Smart business leaders know that one of the fastest ways to get ahead and grow your business is by partnering with like-minded companies. When both sides bring something of value to the table, it’s a sure bet that the new alliance will benefit everyone.
So it was likely with that thought in mind that Digium (News - Alert), the creator, primary developer and sponsor of the Asterisk project -- the world's most widely used open source communications software -- announced that Jenne, a leading value-added distributor of business telephony and technology products, has joined the Digium Cloud Agent Program as a Master Agent.
"The demand for cloud-deployed solutions continues to gain momentum in the channel," said Patrick Howard, senior director of cloud solutions for Jenne. "More and more Jenne channel partners are asking for cloud solutions every day. Our new cloud partnership with Digium allows Jenne to expand our cloud portfolio, meet growing demand and create new business."
For its part, Digium was equally pleased with the new partnership, as it, too, stands to reap significant gains.
"As a valued, existing distributor, it is particularly exciting to welcome Jenne into our Cloud Master Agent program, allowing them to expand their portfolio of solutions with our hosted PBX and SIP trunking services," said Steve Harvey, vice president of worldwide sales for Digium, in a statement. "Switchvox (News - Alert) Cloud was developed with Digium's premises-based Switchvox PBX. Resellers already selling and supporting on-premises Switchvox products are able to leverage their expertise to rapidly deploy these cloud-based solutions to their SMB customers with little to no learning curve."
More than a hosted VoIP PBX (News - Alert), Switchvox Cloud is an affordably priced, full-featured UC cloud solution. Digium's "all features included" pricing model for Switchvox Cloud makes it simple to choose and deploy an advanced business phone system. This new agreement allows Jenne's partners the opportunity to expand their portfolios with Digium's Switchvox Cloud Unified Communications (News - Alert) (UC) business phone system and SIP trunking services, while maximizing commissions in the rapidly growing cloud services market.
