Recognizing and Addressing Service Provider Pain Points

With an estimated 400M+ aging, inflexible, and costly legacy business phone system seats that have yet to migrate to a more mobile, secure, and reliable cloud-based way to work, the opportunity for SPs is significant. However, there are a number of current and future obstacles that SPs, in particular, must address in order to cost-effectively deliver and support modern unified communications solutions:

  • Decline of the Softswitch Era: Traditional central office softswitch platforms face deprecation, pushing SPs to seek modern solutions.
  • Inefficient Investments: Investments in voice infrastructure and supporting processes lack alignment with profitable growth.
  • Challenges to Building Proprietary Solutions: Building their own solution is impractical, taking too long and costing too much.
  • Brand Marginalization: SPs prefer to leverage their own brand, rather than simply reselling another vendor’s brand and diluting the SP’s brand equity.
  • Customer Disintermediation: SPs are losing customers to over-the-top UCaaS providers due to limitations in the SPs’ current platforms.
  • Critical Customer Ownership: Retaining customer ownership while maintaining brand is crucial for SPs.

“Amid the challenges in the Unified Communications space, Service Providers require strategic solutions to bring to their business customers,” said Rob Arnold, Principal Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “It’s critical for Service Providers to find more than just a solution, they need a partner invested in their success and able to support them though the entire customer lifecycle.”
