MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (March 2015) - Video Guidance, one of the nation's premier video conferencing companies, has announced it is offering a new, robust, cloud-based administration solution for video conferencing and unified collaboration. Addressing a customer need in the market, VG Connect Portal� provides users a complete multi-tenant, multi-vendor enterprise management system that can be deployed in the cloud.

Video Guidance can now offer its enterprise, educational and government customers, as well as its partner providers, the capability to manage their existing video resources as well as new cloud-based technology through a self-service, brandable portal.

VG Connect Portal features a single interface to provision and administer all video infrastructure, endpoints and users. Other key deliverables allow users to manage new highly scalable technologies; to receive detailed analytical reporting to promote user adoption and ROI; and to provide a system that can offer new services within the enterprise or to the market.

VG Connect Portal will offer free enhancements to its existing VG Connect VaaS customers that include detailed, customized analytic reporting and self-provisioning capabilities.

The new technology platform was developed by Oslo, Norway-based Synergy SKY, one of Video Guidance's strategic partners, which utilizes its one-of-a-kind administrative platform to include provisioning, monitoring, reporting, scheduling and billing to manage its cloud-based video services.

"It's been very exciting to work with the Video Guidance team to support the launch of VG Connect Portal," said St�le Reitan, CEO of Synergy SKY. "Its new cloud-based administration capabilities fill a gap in the marketplace, expanding Video Guidance's ability to provide comprehensive, managed video solutions for its global collaboration customers."

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."
