The deal will give Ingram Micro resellers throughout North America, Europe and Asia gaining access to Fonality’s offerings, with the company providing service with United States and Australian phone numbers.

Utilising the company’s hybrid-hosted deployment model, customers in 97 other countries customers can use the service providign their own telephone network access.

“Ingram Micro in the United States have a significant portfolio of vendors in the cloud space, Fonality being an example of many recent additions,” Bigwood says.

“We are following a timely roadmap to bring relevant vendors to the local version of our Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, which in recent days has seen the announcement of Dropbox, with more vendors to follow,” he teases.
