Sunrise Computer Systems, an integration reseller, has joined Bay Networks' authorised partner program. Sunrise managing director Phil Howson said the partnership offers the company increased assistance from Bay Networks in the form of pre-sales support lines, access to Bay Networks' Web site for its authorised partners, Partnerweb, sales tools and training.
"We've had a strategic relationship with Bay Networks for several years now and they are coming up with innovative technology," said Howson. "We want to work with leading edge vendors and we feel that Bay Networks is one of those."
He said the authorised partner status means that Sunrise now has a technical relationship with Bay Networks' staff and enables them to work together strategically on certain accounts.
"To the customer it means a higher level of service in terms of our technicians being trained in the use of Bay products and our ability to convey to the client base and the market the latest tech- nology that people like Bay are coming up with," Howson said.
