How do I enter the cloud services industry from the premise-based world?
If you have been selling premise-based phone systems for any length of time, you understand the dramatic changes that have taken place in our world. Long gone are the days of multi-year maintenance contracts as end users at medium to large size enterprises are willing to roll the dice on maintenance and call you, or someone else if the system needs service. They will do their best to manage the service while they try to squeeze an extra four or five years out of the system.The days of big checks from carriers for signing a three year deal on a T1 seem like a distant memory. Let’s not forget the slashing of Capital Expense Budgets for new phone systems while companies use their cash on projects that will help grow their business versus operate their business. If all that isn’t fun enough, servers, desktops, and mobile devices are converging, making that old warhorse PBX in the closet about as relevant as a pager.Most of the phone system manufacturers have seen the writing on the wall and are trying to deliver a hosted-based solution to their partners. However, in all honesty, these players are in the business of manufacturing and distributing premise-based phone equipment. Delivering a monthly recurring service with the features and benefits needed in today’s marketplace is a completely different proposition. Staffing a support and installation team to manage and service hosted customers is a new business for traditional PBX providers.So what do you do if you are a traditional interconnect trying to grow your business in a rapidly evolving marketplace?
