ADVODA Communications Forges New Alliance with Corporate Technologies Group

Greenwood Village, CO (January 18, 2011) – ADVODA Communications, a master agent headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colorado announced today the completion of a strategic business alliance with Corporate Technologies Group Inc. (CTG) of Hudson, Ohio.  The alliance between the two companies marks a new wave of optimizing Hosted VOIP and SIP trunk opportunities in the business enterprise.

CTG is a progressive technical master agent in the Midwest who is now positioned to actively market IP based services beyond the basic circuit delivery model.  They plan to take IP-based Voice services to market with a solid foundation of support.  “Pre-sale and post-sale support for IP based voice products like hosted VOIP and SIP trunking are critical to ensure customer satisfaction and market growth. ADVODA has invested heavily in developing back office solutions that start before the circuit install and continue after the circuit install.  This type of high-touch management will determine the success of a project for our client. Add to that a commission level greater than the majority of our traditional direct agreements and it becomes a simple decision on our part,” said Brett Harney, CTG Principal and Co-founder. “It’s the first time we have seen the model in the agent community and I cannot see an agent being successful in the IP space without it.”

ADVODA has an agreement with SimpleSignal of Dana Point, California, to act as a national master agent for their IP product suite.  “We were able to craft an arrangement with SimpleSignal by making significant commitments to sales volume and internal resource development.  This unique agreement allows us to pursue an alliance strategy with other master agents,” said Ron Dunworth, President and CEO of ADVODA.  “We saw SimpleSignal as an ideal partner for this model.  Their management team truly understands the industry, their services are based on industry leading infrastructure and they have developed product and pricing solutions that have allowed us to set ourselves apart in the market for end customers.”

ADVODA does not have plans to compete with the giant master agents in the industry but rather to partner with them and their sub agents as IP telephony replaces traditional dial tone across the country.  ADVODA ensures commission levels commensurate with a partner’s size.  Most importantly, the combination of great services layered with great processes provides a win-win for end customers.
