April's Ideacom Conference Offers Ideas for Reseller/SI/VAR Growth


April is a wonderful time to visit Washington, D.C. The weather’s nice. The cherry trees are in bloom. And, this year, the Ideacom Conference 2018 – Communications Solutions for Business will be taking place.

This event, which will run April 8 through 10, will draw more than 100 independently owned telecom/IT resellers, VARs, and network integrators. They’ll come together to learn about opportunities to expand their businesses via hosted services, IP networks, network security, and unified communications.

The Ideacom program will feature a speech by Dr. Eric Burger (News - Alert). He’s the CTO of the Federal Communications Commission. Steve Grady, author of “IoT Transform – The System that Drives Successful Business Transformation using the Internet of Things”, and Rich Tehrani, founder of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine and CEO of TMC, will also give keynotes.

Such companies as Graybar, Intermedia (News - Alert), , NEC, Optus Inc., Presence Management, Target Distributing, Equus Compute Solutions, TBI, Vertical Communications, and Zultys will be there showing their solutions and discussing their value propositions.

An invitation to this event is just one of the many IDeACOM Network membership benefits. Others include:

• a higher level of support from voice and data manufacturers,

• increased buying power,

• marketing assistance,

• national partnerships, and

• more.

As a member of the IDeACOM Network, companies receive better manufacturer technical training and product support than they otherwise would. The Network also provides its members with preferred relationships with service provides, access to repair vendors, group health care, better leasing options, travel benefits, and much more. The buying power association members get from purchasing through the consortium results in major savings.

The IDeACOM Network helps its members marketing efforts by providing access to customer newsletters, sales training, and web development services. It welcomes members into a community with which they can share best practices and find solutions and support.

“The benefits we’ve gained since joining Ideacom have been extremely advantageous and helped to quickly improve profitability,” says Steve McDonald (News - Alert) of Taylored Systems. “The IDeACOM Network delivers to our reseller business collaborative buying power to lower equipment purchasing costs and offers easy access to a variety of vendor products for adding service offerings more quickly and economically than going it alone. Invaluable has been the ability to share ideas with like-minded business owners, opening up our minds on ways for providing services to customers and learning the rewards and challenges when venturing into new product lines.”

The Ideacom Conference is a great opportunity for IDeACOM Network members to come together for that purpose. This invitation-only event also is an ideal time for non-members to come and check out what they have to gain through IDeACOM Network membership.
