SUNNYVALE, CA (September 6, 2006) - Actiontec Electronics has launched a reseller program for its VoSKY Exchange product, a PBX add-on that enables businesses to access Skype's Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) service to make and receive free and low-cost long-distance phone calls to and from any destination worldwide. The combination of VoSKY Exchange and Skype can yield major cost savings for businesses with multiple locations, remote workers and/or customers, partners and suppliers in other cities.
VoSKY Exchange is the first Skype-certified solution enabling businesses of 10 to 300 employees to take full advantage of Skype's service. It adds up to four outgoing Skype lines to the PBX without any changes to existing PBX equipment, phones or user PCs, and it allows every phone extension in the office to use the Skype service.
VARs that sell, install and support telecom and networking products can use VoSKY Exchange as a vehicle to generate additional revenue from existing PBX/KTS customers as well as expand their customer base by offering the opportunity to tap into the world's largest VoIP network. Furthermore, small-to-medium sized businesses with offices overseas can cost-effectively and efficiently collaborate and communicate with their customers, partners and suppliers using the Skype network. Skype has over 113 million registered users and has no signup or monthly access fees. Calls are free between Skype users and cost as little as 2 cents per minute for non-Skype users, even for overseas calls.
Resellers receive on-site and online sales and technical training sessions, sales and marketing tools, technical support, special certified reseller pricing, media campaigns, lead generation, and other services to support resellers' efforts. They are also eligible to participate in beta testing of new VoSKY products.
