ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2013) - Veramark Technologies, Inc., today announced that its VeraSMART® wireline and wireless call accounting software are now featured within Ingram Micro Inc.'s (NYSE: IM) Solution Centers in Buffalo, New York and Santa Ana, California.
The Ingram Micro Solution Centers are state-of-the-art training and demonstration facilities designed to address the needs of IT solution providers who sell into the small-to-midsize, enterprise and consumer electronics markets. Within Ingram Micro's Solution Centers, the worlds of IT and consumer electronics merge to create the best technical solutions for home and business.
VeraSMART call accounting solutions save valuable time for busy Telecom Managers who are responsible for answering usage and expense reporting questions about their telephony and unified communications equipment. Veramark works closely with the Cisco Developer Network (CDN) program to offer call accounting for Cisco Unified Communications Manager (UCM) and Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express (CME/UC500), as well as call accounting for company mobile phones all in a single browser-based tool.
- Ingram Micro Solution Centers in Buffalo, New York and Santa Ana, California are now equipped to demonstrate the advantages of VeraSMART call accounting solutions to both end customers and resellers.
- VeraSMART wireline call accounting is compatible with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco CME/UC500, Avaya Aura® Communication Manager, Avaya Aura Session Manager, Avaya IP Office, Avaya's former Nortel PBX brands, Microsoft Lync, ShoreTel, Siemens, and many other telephony PBX manufacturers.
- VeraSMART wireless call accounting is compatible with AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon Wireless and saves wireless plan managers hours or days each month.
- Ingram Micro and its channel partners can configure Veramark products through the Netformx KnowledgeBase® and Netformx DesignXpert®, which includes Veramark's SKUs in the Ingram Micro US and Canada online ordering systems.
"End customers and resellers use Ingram Micro's Solution Centers to get experience with a wide range of new technologies they are evaluating for their telephony and communications," said Fran Murello, Sr. Manager, Solution Center, Ingram Micro US. "By adding VeraSMART® Call Accounting within our Solution Centers, we can now ensure that our visitors also see the benefit of a full-featured call accounting solution that simplifies usage and expense reporting in a Cisco UCM or CME/UC500 environment. Our Cisco partners can add call accounting value much easier with each Cisco UCM order, since VeraSMART SKUs are in the Ingram Micro and Canada ordering systems. Their end-customers can use a single software tool for "unified" wireline and wireless communications reporting starting day one."
"Telephony and UC technology resellers face a challenging task of helping each customer evaluate and determine the best mix of communications technologies for their business, even as those customers manage the on-going operations of their existing infrastructure," said Kari Bittner, Director of Telephony and Communications Products for Veramark. "VeraSMART Call Accounting is a labor-liberating reporting tool that enables busy Telecom Managers to quickly answer usage and expense questions, and get back to their larger strategic projects. Having VeraSMART in Ingram Micro's Solution Centers allows Ingram Micro and their channel partners to demonstrate the value of a proposed Unified Communications solution, as well as a key software tool that will enable the Telecom Manager to quickly respond to questions about usage and expenses related to that strategic new investment."
