(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Romford -- DMSL, the SMB-focused distributor of connectivity and cloud solutions confirms Plusnets affordable broadband options are the ideal platform on which dealers can build their voice-over IP sales in 2014.


Following the recently-announced partnerships agreement formed between DMSL and the business broadband and phone services provider, DMSL will be sending a series of communications to resellers highlighting the opportunity with Plusnet and also contacting dealers individually to discuss the potential of offering Plusnets dependable bandwidth as a platform for hosted VoIP solutions.

VoIP provides a cost-effective solution for businesses looking to maximise flexibility and minimise costs. In fact, when surveying Plusnet customers, a quarter said they were reducing their telephony costs through an increased use of VoIP services, now that they had fibre broadband. VoIP enables improved customer service by allowing staff to stay in-touch at all times and respond faster to customers.

Business efficiency is enhanced with VoIP services. Staff are able to hot desk with an IP phone making them always available on a direct dial number. New users can be added almost instantly and a full set of features voicemail, call forwarding, call recording, conferencing, auto attendant features and much more are all available. Meanwhile, integration with CRM systems enables even more efficient working and enhanced customer service.

John Carter, Managing Director of DMSL, said: VoIP remains a big opportunity for dealers addressing the SMB market, but you need reliable broadband with prioritised service to make it truly effective. Plusnet provides a service you can depend upon and provides resellers with the perfect platform on which to offer VoIP services and thus address a market with continued strong growth potential, to both open up new revenue streams and acquire new customers. With a customer-services oriented provider like Plusnet behind them, resellers can feel confident in recommending VoIP to their business customers and focus entirely on selling its benefits.

Nick Silverwood, Head of Business for Plusnet, added: VoIP offers significant potential for SMBs to reduce their costs with many smaller businesses looking to adopt this technology. To do this, they require a reliable business broadband platform, provided by a trusted brand, and the personal guidance of their local dealer.
