Stramaglio Consulting announced that Intermedia Cloud Communications has joined The Consortium, a think tank of imaging industry leaders.
Intermedia is a cloud communications company that helps over 135,000 businesses connect better – through voice, video conferencing, chat, contact center, file sharing and backup, along with business email, security, and more – from wherever, whenever. Intermedia eliminates the need for multiple communications service providers with a seamlessly integrated portfolio of communications and collaboration solutions – all delivered through one highly reliable, secure, and intelligent platform.
As a partner-first company, Intermedia provides a comprehensive set of programs, resources, and support to help partners grow their revenue and maximize their success. Programs include the Customer Ownership Reseller (CORE™) model – which enables partners to resell, package, and manage Intermedia’s solutions as if they were their own, while benefiting from highly attractive economic terms and maintaining ownership of their customer relationships – as well as agent models.
As a new member of The Consortium, Intermedia offers the office equipment dealer channel with an easy on-ramp into Managed IT, with its cloud communications platform being a natural component of the office workspace. In recent years, as businesses continue to transition to remote and hybrid work models and switch from inflexible and costly on-premises business phone systems to inherently mobile and versatile cloud communications solutions in the process, Intermedia has helped a growing number of office equipment dealers add cloud communications and collaboration products to their portfolios. Delivered through a Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription model, these solutions, coupled with Intermedia’s comprehensive sales, training, marketing, onboarding, technical, and billing support, are providing office equipment dealers with a new and significant source of monthly recurring revenue.
“We are excited to join this exciting group of industry and thought leaders to offer diversity of products, technologies, and growth in this market,” said Patrick Sheehan, Vice President of Channel Development and Distribution at Intermedia. “We look forward to helping these partners drive monthly recurring revenues with our easy-to-deploy and manage intelligent communications backed by our world-class support and partner program. The communications market is rapidly transitioning to the cloud, which represents a significant opportunity for our partners to help their customers modernize their businesses.”
The Consortium is assembled by Mike Stramaglio, president and CEO of Stramaglio Consulting, in order to establish an open collaborative platform that enables the Imaging Channel to embrace and lead Digital Transformation (DX).
“We are so excited to have Intermedia join the Consortium,” said Mike Stramaglio. “I am confident their solutions will keep helping the industry move quickly towards Managed IT arena and their collaboration with other leaders in the Consortium will create another unique strategy and strong combined solutions that the industry will get great benefit from.”
