On June 27th and 28th, a total of 60 resellers, vendor partners, and Ingram Micro associates gathered at the Hilton Garden Inn in Buffalo, NY for Ingram Micro’s annual Unified Communications Boot Camp.
The two days were jam packed with presentations from Polycom, ShoreTel, HP Networking, Microsoft Lync, Cisco Collaboration, Siemens Enterprise Communications, and D-Link Systems. There was also an engaging time of Speed Networking (Ingram Micro’s corporate style of speed dating) where groups of 2 – 3 resellers were able to rotate in 10 minute increments to each vendor table to hear vendors’ pitches and have their questions answered. Many resellers thought that the Speed Networking was a valuable time to meet with all the sponsoring vendors.
ShoreTel, Polycom, and HP Networking reminded the resellers about their joint Unified Communications solution that may be useful in their back pockets when discussing business solutions with their end user customers.
The group dinner was held at the world famous Russell’s Steakhouse. Everyone came out stuffed from the appetizers, juicy steaks, and dessert!
We ended the Boot Camp by bringing the resellers into the Buffalo Ingram Micro office for breakout sessions and tours of the Solution Center and Experience Center.
Much thanks to all of our participating sponsors – Adtran, ClearOne, Cisco, D-Link, HP Networking, Jabra, Microsoft Lync, Plantronics, Polycom, ShoreTel, Siemens Enterprise Communications, and Transition Networks.
