Nimans Offers Resellers a Step-up into Cloud

John Mck

Nimans has joined forces with system manufacturer Unify to offer resellers a compelling new way into cloud-based communications – and a step into the future.

The first ‘private cloud’ offering from Unify is powered by data centre provider Virtual 1 and offers resellers powerful new ways to capture additional revenue streams – from a full system feature-set.

The technology provides full OpenScape Business functionality and is based on a flexible ’per user per month’ licensing model which scales up to 1,500 users.

Rapid deployment, cost control and centralised web-based management are part of a flexible and scalable proposition, designed for SMBs. Resellers have a choice of delivering an on-premise server based solution, using a designated data centre or their own hosted service provider. In addition ‘SIP Exchange’ allows direct access to the PSTN via Nimans SIP.

“This is an exciting collaboration which in many ways allows resellers to steal a march on their rivals by embracing the next stage in cloud-based communications,” says John McKindland, Nimans’ Head of Solutions. “It offers full system features such as Voicemail, UC, CTI and web conferencing combined with the flexibility of a pay-as-you-use service without traditional CAPEX investment. It’s a full hybrid model; virtualisation based on IT ‘always on’.”
