Capture New Recurring Revenue by Expanding Your Business With UCaaS
2 p.m. Eastern, Tuesday, Sept. 27

Presented by Patrick Sheehan, vice president of channel development, Intermedia

The copier/MFP dealer market continues to see a steady decline in print volumes. This has been further exacerbated by the hybrid workforce migration and supply-chain issues in the industry.

In this webinar, hear how Dave Barrows, director of sales at Gobins Inc., and Jim Kreikemeier, president of Capital Business Systems, have embraced the exploding UCaaS market by adding integrated communications to their portfolios. Barrows and Kreikemeier will share their experience in making this transition, resulting in a new, growing monthly recurring-revenue business.

Additionally, you will hear from Sheehan, vice president of channel development at Intermedia, and learn how the company's flexible and comprehensive partner program can make this transition seamless.
