With so many IP Communications leaders out there what makes AireSpring (News - Alert) stand apart? Its broad range of innovative services that are competitively priced, according to company officials.
AireSpring, a company with a mission of delivering the highest quality voice and data products for businesses at the lowest possible rates, offers business class voice, data, and integrated products, T-1, DS-3, local, long distance, SIP Trunking, and integrated voice and data products. The award-winning company is definitely making its mark in the IP Communications space, as AireSpring is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
“I think we’ve really been able to instill in our employees our vision which is that we try and do our best to take care of our customers,” Daniel Lonstein, chief operating officer and co-founder of AireSpring, told TMCnet in a recent interview. “We are certainly not perfect and, as everyone knows in the telecom world, things don’t always go the way you planned. But the difference between us and a lot of the large carriers is how do we deal with things, what care do we take and how do our people make the extra effort when things don’t go as planned.”
“We as senior management and the owners get involved every day with the customers – end users, small customers, big customers,” he added. “It’s a matter of really caring at the management level and I believe we have instilled that in our staff.”
So what are the components in the AireSpring advantage? Here are some quick highlights: a Next Generation IP Network that can handle massive capacity and demanding business solutions; a broad national footprint that covers over 95 percent of the U.S. market; an ability to process over four billion call records annually; satisfied customers since 30 to 40 percent of all new orders are add-on’s and referrals; and high volume wholesale contracts with the major Tier 1 network providers which helps AireSpring enjoy pricing leverage.
“Robust. Flexible. Affordable” is how AireSpring officials describe the company.
As AireSpring prepares to ring in a pretty big birthday, the IP Communications leader can also rest easy knowing it has a lot of good accomplishments already under its belt including the "Product of the Year," “Best Value,” “Members Choice,” and dozens of other product awards. To-date, AireSpring has set the record for more Telecom Association (News - Alert) awards than any other carrier/reseller.
Recently, AireSpring announced another industry leading new product “AirePBX,” a new fully managed cloud hosted IP PBX (News - Alert) that brings a powerful but affordable PBX solution to business customers nationwide, according to company officials. The service offers the same feature-rich functionality as AireSpring’s popular Dymanic X SMB small business products, but with no hardware to buy, install, configure, host, or maintain (customers will only need to maintain IP telephones).
