Avaya taps SMEs with new video collaboration solution with BYOD

Tapping the SMEs, Avaya today announced the Avaya Video Collaboration Solution for IP Office. It features BYOD capabilities.

Avaya IP Office is the company’s flagship unified communications solution for small and midsize enterprises.

The enterprise communications company is seeking to strengthen its SME presence as the number of SMEs using video collaboration could potentially double in the next 12 months.

“By adding high-quality video collaboration capabilities to IP Office, we are raising the bar in terms of what customers should expect from their vendors. No one in the market offers a more comprehensive UC solution specifically designed for SMEs in the areas of features, simplicity, and affordability,” said Mark Monday, vice president, Product Management, Collaboration Platforms, Avaya.

IT market research firm IDC says 30 percent of midsized firms are currently using some videoconferencing resources beyond simple webcams.

Besides BYOD, the Avaya Video Collaboration Solution delivers HD room-system capabilities in a single solution for SMEs.

Automatic firewall traversal allows SMEs to engage with participants outside their network, enabling face-to-face meetings with customers and partners to help strengthen business relationships.

Avaya’s SME customers are growing.

“Avaya video enhances our ability to interact amongst colleagues, with musicians and with partners, and it adds a powerful new dimension to international calls. We tried other video solutions, but they just did not even compare to the high-quality and flexibility of Avaya’s technology,” said Howie Gold, CIO, The Agency Group.
