A new partnership has been announced between VoIPon Solutions, a worldwide distributor of Voice over IP (VoIP) hardware, and Ascom, an enterprise-grade and mission-critical mobile telecommunications device and workflow solution manufacturer.
The agreement will see VoIPon become a major UK supplier of Ascom’s mobile solutions including IP-DECT (including ATEX and IECEx-certified) systems and handsets, i63 VoWiFi wireless IP phones, and Myco 3 Android smartphones.
Ascom solutions are widely used by healthcare, manufacturing, industry, hospitality, retail and secure facilities around the world, not simply for voice calls but as operational and safety management solutions.
Matthew Hayward, group sales director at VoIPon, commented, “With demand for such products at a high, we looked to source the best products available for our customers and when Ascom was identified, it was an excellent synergy for our growing base of resellers, installers and enterprise end users.
“Their handsets, in particular the Myco 3 which is a unique offering to the market, provide our resellers the opportunity to offer their customers a unique capability set. Voice calls, process alerts, device control, user positioning, personal alarms and workflow management – all in one solution. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Ascom and bring their advanced product line to our audiences.”
Ascom, headquartered in Switzerland, has businesses in 18 countries and employs around 1,300 people worldwide. It has been operating in the UK for over 60 years.
Mike Bennett, channel manager, Ascom, said, “Our solutions sit neatly in that VoIP category but also offer much more besides in terms of the alerts, alarms, process control and workflow management potential – essentially all the components needed to make communications a situational awareness tool that any organisation can use to keep workers safe and processes productive.
“We look forward to working closely with VoIPon to ensure their resellers have all they need to capitalise on this opportunity, to grow both their business and ours.”
Ascom mobile devices are available to resellers and end-users online at VoIPon.co.uk.
