Video Guidance Forms Strategic Partnership with Synergy SKY
Agreement offers customers a multi-vendor video conferencing administration solution
MINNEAPOLIS, Jun 16, 2014 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Video Guidance, one of the nation's premier video conferencing companies, has announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with Oslo, Norway-based Synergy SKY. The agreement helps Video Guidance offer its clients a one-of-a-kind administrative platform that provides provisioning, monitoring, reporting, scheduling and billing for the management of their cloud-based video services.
In particular, the new Synergy SKY software will help customers control with one interface all their Video Guidance cloud-based video services in concert with their existing premise-based, multi-vendor platforms, including Acano, Cisco, Microsoft, Polycom and Pexip.
Synergy SKY offers an easy-to-use management solution for medium- to large-sized companies that are responsible for managing video and unified collaboration services across an entire enterprise. Until now, there has not been a tool that simply expands these complex administrative capabilities across multiple video conferencing vendors.
Synergy SKY fills a vacuum in the market.
"We are proud to partner with Video Guidance to offer their customers the industry's only complete toolkit for supporting Video as a Service (Vaas) and Unified Communications as a Service (UcaaS)," said St�le Reitan, Synergy SKY's founder and CEO.
Synergy SKY's platform will allow Video Guidance to offer its partners, enterprise customers and educational and government providers the capability to manage resources inside their own network. But as importantly, it will manage resources received from Video Guidance through a self-service, brandable portals.
Wainhouse Research, an independent market research firm that focuses on critical issues in the video market, says: "In a world where services are king and cloud is all the hype, Synergy SKY's solution and business model takes much of the sting out of launching a video conferencing service."
Synergy SKY is headquartered in Oslo, Norway with offices in Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden and New York City.
