OCTIVOX SIGNS GBH COMMUNICATIONS TO
CLEAR CALL RESELLERS NETWORK
GBH Communications — Leading Communications Solutions Provider for U.S. Fortune 500 Companies & Certified Gold Reseller for Polycom — to Resell Octivox Audio Enhancement Phone Accessory
March 17, 2004, Berkeley, CA — OctiVox, a division of Octiv — the volume matching and intelligibility experts, announced today that it has signed GBH Communications to its growing network of Clear Call resellers, which include Video Guidance and Hello Direct, among others. GBH Communications is the leading communications solutions provider for U.S. Fortune 500 companies and is a certified gold reseller for Polycom, the leading conference call phone provider. OctiVox Clear Call is a powerful addition to the GBH product line-up and offers a functional feature-set that is both not available and non-competitive to all of the GBH conferencing products now being sold.
Clear Call is an audio enhancement phone accessory that makes conference calls more intelligible for the user by fixing volume variations and audio clarity on incoming calls. Clear Call plugs directly into any analog conference phone to provide automatic volume matching for all incoming callers — no matter how many people are on the call. Productivity levels increase as users will no longer miss important business details said during conference calls or have to constantly adjust the volume control.
“The Octivox Clear Call solution enhances and compliments GBH’s already robust audio communications product line. For less than $200, this easy to install device solves the most common audio conferencing problem today,” said Larry Karagheusian, Executive VP Sales, GBH Communications.
In choosing to work with GBH, Jack Peterson, VP Sales, OctiVox, added, “When OctiVox was trying to reach out to companies like Intel, The GAP and Bank of America, we were told to have our product represented by GBH Communications. They are a great addition to our growing channel team.”
