Unified communications vendor AltiGen has added another partner to its growing reseller base.
Sikich, an accounting, tax and business technology consulting firm based in Aurora, Ill., has signed on to resell AltiGens Microsoft-based UC solutions. The firm was looking for a reliable UC offering for its growing telecommunications consulting business, and chose AltiGen in part because of its pedigree as a Microsoft-based solution.
It became very clear that AltiGen was different from the rest in terms of their Microsoft UC offering,” said Dennis Suglich, partner at Sikich, in a release announcing the partnership. They dont just use Microsoft as a plug-in or sales pitch. As a true Microsoft-based software solution, AltiGen is one of the few vendors certified for Microsoft OCS via the Microsoft Open Interoperability Program, with their native SIP integration to OCS. As a true open, standards-based solution, combined with their Mobility and Microsoft story, AltiGen is truly in a category of their own.”
Jeff Rudolph, head of Sikichs Technology Service Area, noted: Many businesses are coming to us today with rooms full of end of life hardware with no support and no options. It doesnt make any sense to provide these companies with new proprietary hardware-based solutions subject to the same fate. We needed a real solution to address this ongoing problem.
In addition, businesses today have gone mobile and we wanted a true mobility offering,” he added. Most importantly, we desired a solution that made sense in terms of our commitment to Microsoft technologies. After reviewing all of the telecom product options, we are pleased to offer AltiGen solutions to our customers.”
