HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, today announced that Acuity Technologies, a premier telecommunications master agency located in Tampa, Fla., has joined the new Digium Cloud Agent Program as a Master Agent. Acuity specializes in providing value-added agents with network and cloud services, management and support solutions, and professional services, nationwide.
The partnership allows Acuity to offer its agents the opportunity to expand their portfolios with Digium's award-winning Switchvox Cloud Unified Communications (UC) phone system, while maximizing commissions in the rapidly growing cloud services market. More than a hosted IP 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.
"With the addition of Switchvox Cloud to our portfolio of products, we are confident that our customers will benefit from Digium's long history revolutionizing the telecommunications industry, as well as their innovative business-class Unified Communications solutions," said Josh Anderson, CEO of Acuity Technologies. "There is real differentiation in Digium's Asterisk-based Switchvox platform. It gives users an experience closer to a premises-based system than that of a typical hosted-based system. This is especially true when it comes to handset options. The Digium handsets provide functionality that isn't commonly offered with other solutions prevalent in the market today."
"With the rapid adoption and growth of cloud-based UC solutions, Acuity Technologies brings a wealth of knowledge and experience as a cloud services Master Agent for Digium," said Jim Butler, Digium's director of global channel sales. "Acuity also brings significant value-add to agents through their infrastructure management, help desk services, and project management, which can be deployed on behalf of agents providing Digium Cloud Services."
