Ancoris, Reseller of Google Apps for Business in the UK, has today announced a partnership with Esnatech, recently named a Gartner 2012 ‘Cool Vendor’.
The partnership will allow Ancoris customers to take advantage of the seamless integration between Google Apps and Office-LinX, Esnatech’s award winning unified communication platform.
Integrating Google Apps with the enterprise telephony infrastructure means users can now take advantage of great UC features such as Follow-me or Find-me. They can even use their Google Calendar to automatically determine where to route calls, depending on what their calendar says they’re doing or where they’re located. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what UC for Google Apps can provide.
Over 5 million businesses have already gone Google, to boost productivity and collaboration while lowering costs. The Ancoris offering of Esnatech with Google Apps will take productivity to the next level, fostering greater collaboration and improving business processes.
David McLeman, Managing Director at Ancoris commented: “Our partnership with Esnatech will bring UC within the reach of many more companies. Historically, UC was costly and disruptive to install, because it involved tearing out existing telephone and mail systems and replacing them with new technology. This solution, by contrast, allows businesses to create UC solutions by bringing together their current telephone systems and either an existing or a new cloud infrastructure, reaping the cost and collaboration benefits of both UC and cloud without the need for a costly migration project. With Esnatech on board, we can help our customers take the collaboration, mobility and connectivity provided by Google Apps to a new level, by adding UC”.
Mehdi Nezarati, Esnatech’s President of EMEA, added, “Esnatech continues to expand its network of premier Google Apps resellers in key global markets. Together with Ancoris, a leading Google reseller, we enable enterprises to drive productivity and reduce IT costs as they migrate to the Google Apps and Gmail platform and deploy industry-leading UC solutions across the UK.”
Office-LinX seamlessly integrates a broad array of enterprise telephony with Google Apps to provide customers with native call control in Google Gmail and Google Contacts and federated phone presence in Google Talk.
Because the Office-LinX software is interoperable with all major mobile operating systems, including RIM BlackBerry, Apple iOS, Google Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian devices, Ancoris customers will be able to drive greater enterprise mobility and deliver access to communication and collaboration tools and business productivity solutions from any device and any location.
