Intelisys Selects Thinking Phone Networks as its Cloud UC Provider

Tools

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., February 26, 2013 – Thinking Phone Networks, the smart choice in cloud unified communications (UC), today announced that Intelisys, a leading master agency, has selected Thinking Phones for its own cloud-based UC services. Intelisys has deployed the award-winning ThinkingSuite solution throughout its organization to improve employee productivity and collaboration while minimizing costs.

Intelisys first engaged with Thinking Phone Networks in 2012 when it added ThinkingSuite to the product and service portfolio it offers to midsized and larger enterprise businesses. Later, when Intelisys decided to replace its own communications systems—including a first-generation, standalone hosted VoIP platform —it was clear that Thinking Phone Networks had the best UC as a Service (UCaaS) solution.

"Intelisys is renowned for helping businesses make smart decisions about strategic technology services," said C. Carl Moore, Vice President of Business Development at Thinking Phone Networks. "There are few things more rewarding than having a partner of such high caliber select our platform for their own deployment."

Intelisys chose the ThinkingSuite platform for its deeply-integrated communications and collaboration applications, including rich cloud IP PBX capabilities and a mobile client that connects employees wherever they are located. In addition, Intelisys deployed ThinkingSuite's point-to-point video, video conferencing, presence and softphone applications for both office-based staff and remote workers who use smartphones and tablets to access network services. The company also uses the ThinkingSuite contact center service to help Intelisys representatives better serve their national network of business partners.

"We know what it takes to make a world-class cloud UC platform, and Thinking Phone Networks' solution has exceeded our expectations," said Andrew Pryfogle, Intelisys Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cloud Services and Complex Bids. "We're impressed not only with their breadth of capabilities, but also with how much easier it is for our employees to communicate using ThinkingSuite mobility and video applications as part of their everyday work lives."
