Citel Technologies is pleased to announce the signing of an Authorized Reseller Agreement with Worldwide IPGENIE Ltd. of Coleraine, Northern Ireland for the sale and marketing of its VoIP migration device in the UK and a number of other EU countries where IPGENIE is promoting its IPGENIE Unified Communications Platform
The Portico TVA offers companies the ability to migrate their customers to VoIP without the unnecessary burden of ripping and replacing existing cabling infrastructure, purchasing new IP phones and installing Power over Ethernet switches. Customers can retain their existing digital, analog and Centrex phones without removing the existing switches by SIP enabling those phones through the use of the Portico TVA. This is a quick and cost effective means of VoIP migration.
Citel’s UK Engineering Office started working with Worldwide IPGENIE Ltd. prior to the Convergence Summit North held in Manchester in April 2012 on interoperability testing between the two platforms. With many companies seeking to maximize the value of migrating to VoIP, enabling customer to utilize their existing cabling and handset configurations when implemented with IPGENIE® gives them a further incentive to make the IP telephony move said a spokesman for Citel. Testing between the two devices proved successful and a formal agreement has been finalized as Worldwide IPGENIE Ltd. expands its market coverage throughout Europe. Citel sees great potential with IPGENIE® and looks forward to working together to further expand European sales.
“Installing the IPGENIE® UCP was an easy simple transition” said Andy Hill of Troggs Surf Shop in Portrush, Northern Ireland, “it has given our company more outgoing channels for less cost and a whole host of features home workers can use and provide employees greater mobility”. With the addition of the Portico™ TVA™ to the IPGENIE® portfolio should allow customers to maximize their investment in their existing handsets and save additional costs as they migrate to the IPGENIE UCP.
