Cisco is a Gartner Magic Quadrant leader in the unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) space with its Webex suite, which focuses on services for meetings and collaboration, as well as messaging, telephony, workstream collaboration, and contact center capabilities. A variety of partner companies use Cisco technology as the basis for their own UCaaS offerings.

The most recent is Canadian business technology solutions provider OnX Canada, which has announced a new unified communications-as-a-service offering powered by a combination of Cisco BroadWorks and Cisco Webex. Cisco BroadWorks is one of the world’s most popular cloud business communication platforms. It supports over 26 million business users worldwide, in enterprises ranging in size from micro business to multinational corporations.

OnX is bringing together the two communication platforms to deliver a next-generation collaboration experience for traditional and remote workplaces alike. The combination of the two platforms is expected to allow OnX to provide its UCaaS clients with a fully integrated infrastructure of hosted VoIP, video endpoints, unified applications, video conferencing, and work stream collaboration.

“This partnership is a step forward in our long-term goal of delivering greater convenience and performance to our small and mid-size business clients. We’re excited to be benefiting from Cisco’s considerable expertise in this new UCaaS offering,” said Tony King, OnX Chief Solution Architect, in a statement. “We’re hoping that our clients will experience a truly modernized and comprehensive collaboration toolkit that enables greater productivity and flexibility.”

The combined solution will provide companies and their employees with always-on access, on any network, with any device, from anywhere, through a single app. Users can make and receive calls, instant message, set up audio conferences, host and attend video meetings, share screens and files, and integrate apps they use to build relationships and speed projects forward, all with robust built-in security features.

“Bundling together such a strong variety of communications and collaboration capabilities into one convenient package is truly revolutionary for our clientele,” said Paul Khawaja, President of OnX Canada. “This development will allow for organizations of any size to support and integrate robust and effective remote work policies. With these technologies at their disposal, they’ll also be able to rest assured that they networks will remain both agile and secure.”
