Terrapin Solutions and Blue Mountain Team with Pac-West to Launch Cloud Telephony Solution to the Hospitality Industry

San Ramon, CA, February 23, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Terrapin Solutions, a Cloud Services Master Agency, and Blue Mountain Networks, LLC, a Cloud Telephony Management Software Developer and Solutions Integrator, announced today that they will partner with Pac-West Telecomm, Inc. and leverage their Telastic solution to launch a new cloud-based Communications-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform to the hospitality market.

Blue Mountain had a vision to bring to hotels the same kind of advanced communications solutions that cloud telephony brings to businesses today, including the cost savings and reduced capital expenditures which had previously been impossible to deliver. Terrapin, which designs cloud solutions for businesses, analyzed its portfolio of best-of-breed technologies and recognized that a partnership between Blue Mountain and Telastic Networks would revolutionize the hospitality industry. "This model changes everything for telephony in the hospitality space," said Andrew Pryfogle, President and CEO of Terrapin. "Not only does it significantly drive down telephony costs for hotels, it also turns the hotel’s telephony platform back into a revenue generating machine."

Telastic includes a carrier grade switching platform with a robust feature set as well as the capacity to scale into hundreds of thousands of rooms in hotels located anywhere in the world. The real game-changer here, though, is the unprecedented ability of hotels to pay only for those rooms that are checked in on a daily basis. Combine that with on-property mobility integration, and hotels can move on from simple cost cutting to revenue creation.

With Blue Mountain Networks’ patent pending software, which manages a hotel’s communications infrastructure and services, layered over the uniquely flexible and scalable Telastic platform, hotels can now experience the benefits of shared resources and redundancy across multiple locations, the latest features made immediately available, and the ability to scale up or down based on room occupancy, all as a non-capital expenditure investment. Al Mataban, CTO of Blue Mountain Networks, said, "We expect most hotels will find that their communications costs are reduced significantly as a result of implementing this technology."

Terrapin Solutions and Blue Mountain Networks will now begin the process of introducing this ground-breaking communications solution to the hospitality vertical so that the telephony platform chosen by a hotel can become a business driver and differentiator in the industry.
