Old Lyme, CT. – Sennheiser, a leading provider of premium headset solutions, announces it has been awarded Preferred Partner Status from NACR, a global provider of best-in-class communications solutions and a major integration partner for industry-leading solutions from Avaya, Microsoft, Interactive Intelligence and Cisco.
This honor from NACR is indicative of the business community's shift toward more superior sound quality in contact center environments. Sennheiser, an international developer of high-performance audio equipment, celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, and is focused on delivering premium audio technologies to the global marketplace, including enterprise and call center environments.
“More and more organizations are beginning to understand the critical role that high quality audio can play in a call center environment,” said Bill Whearty, vice president, sales and marketing, CCO, Americas, Sennheiser Electronic Corp. “Clear and intelligible audio is mission critical in any meaningful customer engagement and should be considered much more than an add-on appliance. Our new MB Pro wireless call center solution, for example, sets a new industry standard for call centers, enabling associates to move freely around the office while still experiencing crystal clear audio."
NACR designates Preferred Partners according to a series of tiers, based on criteria such as national presence and regional support, ease of doing business, revenue, lead generation, parts support, technical training, and customer service. The program is designed to identify and acknowledge top channel partners, encouraging ongoing relationships with those companies for the purpose of proliferating the highest quality solutions among the NACR's end-customers.
NACR serves more than 5,500 customers ranging from small businesses to Fortune 100 and global enterprises. One of the largest global solution providers in the marketplace, NACR has been a long-time advocate of Sennheiser's unified communications headsets, which are deployed at some of the world's most prestigious enterprise installations.
