Meet Nuvias UC Skype for Business expert:

Andrew Graves

Andrew Graves - Solution Sales Director at Nuvias UC

I’ve been in the IT industry since 1999, working exclusively within distribution. I joined SIPHON in 2015 and have enjoyed immersing myself in all things Unified Communications and more recently, around Skype for Business in particular.

We could see that Microsoft were rapidly going to become a dominant player in the UC space some time ago and, as a result, developed an in-house Microsoft practice. This was designed to deliver value-added services to our channel partners so that they could use these to augment their capabilities where required, or help them accelerate their own Microsoft UC offering to their customers.

For Microsoft partners with limited Skype for Business knowledge, this enables them to tap into the market opportunity today without having to invest time and money to develop their own skills in-house.

In addition to the value-added services we can offer around the Microsoft ecosystem, we are also a leading pan-EMEA distributor of a range of Microsoft-certified hardware vendors including Polycom, AudioCodes and Yealink, and have developed an industry-leading device provisioning and management platform in-house - Dovetail - which is ideal for managing an estate of end points within a Microsoft UC environment.

Cisco logo


Cisco helps seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the unconnected. An integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships, working together to identify our customers' needs and provide solutions that fuel their success.

We have preserved this keen focus on solving business challenges since our founding in 1984. Len Bosack and wife Sandy Lerner, both working for Stanford University, wanted to email each other from their respective offices, but technological shortcomings did not allow such communication. A technology had to be invented to deal with disparate local area protocols, and as a result of solving their challenge, the multiprotocol router was born.
