Migrating to BroadCloud fully-managed hosted service provides scalability to extend UC and PBX services from SMBs to large enterprises
GAITHERSBURG, Md., July 29, 2015 – BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) today announced that GlobalPhone Corporation (Gphone) will upgrade its hosted PBX and Unified Communications (UC) offering by migrating to BroadCloud®, a fully-managed hosted service that enables Gphone to speed time-to-market for delivering comprehensive UC services to their business customers, minimizing up-front investment and accelerating time to new service revenue.
Since 2004, GlobalPhone Corporation has leveraged the BroadWorks® platform to deliver hosted PBX services to small businesses and mid-market enterprises across the United States. Gphone sought a cloud-based solution that would allow the firm to scale within existing market segments and expand into larger enterprise segments as well.
"BroadCloud allows Gphone to easily scale our business, while covering the full business customer lifecycle, from initial quote to service activation and support with integrated UC services,” said Guy Jazynka, chief operating officer, GlobalPhone Corporation. “With the seamless introduction of these additional features and functionality it will allow us to target larger more technically sophisticated customers, while at the same time offering our existing customer base a value added suite of features."
Existing and prospective GlobalPhone Corporation business customers now gain access to UC-One® – a full unified communications experience that enhances productivity for the increasingly mobile workforce by making voice, video, business directories, call logs and instant messaging and presence available on a single application.
“Gphone’s hosted, UC, PBX and SIP trunking services, powered by BroadCloud, will provide its business customers with the ability to rapidly deploy and benefit from innovative communications services,” adds Josh Holmberg, vice president, sales, BroadSoft. “GlobalPhone is now positioned to scale from SMBs up to large enterprise customers, and we are thrilled they have selected BroadCloud to anchor this offering.”
