Arkadin Introduces New Cisco Spark Services
Digital Workspace Spans all Modes of Communication with Global Audio Integration and Trusted Managed Services
Arkadin, a leader in Cloud Unified Communications and Collaboration services, announced the addition of Cisco SparkTM and Cisco Cloud Connected Audio – Service Provider (CCA-SP) to its market-leading solutions. The services are integrated with Arkadin’s PSTN audio for a complete meeting experience. A Cisco WebEx sales and service partner since 2001, Arkadin is one of the few partners to implement these services on a worldwide basis.
“Cisco has redefined the collaboration market through innovative cloud services that are transformative and enjoyable to use,” says Christophe Reyes, Arkadin’s Managing Director Unified Communications Service Line. “Together we are focused on bringing businesses into the future through UC&C products that are integrated with the highest quality PSTN audio for a more digital and productive way of working.”
Cisco ushered in a new era of collaboration with Cisco Spark by enabling companies of all sizes to buy messaging, meeting and calling services directly from the Cisco Collaboration Cloud. The service is secure, scalable and easy to manage. Users can message, meet or call anyone, anywhere at any time, and from any device. Whether on a room system, like the new Cisco Spark BoardTM, a desktop phone or a mobile device, they have the same meeting experience. Through a single click, users can turn a phone call into a video meeting and with a simple swipe, a video call can be moved from a room system to a mobile phone and to another room system.
