Today’s enterprises are finding themselves in a harsh economic climate, causing them to race against an ever-shrinking budget to deploy capabilities and methods for boost productivity. In their search for the flexibility and efficiency of anytime, anywhere access to information, these enterprises are increasingly turning to cloud-based UC solutions.
In a move to support North American enterprises in their integration of unified communications with cloud-based applications, long-time Google enterprise partner Onix Networking has combined forces with Esna Technologies (News - Alert) (Esnatech), further expanding Esnatech’s worldwide network of leading Google resellers and partners.
Esnatech, a communications solutions company, is a provider of the award-winning Office-LinX solution, a virtual application platform that delivers enterprise mobility, unified messaging, dialing and faxing from Google (News - Alert) Gmail, Contacts and Calendar.
Under this agreement, Esnatech’s Office-LinX solution will be able to seamlessly connect any premise-based PBX (News - Alert) system with cloud-based applications, including Google Apps and Microsoft Office 365. Enterprises, even those with complex, legacy telephony environments, won’t need additional investment in telecommunications hardware to deploy cloud-based UC since Office-LinX is interoperable with all major PBX and mobile operating systems.
“Teaming with Onix and integrating our Office-LinX technology with their IT solutions portfolio will deliver significant value to customers in both the U.S. and Canada,” said Davide Petramala, vice president of Sales and Business Development for Esnatech, in a statement. “Their strong focus on Google implementations opens up a rich market opportunity for us as the demand for cloud-enabled UC continues to grow.”
The addition of Office-LinX to Onix’s solutions portfolio will help the company provide seamless unified communications to its end-users, and drive the bottom line value that their customers desire.
“Onix is excited about the relationship with Esnatech,” said Tony Bianco, president of the Google Apps division of Onix. “We think bringing the power of Office-LinX and its market-leading solution together with the deep experience of a cloud-computing solutions provider like Onix changes how organizations think about the possibilities of unified communications, messaging, and collaboration.”
