snom technology AG, a developer and manufacturer of IP phones, has announced that UK VoIP internet phone service provider, Voipfone, which provides a wide range of hosted VoIP services to small businesses and residential customers, has been approved as an advanced level service provider partner.
snom’s service provider accreditation scheme enables resellers to help end users make the most of their snom’s handsets with high-quality partners in other areas of the VoIP network.
The advanced service provider accolade is awarded based on PBX functionality.
Features including call transfer, voice mail integration and hold music were tested using Voipfone’s service to ensure they were fully compatible with the snom handsets.
Voipfone, a founding member of ITSPA, the UK’s industry trade group, can now display the snom accreditation symbol on its website and marketing collateral and will also benefit from a listing on snom’s website, so resellers know it is a trusted partner whose services are interoperable with snom phones.
UK sales manager for snom, Nelly Monkhouse, said: “We have been working with Voipfone through one of our established distributors, ProVu, since 2005 and we are delighted it has passed the interoperability testing to work with us as an advanced level service provider.
Here at snom, we are dedicated to aligning with partners that meet our high standards and help us to ensure that our customers get the most from their VoIP phones.”
Colin Duffy, CEO of Voipfone, commented: “We’re really pleased to be working with snom as an advanced service provider.
“Voipfone has been recommending snom telephones to our customers for over five years now and we’re so confident of their reliability, technology and professional support that we have built our service around them.
“It’s this partnership of great phones and a great network that has enabled Voipfone to win the 2009 UK Small Business VoIP Service Provider of the year award from ITSPA.”
