Professional Teledata and eOn Communications Corporation announced entering into an agreement whereby Professional Teledata will acquire eOn’s Millennium and eQueue product lines, as well as development rights for the eConn IP PBX. Professional Teledata will also be designated as the exclusive eOn authorized provider of sales and service for the same products.
The deal is consistent with eOn’s move away from PBX and call center markets and into IP voice and security endpoints through its Cortelco business unit. Likewise, Professional Teledata, a long time eOn business partner and reseller, is ideally positioned to both perform on, and benefit from, the deal.
Stephen Swartz, eOn’s principal executive officer, stated, “Professional Teledata is the perfect choice to support eOn’s installed base, and we’ve allowed for an ample transition period, during which eOn personnel will continue to work closely with Professional Teledata.”
Alan Hartmann, Professional Teledata vice president, said, “We see this agreement as a natural progression of our business model, while at the same time significantly increasing our customer base.” Hartmann added, “Access to the eConn technology also enables us to offer a long term solution to both current and future customers.”
