UpCurve Cloud (UCC), a Google Cloud Premier provider for business services today, announced its new partnership with AVANT, a platform for IT decision-making and a premier distributor of next-generation IT solutions. The new relationship will give AVANT’s network of Trusted Advisors the ability to bundle unified communications with email collaboration tools such as G Suite, CRM, and data analytics (Prodoscore). Bundling allows for an increase in the average revenue per user (ARPU), without having to add additional service and support costs for the agent.
UCC has supported over 10,000 customers since its inception in 2005. As one of the very first and premier Google partners in North America, their key focus has been on helping businesses improve their ROI; enable their workforce technology, and invest in the Google ecosystem. UCC provides a range of services including migration, implementation, change management, integration of business-critical applications, training, support, and sales assessments.
"I don't want to learn how to service and support email, CRM, and data analytics. I want to focus on what I am good at, but I want my customers to have the best possible experience from all different angles of their business"

Most agents are very familiar with how to sell, manage, and support their business customers using unified communications. More and more, customers are demanding to have their business workflow tools and systems, including email, CRM, and data analytics bundled with their unified communications system.
"I don't want to learn how to service and support email, CRM, and data analytics. I want to focus on what I am good at, but I want my customers to have the best possible experience from all different angles of their business," said Michael Bremmer of Telecomquotes.com, a Trusted Advisor powered by AVANT
Michael Bremmer was one of the first Trusted Advisors to work with UpCurve Cloud and bundle additional value around his preferred unified communication offering for customers, Vonage Business Cloud.
"I love having UCC as a partner to help me bundle a real service offering around Vonage Business Cloud. This new partnership between UCC and AVANT helps me grow my business exponentially and increase our value for our customers, without the additional cost," said Bremmer.
"We are so excited about the partnership with AVANT and working with more partners like Micheal Bremmer. It's a win-win relationship. They focus on what they are good at, and we focus on what we are good at -- which is Email, CRM, data analytics and bringing them all together. The customer could not be happier," said Joey Maller, VP of Sales and Alliances for UCC.
