GREENVILLE, SC - January 18, 2011 - ScanSource Communications, a leading value-added distributor of communications products and a sales unit of ScanSource Inc., {NASDAQ: SCSC}, has expanded its distribution relationship with ShoreTel and will now offer the company’s complete product portfolio of IP phone systems with fully integrated unified communications (UC).

Through this expanded partnership of ShoreTel’s communications solutions and ScanSource Communications’ value-added services and support, resellers will be able to meet their end-user customers’ increasing demand for IP and UC solutions. ShoreTel’s product offering includes IP phone systems with built-in UC and integrated contact center capabilities. These solutions are designed to be simple to deploy, easy to integrate, and have a lower total cost of ownership than competing solutions.
