VoSKY, the market leader in delivering Skype for business solutions, has announced two new distributors in Europe to support its growth plans for 2008 and help meet the growing business demand for its VoSKY Exchange PBX-to-Skype application gateways.
VoSKY has signed key distribution agreements with Cohort Technology in the UK and with Swedish distributor Electryon Communication Products. The strategic appointments will play a key role in helping VoSKY to further boost penetration in the UK and European SMB and enterprise markets. VoSKY opted to partner with the two distributors because of their established reseller base and strong presence across key European markets.
David Tang, VP of global marketing at VoSKY said: “With its huge Skype user base, Europe is a strategic market for us. We’ve noticed increasing interest in the channel in Skype and its business benefits – we chose to appoint these two leading distributors, as they have the right blend of commercial experience and technical knowledge to significantly increase our market penetration in key European markets.”
In the UK market, Cohort Technology will be working closely with VoSKY and its Shoretel partners to help capitalise on the growing demand for Skype in the business environment. VoSKY’s flagship PBX-to-Skype Exchange has achieved full certification from Shoretel’s Technology and seamlessly extends ShoreTel IP-PBXs to Skype, to deliver value-added business applications that enhance business communication and reduce telecoms costs.
Grahame Smee, managing director of Cohort Technology said: “The fact that the VoSKY Exchange is the only product range with both Skype and Shoretel certification gives Cohort Technology and its reseller base great confidence when promoting these products. It will prove to be a welcome add-on for our Shoretel partners, giving them a competitive edge to help boost sales and increase margin.”
The VoSKY exchange is a family of VoIP application gateways that Skype-enables a company’s existing phone system to allow businesses to take advantage of Internet telephony without replacing their existing telephony network infrastructure. SMBs and Enterprises can utilise VoSKY Exchange application gateways to cost-effectively add enhanced business applications like Web Click2Call, global presence, PBX remote access, multi-site PBX networking and Skype trunking to traditional TDM or IP PBX systems.
