Cloud Telephones aiming to double number of VoIP partners in 2016

Reseller recruitment event planned for New Year in partnership with Gamma Telecom

Romford, 01 December 2015 – Cloud Telephones, the specialist VoIP and connectivity services provider, is aiming to double the number of resellers it works with pro-actively to market and sell hosted VoIP services over the coming year.

The company is currently working with and paying commission to 70 partners across the UK and wants to bring another 70 on-board through the course of 2016 to meet increased demand. Since the start of the year, Cloud Telephones has seen monthly income from voice services subscriptions grow by more than 200 percent with half of all monthly revenues going to the reseller. It anticipates the strong growth continuing and with the higher volume of new customer enquiries it is now generating, needs to engage with additional partners.

John Carter, Managing Director of Cloud Telephones, says: “The demand is there – we just need more resellers to get involved. Most customers understand hosted voice well enough now and we take all the hassle away from the reseller, so they don’t need to worry about the complexity of getting customers set-up. We generate the original leads, manage all the provisioning and provide support. We have managed thousands of installations already, so the customer gets a great experience and all the reseller needs to do is go out and sell.”

David Rushton, Business Development Manager for Unified Communications at Gamma, says: “Cloud Telephones has really carried the flag for the Gamma Horizon service and achieved phenomenal partner sales growth since the start of this year. It has paved the way for what we believe and expect will be a further and very considerable increase in volume in 2016. Selling VoIP services will deliver long-term rewards for reseller businesses and Cloud Telephones really does make it easy for its partners to find opportunities and manage new customers.”

Cloud Telephones is planning to stage a reseller recruitment event in partnership with Gamma Telecom – its primary hosted VoIP partner – in the New Year. Details will be announced in due course. Separately, the company will be sponsoring an exclusive round table discussion event for communications resellers in January.

Cloud Telephones supports resellers with an ongoing lead generation programme and offers excellent commissions. It also provides bespoke landing pages for partners to use on their own websites and manages all technical details and billing.

Gamma’s Horizon service provides an extensive range of fixed and mobile telephony capabilities via an easy-to-use web portal. Customers can choose their own telephone number, no matter where they are located. Horizon is a reliable and proven service, suitable for any size of business looking to improve their productivity and image, and offers reduced call costs, including much lower rates for international calls.

An extensive range of call handling and management features give customers total flexibility and control of their telephony. Horizon’s ‘one number anywhere’ feature means callers can dial one number to reach your desk and mobile phone. When a primary number is unreachable, calls can be forwarded to a pre-configured alternative device automatically. A single voicemail box can be accessed from any device.

There are no hidden costs with Horizon and customers pay on a simple per-seat basis. As they do not need to buy a PBX, there is no need for any significant investment in hardware or for financing.
