Distributor Collaboration Technologies has given the channel operations of web conferencing player Rhub Communications a massive boost by inking a deal with Finnish giant Onninen Oy.
Collaboration Technologies was formed two years ago, and was appointed as Rhub's Master Distributor for the northern Europe region shortly thereafter. The north London-based outfit has now recruited materials and services titan Onninen to serve as a distributor.
Harri Alasalmi, business communications sales manager at Onninen Finland, said: "Rhub fits well into our sales and Reseller programme for many reasons, and we are thrilled to join Collaboration Technologies as a Channel Distribution Partner."
The Finnish firm claims to employ 2,800 people in offices spread across Finland, Sweden, Norway, Poland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Group turnover is reportedly more than €1.5bn (£1.3bn) and Collaboration Technologies claims its Nordic comrade serves more than 100 resellers and tens of thousands of customers.
Collaboration Technologies managing director Phil Suter said: "Onninen Oy is a strategic appointment, and well placed to capitalise on the growing demand and enquiries for Rhub's range of products and solutions throughout Europe."
