Master agency Telarus has signed an agreement with StartMeeting, provider of video and audio conferencing solutions, to distribute its wares via Telarus’ 1,200 independent telecommunications and managed services channel partners.
“As a long-time admirer of Telarus’ agent following and stellar reputation in the channel, I am excited to work closely with their management team to enhance their agent’s product offering to include high definition audio and Web conferencing” commented Greg Plum, vice president of channel development for StartMeeting. “StartMeeting represents the best of the collaboration services available today. We think that our products will be a perfect fit for the large segment of end-user businesses who are looking for a more cost-effective alternative to the other conferencing solutions available today, without sacrificing functionality.”
StartMeeting has created and owns proprietary technology that allows audiences of up to 1,000 to collaborate in real time via the phone, Internet, or both.
“We are excited to be working with StartMeeting, not just because of their easy-to-use conferencing solution, but because of the people who support it,” said Lanny Gray, vice president of business development for Telarus. “Our partners are very excited to be able to set up free StartMeeting accounts for their clients, and then watch them grow over time. There is little-to-no risk to get started, with unlimited up-side once the end-user feels comfortable with StartMeeting and starts to ramp up paid usage. It’s a perfect formula.”
StartMeeting will make its official debut to the Telarus channel at the annual Telarus Partner Summit in Park City, Utah on June 18, 2013.
