SPS Update About Avaya Announcements
SPS has supported our clients through changes, disruptions and evolution within the communications technology marketplace. With the recent announcement regarding Avaya filing for Chapter 11 protection, our clients remain at the center of our focus. As we have for nearly three decades, SPS will provide trusted guidance and superior technical capabilities to ensure the best business outcomes.
We have confidence in Avaya’s technology and the value it brings to businesses. Rest assured, we are here to support our clients through changes that may come as a result of Avaya’s efforts to rework its capital structure. As a systems integrator with a wide breadth of competencies across solution areas, SPS is highly capable of helping clients find success regardless of the path forward they choose to take.
While Avaya’s business is running well and its operating profitability is improving each year, its capital structure is outdated and supports a business model from which it has since evolved. Restructuring its debt will allow Avaya to maintain a healthy and manageable debt level, increasing its financial flexibility so that it can continue to innovate and evolve as an industry leader. Many companies have filed for Chapter 11 protection and continue to operate successfully today, including General Motors, Marvel Studios and United Airlines.
During this restructuring, Avaya will continue to operate, sell and support customers, with a focus on the future and dedication to innovation. SPS will continue to sell and support Avaya products. Given the overall intrinsic value of the technology and the significant installed base of customers, we strongly believe that the core solutions Avaya is offering today will remain viable and supported.
We have developed a multi-phase approach to keep our clients informed and support their needs, including:
- A resource site, which we will use to share updates.
- An informational webinar on Tuesday, January 24, at 1 pm ET. This is the first in an ongoing series to ensure clients have the most up-to-date information.
- A 10-city Tour to engage our clients and proactively address questions (dates and locations will be posted soon).
SPS is here to understand any possible implications of this development and help clients adjust their roadmap to success as needed. If you have any questions, please click here or call us 888.777.7280.
