FVC, Esna Technologies partner for cloud-based UC
Regional distie to deliver cloud-enabled UC solution to enterprises
FVC, a regional value added distributor in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), has signed a distribution agreement with Esna Technologies (Esnatech), a global cloud-based unified communications (UC) solutions vendor, to deliver cloud-enabled UC to enterprises across MENA.
Under the accord, FVC will offer Esnatech's Office-LinX UC software as part of its solutions portfolio to channel partners in the region.
K.S. Parag, managing director at FVC, said: "This agreement with Esnatech is an exciting new addition to our portfolio and fits in with our commitment to bring emerging technologies to the Middle East region. For a region as diverse as this is, cloud-based UC makes good business sense for a fragmented and mobile workforce, ensuring effective and productive communications."
"As more companies move critical productivity applications to the cloud, it essential that they be able to improve communication and collaboration within their organisation," said Nick St. John, managing director, EMEA for Esnatech.
"Office-LinX makes it possible to connect any voice and PBX system with cloud-based applications such as Microsoft 365, Google Apps and VMware Zimbra, resulting in quicker, easier and more cost effective communication. We are absolutely delighted to partner with Dubai- based FVC and to introduce Office-LinX to this rapidly growing region," John said.
According to Esnatech, global enterprises facing a difficult economic climate are aggressively seeking to deploy capabilities that help boost worker productivity. The vendor states that enterprises are embracing cloud strategies for efficiency and moving critical applications and functions into both public and private clouds. Unified communications including single inbox access to all messages, federated presence, and fixed-to-mobile convergence is an essential component of driving that business productivity and delivering bottom-line value to the enterprise, says Esnatech.
The company states that its Office-LinX is interoperable with any PBX system, including solutions from Avaya, Broadsoft, Cisco and others, and with all mobile operating systems, including RIM Blackberry, Android, and iPhone.
FVC will be working with Esnatech to introduce the new technology to its partners and customers across the region and will be the first point of contact for ongoing training and support in the MENA region.
