Zacks Equity Research

Windstream Corporation (WIN), a leading provider of advance network communications, has launched IP Simple across its nationwide footprint. IP Simple is a managed unified communication solution aimed at small and medium (SMB) business segment and provides bundled Voice, Data and a business phone.       

Windstream Corp. provides this service through its subsidiary Allworx and, owns and manages the equipments on behalf of its client, thus reducing the initial capital investment. IP Simple provides multiple PBX phone system which is an internal telephone network that shares a number of outside lines to make external phone calls.

This facility helps a business to choose a PBX system according to its employee strength. Additionally, a client can also select hardware and software solutions according to its need and get numerous end of contract options including, renew the IP phone system rental solution at a negotiated rate, and options to upgrade the equipment, among others.

IP Simple Solution will aid small and medium business customers to get a bundled offering of their choice and will eliminate the need to combine services from different service providers and equipment manufacturers. We believe this nationwide launch of IP Simple solution will help Windstream to significantly improve its revenue from the data solution division by addressing the specific needs of small and medium business customers thus offsetting revenue pressure from peers like America Movil S.A. de C.V. (AMX) and MetroPCS Communication Inc. (PCS).
