Which Telephony Platform
Should You Sell?
DOWNLOAD THE FULL WHITE PAPER
Don’t put all your eggs in the same basket. Diversify to win.
You are probably already selling a well-known brand like Cisco BroadWorks or Avaya or Mitel and you have probably lost business opportunities because your price was too high or your competitor was able to turn around quickly and adapt their solution to meet the customer’s special needs.
You probably wished that you had another offering to beat your emerging competitors. There is no system that can meet all needs. The best strategy is “Diversify to Win”.
What if you can find a system that adds value to your current well-known brand while offering a standalone alternative when needed? It would be the best of both worlds: Enhance the features of your existing brand or replace it to compete against newer technologies.
How to Select the Best Telephony Platform?
You should look for a platform that will enable you to develop longer, more profitable relationships with your customers that increase your profit margins. Here are the most important features to look for when shopping for a telephony platform to resell.
Understanding the Accessible Canada Act and What it Means for You
Canadians live in a great country that helps its citizens when they need it. Health care is free and there are several programs to help Canadians get on their feet during tough times.
It only made sense for the Canadian Government to put into action the Accessible Canada Act.
The purpose of the Accessible Canada Act is to make Canada barrier-free for employees with disabilities by January 1, 2040.
Here are the act's principles and scope:
- everyone must be treated with dignity
- everyone must have the same opportunity to make for themselves the life they are able and wish to have
- everyone must be able to participate fully and equally in society
- everyone must have meaningful options and be free to make their own choices, with support if they desire
- laws, policies, programs, services, and structures must take into account the ways that different kinds of barriers and discrimination intersect
- persons with disabilities must be involved in the development and design of laws, policies, programs, services, and structures, and
- accessibility standards and regulations must be made with the goal of achieving the highest level of accessibility
The Act applies to organizations under federal responsibility, including:
- the Government of Canada, its departments, agencies and Crown corporations
- parts of the private sector regulated by the Government of Canada such as:
- federal transportation network such as airlines, rail, road and marine transportation providers that cross provincial or international borders
- broadcasting and telecommunications sectors
- the Canadian Forces and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
The act has already come to force on July 11, 2019 and requires every organization that has been mentioned to:
- Prepare and publish accessibility plans
- Set up a feedback process
- Prepare and publish progress reports

The 2 lessons learned from 2020
Lesson 1: Let's be virtual.
Future is unpredictable. Let's be ready to work from anywhere without compromising our privacy.
For Canadians who were lucky to continue working in 2020, the majority favor flexible working, a mix between office life and telecommuting.
According to a study by Maru / Blue, nearly 25% of Canadians surveyed prefer office work, the other 25% work from home and the remaining half prefer a mix of 2. We notice that the biggest challenge of working from home is that of communication tools which must adapt to mobility needs. The telephone, the computer, the desk and chair and the virtual meetings.
Phew! Finally 2020 ends. We hope you are well.
