Resellers Hail iQ Comms Platform
Posted on October 10, 2014
Nimans’ resellers gained top marks as they went back to the classroom to learn about the company’s expanding and exclusive iQ PBX comms platform – described by one attendee as the ‘best PBX on the market’.
A two-day technical training course took place at Nimans’ Manchester headquarters for skilled PBX installation engineers – ahead of the final course of the year on 25th and 26th November in Milton Keynes.
Network settings, security, capacities and major features were all covered along with configuring extensions, storage management and troubleshooting.
Speaking afterwards, a Bristol-based dealer said the iQ PBX has revolutionised his business. “It’s the best PBX you can buy. Its flexibility and adaptability are unmatched. The system works on SIP, GSM, ISDN and analogue making it extremely flexible. We sell a lot of them into the taxi industry and put a lot of resilience behind them as our customers insist there’s no down time. Reliability is crucial as some sites are taking in excess of 5,000 calls per day which is a huge amount for any voice solution. Price is important but it’s not the defining factor. It’s all about performance.”
He added: “We’ve been selling the IQ since November last year and don’t sell anything else. The ability to remotely control it and do absolutely anything with it is so impressive. There’s no doubt we’ve captured lots of extra business. It’s a defining product in terms of our overall IT solution and a perfect fit for us. In terms of reliability, price and performance there’s nothing that can touch it.”
Nimans is the exclusive UK distributor of the innovative gateway solution which is available in three distinctive versions, from the sub 12 extension market up to over 300 users. RRP prices (ex VAT) start from £875 for the mid range x600i, £2,900 for the 2000 version and £4,900 for the larger 5000 unit. Various complementary products such as POE switches and iQ handsets are also available.
iQ PBX Business Manager, Judith Addison, says the Asterisk-based platform offers resellers a cost effective route into today’s expanding VoIP PBX arena – all-in-one technology (with optional applications) that’s straightforward to configure, implement and support.
“The event culminated in a test for attendees to achieve certified partner status and I am pleased to say they all passed with flying colours,” she enthused.
