AudioCodes Helps Microsoft Lync Deploy in Latin America
By Robbie Pleasant, TMCnet Contributor
Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync continues to spread worldwide, as AudioCodes has unveiled its partnership with Microsoft Unified Communications (News - Alert) (UC) solution integrators in Latin America to accelerate the deployment of Microsoft Lync in the UC market.
AudioCodes is a provider of VoIP technologies and Voice Network products, as well as a Microsoft Gold certified partner, and will provide Microsoft voice-specialized partners with their array of voice solutions to enhance the speed of migration to Lync.
In the past few months, AudioCodes (News - Alert) has helped migrate thousands of seats and voicemail boxes to Lync. By providing customers with a range of offerings, enterprises and government institutions have been able to work through challenges with interoperability and deployment. Institutions across Latin America, such as Acanto S.A in Chile and Intergrupo Connect in Colombia, have successfully migrated to Lync with help from AudioCodes Survivable Branch Appliances and Enhanced Media Gateways for Lync.
Yariv Golan-Atir, AudioCodes’ VP of marketing and business development for Latin America, said, "Institutions in Latin America are considering all the available options to increase efficiency and productivity, as well as improve customer service and satisfaction. AudioCodes gateway solutions play a pivotal role in the deployment of Microsoft Lync throughout the region. Our announced cooperation with many of Microsoft's local partners as well as close collaboration with Microsoft itself in Latin America, are key to this solution's successful ramp up."
Thanks to the work AudioCodes is doing, UC is becoming a more unified and more widespread. We’re seeing migrations to and interoperability with Lync everywhere these days, but keeping up with changes in technology can be a never-ending task. So, speeding the deployment as AudioCodes is will help get as many people to the same level as possible.
