May 03, 2011

alwaysON, an integrated voice, data and collaboration solutions provider, has partnered with SIPCOM to enhance its hosted voice solution offerings.

Officials with alwaysON said that the partnership with SIPCOM has been designed with specific focus on enhancing the company’s voice and unified communication solutions.

SIPCOM specializes in hosted solutions and bring new capabilities to the alwaysON portfolio.

Thanks to the new relationship, alwaysON will now be able to replace its existing hosted IP PBX solution with Hosted Voice from SIPCOM. 

SIPCOM claims that its hosted IP PBX is an affordable, easily scalable and flexible platform that can be setup up in a fraction of the time of other voice systems. 

"Our partnership with SIPCOM adds tremendous scope and depth to our voice and unified communications capabilities and is a natural evolution of our proposition.  Through SIPCOM, we are effectively enhancing both our voice solutions and hosted PBX offering,” said James Byles, managing director of alwaysON, in a statement. 

“Our unified communications solutions are extended with the addition of multi-tenanted hosted voice for Lync.  SIPCOM also offer a hosted SharePoint solution that our customers will be able to leverage via our new partnership," said Byles.

Company officials opined that alwaysON will also benefit from the addition of multi-tenanted hosted voice for their Microsoft Lync solution.  Lync is an enterprise grade, real-time unified communications platform, offering presence management, instant-messaging, voice and collaboration capabilities from a single user interface. 

"We are excited to be partnering with alwaysON, this partnership will strengthen both parties ability to capitalise on the growing hosted services market place. Services such as Hosted IP PBX and Lync are real gateways to leveraging higher recurring revenue through increased ARPU and overall product margins," said Daniel Allen CEO of SIPCOM.

Back in February, McLaren announced that it had selected alwaysON to implement Microsoft OCS, delivered over a secure and resilient MPLS Network to connect their distributed sites across the UK enabling real-time collaboration.

McLaren’s immediate need was to manage their communications in a more efficient way in order to increase productivity and operational synergy. The new solution is also expected to lower travel costs and accelerate the decision making processes across the business.
