Digital Planet selects Telesphere for offering managed cloud communications services to U.S. businesses


Telesphere announced that Digital Planet will market and
sell its private, hosted voice, data and video services to businesses
throughout the U.S. market.


Digital Planet is the latest member of Telesphere’s
master agent network, which spans the contiguous 48 U.S. states and has driven
52 percent annual customer growth over the past three years.


Under the agreement, Digital Planet customers, agents and
partners now have access to Telesphere’s portfolio of business-grade,
cloud-based services including videoconferencing, unified communications, VoIP,
Internet connectivity, WAN management and call center solutions.


Telesphere’s team of dedicated network engineers and
indirect channel managers will support Digital Planet agents and partners to
enable fast provisioning and a consistently high-quality user experience.


“Digital Planet’s decision to invest in hosted
communications solutions highlights that it’s a progressive master agency.
We’re excited to work with a company that’s so aggressively pursuing the cloud
opportunity and, just as important, understands that business-grade hosting is
key to attracting and retaining business customers. We look forward to working
with them and their family of sub-agents to help bring our products and
services to their customers nationwide,” said Jeff Savage, vice president of
sales, Telesphere.


Over the past decade, many master agents and their
sub-agents have attempted to shift their customers to communications services
hosted by a third party, only to find that their partners were unable to
provide the level of engineering support, sales support and quality of service
that those customers demand.


“Cloud communications is where the industry is
headed, and Telesphere is leading the way with innovation. Telesphere is a
great addition to our portfolio and enables our agents and partners that
currently lack an equipment offering to now offer a complete communication
solution to their clients. As communications technologies converge, if your
offering is not complete, you are not going to survive,” said Shawn
Schmidt, president and founder, Digital Planet.


Telesphere enables its master agents and sub-agents
to meet those expectations by providing:


Telesphere recently announced Telesphere VideoConnect, a hosted video service that enables any size business
to implement videoconferencing quickly and cost-effectively by targeting its
webcam-equipped PCs, room-based video systems, videophones, smartphones,
tablets and softphones.


Telesphere VideoConnect expands the company’s already
broad range of cloud-based business communication solutions, such as hosted
voice, hosted call center and hosted call recording for businesses.
