Avaya Crowns Crème de la Crème of Americas’ Channel Connect Partners

The annual Americas Executive Partner Forum (AEPF) in Cancun came to an end last week after three days of partner engagement, channel strategy keynotes, solution breakout sessions and–let’s be honest–a few seaside margaritas. The underlying pulse of the AEPF was enabling Avaya channel partners to take advantage of the demand for midmarket and enterprise Engagement Solutions and leverage the flexibility of cloud services.

As the beach cabanas are deconstructed and the grand stage taken down, we want to take a moment to acknowledge and congratulate the leading Avaya Connect Partners of 2014 in the Americas.
