Esnatech, a leader in unified communications and expert on deploying Google Apps to drive business efficiency, has signed a partnership with FVC, a major value added distributor (VAD). The two will work together to deliver unified communications to enterprises throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa.
To assist enterprises looking to deploy communications capabilities to help boost worker productivity, these companies will provide cloud strategies in both public and private environments. Using unified communications, companies can have a single inbox to access all messages and advance their fixed-to-mobile convergence.
“As more companies move critical productivity applications to the cloud, it essential that they be able to improve communication and collaboration within their organization,” said Nick St. John, managing director of EMEA for Esnatech, in a statement. “Office-LinX makes it possible to connect any voice and PBX (News - Alert) 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.”
FVC and Esnatech will provide new technology to enterprises throughout the region, as well as offering training and support for companies in North Africa and the Middle East.
“This agreement with Esnatech is an exciting new addition to our portfolio and fits in with our commitment to bring emerging technologies to the region,” said K. S. Parag, Managing Director at FVC. “For a region as diverse as this is, cloud-based unified communications makes good business sense for a fragmented and mobile workforce, ensuring effective and productive communications.”
In other recent company news, Esnatech signed an agreement with Onix to bring cloud-enabled unified communications to North America. The companies will support North American enterprises in the integration of UC technology in much the same way that Esnatech with work with FVC in the MENA region.
