Cloud business communications and IT provider Broadview Networks has announced that it has partnered with carrier agent-consultant TelcoSolutions.
The two companies will offer data connections, Internet service and Unified Communications (News - Alert) services across the U.S.
“We are thrilled to add OfficeSuite to our product portfolio. Broadview’s solution is the only one I know of that is 100 percent in the cloud. Any feature or service can be accessed or changed from any Internet-connected device, even my smartphone,” said Travis Taylor, principal at TelcoSolutions. “That is a clear advantage for us when we are working with customers to help them be more mobile and flexible.”
Broadview brings its OfficeSuite Phone (News - Alert) cloud-based UC system, OfficeSuite HD Meeting Cloud conferencing system, OfficeSuite hosted email, and OfficeSuite PrivateCloud virtualized data center.
“Broadview’s growing presence throughout the agent channel is a true testament to our quality products, reliable service, and generous commission structure. TelcoSolutions is a well-respected organization. We look forward to our new partnership and to enabling more agents nationwide to grow their business and provide their customers with the best solutions possible,” Donna Wenk, Broadview senior vice president of alternative channels, said.
TelcoSolutions is an example of a “master agent” that plays a matchmaker role between business customers and communications providers. TelcoSolutions helps Broadview get more customers, and the customers in turn get better deals than they could by directly negotiating with Broadview.
With the growing trend of moving traditional data center and communications services to the cloud, both companies look to be in a good position in the future.
TelcoSolutions sees the deal as evidence of its commitment to customers.
“We are advocates for our customers. They rely on us, and we rely on the top providers in the industry. Partnering with Broadview will allow us to be even more competitive and better serve our customers,” TelcoSolutions said in a statement.
