IP Telesis (Booths 306-308), a wholesale provider of privatelabeled hosted VoIP services, announced it has signed channel partner agreements with ONS Communications and MyVoIPFon.
Mike Hinton, president of ONS Communications, said the company chose IP Telesis because of flexible differentiation options. IP Telesis demonstrated to us how we can differentiate ourselves and our service offerings via their customization tools so that we can compete effectively against the better-known VoIP providers, stated Hinton. We needed to know that we could control the go to market attributes of our services so we would not look just like the Vonabees and compete solely on price. We now offer IP Telesis program to many of our ISP partners.
MyVoIPFon is using IP Telesis Web-based signup and administration tools to design a network marketing sales program for VoIP services that is integrated directly to the back-office system used to manage down-line activities, commissions and notifications. IP Telesis VoIP services also enable a MyVoIPFon member to create record once broadcast messages to a down-line distribution group.
We decided to base our entire business on the IPTelesis IP Enabled program because they took an active interest in trying to truly understand our business model and then redesigned their tools and offerings to meet the needs of our member community, said Rob Mouritson, founder of MyVoIPFon. They worked closely with our own developers to integrate their e-commerce signup process with our member back-office system for greater ease of use and business management for our members.
By providing all of the crucial components necessary to compete globally, including hosted switching capabilities, multiple Tier 1 data centers, TDM gateways, billing and a best-in-class network, our partners can leave the managing and implementation of VoIP to the experts at IP Telesis and focus on what they do best, which is selling and supporting their customers, said Greg Nielsen, founder and vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at IP Telesis. We give them the advantage of rapid deployment and time-to-market that would otherwise take them years and millions in capital expenditures.
After announcing the launch of its IP Enabled private-label reseller program last fall, IP Telesis has signed wholesale partnerships with more than 20 service providers. IP Telesis attributes this success to its ability to deliver customized service differentiation for the smaller retail providers that are attracted by the low cost of entry and IP Telesis turnkey capability.
IP Telesis initial startup program can empower a retail provider to begin marketing hosted residential and business VoIP services in as little as 10 days after contract signing, and startup fees can be as little as $5,000. The IP Telesis program allows it to rebrand all customer-facing tools, including Web-based e-commerce subscriber signup process and its unique ProMessenger subscriber portal in as few as three business days. IP Telesis also provides a Reseller Administration portal which allows each IP Enabled reseller to customize its own service packages, plans, CPE hardware offerings and service plan optional add-ons.
