FREE WEBINAR: Non-Traditional Communications Service Distribution Models Proliferate- Are they Risk Free?


This Wednesday at 1pm edt (Mar 21), Marashlian & Donahue, PLLC‘s Managing Partner, Jonathan Marashlian, will be hosting a webinar that addresses private labeling, white labeling, “powered by,” and various other distribution models in the marketplace that seek to achieve the same goal —

“How do communications service providers grow sales without the pains of regulatory and tax compliance?”

Jonathan plans to review a variety of novel service distribution models, discussing the issues and risks associated with these non-traditional methods, and will also highlight the long-sought after “Holy Grail” model and many of the operational and legal intricacies businesses must address to minimize risk exposure.

Joining the event to discuss the many ways its robust tax calculation software engine can help resolve many of the operational challenges associated with non-traditional distribution arrangements will be Ben Isbell of Wolters Kluwar.

Non-Traditional VoIP, UCaaS & Wireless Service Distribution Models Proliferate in the Marketplace, but are they Risk Free?
Learn the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly when it comes to any Communications Service distribution model that falls outside the established regulated “Carrier” vs. unregulated “Sales Agent” dichotomy 

Private Label, White Label, “Powered By,” Doing Business As, Trade Names, Rebilling, Systems Integration, Reseller and More!

As VoIP, UCaaS and Wireless service providers seek to expand their market reach through a variety of sales partner channels (such as VARs, Systems Integrators, existing and new channel partners, IT management firms, resellers and more), the variety of service distribution models in the marketplace has mushroomed in recent times.  But are these “non-traditional” service distribution models all created equal?  Do they all carry more or less the same degree of risk?  Are they all operationally equivalent?

This in-depth webinar will allow the audience to see firsthand the variety of ways service providers in the VoIP, UCaaS and Wireless spaces are partnering with other businesses to market, sell and deliver services, and will explain the legal risks associated with each distinct model.  The webinar will also provide information about the proverbial “Holy Grail” of service distribution models, including the nuanced contractual and operational elements needed to mitigate risks while maximizing defensibility in light of the U.S.’s century’s old regulatory and tax scheme, which continues to recognize only two types of companies – the regulated/taxed “Carrier” and the unregulated/not taxed “Sales Agent.”
