The global economy suffered a significant blow in 2008 when the market took a dive, leaving many companies scrambling to maintain their pre-recession revenues and budgets. The result is many of these organizations have had to tighten their budgets and limit their access to key functionality. The good news is that cloud computing and business VoIP service is enabling these organizations to still leverage next generation technologies, even when operating on a shoe-string budget.

One company operating in the business VoIP service space is Broadview Networks. And, according to this announcement, the company has been voted as a 2010 “Top 5 Provider of Hosted VoIP” services in the Telecommunications Association’s ‘Members Choice’ poll of the best TA vendors.

Broadview received the honor for its OfficeSuite business VoIP service, its hosted IP phone solution for business users. Additionally, TA members also recognized Broadview as a “Top 10 CLEC” and as a “Top 10 Integrated Access” provider. A complete list of award winners in 26 categories can be found at TA Vote 2010.

For its part, Broadview continues to be recognized for its products, services and partner programs by other organizations and third parties. The company was named a Top 50 Channel Program by Phone (News - Alert)+/Channel Partners magazine in 2010, and was cited as one of the Top 75 Coolest Telecom Service Providers by CRN.

The business VoIP service provider offers the OfficeSuite as its flagship hosted IP phone solution, providing businesses with everything needed to communicate over the phone and online, without a capital investment.

The OfficeSuite includes a complete cloud-based phone system with phones, more than 40 calling features, an intuitive and simple-to-use Web portal to manage the service, and a robust calling plan shared among the users at a given site. Companies can also leverage the business VoIP service in the company’s FrontLine MPLS service to securely connect locations in a fully meshed and QoS-enabled data network.

“Broadview is delighted to be recognized by the members of the Telecommunications Association, not only for the company’s OfficeSuite hosted IP phone solution and Integrated Access products, but also for being named as a top 10 competitive LEC/communications service provider. Businesses are presented with many choices for telecom services by the growing field of providers and resellers, so to be acknowledged by such an august group is highly gratifying,” said Rob Westervelt, senior vice president of Channel Partner (News - Alert) Sales for Broadview Networks, in a statement.

The TA is a membership organization of 3,800 telecom agents, value-added resellers (VARs), managed service providers (MSPs), distributors, consultants and auditors that recommend and distribute telecom, data and IT technology products and solutions to businesses. Members are invited each year to vote on the best vendors in multiple categories.
