Harrogate, North Yorkshire, 18 November 2003. POST cti, a Value Added

Distributor of standards-based communications products, and IDL, UK Master

Distributor for Interactive Intelligence Inc. and a voice applications

specialist, announce today a partnership agreement and a series of

jointly-funded marketing initiatives to promote the uptake of

standards-based telephony amongst the developer, reseller and system

integrator communities.

POST cti and IDL are currently planning a series of nationwide training

courses and partner events to launch the new initiative over the coming

months. Details of courses and events will be posted on the POST web site

at and on the IDL web site at

The partnership agreement is based on a recognition that while businesses

are increasingly demanding standards-based, multi-channel communications

solutions, resellers and system integrators often need specialist support in

order to deliver these solutions reliably and on time.

By combining skill sets, POST cti and IDL believe they can cater for these

needs. POST cti supplies an extensive range of standards-based

communications building blocks from PC boards to server platforms and

application development software - as well as support and training services.

As a Value Added Distributor, it will not, however, create end user

solutions. That's where IDL's application software expertise and ten years

of open telephony integration experience come in - helping resellers and SIs

create best-in-class solutions that deliver extensive benefits such as cost

savings, improved productivity and enhanced customer service.



Formed in 1997, POST CTI is a Value Added Distributor (VAD) of

standard-based communications building blocks from leading manufacturers

such as Intel, Envox, HP, Scansoft and Nuance. POST CTI is the only VAD of

Intel® Telecom Products in the UK and the largest VAD for Intel telecom

products in EMEA.

POST CTI provides Value Added Resellers, Systems Integrators and Developers

with a single convenient source for communications technologies. In

addition to providing a broad and competitively-priced product selection,

the company offers custom system integration services and advice, finance

options, sales training and marketing/technical educational seminars.
