WorkSpace Communications™ signs agreement with Intel® to provide its communications and collaboration offering as part of the Intel® AppUp for Small Business Service
Overland Park, Kan. (PRWEB) May 25, 2011
WorkSpace Communications™, a leading cloud provider of Unified Communications solutions, today announced an agreement with Intel® to provide its complete suite of unified communications and collaboration tools as part of the standard Intel Hybrid Cloud solution offering.
Intel® AppUp for Small Business Service offers small businesses the combination of a locally-hosted, or premise-based server interoperating with “cloud”-based software and services, all available on a subscription-based or pay-per-user basis. Businesses gain the benefits of scale, cost savings, reliability and others from the wide range of services available in the “cloud,” along with the responsiveness and consistency of local applications, and the security of having their data on-site.
The WorkSpace Communications unified communications solution provides the ideal complement to Intel’s hybrid offering, delivering a suite of communication and collaboration tools right to the desktop. Among the tools are voice services, audio, video and web conferencing services, as well as instant messaging, real-time desk sharing and the unique unified communications “presence” tool. Presence enables employees to assess availability of co-workers and communicate with each other throughout the day, regardless of location.
The WorkSpace unified communications solution enhances a business’s ability to communicate and collaborate within remote office and mobile environments by seamlessly linking the communication and collaboration applications together through the Internet. In essence, by combining all of the disparate voice, video, messaging and collaboration mediums into a single, integrated cloud-based service offering, WorkSpace Communications transforms the way businesses communicate into a competitive advantage.
An additional component of the WorkSpace Communications agreement with Intel designates the company as one of Intel’s selected managed services provider (MSP) partners. As a result, the components of the hybrid cloud solution will be included in the portfolio marketed to customers by WorkSpace Communications through its growing distribution network of resellers.
“The agreement we have reached with Intel offers businesses tremendous cost and performance advantages,” says Bryan DiGiorgio, CEO of WorkSpace Communications. “Customers get the reliability, security and productivity gains of the Intel and WorkSpace Communications solutions at an affordable price and without a capital investment. They can scale up or down according to their needs. This type of flexibility is a significant benefit in any business environment.”
“The WorkSpace Communications unified communications offering is an important component of our AppUp for Small Business Service,” says Bridget Karlin, General Manager, Intel Hybrid Cloud. “When you combine its communication and collaboration capabilities with the wide range of other services available on a subscription basis, small businesses gain a powerful cost and productivity advantage.”
