PLDT ALPHA Enterprise and Avaya seal partnership on video conferencing solutions


Recognizing the emergence of the “virtual enterprise” wherein widely distributed organizations collaborate remotely, PLDT ALPHA Enterprise and video conferencing solutions provider Avaya Radvision have announced a special partnership for its latest offering in video collaboration, Scopia.

The solution provides PLDT ALPHA Enterprise customers with exclusive managed video conferencing efficiently bundled with a range of ICT products and services. This was revealed to guests who attended a recent Scopia APAC launch event in Shangri-La, Makati.

PLDT and Avaya highly recommend the “all-new video collaboration solution”, which is designed to accommodate any level of usage. According to Avaya, “Scopia will play a key role in an entire suite of multi-media experiences and collaboration tools featured in Avaya Video Collaboration.” It seamlessly integrates video and mobile collaboration for enterprises that increasingly field a mobile workforce across diverse geographical locations.

“Operating on the traditional models of collaboration just won’t cut it anymore in today’s fast-paced and ‘always-on’ enterprise organizations,” said PLDT FVP and Head of PLDT ALPHA Enterprise and SMART Enterprise Sales and Marketing Jovy Hernandez. “We are providing our ALPHA customers with a superior advantage over their competition who otherwise contend with scattered and slow business processes, dispersed organizational structures, and decision making times that frankly, are no longer quick enough.”

Attendees of the launch were presented with a survey of both “Social and Market trends” as well as the “Customer Communications Landscape” which support these observations on rapidly changing enterprise collaboration realities. Avaya Radvision was also featured in a demonstration of its features and benefits throughout different enterprise verticals and industries.

After a lively Q&A followed by a raffle leading to the event’s close, enterprise customers had a clearer understanding of how much more crucial video collaboration is in any business geared for growth.

“In partnership with PLDT ALPHA Enterprise, Avaya Scopia Video Conferencing provide users with the freedom to connect with anyone on any network or operating system,” said Avaya Philippines Country Manager Ed Doctolero. “Its simplicity allows swift connections to customers, partners and colleagues in a single click, simultaneously leveraging on any mobile device anywhere.”
