Telanetix (News - Alert), an IP
solutions provider offering telepresence and VoIP services to business markets, has launched a new product with Costco Wholesale, a national and international operator of membership warehouses.
Telanetix’s AccessLine Division is to offer a combined business phone service and business phone system package to Costco's Membership, targeted at members running small businesses with five or fewer employees.
This segment represents over 60 percent of all registered businesses in the U.S.
AccessLine Digital Phone Service comes with a cutting-edge phone system complete with all necessary phones and bundled with the phone service itself. The package is packed with features that make the whole purchase and installation process easy for the Costco business member, such as an equipment installment purchase plan rather than a large upfront charge, one point of contact rather than dealing with a service provider and an equipment provider, plug and play installation, and service quality monitoring.
"At Costco, we are constantly looking for ways to provide to our members the best combination of value and quality," said Jon Zweig, Costco senior director.
"Working with Telanetix's AccessLine division will enable us to supply members with a simple yet powerful business phone service package that meets this goal."
"Costco's decision to provide their members this service opportunity is another example of our growing success in the small business segment," noted Doug Johnson, president and CEO of Telanetix.
"This segment has a strong need for the feature-rich yet cost effective solution that our VoIP
phone services can provide. With the Costco decision, we are clearly taking our success in this growing portion of the business communications marketplace to the next level,” added Johnson.
Telanetix solutions meet the real-world communications demands of its customers with an industry-leading value proposition. The company's telepresence offering, Digital Presence, creates fully immersive and interactive meeting environments that incorporate voice, video and data from multiple locations into a single environment.
The company's voice offerings, marketing under the "AccessLine" brand, give companies flexible calling solutions, a simple installation experience, and a greater range of support options than traditional telecom providers.
