21 Nov Skyway West Partners with Genband to Provide Kandy Cloud Based Unified Communications Services
VANCOUVER, November 21, 2016 – Skyway West, a Western Canadian Business ISP and advanced networking company, and Genband, a leading provider of real-time communications solutions, have partnered to offer Genband Kandy™ to Skyway’s customers across Canada. Kandy™ is a secure multimedia communications and collaboration cloud services solution providing an integrated suite of desktop, mobile and web-optimized business communications services geared to both enterprise and small business markets.
“All indications are that the market is moving toward a hosted future, and partnering with a global technology leader like Genband allows our clients a quick, flexible and scalable transition to UC,” said Ken Corey, Director of Business Development and Kandy™ Product Manager at Skyway West. “This gives them an immediate competitive advantage today, and ensures they are future-proofing their businesses as they evolve and grow tomorrow.”
Many businesses, both small and large, are saddled with outmoded PBX hardware that no longer meets the needs of today’s communications-rich environment. By deploying Kandy™, these companies can cost-effectively replace that legacy asset with a more reliable, feature rich, cloud-based unified communications solution backed by Genband’s carrier grade technology.
Genband has been registered to the International Quality Standards of ISO 9001 and TL 9000 since 2001, and their global reputation for quality and reliability was the number one reason Skyway chose them as their voice partner. “The value Genband places on rock-solid technology aligns with the reputation we’ve built at Skyway for connectivity, advanced networking and customer service,” Corey says.
The partnership with Genband gives Skyway customers affordable access to a UC solution which extends the reach of the desktop phone to computers, smartphones and tablets, allowing users to work anywhere, on any device. Office Collaboration Rooms make it easy for groups of any size — inside or outside an organization — to connect and collaborate with audio, video, messaging and shared screens. Clients can improve efficiency and lower costs by integrating multimedia communications into Lync, Salesforce, Google Apps and other essential business applications.
