Votela Receives 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award
Enterprise UCaaS Recognized for Exceptional Innovation
Annapolis, MD (August 9, 2012) — #Votela, a leading provider of Enterprise Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has honored the Company as winner of the 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year award.
Votela is unique in that it is the only combined carrier and North American Distributor of Siemens OpenScape Cloud Services (OSCS). It offers the sole tier-1, carrier-grade solution for the enterprise that is designed specifically for a distributed reseller network, and that is built entirely by a single manufacturer.
“Our mission and company mandate is to enable value-added resellers (VARs) and managed services providers (MSPs) with the enterprise-class tools to independently launch a cloud voice or unified communications offering easily and quickly. Unlike with other carriers and service providers, our partners are able to deploy service to their customers and realize new, recurring revenue in a matter of days,” said Adam Cole, CEO of Votela.
Votela’s Siemens OSCS Provider offering is built primarily for VARs and MSPs who want to deliver world class UCaaS under their own brand with the ability to wrap in additional service and hardware offerings. The Siemens/Votela partner leverages Votela’s Cloud Management System (CMS) customizable billing platform to build their own Cloud Offerings anchored around Siemens OpenScape Cloud Services. This bundling capability creates stickiness with the customer and can easily drive margins to above 50% when creating pricing models that leverage over-subscription.
“Through Votela, VARs and MSPs maintain the flexibility and full control to manage their own subscribers and to sell myriad solutions, each generating its own revenue stream. Important to note is that the internal billing/OSS platform allows Votela’s partners to customize and white-label each deployment,” added Cole.
“Votela was chosen to receive a 2011 Product of the Year Award for creating outstanding advancements in communications,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “(Product) has proven benefits for its customers and provides ROI for the companies that use it. Congratulations to the entire team at Votela. I look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the coming year.”
