Organizations of all sizes don’t need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to updating their communication systems. China-based Yeastar (News - Alert) Information Technology works to help companies use their existing legacy and analog equipment and technology to migrate to new and better solutions.
TMC CEO Rich Tehrani (News - Alert) caught up with Stephen Corrigan, VP of Sales, U.S. for Yeastar, at the recent ITEXPO Florida 2016 event. Corrigan said the company has been focusing on sales, marketing and expansion in the U.S. recently and is building its brand through partnerships and channel relationships.
“It’s a big thing when you’re revamping your whole communication system, so we can do it in a piecemeal way,” said Corrigan. Yeastar’s approach is to come up with individualized solutions that enable their customers to upgrade their systems one step at a time, at a speed they are comfortable with from a cost and management standpoint.
The company develops and manufactures its own IP-PBX (News - Alert) and VoIP gateways marketed to service providers as a way to help businesses cost effectively upgrade their communications systems. In November, Yeastar released its N1 Telephone System, which relies on legacy analog phones as its main endpoints while offering flexible interface designs and increased scalability. The system also includes eight expansion ports for connecting VoIP gateways to analog phones.
That same month, Yeastar announced a partnership with call center reporting and monitoring software company QueueMetrics Live. The companies are offering a software solution for Asterisk (News - Alert)-based PBX systems in business ands office environments. The relationship effectively integrates the Yeastar MyPBX solution with the call management platform.
According to Corrigan, Yeastar will be focused on revamping its partner program this year along with signing up new partners. The company will also establish onsite training to help partners market their offerings to vertical markets like the hospitality field and small business sector.
