"We're consistently hearing from our agents that customers recognize the benefits of moving to the cloud," said Alan Sandler, founder and managing partner of Sandler Partners. "What concerns customers most is finding a way to do so at a pace that's right for them, and they want to ensure they're not handing over critical aspects of their business to non-proven providers—that's why they choose Mitel."

"The move to cloud communications is well underway and Mitel understands that businesses of all sizes seek reliability, flexibility and security as they move forward," said Jon Brinton, executive vice president and general manager of Mitel Cloud Services. "We've made significant enhancements to our cloud partner program to further support resellers and the master agent community as they guide customers toward the most broadly deployed business solution for cloud-based, unified communications."
