CBTS Launches Enterprise Hosted Communications Solution


CINCINNATI, Sept. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CBTS, a leading technology solutions provider and a Cisco Powered Solutions partner, introduces the Enterprise Hosted Communications Solution (EHCS).  EHCS is a cloud-based service that allows businesses to increase productivity using market-leading Cisco unified communications and collaboration tools based on the Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution and hosted and managed by CBTS.  This allows enterprise organizations to stop worrying about their phone systems by relying on a proven communications leader to set-up, manage and maintain.

CBTS has set up dedicated communications systems that have resulted in significant benefits to our customers.  Given the overwhelming positive feedback, we are now introducing EHCS, which represents a standardized offering that allows any enterprise organization to receive the same benefits as a dedicated solution.

The benefits of EHCS include:

  • A full suite of the latest collaboration tools including voice, video, instant messaging, presence and mobility that will help companies and employees innovate, collaborate and maximize productivity, regardless of where they are located.

  • A predictable, monthly price per handset, with the ability to quickly scale users up or down with ease. Organizations only pay for what they need with no onboarding or startup fees, which translates into lower overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

  • Frees up valuable IT resources to focus on adding value to their core business – not on managing their telecommunications system.

  • Avoids the need for major upgrades to an aging voice and video communications system, saving significant time and cost.

“CBTS is excited to be combining our world-class service and support with Cisco’s latest technology into this EHCS offering.  Our team is committed to serving as a trusted partner to enterprises across the country,” said Greg Samuels, Senior Director, Unified Communications Practice for CBTS.

CBTS is one of a select number of Cisco partners around the country to hold Masters, Specialty and Gold Certifications.

“The unified communications space is growing rapidly and many organizations are looking for help from reliable providers.  CBTS is a proven organization and Cisco is proud to work with such a valuable partner,” said Andy Dignan, Senior Director - Cloud Collaboration Worldwide Sales & Go To market for Cisco.

CBTS provides customized communications solutions to enterprise organizations including multiple Fortune 500 companies.
