VOSS Provides FlexITy With Unified Communications Service Delivery Platform

HERNDON, VIRGINIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 17, 2009) - VOSS, nominated a Cool Vendor in Unified Communications by Gartner, and a leader in UC service delivery software, today announced that FlexITy has selected VOSS 6.1, a unified communications service delivery platform to support its managed services operation.

FlexITy Managed Business Communications provides leading voice, data, converged and managed services for businesses and enterprises that need proven, reliable, secure, responsive and cost-effective managed hosted voice solutions. FlexITy Managed Business Communications lowers an enterprise's total cost of ownership by eliminating up-front capital investments, multiple current services and providers, simplifying system administration, maintenance and billing, and consolidating voice and data circuits.

FlexITy recognizes the need to invest in the latest technology, and works hard to provide its customers with leading edge solutions and value added unified communication services. To this end, FlexITy and VOSS have embarked on a strategic relationship for VOSS to provide FlexITy with a platform from which new and improved unified communication services can be introduced to its customer base, quickly, cost effectively, and with minimum impact to business. With both companies enjoying a strong relationship with Cisco and demonstrating a united vision of the true value of unified communications, this is a mutually exciting partnership.

VOSS provides a unified communications service delivery platform enabling the deployment and management of next generation voice services and applications, for managed service providers such as FlexITy, tier 1 telcos and large enterprises. VOSS addresses the challenges involved in managing the entire lifecycle of a UC platform, from initial design (day 0), through to build and deployment (day 1), through to support and administration (day two), and finally to upgrade and scaling (day 3). The VOSS centralized management platform has a common data store, which removes technical complexity and simplifies business processes, whilst increasing productivity, speeding implementation, cutting operating costs, and providing an integrated platform from which new UC services can be launched as and when required.

Peter Stavropoulos, CEO at FlexITy, comments; "We made the decision to invest in the VOSS service delivery platform because it enhances the value proposition to our customers, and allows us to differentiate our business around the delivery of next generation unified communications. However, a big driver for us was also the fact that VOSS has worked closely with us on developing our business model and we are confident that VOSS will allow us to keep our costs low while we scale our managed services business."

Mike Frayne, CEO at VOSS, adds; "We have worked with FlexITy for several years now and they are a very important customer and channel partner for VOSS in the Canadian market. FlexITy has a successful practice in the delivery of Unified Communications Services and has taken this to the next level with the launch of their Managed Business Communications Services as fully compliant CLEC. We love working with companies who have a vision plus the ability to execute. They have built an impressive team and invested in the best of class infrastructure to provide their customers with a hosted managed solution that offers the ultimate in Unified Communications, off a lower cost base. VOSS is absolutely committed to FlexITy and we will be working to help them achieve their objectives and create the leading Managed Service Provider business in Canada".
