Mitel Networks has bestowed Ethan Group with its Asia Pacific Service Provider Innovation of the Year Award.
The Australian provider was presented with the accolade during Mitel Networks’ annual MPower Asia Pacific Conference in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Ethan Group achieved the top spot in the category for its Ethoria Unified-Communications-as-a-Service platform.
Ethan Group CEO, Paul Kawtal, who recently stepped into the newly created role at the service provider, accepted the award.
“Receiving this prestigious award is for us recognition that the investment we have made for many years in becoming a leader in the UC industry has paid off,” he said.
According to Mitel Asia Pacific vice president, Gwilym Funnell, the service provider stood out from the other nominees for their commitment to Mitel Networks as their unified communications (UC) partner.
“Mitel has had had a long relationship with Ethan Group and it is their attention to customer needs, their vision for how communication landscape is evolving and their ability to move with it through Ethoria that has led to them winning this award,” he said.
Although the Ethoria platform by the Ethan Group has only been on the market since January 2012, Funnell is already convinced that it is “the future for UC.”
“Ethoria is a platform that provides a single point for businesses to rely without having to manage multiple service providers,” he said.
Since its launch in Australia, Ethoria has been deploying, supporting and managing Mitel UC solutions for clients such as Infrastructure NSW, LandMark White and International Power Australia.
