Novus To Distribute Sennheiser VoIP And Microsoft Lync-optimized Headsets

Distribution agreement encompasses complete portfolio of Sennheiser’s premium office call center and VoIP wired and wireless headsets

FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Novus, a boutique telecommunications and IP distributor, will expand its offering of Microsoft Lync-optimized and VoIP headsets through a new distribution agreement with Sennheiser, recognized internationally for its premium audio equipment.

The partnership brings the entire Sennheiser portfolio of wired and wireless office call center and VoIP headsets into the Novus fold, including the Circle Series and DW Series. Established in 1945 in Wedemark, Germany, Sennheiser is the acknowledged world leader in microphone technology, RF-wireless and infrared sound transmission, headphone transducer technology, and in the development of active noise-cancellation.

“Sennheiser is an international innovator in best-in-breed audio equipment and headsets, and we’re proud to lead this respected company into the Lync world,” said Chris Meehan, Managing Partner, Novus, LLC. “Our goal is to expand Sennheiser’s product reach in Microsoft Lync environments, and bring its advanced wired and wireless headset technology to the call center and office masses.”

Sennheiser headsets are now included in the ongoing Novus Endpoint Affiliate Program, which incentivizes Microsoft resellers to join Novus’ growing Lync channel community. Microsoft Partners can earn cash back and special discounts on Sennheiser Lync headsets purchased through Novus for their Microsoft Lync Enterprise Voice implementations. And those whose customer leads culminate in sales of Sennheiser headsets will earn rebates for each unit sold – $4 per wired headset and $6 per wireless headset.
