KIRKLAND, Wash. (September 4, 2018) Audian, a Unified Communications solutions provider, announces the addition of Bill Janes as National Channel Director. Beginning his career as an IT engineer, Janes then moved into the telecom industry at a time of immense change and growth, providing him with a long-term view of the benefits of new technologies. Janes will lead Audian’s ongoing channel growth, connecting companies and organizations of all size and scope with modern hosted voice technologies to help simplify the complexities once associated with telecommunications.


“With deep technical expertise from his years as an engineer, Bill brings a unique ability to communicate the technical and operational benefits of our hosted solutions to business owners of all levels and needs,” said Brandon Bazemore, CEO of Audian. “Having seen telecom change dramatically over the last decade, Bill’s experience and vision is a valuable resource for connecting with our customers, but also will assist in the ongoing evolution of our voice and data systems.


As a software company redefining the telecom industry, Audian combines roles of both a telecom service provider role with the needed IT infrastructure, all accessed easily anywhere in the world through a customer’s secure, private login. The Audian Customer Portal’s drag and drop features gives customers an easy to use, visual representation of their custom phone system, allowing for easy configuration and updates. Audian's technology platform is backed by unmatched customer satisfaction, a unicorn in a telecom industry known for customer frustration, long wait times and impersonal service.


Prior to joining Audian, Janes held leadership roles in business development and enterprise sales for Mediarails, Wave Broadband, and Streambox. He broke into a rapidly changing telecom industry in the early 2000’s with early pioneers including Speakeasy and Earthlink Internet, growing direct and channel revenue streams, while uncovering new reseller and wholesale business opportunities.


Having seen the telecom industry from all angles, I recognized Audian’s unique ability to scale rapidly as business owners need it. Big players in the industry have a hard time being nimble and dynamic enough for the majority of businesses in our economy who need voice solutions that are user-friendly to set up and manage, but can also cost-effectively scale as their business grows,” said Janes. “I welcomed the opportunity to put my background to work for Audian to improve our customers’ Telecompetence – so they spend less time on their phone solutions and more time on building their business.”
