Paul Kruger, Product Manager VOSS-4-UC, VOSS
We live in a time where some of the hottest topics are automation and artificial intelligence, where we increasingly hear the question: “When will human interaction not be THAT important anymore?”
This month, I had the privilege of spending time in-person with various VOSS customers across the UK and Europe. These meetings and interactions were invaluable as I had the opportunity to sit down and discuss, person-to-person, what is strategically important for our customers; what the overall business challenges are that they are trying to find cost effective solutions to, and then what their direction and roadmap is to achieve this. Our customers have also been open with what their business pipeline looks like.
During these meetings, it quickly became clear that no product on earth stays relevant. It will need constant evolution to suit the changing needs of a business. It will always need feedback, input and refinement. And, in a complex niche environment such as UC where the landscape is incredibly unpredictable, united customer-vendor collaboration and an agile development process is vital for success. And, if that collaboration is face-to-face, all the better!
It is refreshing to see that the extensive enhancements in VOSS-4-UC version 19.1.1 - that in most cases are co-developed with our users - are resonating well with our customers’ operational and design admins. During my meetings, many new integration capabilities were demonstrated, and even more pre-existing integration capabilities were explored. In a number of situations, our customers had preconceptions that they were facing challenges that required changes to VOSS-4-UC. But, after some discussion, it would become evident that a solution was available today, within the current product capabilities, proving once again that face-to-face communication and collaboration really can’t be beaten. Other challenges were brainstormed, fleshed out, and fine-tuned on the roadmap, which also led to collaborative, agile development discussions in which VOSS would not just develop a solution in isolation, but with a full lifespan feedback cycle, ensuring that delivery led to success.
Another major theme during my meetings was our customers’ sales and pre-sales teams’ interest in VOSS’ ability to help them demo their solution to prospective customers. For example, one of our customers needed help demonstrating their solution to a prospect that ran a Cisco-based estate with plans to acquire another company that ran a Microsoft-based estate. Until speaking to VOSS, our customer had not found a solution that offered a fully integrated Cisco/Microsoft solution. In a collaborative demo in which the customer’s solution was driven by the automation and integration capabilities of VOSS, we were able to show the power of the offering to the prospect, which led to a successful acquisition of this new account for our customer. The prospect was impressed with our customer’s unique solution coupled with the fully automated integration that VOSS-4-UC facilitates between Cisco and Microsoft estates. A major selling point was the overall multi-vendor operational ease-of-use that VOSS-4-UC provides.
In another example, one of our customers wanted to demonstrate how their ticketing solution based on ServiceNow - in conjunction with VOSS-4-UC-automated flow-through provisioning - would decrease an end user’s current operational turnaround time and cost. It was great for VOSS to have the opportunity to support our customers with these demos, and add value to their sales cycles.
However, my biggest take-away from the many customer meetings is the following: Having a software product that can automate and integrate with practically ANYTHING that has an API (and in most cases - even if it has no API at all!), is half the battle. But building a collaborative relationship between the customer and a VOSS team that wants you to be successful, and wants to understand your challenges and help you win more business, is ultimately what will drive customer success. In my book, , no AI (currently!) exists that can match the 15-year experience and deep industry knowledge that the team at VOSS Solutions offers.

- VOSS Press Releases
Cisco Live, San Diego, CA - Today, VOSS Solutions announced that FlexITy has become the latest customer to take VOSS-4-UC, the world’s most advanced UC management platform.
FlexITy is an award-winning integrator of smart technology and service solutions, built on powerful and digitally advanced secure platforms, and delivered with decades of IoT expertise and services. FlexTEL, part of the FlexITy brand, is a leading managed business communications solution that provides voice, data, converged, and managed services for businesses and enterprises that need a proven, responsive, cost-effective alternative to the phone and cable monopolies.
FlexITy has been working with VOSS since 2007, when the service provider originally selected the VOSS technology as part of its Cisco HCS platform, in the form of CUCDM. The two companies have worked closely and collaboratively since then.
