to create an experience to suit their meeting and collaboration style. It is ideal for any collaboration space, from small focus rooms or offices to world-class training and broadcasting centres.
Maverick AV Solutions will draw on its ecosystem of market-leading collaboration vendors to work with the Zoom team globally and build tailored solutions to help integrators create room systems with fast deployment.
Zoom already boasts partnerships with a number of Maverick’s vendors including Logitech, Dell and Crestron.
“Zoom Video Communications is one of the most exciting businesses to enter the meeting room space in recent years, and the quality of the user experience is giving it a vital ingredient—rapid user adoption,” said Jon Sidwick, vice president, at Maverick AV Solutions.
“Zoom Rooms offer a great opportunity for our resellers, and with our global footprint, Maverick AV Solutions is able to offer Zoom a consistent experience for multi-country roll-outs. Our understanding of and specialization in audio visual technologies will help Zoom deploy quickly through the channel and help integrators to bring Zoom Rooms into the market rapidly.”
Laura Padilla, head of business development and channel at Zoom, added: “Zoom’s partnership with Maverick will delight our customers by providing consistent packaging of Zoom Room solutions in conjunction with our hardware-optimized partners.
“This relationship represents an exciting point in our global expansion plans to extend our footprint into new markets, simplify the solution-purchasing process and grow our ecosystem of partners. We look forward to executing on the value of our partnership with Maverick quickly, and improving our customers’ and partners’ experiences.”
