The Eatontown, N.J.-based Quintum, an innovator in VoIP technologies and a subsidiary of Network Equipment Technologies (News - Alert), is banking Bludis will bring a host of value added services for Quintum customers in the Italian market.
With the addition of Bludis to the Quintum team, the company expects to offer complete customer support packages including onsite installation, telephone support and advanced replacement contracts as well as pre-sales technical support, and is planning to launch Quintum technical training courses in Italy before the end of this year.
"Quintum's relationship with Bludis will enable us to expand our business efforts in Italy, particularly as it relates to Microsoft," said Chuck Rutledge (News - Alert), vice president of Marketing for Quintum. "Bludis has the expertise, certifications and business savvy to provide their customers with the best VoIP solutions on the market, and we are proud to partner with them for their 'go to market' strategy."
Bludis offers extensive outbound marketing to both resellers and end users with advertising, telemarketing, road shows and targeted web-based lead generation efforts. They also support their resellers with telesales, onsite visits, presales support, training and technical support, both onsite and remote.
In addition, the company is a Certified Technical Education Center for Microsoft, specializing in areas of communication and IT management to international enterprises. They are a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and their facilities are ISO 9001/2000 certified. In addition, Bludis provides services to a network of over 2,000 active resellers.
"The Quintum product portfolio is extensive and offers solutions that fit perfectly for our market and for our clients, and we are quite impressed by the efficiency and the level of Quintum's technical support," said Maurizio Erbani, Technical Director for Bludis. "We are very excited about partnering with Quintum."
Quintum’s international relations have greatly expanded as of late with the announcement of several key deals that incorporate the company’s Tenor VoIP MultiPath switches and gateways. Most recently, last month Quintum announced that TOHO Cinemas, the movie entertainment division of Toho Co., Ltd, deployed a VoIP network with Tenor VoIP MultiPath switches and gateways to more than 30 cinemas in Japan.
The deployment integrates the Asterisk (News - Alert) based phone system with the PBXs present already at each of the sites.