In 2019, FlexITy chose to upgrade its UC management platform to VOSS-4-UC, in order to realise many additional benefits that VOSS offers. Key drivers for VOSS-4-UC include:
- Shared Multi-Tenancy Architecture
FlexITy wished to deploy a Cisco HCS shared architecture platform in order to create a UCaaS model and offer it to cover small-large enterprises. VOSS-4-UC enables FlexITy to deploy and manage a multi-tenant shared architecture in Cisco HCS, so the provider can create affordable and attractive UCaaS packages for the Canadian market.
- Northbound Integration
VOSS-4-UC provides seamless integration into billing, asset management and other northbound service management systems. By choosing VOSS-4-UC, FlexITy has access to a flexible and agile UC management platform that leads to many efficiency improvements, speeds processes, and offers a far simpler end user experience.
Denis Govedas, Director, Voice Services and Architecture at FlexITy, commented; “We pride our relationship with VOSS as they help us bring strategic offerings to our clients. The flexibility and agility that VOSS-4-UC brings to our Cisco HCS platform, coupled with the responsiveness of the VOSS services team, means that our business is all-encompassing, delivering cutting edge UC solutions to the Canadian market.”
Rob Moore, VP Global Services at VOSS, added; “Having worked alongside FlexITy for more than a decade, I’m really delighted that we can help them to get the most out of their HCS platform with VOSS-4-UC, to quickly respond to market demand by offering flexible and affordable UC packages that suit the requirements of their customers.”

Tuesday April 30, 2019 - Richardson, TX - Today, VOSS Solutions announced that Axians has followed the VOSS H.O.M.E program to transition its UC management from CUCDM to VOSS-4-UC.
Axians, a VINCI Energies brand, offers its customers in various markets a comprehensive range of ICT solutions and services spanning business applications and data analytics, enterprise networks and digital workspaces, datacenters and cloud services, telecommunications infrastructure and cybersecurity.
Axians became a Cisco HCS customer in 2015, providing cloud collaboration services to its network of customers. At the time of purchase, Axians’ Cisco HCS platform was managed by Cisco Unified Communications Domain Manager (CUCDM). Over the next 3 years, Axians successfully grew its HCS platform, offering UCaaS to customers across the Netherlands.
In 2018, when Cisco announced the end of life for CUCDM, Axians took the decision to transition away from CUCDM, with the aim of addressing two critical factors:
- Axians wanted to reduce the level of manual administration on its Cisco HCS platform by introducing higher levels of automation
- Axians was keen to integrate its Cisco HCS platform into other business systems to offer a richer suite of UC services in a more seamless way
After evaluating other products on the market, Axians chose to transition from CUCDM to VOSS-4-UC.
To address Axians’ desire to improve the levels of automation in its HCS platform, VOSS introduced flow-through provisioning which automates the process of user provisioning by synchronizing users and their UC services with data provided by a customer LDAP server. With flow-through provisioning, VOSS can automate many of the manual MACDs that Axians had been carrying out on behalf of its customers, improving time to resolution and increasing customer satisfaction.
As part of the automation optimization process, VOSS also introduces multiple levels of devolved administration, so that Axians can retain overall control of the platform while decentralizing various levels of administrative power down to the customer and end user level. This enables customers to have more control over their UCaaS platform and has seen an improvement in end user adoption.
With VOSS-4-UC, Axians now has a single point of integration to interconnect its HCS platform with upstream and downstream IT systems. As a result, Axians is integrating Cisco HCS with ServiceNow, with longer term goals of integrating its contact center and Webex Teams environments as well.
Tom Greeve, Director at Axians commented; “As a Systems Integrator, it’s our job to provide high quality and cost-effective leading edge UCaaS packages to our customers. VOSS enables Axians to provide a highly automated and flexible UC management framework that allows us to respond to our customers' requirements quickly and efficiently.”
Stefan Peters, Director at VOSS Solutions, added; “VOSS-4-UC unlocks many new opportunities for Axians to grow its HCS platform, to integrate new systems and to adopt new technologies, and to really embrace the power of automation. We are excited to see Axians customer base grow as a result of this strong foundation that is underpinned by VOSS.”
