Unified Communications Software Vendor establishes another foreign Branch Office as ESTOS Benelux BV
ESTOS is strengthening their Presence on the European Market with their newest Subsidiary in the Netherlands
For the last ten years, the Dutch version of the ProCall Enterprise Unified Communications and computer telephony integration (CTI) solution from ESTOS has been marketed through a network of partnerships. To accommodate increasing market demand, the software vendor has recently decided to establish this new branch office in the area. With ProCall Enterprise, ESTOS addresses the small- and medium-sized business segment. This Unified Communications solution includes all of the classic CTI features as well as modern performance features like Presence Management, instant messaging and Federation for the improvement of collaboration even across existing corporate boundaries based on SIP / SIMPLE as well as XMPP standards - the new international versions of ProCall Enterprise with XMPP support will be available within the next weeks. Federation enables secure interconnection of ProCall with platforms from other publishers, like Microsoft Lync, Cisco Jabber and Google Talk. ESTOS will provide their entire portfolio of solutions, as well as the ECSTA (CSTA/TAPI) middleware series for the combination of the ProCall Enterprise Unified Communications solution with all popular telecommunications system (on premise or cloud) and the MetaDirectory for corporate-wide consolidation of contact information, in the market region.
As in all other areas, the ESTOS products will be marketed in Benelux through an indirect network of partners. Dutch resellers can order these products now from the SDC Group and Televersal distribution partners. Floyd Bloemberg is the new Sales Director for ESTOS Benelux BV. He will be responsible for the ESTOS group’s marketing activities in Benelux. Mr. Bloemberg possesses many years of professional experience in the ICT sector, in particular in the area of channel management and therefore brings pertinent industry knowledge with him to the job. He says: “I have been working intensively with the ESTOS components over the last twelve months in particular and am very happy to be able to advise my resellers and business partners about Unified Communications and CTI solutions. In this context, our customers have always considered business process integration to be an important issue. In my opinion, every company should now be looking closely at Unified Communications solutions, since the ability for integrating the ESTOS solutions in particular into existing IT infrastructure systems, such as CRM, ERP and industry-specific applications, will create real competitive advantages!”
Similarly, Florian Bock, Managing Director of ESTOS Benelux BV, as well as of the German parent company, ESTOS GmbH, has emphasized the importance of this new office in Doetinchem: “ESTOS has successfully marketed their components for a good ten years in the Netherlands. The market demand has once more increased significantly over the last two years. The establishment of a foreign subsidiary thus became a logical step. In Mr. Bloemberg, we have added an experienced professional to our team, who will help support our customers, strengthen the existing network and, of course, develop new partners. With him, we will achieve the expected growth in the area quickly.”
Since 1997, ESTOS GmbH has been developing innovative standard software and today is a leading supplier of Unified Communications products with more than one million licenses sold. CTI and SIP-based solutions are used for the optimization of the workflow in communication-intensive departments for small and medium-sized companies. Today numerous strategic technology partners and resellers in Europe, benefit from ESTOS’ know-how. The independent software vendor is based in Starnberg, Germany, near Munich and has a branch office in Udine, Italy as well as in Doetinchem near Arnhem, Netherlands.
