Digium Signs Cloud Master Agent Agreement with Aligned Communications
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 16, 2015—Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, today announced that Aligned Communications, a premier telecommunications master agency headquartered in Dallas, Texas, has joined the Digium Cloud Agent Program as a Master Agent. Aligned Communications is an expert in cloud communications services, assessing customer environments and making recommendations for the most cost-effective solution based on the customer needs.
The partnership provides the opportunity for Aligned Communications’ agents to expand their reach with Digium’s award-winning Switchvox Cloud Unified Communications (UC) solution, while maximizing commissions in the rapidly growing cloud services market. More than a hosted VoIP PBX, Switchvox Cloud is an affordably priced, full-featured UC cloud solution. Digium’s unique “all features included” pricing model for Switchvox Cloud takes the guesswork and complexity out of choosing and deploying an advanced business phone system.
“Digium’s Switchvox PBX has been a leader in the premises-based SIP PBX market, dating back to the early 2000s when SIP first emerged. Aligned Communications and our agents view their push into the cloud space with Switchvox Cloud and Digium SIP Trunking as the next step in their continued market leadership,” said Dave Wallace, president of Aligned Communications. “We also see Digium’s Switchvox Rescue product as the perfect bridging solution for those traditionally premises-based dealers to show their customers a path to the cloud. Switchvox Cloud is easy to quote, with its all-inclusive feature set. This keeps the customer conversation focused on all the ways they can use Digium’s innovative features and easy to understand UI. Digium will be a major player in our hosted PBX portfolio.”
“Aligned Communications brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and leadership in the cloud services industry by providing excellent analysis and delivery of solutions that fit each customer perfectly,” said Jim Butler, Digium’s director of global channel sales. “We are excited to have Aligned Communications offer Switchvox Cloud and Digium SIP Trunking to its network of cloud agents. The addition of Aligned Communications demonstrates the growing popularity of Digium Cloud Services and the market expansion of cloud communications.”
