Intermedia Unite Empowers SMBs to Embrace Unified Communications
We are thrilled to announce the availability of Intermedia Unite™, an easy-to-use Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) platform designed to fuel more productive and collaborative work environments for SMBs and the partners that serve them.
With Intermedia Unite, users get a next-generation phone system, plus integrated screen sharing, video collaboration, and backup and file sharing. And is the case with all Intermedia products, Unite is backed by our J.D. Power-certified 24/7 support experts and a 99.999% uptime service level agreement.
Vast expertise in the large and fast-growing UCaaS market
Intermedia Unite is an extension of our existing communication and collaboration offerings, building off over 20 years of delivering voice solutions and managing 11+ billion minutes of voice traffic. Our CEO, Michael Gold, elaborates:
“Voice and UCaaS are the highest growth areas of our company, now accounting for nearly half of our total new business. Through our recent AnyMeeting acquisition, we’ve joined video collaboration and screen sharing with our leading Cloud PBX and workplace collaboration offerings in one extremely secure, reliable, and robust product. The result is Intermedia Unite, a truly integrated, highly mobile UCaaS platform that enables businesses to realize greater productivity and collaboration while being even easier for partners to sell, set up, manage, and support.”
We asked Frost & Sullivan’s VP of Digital Transformation, Elka Popova to quantify the market opportunity, and for her perspective on our new offering:
“We expect the North American Hosted Internet Protocol (IP) Telephony and UCaaS market to experience double-digit growth expanding from $3.75 billion in 2016 to $14.83 billion in 2023*. The market is relatively untapped and can support a large number of providers, each with its own diverse background and skill set. Intermedia is positioned for long-term success within this space, as it builds upon an already successful voice business, a partner-friendly model and a cloud leadership position, combined with a strong focus on enabling SMBs’ digital transformation.”

New intuitive partner tools shorten sales cycle
We built Unite with an eye toward making it the easiest UCaaS solution for partners to sell, provision, install, and support. With the launch of this platform come new partner enhancements to help partners further shorten the sales cycle and generate strong new revenue streams. These include self-service ordering, a robust new web portal, and new partner quoting system. This is in addition to all the sales training, brandable marketing and sales materials, and concierge sales support you’re used to – and yes, we still manage all the taxation requirements!
