As an offshoot from old Tandberg which was acquired by Cisco in 2010, Synergy SKY has now gone full circle by becoming a Cisco Solutions Plus Partner.
As a Solutions Plus Partner, Synergy SKY will be able to cater to a wider market as Cisco salespeople will receive incentives and commission when they sell Synergy SKY solutions to their customers.
Becoming part of what Cisco calls “The Gold Standard for Video Conferencing Experiences” is not a simple achievement, as the list of requirements is comprehensive and demands high-quality solutions.
“The fact that we meet these requirements is a testament to the quality and importance of our solutions, and we are very excited to work with Cisco on solving collaboration challenges for companies around the world,” CEO of Synergy SKY Ståle Reitan says.
Today the Synergy SKY Suite is used by more than 5 million people globally. With the assistance of Cisco salespeople, Synergy SKY is able to reach a far wider market. As a Cisco Solutions Plus Partner, Synergy SKY has been certified as Webex Compatible in two categories: Easy Join Services (OBTP and OTD) and Analytics.
Cisco defines their supported solutions as:
Global assurance of quality, consistency, and performance
Reliable, secure, scalable, and future proof
Validated integration points
For Cloud or On-premise Webex Rooms deployments
"This means that when customers who implement the Synergy SKY Suite to optimize their VC set-up can rest assured knowing their unified collaboration investment is the most secure and reliable on the market", Ståle Reitan says.
