On Line Systems the Carlisle based Samsung converged communications rseller recently held a VoIP seminar at Carlisle Racecourse. The event, which was targeted at both existing On Line customers and potential prospects was over-subscribed with more than 100 visitors attending the event. On Line invited a number of their technology partners to present at the event including Samsung Business Communications.
“We were delighted at the response and turn out at the event.” Stated Barry Maxey, Sales Director at On Line. “This shows there is a demand from end-users to find out about and embrace VoIP. The main theme of the day was education.” Continued Barry. “There is a lot of jargon and mystique surrounding the subject and we wanted to inform and educate attendees on all aspects of Voice over IP including the benefits they can achieve for their business when deploying the technology.”
“Due to the success of the event we are planning the next one for later in the year and we would like to thank our technology partners for their support and contribution on the day.” Concluded Barry.
David Garwood, Product Manager at Samsung, who presented an overview on the customer benefits of VoIP stated. “The audience was very receptive and willing to engage on the subject of IP Telephony and the business benefits you can expect.” David also highlighted the security issues surrounding IP. “Security is a major issue for our Resellers and their customers. When you implement a converged communication solution the last thing you want to worry about is whether your voice system has become vulnerable. Samsung are the only vendor currently addressing this important concern with a fully integrated intrusion detection and protection solution available across the OfficeServ 7000 family.”
