WVT Evolves to Become Alteva

January 23, 2013

It’s time for out with the old and in with the new name, as WVT Communications Group has officially changed its name to Alteva (News - Alert). This change will be effective as soon as it receives shareholder approval, and will be made across all of the company’s business units.

WVT Communications or as it will soon be known Alteva, provides cloud-based unified communications solutions for businesses of all sizes. Since its founding as a local telephone switchboard operator in 1902 it has always changed and adapted to the new technological trends (and has helped set a few of them), so this name change is yet another move in adapting to the times.

Alteva provides VoIP, UC and Microsoft (News - Alert) communication services that are split into three distinct divisions. Of course, as they are not mutually exclusive, there are many ways that the three services can work together which Alteva takes advantage of for creating complimentary services.

"As Alteva, we embrace a singular vision for generating profitable growth though the provision of high-quality communications services,” said David Cuthbert (News - Alert), the company’s president and chief operating officer, in a statement. “The influential presence that Alteva has developed within the business markets it serves and the cloud-based UC ecosystem will be leveraged by all our operating segments. This united branding under the Alteva name enables the Company to benefit from the considerable investments we have been making in sales, marketing, advertising and channel partner development."

With this change, all of Alteva’s divisions and products will reflect a single, united brand and in a competitive market, brand name recognition is always a plus. Will this affect the quality of the company’s services? Of course not, yet WVT has a very nice customer base, and now they know the name to look for is Alteva.
