AVANT partners with SD-WAN vendor

02 Apr 2019

Open Systems has added AVANT Communications, an IT management platform provider, as a global channel partner.

AVANT will gain access to the Open Systems SD-WAN solution as well as its solutions for networking, security, around-the-clock operations and a monitoring portal with AI-assisted automation and engineers ensuring network performance and control.

The Open Systems Partner Network programme helps partners make strategic and long-term choices with end clients. 

“Open Systems has grown and matured organically for years selling through a direct model. Shifting to a channel-first strategy means partners will be able to take advantage of our industry-leading experience and maturity,” says Open Systems chief revenue officer Matthew Krieg. 

“We are thrilled to have AVANT as our global partner. This partnership will enable AVANT to offer a customer-proven and secure SD-WAN as a service solution.”

With Open Systems, AVANT enables Trusted Advisors to help customers scale, simplify and manage network and security operations to help increase business agility, improve user experiences and optimise resources.

“SD-WAN is one of the most disruptive new technologies in IT today. AVANT’s channel sales enablement methodology will help Trusted Advisors learn how to leverage the Open Systems solution,” said Jen Gallego, EVP Sales West at AVANT Communications. “The AVANT channel is a perfect fit for Open Systems: a swift to implement, simple to manage and highly secure solution for enterprises. With this partnership, we are able to help our clients solve some of their toughest challenges by harnessing the disruptive power of new technologies.”

AVANT represents regional Trusted Advisors throughout the world that, for decades in some cases, have been doing business in complementary service categories with the enterprise accounts that Open Systems wants to do business with. This agreement immediately enables these agencies to offer Open Systems to their existing client base.
