Romford, 11 October 2016 – Cloud Telephones, the specialist VoIP and connectivity services distributor, has announced that its reseller partners have now deployed more than 3000 seats of Gamma’s Horizon hosted VoIP service in the UK.
With each seat producing recurring monthly income for resellers, the current installed base can be expected to generate well over £1 million in revenues in the current calendar year. Cloud Telephones recently recorded its first month in which billing for the services totalled more than £100,000 and it confidently expects to add a further 2000 seats before the end of 2016 and to double the installed base by the end of its financial year in April 2017.
The growth is being driven by the increasing popularity of hosted services and the availability of higher-speed broadband, said John Carter, Managing Director of Cloud Telephones, and is a very good sign for resellers.
“The wider availability and affordability of highs-speed broadband has encouraged more businesses to look at which elements of their ICT they can move to the cloud. VoIP is one of the first services they will adopt as it delivers very tangible benefits in the form of greater flexibility and manageability, the opportunity to improve customer and employee experiences, and reduced costs. Business customers are getting used to online and hosted services very quickly indeed and this is good news for channel partners as it brings in recurring monthly income. That recurring revenue will keep growing and provide an increasingly firm foundation on which they can build solid, sustainable businesses.”
Once they have experienced Gamma’s service, many customers will increase the number of seats they have, Carter points out, and the growing reputation of the service means that sales can be expected to increase at a healthy rate. “The number of enquiries we receive and pass on to our resellers continues to rise each month and we confidently expect the growth we’ve seen in both the user base and revenues to continue.”
Gamma’s Horizon solution is now firmly established as a leader in the UK hosted VoIP market. Cloud Telephones provides resellers with full training and support on the solution, which offers an extensive range of fixed and mobile telephony capabilities via an easy-to-use web portal. It is suitable for any size of business and requires minimal capital outlay. Horizon also provides extended flexibility with an extensive range of call handling and management features, ‘one number anywhere’ capability, simple per-seat pricing, and lower call costs.
