Virgin Media Business has completed its move into Unified Communications (UC) with the launch of its latest service, in collaboration with Cisco.
The Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution, which is offered as a Cisco Powered service, brings together collaboration tools including voice and video calling, presence and instant messaging.
It joins the portfolio of UC services Virgin Media Business already has on offer through Microsoft Lync UC, 4G mobile service through EE and SIP Trunking to become a market leader of no-fuss flexible and connected working.
Like all Virgin Media Business products, the new service will be supported through the company’s nationwide fibre-optic network and hosted in its own data centres – ensuring a reliable, high-speed and secure connection regardless of where companies are in the UK.
Duncan Higgins, marketing director, Virgin Media Business, said: “At the beginning of this year we set out to become a challenger in the Unified Communications market, and we now have a portfolio to rival anything out there in the market. Increasingly customers want more than just great connectivity: they want to transform the way they operate with tools that foster collaboration and innovation. With today’s launch we’re now able to offer full service UC to everyone we work with.
“IT departments spend a lot of time and money on simply running their organisations, but it’s time to look beyond that. The kit that employees are using can be as transformative for a business as winning a big new contract or a change of management.”
