(Sao Paulo, Brazil) Zentyal, developer of easy IT for small business, announced its partnership agreement with Leucotron today. The Brazilian company, one of the leading providers of telephony solutions in the country with a network of 400 resellers, has relied on Zentyal to develop its new leading product L.Connect.

Thanks to L.Connect, 20,000 SMB customers of Leucotron who already have a switchboard (or PBX), can outsource monitoring and preventive maintenance of their systems easily and safely, and optimize the management of telephone traffic, generating automatic alerts when a resource is underutilized and when an update is needed. This device, installed by the local Leucotron reseller and under 24/7 surveillance by the Leucotron support team, ensures maximum availability of their PBX.

Zentyal has all the features needed to create the perfect and highly reliable infrastructure network, with high availability. Relying on this technology offers security and peace to L.Connect customer,” says Dilson Frota, CTO of Leucotron. “From the first contact, the Zentyal team has been open to our ideas and open to collaborate on the various options that have been presented, always willing to help us meet the needs of our customers,” Frota adds.

With the release of L.Connect, Leucotron, awarded as one of the most innovative companies in Brazil, has reintroduced a unique product to the market. In addition to the advantages offered to customers – optimization and maximum availability of telephone services any time – the company introduces the concept of managed services in their portfolio of products and services. This allows Leucotron to take their business to a new level, where any SMB client, regardless of size, can count on service and support at enterprise level.

We are very happy to announce this agreement and the L.Connect launch after an intense year of collaboration with Leucotron and at a time when we are moving thoroughly in the Brazilian market,” said José Ramón Padrón, Channel Sales Manager for Iberia and LatAm at Zentyal. “Having a Premier Partner such as Leucotron is a major boost. L.Connect provides an excellent example of how Zentyal partners can create their own business model and their own products based on Zentyal technologies,” Padrón concludes.

Zentyal offers the Premier Partner level mainly for companies who want to provide services or products based on Zentyal technologies on a wider territorial context, at the very least national. Partnership levels are completed with Registered and Professional categories. Partners in this two categories are provided packed Zentyal solutions that offer local IT providers all the products and tools needed to manage the IT infrastructure of their SMB clients, from the server to the cloud. All in an easy way and within the managed services model.

In 2012 Brazil was already one of the main markets for Zentyal. In 2013 the company has reinforced its commitment to the Brazilian market and to the creation of a network of partners. The substantial number of potential SMB clients – 99% of the 6 million Brazilian companies, difficulty of SMBs to access funding as well as the deficit of skilled IT professionals are all factors that promote the adoption of solutions based on Zentyal through local providers. Its ease of installation, configuration and maintenance along with monthly affordable prices allow SMBs to access professional IT infrastructure.
