TouchTone Unveils Hosted VoIP Offer for Channel Associates

SipTrunkingReport Contributor

TouchTone Communications recently unveiled a hosted VoIP offer especially for its channel associates and their clients. A Tier 1 network, available across the country, is used for completely administering TouchTone hosted VoIP, commonly known as TouchTone digital phone service.

The offer, valid for all seats on a client’s account, will offer three months of service for no extra cost to customers entering into a two-year contract. Valid till July 31, 2013, the latest promotion provides the channel associates a chance to receive a direct cash bonus of $50 for each seat. For every 25 seats sold in a single calendar month, they will also be eligible for an extra $1,000. The normal outstanding commissions will not be affected by this offer.

In a statement, Ken McCormack, VP, Sales and Marketing, TouchTone said, “The agent actually wins twofold with this promotion – through the upfront bonuses and the customer incentive. For example, an agent can save a customer with a 7 seat account over $520 just for signing up for service. This doesn’t take into account how much hosted VoIP will save the customer in the long run.”

Customers are offered infinite local and long distance connections to the Continental U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and 18 worldwide locations for an affordable price of $24.99 each month for one seat. The service includes a minimum of 20 powerful calling features like voicemail to e-mail, call forwarding, caller ID, five-way calling, and extension dialing for no extra cost.

McCormack said, “Many people are deterred by VoIP because they fear that the quality of calls will be poor. We pride ourselves on not only delivering an affordable service, but a superior product. TouchTone assures high quality of service so calls do not suffer from delays, weird sounds, or echoes. With TouchTone’s hosted VoIP, you hear calls just like you would over a landline phone.”

According to Liza DuVal, VP of UCC, TouchTone’s billing is steady every month with no unknown bills or shocks. Customers are able to experience high-quality calls, completely free of any static. TouchTone offers countrywide voice, data/Internet and VoIP offerings to residential, enterprise, government, and wholesale clients.
