VoIP Supply - the Right Way to Market IP Telephony

I'm not a user of Open Source telephony, but I don't have to be to know a good thing when I see it. I've long been a fan of fellow blogger Garrett Smith, and VoIP Supply, who continue to set the bar high in bringing VoIP to the business market. And it doesn't hurt to be based in Buffalo, the closest American city to Toronto. As we speak, the Sabres just beat Ottawa, so the sun is still shining on Buffalo's hockey season. I digress.

Garrett just gave me a heads up on this tonight, and the press release will be out tomorrow. The basic idea is pretty simple, but I think it's just what the market needs. Basically, VoIP Supply will conduct a network assessment for VoIP readiness for those who can't do it themselves. Their price points are very attractive, with tiered pricing depending on how many lines.

I'm not going to give away the details now, but I think it's a very friendly way for companies to engage the expertise of VoIP Supply, and make their path to IP that much easier. Nothing revolutionary here - lots of people do VoIP network assessments, but not many have the breadth of expertise that VoIP Supply has, especially for Open Source solutions. Of course they provide the full gamut of IP telephony solutions/systems, so they're a pretty good one stop shop for all flavors of VoIP - and for me, that's all the more reason to use them. I'm sure their offering will be well received. I know if I was in the market for this, I'd find this a pretty useful service.
