VOSS 6.1 Added to Cisco Price List, Opening New Channel To Market for Unified Communications Service Delivery Solution
READING, UK – Wednesday June 3, 2009 - VOSS, recently nominated a Cool Vendor in Unified Communications (UC) by Gartner, and a leader in UC service delivery software, today announced that it has become a member of the Cisco SolutionsPlus program.
VOSS 6.1, designed specifically to address the challenges involved in deploying and managing UC and IP telephony (IPT) solutions for service providers and large to medium sized enterprises, was selected by Cisco to join the SolutionsPlus program as it is seen to add significant value to Cisco’s UC solutions. The VOSS UC Service Delivery Platform (SDP) increases productivity, reduces technical complexity, speeds implementation, cuts capital and operating costs and provides an integrated platform from which new UC services can be launched as and when these new services are cost-justified.
“We are absolutely delighted to be part of the SolutionsPlus program, not just because Cisco is very selective on which products get into the scheme, but also because membership is by invitation only,” explained Mike Frayne, CEO VOSS. As a result of its SolutionsPlus status, VOSS will now be listed on the Cisco price list, and the company will be able to further strengthen its relationship with Cisco through co-marketing and channel activity.
Cisco and VOSS began working together in 2003, delivering hosted and managed IP voice solutions to customers worldwide. This announcement further strengthens the Cisco/VOSS relationship, and additionally will simplify the process of delivering complete applications solutions to customers that have complex UC and IPT management requirements. The benefits derived from a Cisco / VOSS solution for the management of UC, include:
- Business-driven communications management
- Automated service creation, delivery, customization and management
- Rapid and cost effective rollout of new and improved UC services
- Ease of migration from TDM to IP
- Management of hybrid, multi-vendor UC architectures
- “Future proofing” of networks, reducing the risk of technology or vendor decisions
