Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) June 23, 2012
AstraQom Incorporated, an SMB IP communications and technologies enabler, announces plans for a weekly business networking breakfast in the Ottawa Ward area of Beacon Hill / Cyrville after meeting with Councillor Tim Tierney on Tuesday, May 29, 2012. The action item is one of AstraQom's many with an objective to encourage entrepreneurial leadership and business retention in the Ward, as well as in Ottawa, Ontario and Canada.
Jonathan Sowah, CEO of AstraQom, states, "It was an honor to listen to Councillor Tim Tierney share the successes and the goals of the Ottawa Ward area of Beacon Hill / Cyrville. Our company has a strong presence in the global telecommunications industry because of our intense leadership in media partnerships with conferences such as 4G Latin America and 4G World. Some of our objectives include more involvement in our headquarters' local areas. We flew in our colleagues from abroad, to bring as many of our team face to face with each other and local government, business and nonprofit leaders. We discovered in our conversations with these important people that we do have much to offer ... technically and professionally. Specifics for the weekly business networking meet-ups will be announced via local radio stations, newspapers, and of course, online tools such as Twitter, Linkedin and our corporate blog."
Though 80 % of Ontario-based startups succeed through their first year, the province's firms are no more likely than other provinces to survive their fifth year, according to Statistics Canada Catalogue no. 61-526-XIE. Knowing about and taking advantage of empowering new technologies can make the difference in business continuity. AstraQom Incorporated makes available customizable organizational and business solutions for nonprofit, medical, industrial, consultant, and other types of groups, that center on unified communications and increased productivity as the focal point. Virtual office and phone numbers, audio and video surveillance and streaming, business phone systems that include BYOD (smart phones) leverage for flexible mobility, and integration of CRM and other business needs are a few of the most popular features. Such technology helps set new firms apart from their competition even outside Ottawa.
Suzanne Bowen, VP of marketing at AstraQom adds, "This was my second visit to Beacon Hill / Cyrville area and the rest of Ottawa as well as Gatineau since joining AstraQom Incorporated in 2011. The quality of business leaders and expert consultants we met with in the past few days have increased my confidence in the potential of regional growth, how we can work together, and in the fact that we made the right choice to headquarter here. We made the best use of every waking second to meet with entrepreneurs and other business owners, beginning with our first venue of the 5K and ending with the half marathon during the Ottawa Marathon weekend. Over a dozen of our team participated where even the trading of business cards was surprisingly apropos."
AstraQom is able to effectively assist small and medium sized businesses and organizations who are starting up, who are close to the end or at the end of non-customized, expensive, traditional telecommunications contracts, or who are in the process of streamlining human resources and company expenses. For example, audio and video streaming feature can be used for telethons, surveillance, radio broadcasting over the Internet to a private, public, local and/or global audience with access to security management.
A business can enable its team via AstraQom services to use their smart phones and cell phones to access the business phone system to make outgoing calls. In turn, AstraQom's service stores a highly detailed call log and the ability to call record. Message or music on hold feature can include a rotation of audio advertisements for SMBs' incoming calls to enjoy. Virtual assistant, colocation, and hosted server space are more of the many revenue-generation, customer-retention, productivity-increasing and cost-saving features and solutions available. The weekly business networking meet-ups will enable AstraQom and businesses in the Beacon Hill / Cyrville area to learn about each other’s services, develop partnerships, and gain referrals.
