Thanks to the unprecedented growth of cloud communications, enterprise mobility, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS), the telecommunications marketplace continues to expand rapidly. In the next five years, recent research suggests the VoIP market will reach a value of $136.76 billion, while MarketsandMarkets predictsthe UCaaS sector to be worth $24.88 billion by 2020. According to IDC forecasts, cloud communications will also propagate, reaching $7.5 billion in 2018. The telecommunications sector’s unprecedented advancement paves the way for a host of new and emerging opportunities for channel partners, Value-Added Resellers (VARs), Systems Integrators (SIs), and other companies seeking to grow their business within this lucrative market.
For majority of these companies, the move to providing communications services is fairly fresh. With a history of operating as equipment vendors and maintenance or even professional services providers, they are accustomed to simple, straightforward and relatively narrow tax structures, or no taxes at all. Many are in for a rude awakening. This industry is riddled with transaction taxes, including sales taxes, communications taxes, excise taxes, gross receipts taxes, utility taxes, 911 fees and a host of Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and State Utility Commission regulatory fees, to name a few. Compounding these compliance and regulatory sales challenges for resellers is the task of developing loyal relationships with industry-leading manufacturers to create a comprehensive and effective solution set for customers.
To overcome these challenges, today’s resellers are choosing to form strategic alliances with distributers to build their telecommunications businesses instead of navigating the new and seemingly complex path alone. One distributor making a name for itself in enabling resellers to offer telecommunications services that they would otherwise be unable to offer is TelAgility. The company offers a comprehensive platform that encompasses new technology and solutions from leading manufacturers such as AT&T’s Managed Internet Services and MPLS Private Network Transport Services, and packages them into a cohesive solution coupled with total responsibility for all regulatory compliance.
