Motorola ups ante with Alloy Computer Products

Specialist distributor to bring vendor's new mobility solution into the market

Communications vendor, Motorola, has partnered with Alloy Computer Products to bring a new solution to the market.

The vendor's Total Enterprise Access and Mobility Voice-over-Wireless-LAN, or TEAM VoWLAN, range of products offers customers a choice of servers and Windows Mobile VoWLAN smartphones.

Along with toll-quality telephony services that integrate with the corporate PBX and enterprise-grade push-to-talk (PTT), the TEAM solution also interoperates with existing two-way radio systems.

Motorola Australia and New Zealand managing director, Vince Chiappazzo, said Alloy was be the only distributor to take this solution to market and was chosen on its specialised skill sets.

“When you have a look at the TEAM solution, it requires a degree of knowledge,” Chiappanzzo said. “Our other distributors have a broader focus to their relationship with us, so there won’t be any crossover following the appointment.”

Motorola will take the solution to Alloy’s existing partner base, but also wants to recruit additional partners going forward, according to Chiappanzzo.

“It’s a new product range for us. We’re targeting any organisation with the kind of mobile workers who still might be in the building, but not tied to a desk. Hospital environments, warehousing and retail, for instance.”

In a release, Alloy product development manager, Greg Round, said the distributor saw benefits for organisations with the solution.

“Businesses want to increase workforce productivity and drive down operation costs. The TEAM solution meets those needs by turning the desk phone and desktop into a pocket size virtual office,” Round said in the release.
