Strateq Sdn Bhd has entered into an strategic partnership with Intuittech Sdn Bhd, which says it’s the world’s largest Asterisk (News - Alert) solutions provider. Through the alliance, Strateq becomes the primary sales interface to market and distribute the complete portfolio of Asterisk-based telephony solutions from Intuitttech in the Asian region. Intuittech will be placing its technical and implementation team at all Strateq’s regional offices starting with Singapore and Thailand this year.

“We are glad to have Intuittech added on our partner ecosystem,” says Strateq’s Head of Infrastructure and Technology Services Tan Seng Kit. “We look forward to working together with Intuittech to achieve a mission to revolutionize open source telephony solutions for enterprises in the Asian market.

 "Together, Strateq and Intuittech will be the world’s largest Asterisk telephony solutions provider,” he adds. “We expect the partnership will contribute significantly to the group’s revenue in 2012 and help both companies carve a bigger share in the IP telephony market, while helping us to penetrate into new vertical markets.”

 Tan says that the partners believe Asia will be the next big wave of growth for Asterisk.

 Of course, Asterisk was created by Digium (News - Alert) Inc. and is a key open source solution. It is currently deployed on millions of servers worldwide to support telephone services for business and individual users.

 “Asterisk has made huge progress in the voice communications industry since it was introduced about 11 years ago,” says Daniel Krahenbuhl CEO of Intuittech Sdn Bhd. “Its appeal keeps growing as businesses look for quicker return-on-investment and technical flexibility from their telephony investment.”
