SUNNYVALE, CA, December 11, 2006 - ShoreTel, Inc., the fastest growing IP PBX company worldwide and the leader in customer satisfaction, today announced the appointment of Secom Communications Technologies as its Value-Added Distribution partner for the Netherlands.
Secom, a company with 13 years telecoms experience specialising in IP solutions, will distribute and support ShoreTel's' award-winning VoIP systems to resellers, systems integrators and channel partners in the Netherlands.
Being as obsessed with customer satisfaction as it is with revenue and profit, ShoreTel has chosen to implement a two tier distribution model in most of Europe, as it is convinced this is the best structure to ensure that its customer are not only satisfied - but are delighted with the company's products and services.
In announcing the appointment Geoff Gudgion, ShoreTel's EMEA Managing Director stated, "Secom's IP expertise and experience is an ideal fit for ShoreTel, as they share our passion for customer satisfaction and providing customers with real value for money".

It is built from the ground up to be the easiest to use, easiest to manage, full-featured IP PBX system on the market today. Its distributed architecture is ideal for multi-site companies that span multiple locations because their phone system appears and behaves as one, unified system.
"ShoreTel's two tier distribution model, combined with its innovative product range and customer satisfaction ethos, should enable the company to grow its market share in Europe at similar levels to its impressive US growth rates" commented Keith Humphreys, Managing Consultant of euroLAN.
In addition to distributing ShoreTel's range of IP PBX products Secom provides additional value to it business partners and resellers through the provision of consultancy, marketing, training and support services.
