FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Dec. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Harbor Networks has been named to ShoreTel's Circle of Excellence again for the partner year 2015 after earning the same status in 2014. The award recognizes partners for exceptional achievement in areas including net billings, new cloud bookings, proficiency with advanced applications, and customer satisfaction.
While Harbor Networks has consistently been a ShoreTel Circle of Excellence Partner since the partnership began 8 years ago, 2015 signified a new level of achievement for Harbor Networks, earning the distinction in two separate categories. Not only was Harbor again named as a Top 10 partner for the on-site ShoreTel solution, but also as the #5 partner in the Cloud Based category.
"Being named to the Circle of Excellence is the highest accolade ShoreTel partners can receive and each year less than one-half of one percent of all partners earns this distinction," said David Petts, senior vice president of worldwide sales at ShoreTel. "We're proud of the diverse list of partners who surpassed the strict criteria required to earn Circle of Excellence status in 2015."
The distinction added to an already overwhelmingly successful 2015 year for Harbor Networks after earning Platinum Partner status, the highest partner achievement level, from ShoreTel for the first time in company history. Harbor was the only ShoreTel partner in the Northeast to earn both distinctions in 2015, largely due to a loyal customer base that continues to help Harbor grow. "We are wrapping up another year of learning how we can provide better service and greater value to our customers," said Greg Bertschmann, president at Harbor Networks. "When we do that well, the sales naturally follow, and then come flattering awards like Shoretel's Circle of Excellence. I am very proud of the bright hard working and dedicated team of people I get to work with that make any such recognition possible."
