Unified Communication as a Service (UCaaS) provider, Access4, has signed a reseller agreement with NZ retail giant, PB Tech.

PB Tech will sell a pre-packaged bundled UCaaS solution that will be available off the shelf for walk-in customers, or through its eCommerce portal.

Best suited to small and medium businesses, this business phone system and UCaaS solution will enable cloud-based collaboration and cloud communications.

Access4 managing director Tim Jackson says that the PB Tech solution is perfect for small businesses ready to swap out their PBX for a simple ‘communications anywhere' solution, or for businesses that have experienced a technology failure and have an urgent need to get UC up and running in a very short timeframe.

“This product has been designed to be a straightforward, low configuration, high volume cloud PBX solution. It will give small/medium businesses a simple way to access unified communications. This reseller arrangement is an important partnership for Access4, and one that rounds out our service offering in the New Zealand market by providing an entry-level channel to market.

PB Tech commercial head Rodney Featherstone adds, “PB Tech is very proud to partner with Access4 in bringing New Zealand businesses our industry-leading hosted telephony platform. The platform we have chosen offers our customers flexibility, scalability, and features not yet seen in the hosted telephony space in New Zealand.

“Alongside our partnership with Microsoft Teams and our call centre and web experience, we have an incredibly well-rounded portfolio that caters to the needs of New Zealand businesses of all sizes.

Jackson continues, “If a small business is looking for a standard PBX replacement, this package reduces the long sales cycle usually associated with UC solutions and will deliver a feature rich outcome in hours, not months. Access4 has a proven cloud solution that is versatile enough to work at both a simple retail level through to a sophisticated and highly complex MSP level. It is scalable from one user to hundreds of users to suit a range of organisational needs.

The product is available online and will be available instore in July.
