Milwaukee, Wis. – February 24, 2015 – Corvisa LLC, a single source provider of cloud communications solutions, today announced a strategic alliance with leading connectivity partner and telecom master agency, PlanetOne Communications. The new relationship will play a key role in Corvisa’s recently announced Channel Partner Program and expanded go-to-market strategy.

As part of the new agreement, PlanetOne will further extend its broad portfolio of telecom solutions to include Corvisa, and provide its nationwide network of partners with greater opportunities to increase their cloud-based revenues. Additionally, Corvisa’s ability to serve as a “one stop shop” for cloud contact center, business phone system and connectivity services, along with its open communications platform will help streamline the vendor experience for both PlanetOne partners and their customers.

“With telecom solutions becoming more complex, the ease of doing business with a single company that can provide a comprehensive solution that meets the customer’s technology requirements becomes more relevant,” said Jonathan Hartman, vice president sales for PlanetOne. “Corvisa brings a seamless end user experience through their integrated contact center and PBX offerings, which in turn will help our partners strengthen the relationships they have with their customers, and position themselves as a “go-to” technology resource. We are excited about expanding our portfolio through the Corvisa relationship, and look forward to leveraging the flexibility afforded by their Summit Platform."

The Summit Platform, which serves as the foundation for the Corvisa product suite, offers customers the ability to customize Corvisa products or to create their own voice/SMS apps to meet unique business needs. Supported by Corvisa’s carrier-grade network and true cloud architecture, PlanetOne partners will have the flexibility and scalability needed to create customized solutions for customers ranging from small businesses to top tier enterprise contact centers.

“PlanetOne is a strategic connectivity partner and top master agency for a reason – they consistently deliver best-in-class solutions and an amazing experience for their partners and customers. Corvisa is excited to team with PlanetOne because of the shared valued they place on exceptional service and maintaining an entrepreneurial spirit. We look forward to providing PlanetOne and its partners with the cloud solutions and support needed to continue their rapid growth,” said Piet Knight, Corvisa vice president channel sales.
