Wednesday August 1, 2012 – Cape Town, South Africa
VOSS Solutions, a company that enables its customers to profit from cloud-based enterprise communications by simplifying the design, delivery and management of collaboration services, today announced a partnership with Sizwe IT Group.
Sizwe IT Group is an organization that serves the South African and African market, offering comprehensive ICT service solutions; from providing infrastructure, networking, security, servers and storage, to end-user solutions and computer consumables. Sizwe, a Cisco Gold Partner, has an impressive list of clients in both public and private sector that benefit from their extensive IT experience, and highly skilled professionals.
Sizwe recognized VOSS as the market-leading solution to simplify the deployment and management of collaboration services from a central point of control. With a partnership agreement in place, Sizwe is now able to resell the VOSS technology to South African organizations that are looking to roll out the next generation of enterprise communications - such as advanced telephony, messaging, mobility, collaboration, and presence.
Stefan Peters, Commercial Director for VOSS Solutions, commented; “This partnership agreement is very exciting for VOSS, as it opens up a new channel of business in the South African market, where a number of highly dynamic organizations require the next generation of enterprise collaboration tools to improve business processes and speed growth.”
Deirdre van Schalkwyk, Strategic Product Business Unit Exec of Sizwe added; “We believe that collaboration services provide competitive business advantage, and there is great opportunity for South African organizations to reap the rewards that enterprise communications has to offer. We see VOSS as the key enabler to this market; the technology not only radically simplifies the process of deploying and managing collaboration services, it also gives organizations access to a self-care portal, allowing devolved administration of MACDs in real-time.”
Sizwe’s partnership with VOSS compliments its cloud strategy. Mega technology trends are changing how people work today: the cloud, mobile, social, and big data, are all impacting how businesses engage with their customers, partners, and employees in order to better compete. Sizwe is keeping all these trends in mind. In the case of cloud computing, Sizwe thinks of it as a key step toward helping its customers achieve better business agility, economics, and user experiences. Cloud presents an opportunity to rethink the role IT plays in defining a business strategy. Because of its power to fundamentally change how businesses operate and compete, the cloud is a game changer for the enterprise.
