Orange Business Services
has enhanced a three-year agreement with INX Inc. (NASDAQ: INXI), a reseller of U.S.-based IP communications solutions for enterprise organizations. INX has turned to Orange to support the global Telepresence needs of its end users for field service and maintenance support, as well as equipment procurement.

INX, a certified Cisco Authorized Technology Provider in the U.S., needed a global provider who could support its customers at their diverse locations around the world. Orange Business Services has a local presence in 166 countries and territories worldwide and operates the world's largest network optimized for Telepresence, covering 42 countries in six continents. Through its partners and indirect channels arm, Orange is able to deliver the full range of its solution portfolio to a variety of end users through reseller agreements.

With a strong presence in the U.S., INX counts many oil and energy companies among its customers. Multinational companies, such as those in the oil industry, are increasingly looking at Telepresence to increase employee productivity and collaboration. By reducing travel to far-flung locations, yet holding remote meetings as if employees were face to face, companies can drive down travel costs and save time.

"Orange Business Services enables us to expand our coverage with our clients. Our clients wanted global Telepresence solutions, and we turned to Orange because they could offer harmonized support worldwide and deliver high quality solutions," said Doug Hancock, Regional Director at INX. "With the support of Orange, we are thrilled to provide reliable one-stop-shop Telepresence services to our end users."
