SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 10, 2012) - IntelePeer, Inc., a leading provider of on-demand, cloud-based communications, today announced a new partnership with Conquest Technology Services, a Microsoft Gold Partner.
The companies will work together to provide Microsoft Lync™ Unified Communications (UC) solutions to business customers. Customers can take advantage of a special trial program, the "Lync Experience Voice Now" pilot service, which offers 30 days of complimentary service and UC headsets for 10 users making it easy for business owners to experience Microsoft Lync for themselves. The pilot service will be offered and managed by Conquest and will feature IntelePeer's CoreCloud™ SIP trunking to provide carrier services and PSTN access.
"Despite clear productivity and cost advantages, some business owners remain concerned that solutions such as Microsoft Lync will be too complex or lead to less reliable UC connections," said Ben Tosado, founder and vice president, Professional Services, for Conquest Technology Services. "This trial program provides a no-risk way for businesses to experience Microsoft Lync first-hand, and we are confident customers will come away impressed by the performance and ease of deployment. IntelePeer's carrier-class SIP trunking technology plays a key role in this process, delivering crystal clear, reliable connections and contributing to cost-effective operations."
"Microsoft Lync, paired with the quality and value of IntelePeer SIP trunking services, delivers a very compelling business solution," said Margaret Norton, general manager, Enterprises, at IntelePeer. "This evaluation program, in cooperation with Conquest and Microsoft, promises to accelerate the adoption of Microsoft Lync and fuel a new wave of business productivity as customers embrace the range of rich media services available through our combined offerings."
IntelePeer provides a comprehensive suite of on-demand communications and SIP trunking services that are backed by deep communications expertise to ensure partners' Microsoft Lync deployments are successful. Through its CloudWorx™ Communications as a Service platform, IntelePeer delivers feature-rich, carrier-quality service over public or private Internet Protocol (IP) connections. IntelePeer's patented platform combines Media Peering Grid™ services and the SuperRegistry® directory to connect disparate UC environments and seamlessly enable full-featured multi-modal communications for any user.
