Fonality Upgrades Base Operating System to Better Support the Growth of Its Channel Partners

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

(DALLAS) – Fonality, the only provider of business phone systems and contact center solutions dedicated to serving small and midsize businesses, today announced the upgrade of the base operating system for its channel flagship IP-PBX solution, trixbox Pro. The move to CentOS 6.3 is designed to further support the future growth of Fonality’s channel partners.

The upgrade to the most recent version of CentOS will allow Fonality’s channel partners to source additional hardware options constructed on CentOS, expanding the list of servers, drivers and cards onto which partners are able to load trixbox Pro, Fonality’s hybrid-hosted IP-PBX and call center solution for resellers.

“By transitioning to the latest version of CentOS, we give our partners greater choice with respect to hardware and an opportunity to increase their margins when sourcing less-expensive hardware,” said David Scult, CEO of Fonality. “Expanding the compatibility of trixbox Pro with the latest server ­­and driver support means that more resellers in the United States and internationally can offer our unique, hybrid-hosted IP-PBX software.”

The president of a Southern California company specializing in technology solutions for small and midsize companies praised trixbox Pro and the CentOS upgrade. “The solution is extremely customer- and partner-friendly, allowing us to provide a superior customer support experience,” said David Chernay of CNS Planet, “And with the upgrades to the latest version of CentOS, we are able to source additional hardware, which in turn lowers our hard costs and increases the solutions’ overall margin.”

Fonality is a leader in business telephone communication, helping drive both the adoption and evolution of hybrid-hosted technology. Fonality grew its channel business by double digits in 2012 on the strength of trixbox Pro. The solution provides a best-of-breed approach with hardware sourced by the reseller residing on the customer’s premises while the control panel (along with additional collaboration and unified communication services) remains in the cloud with anywhere, anytime access by both the customer and partner (in a managed service offering).
