IComm partners with Acano to deliver truly unified communications
IComm, Australia’s leading IT consultancy and integrator of unified communications and cloud services, has announced a new partnership with Acano, an audio, video and web collaboration platform.
Acano is a global company offering a unique approach to collaboration technologies and making teams work better together. The Acano solution offers best in class integration to the Microsoft Lync, Skype for Business platforms, and Skype, Office365, Cisco and Polycom environments.
“IComm works closely with our customers to help them realise their unified communications goals by rolling out new technology platforms, such as Skype for Business,” said Rob Dell, Managing Director IComm. “Our new partnership with Acano means that we can now solve often complex platform interoperability issues, to ensure businesses’ existing and new technologies are fully integrated. This delivers the best communications solution to enable staff and customers to communicate from any device, anywhere, anytime.
“IComm look forward to working with our customers to empower them through Acano to realise the full potential of their different collaboration solutions.”
Acano’s unique technology makes it the only platform that seamlessly integrates traditional video endpoints with Skype for Business (Lync). Acano’s dual homed conferencing allows businesses using Skype for Business (Lync) to communicate with people within and outside their organisation without experiencing layout changes or reduced functionality. The Acano solution preserves native Microsoft Skype for Business workflow, ensuring users don’t have to learn new ways of scheduling and joining meetings, and providing the best possible collaboration experience for all users regardless of technology.
“We are excited to be expanding our Australian partnerships with the addition of IComm,” said Michael Chetner, GM of Acano ANZ. “IComm’s well respected-position in the unified communications space, along with their strong knowledge and experience in video collaboration integration makes them a great addition to the Acano team.”
Acano’s solution enables businesses to share content via traditional video systems to participants inside and outside the organisation. When making a point-to-point Skype for Business (Lync) call, employees can easily drag and drop traditional endpoints or conference rooms into the call for a multi-person conference.
The solution can be deployed as a Virtual Machine or on Acano optimised servers, providing support for both small and large deployments with unlimited capacity to scale as required.
