iHub, the hosted communications provider, has announced that reseller Worldwide Group has signed a wholesale agreement to sell iHub hosted IP services through its channel and to its existing direct customer base. Worldwide Group has already sold several installations and has over two hundred extensions prepped for its aggressive sales pipeline.
Mark Duckmanton, managing director, Worldwide Group, comments: “iHub is uniquely placed in the UK to provide its partners with a robust carrier grade solution and it is for this reason that we are successfully collaborating. Our partnership with iHub has already proved fruitful with two installations completed before we have finished their five stage training programme. There is now no doubt that with a carrier grade switch IP hosted telephony is in a position to transform business communication and it is in our interest to reflect this trend.”
Kate Covill, partner solutions director, iHub adds: “Hosted IP services are coming of age and this is further illustrated by our partnership with Worldwide Group, a major European switchless reseller. IP hosting allows end users to only pay for functions they subscribe to, enabling them to access new technology and large company features at a fraction of the cost, reducing equipment obsolescence and depreciation. Once in service, all management functions are web based, making moves and changes easy and reducing internal IT requirement and training costs. An attractive prospect in today’s market environment.”
