INVOIP Deploys BroadCloud to Introduce Feature-Rich, Affordable Hosted Unified Communications Services
GAITHERSBURG, MD–(Marketwired – Jan 8, 2015) – BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ:BSFT, news, filings) today announced that INVOIP, a leading nationwide hosted unified communications service provider based in Troy, Michigan, has selected BroadCloud®managed services to power INVOIP Connect, a service that extends beyond standard hosted PBX capabilities to include a range of hosted Unified Communications (UC) services such as video calling and conferencing, mobility, and unified messaging.
According to an August 2014 Infonetics report, the global hosted PBX and UC services market is expected to grow from $8.5B in 2014 to $12.3B by 2018.

As a fully-managed hosted service, BroadCloud delivers comprehensive Unified Communications and PBX services from BroadSoft’s cloud infrastructure — while covering the full business customer lifecycle, from initial quote to service activation to support.
