Vocalocity launches cloud-based platform for telecoms

Infotech Lead America: Vocalocity’s cloud-based platform for telecom service providers aids in offering hosted communications services to their customers.

Since hosted IP telephony and communications lines are expected to see annual growth rate of 30 percent through 2018, service providers can leverage Vocalocity’s platform to expand their portfolio of offerings and create new revenue streams by tapping into the hosted IP PBX market.

Telecom service providers can leverage Vocalocity’s cloud solution — that uses to manage voice over IP (VoIP) services for nearly 20,000 customers and more than 120,000 end users — to better serve current customers and acquire new subscribers.

Cloud-based service contributes to low upfront costs and the ability to generate revenue in 90 days.

CornerStone, a communications services provider, is one of Vocalocity’s first partners to use the platform to reach small and midsized business customers throughout the US.

“We selected Vocalocity as our custom cloud voice solution based on their features designed specifically for the SMB market. The ability to go to market without extensive upfront costs was a major differentiator,” said Donald Walsh, chief technology officer of CornerStone Telephone.

Vocalocity will provide marketing resources and materials along with sales support so service providers can better target customers and market services. Marketing materials include information sheets, data sheets, user guides and whitepapers, as well as syndicated content for partners to host on the web.

Wain Kellum, CEO of Vocalocity, said: “The VoIP services market in the SMB segment continues to accelerate, presenting opportunity for everyone as customers find they can save money and get a much better service that helps them grow their business.”
