Club Comms announced it has been selected for membership in the Avaya DevConnect program.

GLOUCESTERSHIRE, UK - Club Comms, an Internet telephony service provider, today announced it has been selected by Avaya Inc., a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services, for membership in the Avaya DevConnect program.


Club Comms is a developer of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) services, an application/application family that provides connectivity. As a result, companies can provide an alternative to ISDN, manage costs and increase productivity through a number of Internet Protocol (IP) telephony enhancing features that are delivered via SIP.


The Avaya DevConnect program promotes the development, compliance-testing and co-marketing of innovative third-party products that are compatible with standards-based Avaya solutions. Member organizations have expertise in a broad range of technologies – including IP telephony, contact centers and mobility applications – helping companies extend the value of multivendor networks and transform voice into an intelligent business application that delivers true value to the bottom line. 


"Having a feature-rich alternative to ISDN in the UK marketplace can offer an advantage to an Avaya Business Partner in differentiating at a customer level. Working with Avaya will enhance our offer to the UK resellers and help build our business by serving customers more efficiently and effectively," said Paul Ballinger, Business Development Manager of Club Comms. "By working with Avaya to deliver compliance-tested solutions to the market, we aim to reduce network complexity, improve security and reliability, and speed time to deployment so businesses can quickly realize a benefit to their bottom line." 


The Avaya DevConnect program currently includes thousands of software and hardware developer companies, integrators, service providers and customers. Members have created a broad array of innovative solutions tested for Avaya compliance, including natural language speech recognition applications, wireless services, specialized computer telephony integration and reporting capabilities, and applications tailored for specific vertical industries.


Through the DevConnect program, Avaya provides a number of tools and capabilities to member companies. One example is Application Enablement Services (AES) - a set of application programming interfaces, protocols and Web services that makes it easier for developers to create Avaya-compatible networks, devices and applications.


"With the involvement of companies like Club Comms, our Avaya developer community has become a catalyst for rapid innovation - creating multivendor applications that help enterprises around the world unleash powerful new possibilities for operating more efficiently and effectively," said Eric Rossman, vice president, developer relations and technical alliances, Avaya. "We help businesses embed secure, reliable Intelligent Communications into the very fabric of their organization so employees and customers have ready access to information regardless of where they are and how they prefer to communicate."
As a member of the DevConnect program, companies have access to a wide range of support from Avaya, including technical resources and training.  There are three levels of membership – Registered, Gold and Platinum – each entailing progressive levels of marketing and sales involvement. Free Registered membership is available to anyone interested in designing Avaya-compatible solutions. Gold-level members and Platinum members must meet rigorous Avaya criteria for customer satisfaction, product support, business operations, marketing and sales. Club Comms is a Gold level member of the Avaya DevConnect program.
