SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Teltronics, Inc. , a world class manufacturer of high quality, dependable communications products and services, announced a newly formed partnership with the team members of Access and Collier Business Systems, Florida's Gulfcoast premier communications provider. The transaction is effective as of January, 18, 2008. The new relationship provides Teltronics the chance to build a strong, direct sales presence both local & domestically to promote the Cerato SE, Cerato IP, Cerato ME/LE (digital & VoIP switching systems), OMNIWorks (customer contact management system) and the voice, data and network monitoring solutions.

"We're pleased with the acquisition of Access Communications and Collier Business Systems. Teltronics has called Florida home for 39 years selling through distributors worldwide but has never had the opportunity to sell direct to the consumer in the local area," said Ewen Cameron, President and Chief Executive Officer of Teltronics. "This teaming gives Teltronics an additional install base of over 3,500 satisfied customers who are now backed directly by the manufacturer."

Per Chris Fickey and John Mitchell, Managing Partners for Access and Collier Business Systems, "The acquisition gives us a comprehensive, new product offering, more resources, improved support and an added level of experience while continuing to support any legacy communications system that our customers currently own."

Access Communications and Collier Business Systems, serving Southwest Florida for over 20 years, has provided a diverse communications platform offering: telephone systems sales and service, VoIP technology, Voice and Data Cabling, Communications Consulting, and Voice Mail/Auto Attendant Systems.
