IPCortex Unveils ‘Micro’ Opportunity

Rob Pickering of IPCortex

IPCortex has unveiled the IPCortex Micro, a PBX optimised for the sub-15 user market to ease longer term migrations to fully hosted platforms at a future point in time.

The launch of Micro PBX is designed to bridge between legacy ISDN and fully hosted communications platforms, especially where broadband connectivity may not yet be sufficient to support make full hosted provision possible. Micro will be available for resellers from October.

In a market where ISDN is retiring and fast connectivity is not universal, Micro could provide an opportunity to drive new revenue and deliver value.

Rob Pickering, CEO at IPCortex comments; “We’d like to think that fast broadband connectivity is ubiquitous here in the UK, but unfortunately for many that is still not the case. Micro PBX is designed to be a cost effective stepping stone for customers that weren’t previously able to take advantage due to connectivity issues or being a company of smaller size. IPCortex Micro also speaks to growing demand for flexibility in deployment models. Our resellers are seeing more customers ask about migration between platforms like hardware, virtual and hosted, and IPCortex Micro means they have a solution at hand for even the smallest opportunities.”

Joe Margetts, Sales Manager at reseller IT 3000 said, “While hosted communications services are becoming more and more popular, many customers in the more rural areas simply can’t rely on connectivity to make the most of this spend. We’re seeing a lot of companies, especially those in remote areas, wanting a mid-way solution that gives them more control of their communications today, but also gives them the opportunity to simply and easily migrate when the time is right.”
