Sagem-Interstar Debuts Enhanced 4-Tier Channel Partner Program

MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sagem-Interstar Inc. (Sagem Communications), the global leader in advanced fax solutions for IP networks (, today announced the launch of an enhanced 4-tier channel partner program aimed at delivering improved training, certification programs and support, as well as increased marketing and business development assistance to the systems integrator community. It encompasses diverse levels of commitment, and provides compelling rewards for current and new partners with a flexible business model focused on deploying Fax over IP (FoIP) solutions as part of a comprehensive Unified Communications (UC) and emerging Enterprise Content Management (ECM) strategy.

"At Sagem-Interstar, we embrace the Channel Partner Program and its members as a crucial and integral part of our ongoing leadership and success in the rapidly expanding IP fax server segment," said Jean Champagne, General Manager, Sagem-Interstar. "In turn, we pledge our full support to all partners by offering them truly innovative products and a dedicated support structure, so they may succeed and grow their sales revenue stream."

The Sagem-Interstar 4-tier channel partner program targets the current partner eco-system, new systems integrators and value-added resellers serving all business sectors. The channel partner program has been enhanced to encompass the following 4 levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. The program is notably beneficial to new partners, since its training and business development programs are designed to reduce the risk of bringing on a new product line and partnering with a new vendor. Furthermore, dedicated account management, multi-level support agreements, competitive pricing and flexibility with the new 4-tier structure are key advantages.
