The awards ceremony took place in Johannesburg last week as part of Avaya's annual PartnerConnect Conference.
Siva Pather, Dimension Data South Africa General Manager, Customer Interactive Solutions, said: “To win Avaya’s coveted Partner of the Year award for the third consecutive year is testimony to the investment Dimension Data ploughs into the Avaya relationship.
“This continued venture bodes well not only for the future of our relationship with Avaya, but more importantly, it augurs well for our clients who have invested in the partnership between Dimension Data and Avaya.”
The Avaya Partner of the Year 2012 award was for the Middle East, Africa and Turkey regions. The ICT company also received the Avaya Network Implementation of the Year 2012, for work it carried out on Johannesburg's Wits University campus.
Michael Abendanon, Dimension Data South Africa General Manager, Network Integration and Converged Communications, said: “We are extremely proud to have achieved these accolades from Avaya, which underscore the hard work and dedication shown by Dimension Data sales and support teams.
“We continue to guide and advise our clients who are interested in the seamless integration of video, voice and data communications as they aim to increase efficiency and enhance their competitive advantage.”
Technology research firms such as Gartner, Frost & Sullivan, and T3i Group recognise Avaya as the global market share leader in several industry categories, including unified communications, unified messaging, contact centres and SME telephony systems.
