MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Intermedia, a leading cloud communications and collaboration provider, today announced that D&H Distributing, a prominent technology distributor to resellers focused on the SMB market, has selected Intermedia as its preferred Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) provider. Its UCaaS portfolio will now include Intermedia Unite™, Cloud PBX, and SIP Trunking.
Peter DiMarco, Vice President of VAR Sales for D&H, explains the decision: "At D&H, we realize the future of service offerings lies in the cloud. That's where partner demand is beginning to focus. As we continue to build-out our cloud vendor portfolio, a robust UCaaS offering fills a growing niche in the market that we want to address for our customers through a compelling partner. Intermedia offers 20 years of expertise in providing quality unified communications services, known for its ease of installation and management, and market-leading support."
Eric Martorano, Chief Revenue Officer of Intermedia, elaborates: "We extend a warm welcome to D&H, our newest distribution partner. Like Intermedia, D&H is focused on enabling the digital transformation of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) through partners with products that deliver greater productivity, collaboration, reliability, security, support, and ease-of-use. Partner demand around the large and rapidly growing UCaaS market is massive. We look forward to helping D&H and its partners capitalize on this huge opportunity with our tightly integrated suite of UCaaS offerings that are easy to sell, provision, and support."
A complete suite of UCaaS services with leading J.D. Power-certified support
D&H partners will sell Intermedia Unite, Cloud PBX business phone service, and SIP Trunking as subscription services. This opportunity will enable partners to meet the significant demand from small and medium-sized businesses looking to move their IT and telecom solutions to the cloud.
Intermedia's UCaaS offerings are simple for partners to install and manage and for SMBs to embrace. Intermedia services are backed by J.D. Power-certified 24/7 support and a 99.999% uptime service level agreement:
- Intermedia Unite is the easy-to-use, highly mobile UCaaS platform that allows businesses to realize greater productivity and collaboration, whether their employees are in the office or remote. Intermedia Unite includes a next-generation full-featured business phone system (Cloud PBX), plus integrated screen sharing, video collaboration, backup and file sharing, and much more.
- Intermedia Cloud PBX is a business phone system that offers rich, enterprise-grade calling features, with improved reliability and mobility versus on-premises systems.
- Intermedia SIP Trunking is for businesses not yet ready to move their phone system to the cloud. Intermedia's SIP Trunking saves money and delivers outstanding reliability by routing calls over the internet instead of through the phone company – customers can even keep their existing phone system and numbers.
Intermedia removes the time-intensive roadblocks to selling UCaaS
With Intermedia's 360° approach to partner success, D&H partners will receive complimentary access to support and training needed to accelerate the sales cycle, including sales trainings, marketing materials, sales collateral, an intuitive online ordering system and partner admin portal, and Partner Concierge support. Intermedia also removes time-intensive roadblocks by managing the complicated taxation and billing requirements on the partners' behalf. In addition, no-cost network testing tools like VoIP Scout™ help D&H partners deliver a reliable voice experience from the start – meaning partners spend less time on avoidable, time-consuming support and service. And by eliminating installation, programming, and maintenance thanks to Intermedia's cloud-based platform, D&H partners can focus on more important tasks – like nurturing and growing their customer base.
Intermedia's full suite of UCaaS offerings will be available through D&H as of March 2, 2018. For more details, visit www.dandh.com.
