Intermedia extends Hosted PBX to a new set of partners: ADI dealers

You’ve probably heard of ADI. It’s North America’s leading wholesale distributor of security and low voltage products. With 100+ branch locations, ADI dealers offer their customers a wide range of services—including burglar alarms, fire alarms, CCTV, access control, and more.

Today we’re pleased to announce that ADI dealers have access to a new product: Intermedia’s Hosted PBX.

Intermedia’s Hosted PBX phone service will allow ADI dealers to sell a cloud-based phone service on a per-seat basis. Hosted PBX is designed specifically for small and medium-sized businesses, and it typically offers significant cost savings over older, on-premises systems.

A new kind of offering for ADI dealers

Hosted PBX allows dealers to capitalize on the massive transition taking place as IT and telecom infrastructure moves into the cloud. It also offers ADI dealers the opportunity to earn recurring monthly revenue in addition to revenue on the initial installation. This new revenue model will make telecom service very attractive for them to sell.

Here’s what ADI’s Vice President of Marketing Andy Morra had to say about their partnership with Intermedia:

“At ADI, we are always looking for technologies to help our dealers expand in today’s market. As cloud-based solutions continue to become more widespread, it was important for us to add cloud-based voice services. Intermedia is known for their service quality, ease of installation and capacity for large scale support, and we are looking forward to offering their solutions.”

Cloud-based phone system with enterprise-grade calling features

With Hosted PBX, ADI dealers will offer their customers the enterprise-grade calling features of Fortune 500 companies without the cost  and headache of maintaining an onsite PBX or key system hardware. By eliminating installation, programming and maintenance, ADI dealers can spend their time focusing on more important tasks – like nurturing and growing their customer base.

To help ensure our Hosted PBX service is easy to sell and maintain our VIP Desk works with ADI dealers to walk through every step of the selling and installation more. Learn more about Hosted PBX and ADI.
