Imago Group adopts cloud based video conferencing managed services through partnership with UCi2i
London (PRWEB UK) 4 December 2012
This strategic partnership gives Imago’s resellers the means to sell video managed services regardless of device, network or location. UCi2i services are helping to drive video conferencing adoption worldwide because they handle the management, infrastructure and support it takes to make video work, with easy to use, simple to buy, fixed priced monthly subscription plans – making it as simple as fixed mobile phone tariffs.
Users can enjoy reliable, secure, risk-free and high definition video communications by outsourcing the management of their video with around the clock, global support and value added features, including Virtual Meeting Rooms, Real-time Activity Reporting, call recording, content sharing and concierge services.
UCi2i selected Imago in order to capitalise on the company’s expertise and growing dominance of the cloud video conferencing market. UCi2i’s services both complement and support Imago’s portfolio, delivering a range of services that are ideally suited to customers who have both invested in video, as well as those adopting video services for the first time.
UCi2i offers both off the shelf and bespoke service plans that do not require any investment in new infrastructure for the customer. Both these plans provide the support, management and technical expertise required to make video a dependable and everyday communications tool.
UCi2i has invested globally in a carrier-grade infrastructure which is delivered exclusively through channel partners. As a vendor agnostic managed services provider, UCi2i can connect any standards-based video endpoint, regardless of device, network or location, whether it be a laptop, desktop, meeting room system or telepresence system.
“Cloud VC represents the biggest growth area in our industry and UCi2i is positioned to dominate the managed services element of cloud VC with its range of services,” said Ian Vickerage, Managing Director, Imago Group plc. “For customers who want the reassurance of a traditional video conferencing platform, but don’t want the costs of infrastructure or hardware maintenance, UCi2i offers both bespoke and packaged solutions. This company enhances our existing Cloud VC offer and provides a valuable new weapon in our reseller partners’ armoury.”
“Our partnership with Imago is recognition of their commitment to customer value through indirect channels. Together our goal is to maximise the value customers derive from their existing investments in video conferencing as well as giving them the platform to mass deploy video; simply and cost effectively," said Michael Grant, Founder and Group Operations Director, UCi2i.
UCi2i’s solutions will be available through Imago Group’s network of authorised resellers.
