When it comes to video conferencing, businesses struggle with the complexities around multi-vendor interoperability and the difficulty of communicating across different video conferencing systems. Often there is significant capital expenditure required in the installation of multiple video conferencing systems and a significant spend in expertise to maintain these systems. Virtual Connect is a cloud-based offering connecting SIP, H.323, Skype and Google Talk in one virtual meeting space accessible to everyone via the internet. The solution is an affordable, easy to use service, while maintaining quality and usability and is designed for the SMB and large enterprise space.
The partnership between BCS Global and Vidtel capitalises on the strengths and expertise of both partners to deliver Virtual Connect. BCS Global’s experience with cloud-based and customer hosted infrastructure solutions gives BCS Global strong distribution channels to take Virtual Connect into the marketplace. Vidtel’s proven architecture supports consumer technologies and acts as a perfect incubation partner for new services and capabilities like Virtual Connect. Mark Matone, Head of Products at BCS Global, described the partnership as “an exciting development in the continued evolution of Virtual Connect, which will have a transformative effect on video conferencing, helping accelerate the adoption rate of visual communications across the marketplace by providing users with a single easy to use service”.
