VoIP Innovations Launches Showroom, First CPaaS Marketplace for the Channel
Pittsburgh, PA – March 14, 2019 – VoIP Innovations (VI) is proud to announce that it has launched its VoIP Innovations Showroom platform. The VI Showroom is an extension of the capabilities available within VI’s Apidaze CPaaS (Communications Platform as a Service) offering. The VI Showroom allows developers to distribute the apps and services they build to VI’s channel and client base of 2000 service providers and enterprises. It provides VI’s channel partners and resellers access to white-labeled CPaaS, as well as pre-built communications apps and services, creating a simple path to participate in the estimated $8.1 Billion marketplace for CPaaS services in 2019. VI Showroom initial applications and services will include natively-developed apps, as well as solutions from Voxist, VoIPly, and FaxLogic.
“We are proud to be the first company to enable white-labeled CPaaS with a built-in marketplace for the channel through our VoIP Innovations Showroom,” said David Walsh, CEO of VI. “Our Showroom allows developers and resellers to take CPaaS services to the next level by giving them more monetization options and additional service offerings. We’re also excited to bring a multitude of services to business subscribers all over the world.”
“We are thrilled to be distributing our new, cutting-edge voicemail service with high-quality transcription through the VoIP Innovations Showroom,” said Karel Bourgois, Founder, and CEO of Voxist. “This partnership gives us access to a vast network of resellers and enterprise clients that we would not be able to reach on our own. It’s a tremendous opportunity for us to further scale our business.”
“The VoIP Innovations Showroom lets apps integrate with phone systems building a more connected world. VoiPly will feature its SMS app in the Showroom, easily adding the ability to send and receive SMS messages from any PC, Mac, Android, or iOS device,” said Felix Yanko, Founding Partner of VoIPly.
The Showroom is a versatile platform that caters to three audiences:
- Developers – publish and monetize apps and services they develop.
- Resellers – white label the Showroom and offer value-added CPaaS enabled apps and services.
- Business Subscribers – purchase pre-built communications apps and services directly from the Showroom.
Developers can create communications services in the Admin Console and then leverage the Showroom as a global distribution platform to monetize the service. This gives them access to an established sales channel with thousands of potential customers. Through the admin console, developers can manage their services and subscribers with detailed reports, such as commissions and number of subscribers, messages, minutes, etc. If interested, developers will have access to reseller features as well.
Resellers will have the ability to white label the Showroom and its CPaaS features under their own brand. This gives resellers a one-of-a-kind solution that has the potential to grow their business on a global scale to better serve existing clients and to win new ones. Reselling the Showroom can also help to differentiate resellers from their competition and increase customer satisfaction by providing a wide range of pre-built apps. Resellers who are also interested in developing their own services in the Admin Console will have access to the Developer platform as well. Existing VoIP Innovations customers who want to use the Showroom will automatically have single-sign-on access between the VI BackOffice.
Business Subscribers can purchase pre-built services listed in the VoIP Innovations Showroom. Initial services include two-factor authentication, an advanced voicemail app from Voxist, high volume fax from FaxLogic, and business SMS from VoIPly Online.
