With all of the press releases flowing due to the Fall VON show, it looks like the announcement of VoIPSupply and Bandwidth.com teaming up to sell SIP Trunking and Data Services to the Small Medium Business fell through the cracks. While I might hold a biased view of the importance of this announcement as I played a crtitical role in the establishment of this partnership, I feel this partnership is an example of the new way to sell communication solutions to the Small Medium Business.
Rather then working with numerous different vendors, VoIPSupply.com and Bandwidth.com have simplified the process of procuring a true end-to-end voice communication solution. Small Medium Business customers normally do not have robust IT staffs or individuals that they can dedicate to managing the entire process of assessing, selecting, and implementing a business communications solution. What VoIP Supply and Bandwidth.com have done is allowed Small Medium Business customers to get their Data, Voice, Hardware, Support, and Managed Services all through one point of contact. This streamlines the management of a business communication solution deployment and allows Small Medium Business customers to spend their time growing their business, not managing four or five different vendor relationships.
Here is the release:
