4PSA VoipNow Provides Integration with Parallels Plesk Control Panel and Delivers Hosted PBX Services to Business and Residential Users
20 May 2008 – Rack-Soft announced on Monday, during the Parallels Summit 2008 held in Washington DC, that it signed an agreement with Parallels for the distribution of its flagship product, 4PSA VoipNow. Parallels is a worldwide leader in virtualization and automation software for hosting service providers.
4PSA VoipNow, the popular PBX software for service providers and enterprises, has been integrated with Parallels Plesk Control Panel and delivers communication services for end users via the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. The announcement was followed by a product presentation held by Mr. Bogdan Carstoiu, Rack-Soft’s General Manager.
This integration allows Parallels customers to provide cost effective PBX services for corporate and residential users. The hosted PBX model offers the advantages of a PBX system, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars to deploy and maintain, for a low monthly fee. A hosted PBX enables a company to easily connect its offices around the world and to implement advanced voice and video communication integrated with current software business tools. Annual worldwide PBX revenue reached $8.9 Billion in 2006 and is expected to reach almost $12 Billion by 2010.
Support for VoipNow is included with Parallels Plesk Control Panel 8.4. The VoipNow Plesk Module integrates the two products into a single management interface. By combining the hosting industry’s leading control panel with the hosted VoIP PBX software, hosting providers can offer more diversified services to their customers. The VoipNow Plesk Module also automates user management and dramatically simplifies the provisioning and delivery of voice and video services.
“Partnering with Rack-Soft to bring its PBX software solution to Parallels Plesk Control Panel users is an excellent example of how innovative technologies can be delivered via SaaS to help end users control costs and improve efficiency”, said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Parallels. “With competitive pricing and leasing options, Parallels makes it cost effective and flexible for service providers to integrate key SaaS applications, such as VoipNow, into their portfolios.”
“We are excited to work with Parallels to offer VoipNow through its service provider channel” said Bogdan Carstoiu, Rack-Soft’s General Manager. “Now, with the integration into the Parallels Plesk Control Panel, customers can manage hosting and VoIP services from the same web-based interface.”
The Parallels Plesk/Rack-Soft VoipNow bundle is scheduled to be available in June 2008 from Parallels and its worldwide partners. For more information and pricing, please visit www.parallels.com/products/plesk.
