CounterPath Announces ITSP Partner Program for Mobile Softphones
Internet Telephony Service Providers Can Now Certify Their Service with CounterPath’s Bria iPhone Edition Softphone and Simplify Provisioning for Customers
Vancouver, BC, Canada — May 24, 2011 —
(TSX-V: CCV) (OTCBB: CPAH) an award-winning
provider of desktop and mobile Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) software solutions, today announced that it has launched an online certification program for Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs). The CounterPath ITSP Partner Program enables ITSPs to certify their service with CounterPath’s mobile softphone, Bria iPhone Edition, and provide a pre-provisioned service option within the softphone client.
By participating in the ITSP Partner Program, ITSPs can provide their customers with a premier softphone option that is easy to activate and use. The program also helps ITSPs expand their market reach by leveraging the CounterPath softphone user base.
“Joining CounterPath's ITSP Partner Program and certifying our OnSIP Hosted PBX service with Bria iPhone Edition was an obvious choice for us," said Robert Wolpov, President and Founder of Junction Networks. "OnSIP was specifically designed to provide small and medium-size businesses with access to enterprise-grade PBX systems. Partnering with CounterPath has now given us the ability to offer these services within a first-class, enterprise-grade mobile softphone."
Registration for the CounterPath ITSP program is free via the CounterPath website. ITSPs receive an Acceptance Test Procedure (ATP) to complete and, once approved, the ITSP Partner will appear in a list of pre-provisioned VoIP providers within the mobile softphone application. CounterPath Certified ITSP Partners also gain exposure on CounterPath’s website and receive a CounterPath Certified logo for use in their customer collateral.
“The launch of the CounterPath ITSP program is exciting for us, the ITSP community and their customers,” said Todd Carothers, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Products, CounterPath Corporation. “CounterPath Certified ITSPs will benefit from the opportunity to offer their existing customers an unsurpassed mobile softphone experience while enjoying exposure to potential new customers. For end users, having a wide array of certified VoIP services available for easy activation or subscription through CounterPath’s Bria iPhone Edition makes setting up mobile VoIP quick and painless. At CounterPath, we have always been dedicated to simplifying the softphone experience, and our ITSP Program is an important step in this direction.”
The CounterPath ITSP program is available immediately for certification with CounterPath’s Bria iPhone Edition softphone. Certification with the company’s Bria Android Edition softphone will be available soon, with the award-winning Bria desktop softphone to follow.
