Strategic alliance promotes collaboration on innovative new options for improving the Canadian customer experience

Vancouver, Canada – August 13, 2018 – Annex Pro, North America’s next-generation VAR, today announced a multi-year strategic partnership with Avid® in Canada. The agreement is designed to bring Annex Pro and Avid into a more collaborative relationship with the goal of delivering the best experience to their mutual customers.

This agreement will help customers in Canada in a couple of ways. First, by having deeper insight into Avid’s technology roadmap, Annex Pro will have a better understanding into Avid’s technology objectives, which will help customers make better buying decisions today and in planning for the future. Second, Annex Pro will have premier access to Avid engineering experts when needed to ensure that technical and workflow issues can be evaluated and resolved more quickly.

“As Avid grows, we continue to develop our products and solutions, our programs, and our partnerships. We thank Annex Pro for their long-standing loyalty and commitment to Avid and we look forward to continuing our mutual success as Partners,” says Tom Cordiner, Senior Vice President, Avid Global Sales.

“This partnership marks a significant step forward for Annex Pro. It’s a key component of our growth strategy, and combined with decades of in-house experience, gives us the additional tools needed to develop and deliver innovative solutions to customers,” says Kerry Corlett, CEO and Founder of Annex Pro.

The goal of this multi-year strategic agreement is to deliver innovative new options to customers and to continue to strengthen the relationship between Avid and Annex Pro.

“There are many reasons to be excited about Avid these days. For example, Avid has worked closely with Dolby to integrate ATMOS workflow within Pro Tools to meet the new Netflix and Amazon requirements.
