OUR STORY The History Frustrated by companies with fragmented tools and no focus on the users The Idea The Best Mouse Traps already exist in the Cloud, We don’t build anything, and we don’t want to build anything. The Now The Focus is on User Experience, Not Technology Mike Leuthner President

If I migrate my existing voice services (VoIP/traditional) to “the cloud” my voice quality will be reduced and I will have less control over my settings and infrastructure. Answer: Fiction! New carrier-grade Hosted telephone solutions are a world apart from Internet-based hosted solutions, offering businesses of all sizes significant advantages over premise-based PBXs and traditional “VoIP” Mike Leuthner President
    • 8. UC Fact or Fiction? Question? Doesn’t Unified Communications cost a lot of money and require a lot of configuration, maintenance, and work for our organization? Answer: Fiction! The truth is traditional on-premise Unified Communications (UC) requires this, but not Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) as it is a service-based and is a complete turn-key solution for businesses. Mike Leuthner President
    • 9. UCaaS is Changing the UC Definition BUT, in a good way... Worldwide UCaaS revenue will reach $4.1 billion by 2017 28/09/2013 "Revenue from UCaaS will grow on average by 18.8% a year to $4.1 billion by 2017, making it by far the fastest growing market segment,’ said Phillip Pexton, Research Analyst at Canalys. ‘The emergence of multi-tenant platforms offering voice, video, messaging, presence and contact center capabilities from a single source will accelerate the move from on-premises solutions. It will enable channel partners to offer more innovative packages to customers,’ Pexton added. ‘Businesses are looking to reduce complexity and optimize budgets. They will increasingly assess UCaaS offerings that promise to eliminate CapEx and help manage OpEx by combining unlimited fixed and mobile use on a per-user, per-month basis," he added. Mike Leuthner President
