Avnet Computer Marketing (Tempe, Ariz.), Hall-Mark Division's Intel Architecture Business Unit (IA), a leading AS/400 value-added distributor, is now delivering a unified messaging solution option to its resellers through a partnership with e-Information exchange solution provider AVT Corp. (Kirkland, Wash.).

Under terms of the deal, Avnet/Hall-Mark will distribute AVT’s CallXpress unified messaging for Lotus Domino and Microsoft Exchange solutions. CallXpress, which runs on the AS/400, enables users to access and manage voice, fax, and email messages virtually anywhere and at anytime using devices such as PCs, wireless phones and the Internet.

"Lotus and IBM resellers source Notes, AS/400 and Netfinity servers through value-added distributors (VADs) such as Avnet/Hall-Mark, the largest IBM AS/400 VAD in the United States,” says Timothy Wudi, president AVT CTI Software Group. “It was a natural next step for us to develop a relationship with Avnet Computer Marketing to distribute our unified messaging solutions through its extensive network of data resellers.”

The Intel Architecture Business Unit, a division of Avnet Computer Marketing, will now be offering a complete turnkey package, including AVT's CallXpress unified messaging software, Dialogic voice cards and a choice of reliable hardware platform options including, the IBM AS/400, IBM Netfinity and Compaq ProLiant servers.

"Our resellers selling Lotus Notes and Microsoft Exchange can now extend the value of these collaborative environments to enable customers to manage voice and fax messages along with email in a single, common interface," said Jeff Bawol, vice president and general manager of the Intel Architecture Business Unit.
