With a growth rate of 29% per year, the UCaaS market is booming. The benefits are clear — UCaaS platforms reduce costs, offer unlimited scalability, and provide much-needed relief from maintaining on-premise communications technology.
With the work-from-home movement in full swing, there’s no better time to offer UCaaS to your customers. All of us in the tech industry know that UCaaS has the upper hand over on-premise systems. As a UCaaS provider, it’s your job to let your customers know just how much UCaaS can save them in time and money.
Every successful UCaaS reseller understands their customer’s business, pain points, and true needs. Resellers evaluate the obstacles a business has in its way, recommending the right UCaaS solutions for the job. Luckily, we’ve done the legwork and put together a comprehensive guide that’ll help you do just that.
1. UCaaS Platforms Are Scalable With Minimal Cost or Effort
It’s not a sweeping generalization to assume that most businesses expect growth. When a business grows, so must its systems. UCaaS solutions offer the unique advantage of total scalability. Scaling up or down is a matter of adding or removing users, which can be done at a moment’s notice.
UCaaS eliminates the need to purchase new servers or compatible hardware whenever your customers expand their operations. For those of your customers that offer seasonal goods and services, UCaaS gives them the opportunity to scale downwards to save money in the offseason. Likewise, your customers can scale upwards to meet higher demand whenever necessary.
Total scalability is one of the most attractive aspects of UCaaS platforms. The ability to manage business locations worldwide and alter the number of users without investing in infrastructure is definitely worth the investment — and is a major selling point for providers.
2. Stay Competitive by Giving Customers What They Want
No matter what industry you’re in, customer experience is everything. At Acrobits, for example, we’ve built an all-in-one UCaaS platform that’s white-label-ready, taps into the richest feature set on the market, and is 100% customizable. Using our platform, UCaaS providers can build brand recognition by providing customers with an enterprise-level softphone engine that adapts to their every need.
What do your customers want — and how can UCaaS meet those needs? UCaaS platforms like Cloud Softphone are versatile, feature-rich, and flexible enough to have a wide range of applications. With UCaaS, your customers can upgrade the way they communicate, both internally and externally.
Are your customers interested in enabling a solution that’s remote work-friendly? Draw attention to how UCaaS enables seamless collaboration anytime, anywhere in the world. Features like video conferencing, file transfer, call forwarding, and others, take full advantage of cloud technology to streamline real-time communications.
3. Take Full Advantage of an Extensive Feature Set
Believe in your product. UCaaS providers need access to a feature-rich platform that works. The value of a robust real-time communications platform speaks for itself — each feature that UCaaS offers has the potential to improve customer experience or enhance productivity.
Here are a few examples of features that UCaaS providers should highlight when pitching to potential customers:
- Support for Android, iOS, macOS X, and Windows. Point out how cross-platform support provides seamless user experience and enables remote work. Emphasize the growing demand for cross-platform, multi-device accessibility.
- Push notifications. Push notifications are more than just pop-ups on your smartphone. When used strategically, they’re one of the most effective ways to boost engagement, turn inactive users into active ones, and build brand loyalty.
- Advanced encryption. Many businesses, especially those in sensitive industries like healthcare, shy away from UCaaS out of data security fears. Alleviate your customers’ compliance concerns with best in class encryption offered through Cloud Softphone.
- Call and video conferencing. Features like audio and video calls, file transfer, and instant messages enable connectivity where businesses need it most. Keep teams in sync and customers satisfied with crystal clear quality and convenience — with every collaborative function in one location—there’s never any need to juggle multiple apps.
Cloud Softphone offers a wide variety of advanced features, from online faxing to voicemail to email transcription. A UCaaS platform worth selling never stops short of providing customers with the full functionality they desire, from call management features like visual voicemail to specialized services like automated receptionists.
4. Offload Development Costs With a Proven Platform
In the digital age we find ourselves in, apps are a must-have for businesses that want to stay competitive. But building your own real-time communications platform from scratch is far from easy or cheap.
Businesses today are focused on reaping the benefits of cutting-edge technology without paying full price. That’s where UCaaS comes in. A powerful UCaaS platform lets businesses take advantage of a fully-customized mobile app without paying for:
- An in-house team of developers
- Customer-facing tech support
- Ongoing maintenance

Not only do we offer a premium feature set — we allow you to duplicate your base app to branch into new services, creating every variation you want.
