Jenne Design Center Enables Resellers To Upload, View And Maintain Multi-Vendor Network Design Configurations


Jenne Inc., a leading value-added distributor of IP telephony, audio and video conferencing, data networking, and IT security products, announced the launch of its sophisticated online systems Design Center. The Jenne Design Center provides Avaya enterprise-oriented resellers with the ability to upload, view and maintain network design configurations for Avaya -- and in real time.

The portal, which launched last month and is now available to Avaya authorized Jenne resellers, provides VARs with the capability to build a complete VoIP solution based on customized product and pricing criteria. By accessing the Jenne Design Center, resellers can stay informed 24/7 as a solution design progresses and elect to receive notifications as each phase is completed.

"The Jenne Design Center is a fantastic new tool that will help our reseller customers stay up to speed on each step of their solution design," commented Jim Karaffa, director, training and technical services, Jenne. "Over the course of any system design, there are many elements that come into play: pricing, SAP upload, testing and of course configuration changes. Our new portal proactively ensures the entire team stays informed anytime a design specialist touches the design."

There are many advantages to using the Jenne Design Center. Since it automatically streamlines the process of creating a design, it can dramatically shorten the sales cycle, enabling resellers to reduce time to revenue. By asking the user fundamental questions about what the design must achieve -- for example, whether or not it is an upgrade and how many extensions are required -- it ensures conformity to create a high quality design. Following is a summary of key benefits:

  • Interactive experience ensures accuracy and conformity of fundamental design requirements
  • Centralized repository of documentation enables teams to access the same information, including design notes, topology, customer data and other information
  • Automatic notification and feedback mechanisms keep teams up to date on each phase of the project
  • Design scenarios can easily be implemented, tested and evaluated, providing resellers with the right choice of options
  • Designs can be blended to include multiple vendors in a single solution.

"By using the Jenne Design Center, I can instantly create a configuration with hardware, software, support and services," commented Jeremy T. Chandonia, corporate technical supervisor of Houston-based Enterprise System Corporation. "I am able to enter a design request at anytime and I am able to keep informed of the progress of my request. This allows me to better utilize my time and better serve my customers."
