Jenne, Inc. has long been an expert in all things high-tech. Whether the firm is distributing IP Telephony, audio and video conferencing or Unified Communications (News - Alert) (UC) technology, many different companies have turned to Jenne for their services.
Over the last few years the company has forged a number of different alliances in the tech sector, with partnerships with companies like ADTRAN (News - Alert) Bluesocket. The organization also recently signed a contract with Panasonic to help distribute its i-PRO surveillance cameras. These partnerships have led to the company being recognized as a primary representative of many different fields, and led the company to hosting its first ever Powering Partners Summit.
This conference took place from April 16th to the 19th in Tucson Arizona and featured several major companies, as well as high profile speakers such as economist Ken Mayland and former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz. The conference focused heavily on how Value Added Resellers (VAR) can help take their various pioneering technologies and use them more effectively in a growing market place. Jenne was also able to show how these VARs could use their company’s proprietary “High Touch” model.
Jenne’s “high touch” model means that VARs who work with the company will have access to the company’s suite of tools that will aid their clients in their Value Added Reseller roles. They will also have contact with employees dedicated to support of these tools.
This first annual summit was a way for Jenne to meet and interact with others with which it looks to do business, and demonstrate the tools they believe will help these VAR companies better serve their clients. Jenne hoped the summit would allow many partnerships to form with companies such as Avaya, Aastra and Jabra (News - Alert) in attendance.
Jenne also demonstrated the Jenne Solutions designer, an online tool allowing resellers to upload, maintain and view network design solutions in real time. The company also highlighted its Contract Management Tool. This allows VARs to easily track when a particular service contract is about to expire, making it easier to renew.
