Northern Virginia-based iCore Networks has opened a new Philadelphia office at the Centre Square Building at 1500 Market Street. iCore provides cloud-based unified communications (UC) solutions, which replace on-premise equipment, to businesses. The office already has some employees on board, and the company expects it to eventually house 25 people, mostly in sales and customer support. In a statement, iCore said its "decision to build a presence in Philadelphia is largely driven by the area’s burgeoning business climate and wealth of opportunities."
iCore, founded in 2001 with about 160 employees in total at present, bundles "best of breed" technologies into what it calls its unique "CloudFUZN" solution. The latest expansion follows recent facility openings in other major national markets, including Atlanta and San Francisco. This year, iCore also plans to expand its presence into Boston and New York.
iCore would appear to be competitive with companies such as Philly-based Evolve IP, Alteva, and to some extent, Comcast Business. This regional expansion is being headed by iCore’s Senior Vice President of Sales, Michael Bertamini.
