Carriers can now deliver a complete solution that addresses today’s business communications requirements of integrated voice and collaboration tools with the emergence of ANPI’s Unified Communications Suite Private Label Package.
PRESS RELEASE: Springfield, IL (September 23, 2013)- Today ANPI announced their Hosted Unified Communications (UC) Solution Private Label Package has reached general availability for Carriers. As the only complete end-to-end solution specifically developed for ILECs, ANPI provides all the advanced features, tools and collateral carriers need to immediately market, sell and deliver an innovative, custom-branded hosted UC solution to their customers. More than just technology, the fully-integrated solution includes Hosted IP PBX functionality with unified messaging, presence, multimedia collaboration and seamlessly integrated mobility. Carriers can also choose to receive marketing support and lead generation.
ANPI designed a 3-step ordering process effectively simplifying the complicated end-user sales process for carriers while simplifying the administration and monitoring needs for both the carrier and the end-user. Through an innovative and intuitively designed widget-based Customer Portal, carriers can allow end-users to quickly and easily control every aspect of their system and user experience.
“Our mission is to bring new and enabling solutions to the carrier community to ensure their most successful and profitable days are in front of them, not behind them,” shared ANPI CEO Dave Lewis. “The hosted market is a multi-billion dollar marketplace with a tremendous growth profile, and with ANPI’s unfolding suite of hosted solutions, together we are well positioned to realize the opportunities attendant to this growing and vibrant marketplace.”
Ram Narayanaswamy, ANPI CIO/CTO, led multiple interdepartmental teams of user interface designers, software developers and network engineers to build the solution. ANPI ambitiously combines all aspects of business communications technology into one solution to save carriers time and effort historically associated with sourcing and managing disparate systems while also alleviating the administrative burden typically attendant to managing the system needs of today’s power users.
“We paid careful attention to both the carriers’ needs and the end-user experience at every stage to ensure shopping, provisioning and post-sale support provided a complete solution worthy of carriers’ brands,” explained Ram Narayanaswamy. “Our design criteria required the team to take diverse and complex technologies across multiple topologies and render a unique, intuitively designed solution set that provides users tremendous power and capability in an elegantly simple to use framework.”
Kingdom Technologies was one of the first carriers to deploy ANPI’s Hosted UC Solution Private Label Package. Their EVP/COO Michael Fugate shared, “It is clear ANPI has put significant time and effort into assembling a very strong delivery team and set of technologies. As Independents, we are continually searching for new service and technology opportunities to augment or replace those segments of our business that have come under increasing pressure from changing regulation, evolving technology and larger, household-name competitors.”
ANPI’s Hosted UC Solution Private Label Package addresses a wide range of business needs with packages constructed to meet the diverse requirements of today’s businesses. For example, business executives crave the convenience of integrated mobility and collaboration, while a conference room extension may only require call management and unlimited local and long-distance. ANPI’s purpose built service packages are designed to enable specific business needs in an economically advantageous way.
