“Business Phone Reseller” database — 2007 Edition underway

September 12, 2007 — As part of our consulting practice, Market Metrics is sometimes asked by manufacturers of business telephone systems and related products to assist in developing their Canadian distribution networks. For this reason, and for use in our own market analyses, we maintain a database of interconnects, value-added resellers, systems integrators and other distributor partners that are authorised by manufacturers to carry new KTS, PBX and/or IP-PBX systems.

This is a free opportunity for your company to be considered when a manufacturer is looking for new Canadian partners.

Our existing information about your company is available upon request — just contact Greg Graham at (613) 270-9676 or greg_graham@marketmetrics.ca and we will fax it to you for your review. You’ll see that we don’t request anything confidential, just contact information and the brands that your company is authorised to carry. In return, we ask that you review it, either mark it “OK AS IS” or note any changes, and then fax it back to us at 613-270-0290.

You may have also received a mailing from us with your company’s information for review. If so, please review it and fax it back as described above.

Please note that only firms that sell and install new KTS, PBX and/or IP-PBX systems are eligible -– sorry, but we don’t track used/refurbished equipment brokers or retailers that sell residential equipment.

We regret that only responses received by September 22 can be included in the 2007 edition.

Responses are still coming in, so we have extended our deadline to September 29.
