March 17, 2014 – UXC Connect has been awarded ‘Global Transformational Partner of the Year’ and ‘APAC Most Innovative Cloud Partner of the Year’ at the 2014 Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Global Executive Partner Days conference.
Ian Poole, CEO, UXC Connect, said, “These awards demonstrate UXC Connect’s commitment and vision in building and launching its cloud-based Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) solution called iTaaS for enterprises”.
In August 2013, in collaboration with Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, UXC Connect launched iTaaS to deliver unified communications as a service to Australian organisations. The solution helps enterprises take advantage of the commercial and technical flexibility and cost-effectiveness of a cloud-based model to address the challenge of delivering communications services for a highly mobile, application-driven workforce.
iTaas is based on the Alcatel-Lucent OpenTouch Enterprise Cloud (OTEC) platform. UXC Connect was the first partner globally to take OTEC to the market. As well as offering the service directly to existing customers, UXC Connect is expanding its go-to-market model to offer the service to more customers through other system integrators and service providers.
Poole said, “Today’s enterprises need to connect employees in a workspace that is defined by multiple work styles, devices and applications. Digital communication and collaboration have dissolved the rigid bonds between occupation and location and between our private and professional lives. Work is now something you do, not somewhere you go.
“This shift is fuelled by consumerisation, explosive growth in mobility, cloud computing and unified communications. In addition, tough economic conditions and increased competition means that organisations need to reconsider everything from real estate and technology to new cultural models.”
In response, UXC Connect is offering customers a range of true consumption-based workspace bundles that includes unified communications, desktop hardware and office applications like Google Apps.
UXC Connect is also enabling the transformation of its customer’s network infrastructure by implementing Alcatel-Lucent’s Unified Access solution. This solution gives users a consistent network service and application experience on both wired and wireless devices.
