AVI-SPL Expands Collaboration as a Service Program Globally

AVI-SPL Collaboration as a Service helps organizations quickly outfit or refresh meeting rooms, flexibly scale UCC and cloud video capacity, manage UCC platform interoperability, and ensure technology up-time. With its subscription-based financing, it also provides flexible, predictable, and budget-friendly terms.

The program is the first of its kind to holistically account for owning and managing the full lifecycle of meeting room technology. The AVI-SPL Collaboration as a Service subscription gives consumers the opportunity to bundle hardware, software, installation, adoption services, cloud and on-site managed services, and analytics to optimize user experience with collaboration technology. It also consolidates and co-terms license renewals and hardware refreshes to ease technology upkeep and platform migrations.

“Many customers are rapidly deploying new meeting room technology to enable hybrid work and team collaboration as the world returns to the office,” said John Bailey, senior vice president of technology and innovation at AVI-SPL. “AVI-SPL is leading the way by providing new flexible consumption models for customers who need to plan, deploy, manage, and finance collaboration technologies that scale reliably and securely.”

Over the past two years, usage of UCC applications like Cisco Webex, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and Zoom has surged. As hybrid work takes hold, IT departments are updating traditional conference rooms to include these video meeting tools and ensure people feel connected, collaborative, engaged, and productive.
