ONECLOUD NETWORKS SHIFTS TO BROADSOFT’S BROADCLOUD FOR HOSTED BUSINESS UNIFIED COMMUNICATIONS SERVICE
BroadSoft’s fully managed cloud service enables OneCloud Networks to extend beyond PBX to rapidly deliver hosted UC services; expand U.S footprint.
GAITHERSBURG, Md., 16 April 2015 – BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) today announced that OneCloud Networks will upgrade its hosted PBX and Unified Communications (UC) offering by migrating to BroadCloud®, a fully-managed end-to-end service. BroadCloud enables OneCloud Networks to speed time-to-market for delivering comprehensive Unified Communication services to their business customers, minimizing up-front investment and accelerating time to new service revenue.
Since 2007, OneCloud Networks has leveraged the BroadWorks® platform to deliver hosted PBX services to small businesses and mid-market enterprises in the Dallas and New York City areas. OneCloud Networks sought a cloud-based solution that would allow the firm to expand its footprint nationally, while rapidly delivering new UC features to the market.
“BroadCloud significantly speeds our service innovation and, at the same time, increases our geographic market coverage,” said Haider Mirjat, chief solutions officer, OneCloud Networks. “With BroadSoft’s cloud service, we can now scale our solution nationally beyond current markets, while covering the full business customer lifecycle, from initial quote to service activation to support.”
Existing and future OneCloud Networks business customers now gain access to UC-One® – a full unified communications experience that transforms the way individuals communicate. Regardless of the user’s preferred mobile device, type of connectivity, or type of communication service connectivity (hosted or premise-based PBX), UC-One provides voice, video, business directories, call logs, instant messaging and presence availability through a single interface. BroadSoft service providers have the option to deploy UC services via the BroadWorks platform or via BroadCloud.
OneCloud Networks – and its business customers – will experience several key benefits by shifting to BroadSoft’s BroadCloud managed service, including:
- Ability to deliver full customer lifecycle support – With BroadSoft’s cloud infrastructure, OneCloud Networks can fully manage BroadCloud and customer lifecycle management, from initial quote to service activation to support. BroadSoft reduces operational costs so that OneCloud Networks can shift from being a “phone company” to a managed cloud solutions provider.
- Accelerated time to new service revenue – BroadCloud provides an enhanced user experience through BroadSoft’s web-based service operating platform and allows OnceCloud Networks to more quickly sell, provision, activate and bill for BroadCloud.
- Enhanced set of UC features beyond PBX – The BroadSoft UC-One application equips OneCloud Networks business customers of all sizes with a true mobile experience and access to a broad range of hosted Unified Communications services, such as video calling and conferencing, mobility, and unified messaging.
“OneCloud Networks is a forward thinking cloud innovator that recognizes the technologies, products and services businesses need to effectively communicate and collaborate,” added Ken Rokoff, vice president, BroadCloud, BroadSoft. “We are thrilled OneCloud Networks will leverage BroadCloud to rapidly deliver hosted communications services to market and to scale to an expanded national footprint.”
