Digium and Global Convergence Expand Distribution Partnership with Cloud Master Agent Agreement
Global Convergence Adds Digium’s Cloud, Hosted Business Phone System and SIP Trunking Services to Product Portfolio
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., August 4, 2015 – Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, today announced that Global Convergence Inc. (GCI), a leading value-added distributor of business telephony and technology products headquartered in Oldsmar, Fla., has joined the Digium Cloud Agent Program as a Master Agent. The agreement allows Global Convergence partners the opportunity to expand their portfolios with Digium’s award-winning Switchvox Cloud Unified Communications (UC) business phone system and Digium SIP Trunking services, while maximizing commissions in the rapidly growing cloud services market.
More than a hosted VoIP PBX, Switchvox Cloud is an affordably priced, full-featured UC cloud solution. Digium’s unique “all features included” pricing model for Switchvox Cloud takes the guesswork and complexity out of choosing and deploying an advanced business phone system. Developed and deployed by Digium, SIP Trunking gives companies the ability to offer an end-to-end solution under one support umbrella. With the increased cost savings of SIP Trunking services, the powerful UC functionality of Switchvox, and the ease of use with feature-rich Digium IP Phones, Digium provides a total business communications solution for small and medium businesses.
“Global Convergence has been a leading Digium distribution partner since 2007, and has unparalleled expertise in Switchvox solutions, IP phones, gateways and cards,” said Jennifer Bryant, vice president, global marketing at GCI. “We are thrilled to add Switchvox Cloud services and bring our solution provider community additional opportunities for acceleration and growth of their Digium UC practice.”
“As a valued, existing distributor, it’s exciting to welcome Global Convergence into our Cloud Master Agent program, allowing them to expand their portfolio of solutions with our Switchvox hosted PBX and Digium SIP Trunking services,” said Gayle Magee, director of worldwide distribution and cloud sales for Digium. “Switchvox Cloud was developed with Digium’s premises-based Switchvox PBX. Resellers already selling and supporting on-premises Switchvox products are able to leverage their expertise to rapidly deploy these cloud-based solutions to their SMB customers with little to no learning curve.”
