Voiceflex has become Unify’s first UK Cloud Service Provider in a move that gives the SIP and hosted telephony carrier the ‘stand out factor’ according to Sales and Marketing Director Paul Taylor.
“The hosted space is crowded with a hundred-plus products in the market,” he said. “By launching this application our partners will continue to avoid the me-too environment.”
The deal enables Voiceflex to deploy Circuit, Unify’s cloud-based collaboration solution and the OpenScape Cloud application to channel partners.
The partnership builds on Voiceflex’s 13 year pedigree as a SIP carrier and month-on-month double digit growth in its SIP trunks business.
The link-up also bolsters Voiceflex’s addition of a hosted telephony application called Nebula into its portfolio four years ago as a standalone non-UC application.
“I have been monitoring Circuit as a standalone UC application and as a SIP carrier the possibilities are endless, not only for Circuit with OpenScape and Nebula, but also Circuit as the UC app for on-premise solutions,” added Taylor.
Unify’s VP for Channel Sales UK&I Rob Wiles commented: “The hosted telephony space is a race to the bottom in terms of pricing and vendors are struggling to provide value. This partnership with Voiceflex ensures that together we deliver competitive stand-out collaboration applications.”
