HBT has been recognised for its work in helping SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) in the Midlands benefit from unified communications (UC) technology. HBT has been selling and supporting UC technology from German vendor Swyx since 2005 and has been voted ‘Reseller of the Year’ to reward its success in deploying its software-based technology that is ideal for growing companies.

Zamurad Hussain, Director at HBT Communications says, “We’re delighted to have been named “Reseller of the Year”. Swyx’s flexible and innovative software based UC offering enables us to offer our customers a solution that is easy for them to integrate with the rest of their IT applications and meets the increasing demand from companies that want to improve customer service, boost efficiencies and reduce costs. The award also reflects the hard work and diligence of our sales and support teams, and is recognition of HBT’s longstanding commitment to Swyx.”

He adds, “We already support thousands of local business with both IT and communications solutions and Swyx is just another example of how the technology we deliver helps revolutionise how a business operates and provides a speedy return on investment.”
