During this 2-day gathering, Aastra’s channel partners and distributors were able to get updated on the latest communication trends and technological achievements as well as Aastra’s specific partner program for the region and a new sales incentive program. This incentive program called "Top Gun" is open to all certified partners and their resellers and rewards sales and pre-sales individuals based on a point gathering system similar to frequent flyer programs.
Participants were able to experience live high definition (HD) video conferencing with the Aastra BluStar™ 8000i media phone. Aastra also presented the new BluStar™ Client that takes video collaboration to a new level with a consistent customer experience across a choice of devices such as PCs, iPads and iPhones. It helps users work together more effectively – for example, on-the fly video conferencing with remote workers, road-warriors and teams working on the same project to exchange ideas more easily and collaboratively.
