To seize the significant growth opportunity within
Unified Communications (UC), Jabra and Logitech have entered into a
distribution agreement, where Logitech will be offering a number of select
Jabra headsets under the co-branded name “Logitech powered by Jabra.”
From July 2011, Logitech
will sell select Jabra UC headsets to Logitech’s channel partners and business
customers, initially in the North American market. As a second step, later in
the year, the co-branded headsets will be rolled out globally.
By combining the channel reach and broadly known brand of
Logitech with high-quality Jabra headsets, Jabra has taken an
important first step in significantly expanding the presence of Jabra headsets
in all relevant North American sales channels where Jabra headsets are
currently not present.
Jabra will continue to sell its wide portfolio of Jabra
branded headsets to its current channel partners and the enterprise sales team will continue to
address large UC opportunities with the Jabra branded headsets.
“Jabra’s intention is to be a leader in the UC space
and the agreement with Logitech is an important step in achieving this. We are
very pleased to announce the agreement with Logitech which we believe will
lead to more people using Jabra headsets for their UC solutions,” said
Jabra CEO Mogens Elsberg.
“This collaboration with GN Netcom will enable
Logitech to be a full solution provider for Unified Communications,” said
Gerald P. Quindlen, Logitech president and CEO. “Businesses will now have
a single company for a full range of UC solutions – from the meeting room with
LifeSize video conferencing end points and infrastructure products to PCs, Macs
and tablets with webcams, headsets and speakerphones.”
