Armstrong Communications is to become a member of the recently launched UK Cloud Alliance. The UK Cloud Alliance, a collective of UK-based technology firms and service providers, aims to guarantee the full transformational benefits of cloud computing. The Alliance helps medium sized UK businesses look for new ways to answer their biggest challenges. The objective is to provide a single source of technology choices that can be serviced by local specialists.

This initiative brings together the best that cloud computing has to offer, but delivered via local infrastructure, and by local service partners.

Armstrong Communications provides a host of telephony and voice solutions, including CTI (computer telephony integration), IVR (Interactive Voice Response), diallers, call recording, management services and analysis, as well as consultancy. The company has seen a growing interest in cloud services from cost conscious businesses and from those looking to transform their operations in readiness for future growth. Armstrong Communications believes that joining the UKCA is a logical choice; by aligning itself to a group of like-minded service providers it can fulfil the needs of UK businesses.

Justin Walton, Sales and Marketing Director at Armstrong Communications said, “The types of people who choose to work with the UK Cloud Alliance, either as members such as ourselves, or indeed as customers, are forward thinking and visionary. Business leaders know how they want to use technology now and into the future; doing things the old fashioned way is no longer driving competitive results. They recognise it is time for them to begin their transformational journey to the cloud with the expertise and consulting capabilities of the UK Cloud Alliance.”

Ricky Hudson, CEO of Star, commented, “We welcome Armstrong Communications to the UK Cloud Alliance. This is about serving up technology services to UK businesses because they like being looked after by local organizations they can get to know, grow with and trust. Together, Star, Armstrong Communications and the rest of this Alliance will bring the innovation and value promised by cloud computing to the most dynamic sector of the UK economy.”
