Gaithersburg, MD and East Aurora, New York: Patton Electronics-the US manufacturer of SmartNode VoIP equipment-has named 888 VoIP-the industry leading VoIP hardware distributor-as "U.S. Partner of the Year" for 2013.

The successful partnership between 888VoIP and Patton began in 2008, when the two joined forces to develop Patton's VoIP Gateway business in the Unites States. At that time, Patton's SmartNode Gateway was an established market leader in Europe, but had yet to break in to the U.S. market-despite being manufactured in the United States and renowned for its quality and free customer support.

In the subsequent five years, 888VoIP has capitalized on its relationships with other best-of-breed partners and used its product and marketing expertise to increase SmartNode sales by 50% each year. Now, with several major opportunities on the horizon, this growth is expected to continue during 2014.

Much of the growth in SmartNode sales can be attributed to 888VoIP's relationships with Patton and 3CX, who's Phone System offers a software-based IP PBX for Windows. Together, these companies provide an affordable, easy-to-use, and feature-rich IP PBX solution that integrates existing phone lines and/or analog phones and fax. The solution provides 888VoIP's resellers with the ability to migrate to VoIP at their own pace.

"The relationship between Patton, 3CX, and 888VoIP has been extremely successful," says Sean Gerrity, US Sales Director at Patton. "It allows resellers to spend more time selling and less time losing deals as phone contracts and reliability concerns are no longer objections. Expertise from 888VoIP plus support from Patton and 3CX make system installation quick and easy-not to mention that 3CX Phone System comes with SmartNode gateway configs already built in."

John Molino, CEO of 888VoIP, adds, "We truly value our strategic partnership with both Patton and 3CX and are pleased to be able to offer our resellers the cutting-edge products offered by both firms. We are tremendously proud to have been named Patton's U.S. Partner of the Year for 2013, and we look forward to continuing our long and successful relationship."
