Master agency ADVODA Communications, Greenwood Village, Colo., announced Tuesday it has entered into strategic business alliance with master agency Corporate Technologies Group Inc. (CTG), Hudson, Ohio., to deliver and support hosted VoIP and SIP trunking services under ADVODA’s agreement with SimpleSignal, Dana Point, Calif.
As a national master agency for SimpleSignal, ADVODA has made commitments in sales volume and internal resource development that enable it to form alliances with other master agencies like CTG, explained ADVODA President and CEO Ron Dunworth, in a prepared statement.
ADVODA seeks to partner with the telecom industry’s larger master agencies to provide their subagents with IP telephony services supported by ADVODA’s back-office platform. ADVODA has developed systems for pre- and post-sales support for IP-based products like hosted VoIP and SIP trunking.
“This type of high-touch management will determine the success of a project for our client," said CTG’s principal and co-founder, Brett Harney, in a press statement of his company’s agreement with ADVODA. “Add to that a commission level greater than the majority of our traditional direct agreements and it becomes a simple decision on our part."
Founded in 1999, CTG is a voice and data network consulting company providing telecom and data management services to businesses. It creates custom solutions for customers by assessing their current communications environment, a selection of more than 45 network providers, project implementation and management.
