Founded in 1995, Intermedia (News - Alert) – a premier provider of business communications services -- has evolved to become the de facto cloud solution for all SMBs with its Office in the Cloud suite of services. It has further cemented its leadership position by acquiring AccessLine -- a fast growing and profitable cloud voice services provider with $38 million in revenue.
Doug Johnson (News - Alert), former CEO of AccessLine, currently Intermedia's senior vice president of voice services, will be leading Intermedia's expanded efforts to deliver many more Fortune 50 level voice communications capabilities to its SMB customers.
Intermedia delivers cloud e-mail, cloud voice and a variety of critical IT services to SMBs. The AccessLine technology platform is expected to complement Intermedia's offerings and enhance its core competencies with a feature set and service capability that SMBs demand.
"We continue to execute on our Office in the Cloud vision while increasing our leadership across multiple categories," said Phil Koen, CEO of Intermedia.
All Intermedia services are delivered from the same cloud, tightly integrated and managed using the HostPilot online control panel, and provided with just one bill, one login and one source of support. Moreover, resellers and partners can use the console to design and deploy their own private-labeled cloud offerings. It also integrates securely with customers' on-premises networks and management tools.
AccessLine's services are designed for large scale subscriber growth. The company’s considerable experience running a large and scalable hosted PBX (News - Alert), SIP trunking and amazing voice technology, will only serve to propel Intermedia forward.
Also, with the addition of AccessLine, Intermedia is expected to have more than $140 million in revenue, more than 700,000 users and 90,000 businesses, 25 cloud business applications delivered from 10 data centers globally and 600 employees globally. On all counts then, SMBs stand to gain.
By meeting SMBs' current and future cloud, voice and IT needs, and providing all services under a single roof, Intermedia will be further cementing its position as the world's largest one-stop shop for cloud IT services and business applications.
