Timico Unveils Channel Opportunity

Comms Channel Expo 2006 (Birmingham NEC 10-11 May) will see Timico presenting its Business Partner Programme to distributors and VARs wishing to extend their portfolio and gain experience in the convergence and VoIP market.

“Comms Channel Expo is an important show for Timico. Our attendance will enable us to reach a wide audience of decision makers from the indirect channel and our job will be to ensure they learn about the Timico converged communications portfolio and the features that set the service and company in a league of its own,” says Matthew Gimlette, Commercial Director, Timico.

The company says its Business Partners enable UK SMEs to reap the cost and efficiency benefits of convergence by providing them with business-strength communications.

“The Timico VoIP for Business solution is currently the only VoIP service based on the Nortel Multimedia Communications Server (MCS) 5200 platform commercially available for UK SMEs. This Nortel partnership has enabled Timico to develop an extremely feature-rich and SIP-based multimedia communications service that provides voice and video conferencing together with Presence, Instant Messaging and a variety of collaboration tools. Quality of service is guaranteed through Timico’s ownership of b2b ISP, Atlas Internet. In addition to its VoIP for Business solution, the Timico portfolio includes fixed line, mobile and internet services.”

The Timico Business Partner Programme offers a selective approach to the services the company offers: “Our business strength partnership network provides opportunities to earn highly competitive upfront and ongoing commissions for new sales or referrals,” continues Matthew Gimlette. “The more services a business partner provides, the more its customers will reap the benefits of convergence. We will provide guidance and training for areas that traditionally may not have been part of a previous business offering. More products and services not only mean more revenue per customer and therefore more commission each month, but also secures a longer term “sticky” relationship with them, securing the business partner’s revenue streams.”
