KBZ to Drive Growth in Collaboration Cloud Services
Named First U.S. Distributor of TeleSpace℠ Cloud Services for Unified Communications and TelePresence
(DOYLESTOWN, PA) – September 4, 2013 / PRNewswire – KBZ, a Cisco Authorized Distributor specializing in Collaboration, Unified Communications and TelePresence solutions and recognized as Cisco’s Video Distributor of the Year in 2012, today announced that it is the first U.S. distributor to offer TeleSpace Cloud Services for business-class, carrier-grade voice and video.
The partnership marks a key milestone in the growth and adoption of enterprise cloud computing services, given that industry analysts at IDC are predicting 80% of the Global 2000 will have 30% of their IT systems and capacity provided by cloud services by 2016, and the top applications moving to the cloud are centered on workforce collaboration. KBZ’s reseller community can now bring the new cloud offering, “ZCloud Collaboration Powered by TeleSpace,” to customers with confidence, knowing that TeleSpace holds the rare Cisco Master Cloud Managed Service Provider certification and is one of the few providers delivering cloud subscriptions for the full Cisco Collaboration portfolio today.
“Organizations are using cloud-based Unified Communications to achieve unprecedented business agility and productivity for fixed and mobile workers,” said TeleSpace CEO Patrick Bowler. “They also are increasingly finding that TelePresence subscriptions help cost-effectively strengthen business relationships, expand access to expert resources, improve distance learning and training, and speed product development. The alliance with KBZ expands awareness of these compelling reasons to migrate collaboration applications to our cloud, especially with KBZ’s comprehensive portfolio of value-added services that extends our overall capacity to deliver best-in-class cloud services for our joint partners and their customers.”
KBZ has a nationwide sales and services team of Collaboration experts that enable partner success with Cisco solutions. “We’re extremely excited to make Cisco Powered Cloud Services for Hosted Collaboration (Cisco HCS), the cloud version of Cisco’s entire suite of collaboration applications, available to organizations of virtually any size through our reseller partners,” said Kyle Zorzi, vice president of KBZ. “The flexibility to meet customers’ specific needs with four variations of Unified Communications subscription types and five for TelePresence is a clear demonstration of TeleSpace’s market understanding. Their innovation even extends to allow customer choice in how to connect to the cloud network.”
