TMC's Rich Tehrani to Speak at Cloud Voice Alliance UCaaS Event

By Greg Tavarez October 03, 2023

Traditional on-premises systems are less relevant in today's business environment, primarily due to their lack of flexibility and scalability. These systems require substantial upfront investments in hardware and infrastructure, making them costly to set up and maintain. They also lack the agility required to adapt to rapidly changing business needs and the demands of a mobile workforce.

In contrast, providers that offer cloud-based solutions like cloud-based PBX (News - Alert) and UCaaS offer businesses the ability to scale up or down as needed, reduce capital expenditures, and provide seamless access to communication tools from anywhere, making them a more cost-effective and adaptable choice for modern enterprises.

The challenge for providers (especially locally owned providers) is that they compete against large national and multi-national telecom providers and can’t gain a foothold in the market. That is where the Cloud Voice Alliance comes into play. 

The CVA helps locally owned providers of Cloud-Based PBX and UCaaS services compete effectively against larger providers. They provide resellers with networking, education and marketing support to build awareness in the market, providing a collaborative environment where members can share best practices, pool resources and leverage buying power that increases profitability.

That said, the CVA is also hosting The UCaaS Event, an interactive online experience centered on providers of cloud voice services and hosted PBX operating under their own brand, scheduled for October 25-26. This live event is set to feature more than a dozen highly targeted sessions, with opportunities to engage with speakers and panelists through voice and video interactions.

One session, titled "Scaling in the Digital and AI-enabled Age: A Conversation with Rich Tehrani (News - Alert)," will take place at 9:00 AM on October 26. TMC CEO and Chief Editor Rich Tehrani will engage in a thought-provoking conversation with Bill Miller, the host of "The CEO Success Stories" webinar series for the CVA.

Together, they will explore the challenges and opportunities of scaling in the digital and AI-enabled age, shedding light on strategies that organizations can adopt to thrive in today's rapidly evolving business landscape. Tehrani and Miller have decades of experience and extensive knowledge of technology trends. Both are dynamic, engaging presenters, setting up this session to be a highlight of the event.

The UCaaS Event offers CVA members an opportunity to delve into trends and strategies in voice and video communications, equipping attendees with actionable insights applicable to their businesses. From grasping UCaaS technology advancements to effectively marketing and selling these features to end-users, the knowledge gained at this event has the potential to transform your organization.

The Founding Sponsors include prominent names like Bigleaf Networks, Reinvent Telecom, Sandy Beaches Software (News - Alert), TeamMate Technology, White Label Communications, Hornetsecurity, GreenStar Marketing, Viirtue and SkySwitch. Additionally, each sponsor will host live booths during exhibit hall hours, enabling participants to access and engage with content from sponsors while connecting with booth staff via voice and video communication channels.

“These sponsors are taking a leadership role in the UCaaS industry by being a founding sponsor of The UCaaS Event,” said Bill McClain, President of the CVA. “They are bringing the best in technologies and services to our members. They are sharing their expertise in a way that is specific and immediately actionable for our members.”

Basic membership in the CVA is free, and anyone who registers for The UCaaS Event will immediately be granted a free membership.
