Actis Technologies is introducing comprehensive Unified Communications to India. Actis, with a 40 year legacy, is a pioneer of high-end, high-definition Communication and Collaboration technologies like 3D Telepresence, HD Videoconferencing, Edge-blending, Interactive Training Centers among others. Actis will be incorporating Unified Communication Solutions with platforms like Microsoft Lync - an integration of Voice, IM, Presence, Video and Email, into its Enterprise Collaboration Solutions.
Abhimanyu Gupta, Director, Actis Technologies said, “Research shows that the value of the premises-based integrated UC market is set to reach $2.3 billion by 2016. In 2010, the market registered 22 per cent year-on-year growth to reach $674.4 million. Our UC offering will enable higher-quality audio and video collaboration with much more versatility and flexibility because of the presence of specialized hardware, as existing solutions are limited to software platforms.”
The offering will also enable for the first time, the integration of meeting and conferencing facilities to hardware platforms like Cisco and Polycom, thus preventing the obsolescence of the legacy hardware systems. Unified Communication Solutions uses the power of software to streamline communications between people and organizations, regardless of medium, platform, device, or location.
“Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Skype will make UC more prevalent. Organizations are viewing UCas a viable means for improving the quality of communication between the enterprise and the outside world and extending effective and versatile collaboration tools too. We are already deploying UC for government and corporate clients.” Mr. Gupta said.
Unified Communications is slated to streamline and bring down communication costs. “One of the primary advantages from a UC deployment is empowering employee-to-employee and information access. It has the potential to save significant costs, but also can deliver ROI by improving communications with customers, streamlining business processes and, ultimately, changing the way companies communicate” he added.
