It’s fall, and apple picking, cooler evenings, and changing leaves are the hallmarks of the season in many parts of the country. There's something else great about autumn; It’s the time to capture big sales as businesses retool for 2017 and gear up for the busy holiday season.
Businesses of all sizes and industries are eyeing the end of the year and wondering what they can do to close out 2016 on a high note by making investments to start 2017 right. As a channel partner, you’re probably seeing this unfold first-hand. Many Star2Star partners are seeing an increase in requests for a range of business requirements: greater cost-effectiveness, the ability to eliminate capital spending and pay only for what they use, and reduction of travel time to name a few.
Combining telephony, enterprise messaging, presence technology, video conferencing, online meeting capabilities, and much more while providing flexibility and scalability along with high availability for core business tasks, is a winning pitch for most organizations. That being said, different verticals are looking for solutions to different, specialized needs. Tailoring your approach accordingly can be the whipped cream on the pumpkin pie.
Being ready for the holiday rush means accommodating daily changes in capacity needs, on the fly, wherever they’re needed. Star2Star’s unique unified communications (UC) offering delivers offers plenty of benefits to help retail businesses be holiday-ready. Leveraging the power of the cloud, companies can scale communications capacity up and down with ease. This is accomplished with the StarBox® Voice Optimized SD-WAN, which connects over internet protocol (IP) to Star2Star’s Constellation™ network, running on a collection of call routing nodes and data centers distributed across the country.

As winter approaches so does the danger caused by weather-related outages. Businesses that are subject to compliance regulations and have mission-critical communications to protect, like hospitals, banks, and doctors’ offices, need systems that have disaster recovery and business continuity built in. The Star2Star platform has the 99.999% uptime reliability that end customers need and has maintained 100% voice uptime since 2011. Even better, we take every precaution to ensure that your calls are of the highest quality.
Star2Star’s proprietary Constellation™ Network continuously monitors Internet traffic across the United States and routes calls along the pathway that is experiencing the least latency, a process known as StarPath™. This allows the Star2Star platform to determine the best call routing to use for each call placed on every Star2Star customer system, providing crisp, clear audio on every call, with no distortion, echo or delay—a major differentiator for businesses with contact centers.
Anyone in the business of selling things knows that the end of the year is game-time. For many businesses, quarterly sales figures are one thing, but year-long totals carry the biggest impact, making Q4 a classic crunch-time period. What can organizations do to better support and free up their salespeople, so they can close more sales? Star2Star offers advanced features like video, presence, chat, and analytics that improve collaboration between employees and across departments and geographies. That way, sales organizations can be responsive and productive, and stay on top of potential opportunities in the most efficient way possible.
