Juma Technology's subsidiary, Nectar Services Corp, an IP communications services provider, announced that its Enterprise Session Management (nectar/ESM) family of services is now recognized as compliant with key telephony solutions from Avaya, a leading global provider of business communications applications, systems and services. This certification expands the subsidiary's commitment across the Avaya platform and complements the company’s existing certifications.

“The Avaya certification establishes a new level of credibility for our solution,” commented David Giangano, President of Global Channels. “Our channel of Nectar resellers can now deliver this service into their customer base with the confidence that it has been tested and verified for compatibility with their Avaya systems.

“Nectar’s cost-cutting services provide our resellers with an offering that adds value, reduces expenses for their customers, and helps to drive new business in this tough economy,” added Giangano.

Nectar’s Enterprise Session Management (nectar/ESM) solution cuts enormous costs out of IT budgets. By utilizing the SIP-based nectar/ESM platform, businesses can drastically cut expenses by consolidating dial-tone, eliminating phone line charges and reducing toll and long-distance rates.

“Companies like Nectar are expanding the choices available to Avaya customers,” said Eric Rossman, vice president, Developer Relations and Technical Alliances, Avaya. “With a broad selection of standards-based solutions that are compliance-tested for interoperability, businesses can use communications strategically in their operations and make critical information readily available to both clients and employees.”
