World Wide Technology Joins VOSS Partner Program, to Add UC Management to its Communications Offering

RICHARDSON, Texas (February 11, 2014) – VOSS Solutions today announced that World Wide Technology (WWT), a market-leading systems integrator that provides innovative technology and supply chain solutions, will begin to offer VOSS UC management technology to its far reaching customer base. The announcement comes on the heels of the VOSS-4-UC launch and the hiring of key personnel including Jim Ortbals as Vice President of Partner Sales.

WWT understands the growing importance of UC management in communications infrastructures, and VOSS will support the systems integrator as it develops new go-to-market strategies with VOSS. The partnership will target enterprise customers with IP voice/UC infrastructure and those with no existing UC environment.

For enterprise customers with a partially or fully deployed IP voice/UC infrastructure that wish to benefit from the next wave of UC technology, VOSS and WWT will offer VOSS-4-UC Overbuild. This UC management solution effortlessly takes over an existing communications platform and automatically learns all existing data that has been deployed in the incumbent UC environment, including custom dial plan elements, to provide a single portal to replace all the interfaces for multiple UC services.

For enterprise customers with no existing UC environment that seek a ‘greenfield’ solution that fits their specific business structure and process requirements, VOSS and WWT will offer VOSS-4-UC Greenfield. This UC management solution helps organizations design and deploy their UC environment from the ground up and then quickly and easily on-board the enterprise’s users and associated data while integrating seamlessly with the business process and legacy systems.

"VOSS-4-UC is well suited to help partners deliver additional value to their end customers," said Jim Ortbals, Vice President of Partner Sales at VOSS. "WWT understands this well, and we’re all looking forward to introducing VOSS-4-UC to a wider enterprise market."

VOSS provides business solutions for organizations with complex UC management requirements. By simplifying the design, delivery and operation of UC infrastructures, VOSS enables organizations to better profit from enterprise communications in the public and private cloud.

"We believe VOSS-4-UC will support our clients in their drive to adopt next generation collaboration tools and reduce day-to-day operational costs by simplifying the administration of their communications environments," commented Bob Olwig, Vice President of Business Strategy and Innovation at WWT.
