ConnectSolutions Addresses SMB Market for Affordable UC


May 21, 2013

It has been years since unified communications technology has been put to commercial use. But the technology still largely remains the prerogative of a few big companies. The complications of using this technology and its cost often make it unusable for small and mid-sized companies.

ConnectSolutions, a provider of unified communications (UC) solutions for small business, enterprise and government is seeing more opportunities in the small-and-midsize business (SMB) sector of the UC market. To address their needs, the company has recently acquired NextUC, a UC provider focused on SMBs. According to ConnectSolutions, this acquisition enables the company to offer an enterprise-class managed UC offering to small scale companies at an affordable price tag (News - Alert).

With the acquisition of NextUC, ConnectSolutions expanded its offerings with products such as NextUC Enterprise and NextUC SMB. With these products, the company’s MeetingCloud product get various new features and the company can now provide the right type of UC services to businesses of any size.

ConnectSolutions has stated that its new offering will make unified communications easy to handle. Earlier, many small scale companies that did not have the expert resource to manage UC found it difficult to handle. To help such customers, ConnectSolutions offers a free trial.

ConnectSolutions’ MeetingCloud platform is a managed cloud for Adobe Connect and Microsoft (News - Alert) Lync, offering easy installation and dependable on-going service. It can also be changed to support the growing needs of the client.

ConnectSolutions’ CEO and Co-Founder Michael Fitzpatrick said, “We believe the key competitive differentiator for ConnectSolutions UC solutions stems from our commitment to eliminate the friction from purchase to successful use. By providing an easy on, scale as you grow collaboration and communications solution, we can deliver enterprise-class capabilities to all size companies.”

Recently, TMC (News - Alert) named ConnectSolutions' NextUC Enterprise as a 2013 Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award winner.
