GREENVILLE, SC - August 04, 2009 - Catalyst Telecom, a sales unit of ScanSource, Inc. {NASDAQ: SCSC}, and value-added distributor of voice, video and data convergence solutions, has created a Virtual Demo Center (VDC) for resellers looking to easily demonstrate the benefits of the small to medium business communications products they have to offer, including Avaya IP Office and SMB-oriented technologies from Juniper Networks, Extreme Networks, and SonicWALL, among others.

With the VDC, resellers are able to provide an in-depth, live demo to potential end-user customers without having to carry bulky equipment from site to site. The VDC enables these resellers to cost-effectively demonstrate the benefits of the communications equipment through a secure Internet login that showcases the advantages of IP Office and its associated applications.

“We created the Virtual Demo Center so that resellers could have yet another sales tool to illustrate the value of the communications solutions they have to offer, allowing them to continue to differentiate themselves from the competition,” said John Gaillard, vice president of sales, Catalyst Telecom. “We believe providing a live demonstration of these solutions will increase the probability of the reseller’s end-user prospect signing off on a proposal.”

The Virtual Demo Center will be available September 14, 2009. For more information on the VDC, resellers should contact their Catalyst Telecom sales representative. And for additional information on Catalyst Telecom, please visit
