"Cloud technology has been a game changer, altering the way businesses big and small store data, provision software, and run their computer networks. Now it's changing the way companies communicate.

More and more businesses are considering cloud PBX options. Many are in search of advanced features like chat and presence - features previously available only to larger businesses. Others want to avoid a large capital outlay. The subscription-model pricing of cloud services make a more advanced phone system an affordable option for just about anyone.

That same pricing model is changing the reseller's business. As the industry shifts from traditional phone systems and toward hosted solutions, resellers will increasingly rely on recurring revenue from subscription models. The resellers that are best prepared and positioned to help customers make the shift to cloud technology have a real opportunity to transform their own businesses.

It's a different way of doing things, so in the next few pages, we are going to show you what you need to start transitioning your business model to include selling cloud solutions, and why this is such a great time to be a business phone reseller."
