Company Selected as ‘Best of Enterprise Connect’ Finalist for Second Consecutive Year
March 11, 2015, London, England and New York, NY – Acano today announced it has been selected as a finalist for Enterprise Connect Orlando 2015′s ‘Best of Enterprise Connect’ Award, which recognizes significant technological advancements in enterprise communications and collaboration. Acano Open, which unites previously incompatible audio, video and web technologies, was chosen as one of the six most impactful technologies that will be shown at Enterprise Connect.
“The ability to allow anyone using a browser to simply join a scheduled or unscheduled Lync meeting opens up a world of B-to-B and B-to-C applications,” said Mark Blake, CTO of Acano. “We look forward to sharing the details at Enterprise Connect, where we will formally announce the availability of Acano Open.”
Acano Open brings Lync and virtually all non-Lync users together with an unprecedented user experience. With no change to their usual workflow, Lync users can now enable their invitees to join a call, either scheduled or unscheduled, with any device including SIP, H.323 and even WebRTC. By WebRTC-enabling every Lync meeting, Acano provides everyone high quality plugin-free browser access to Lync meetings. Furthermore, users can experience high quality HD video and audio, and bi-directional content sharing.
“We are pleased to be recognized as a finalist for the 2015 ‘Best of Enterprise Connect’ Award for the second year in a row,” said Jackie Funk, Vice President of Marketing for Acano. “This recognition further reinforces that we are meeting the needs of progressive businesses that seek to enable teams and individuals to come together quickly and easily, without the requirement to be ‘on’ the same platform. We make meetings work.”
Acano will demonstrate Acano Open at booth #1237 at Enterprise Connect, Mar. 16-19 in Orlando, Florida. Acano executives and its customers will also participate in a variety of panel discussions focused on technology trends and innovation to demonstrate that ‘Everyone is Invited’ with Acano. The award presentation for the Best of Enterprise Connect winner will take place on the Keynote stage on Wednesday, March 18 at 9:00 am.

Mark Blake, CTO of Acano, will participate in a panel entitled, “WebRTC for Enterprise Video: Does it Really Matter” on Thursday, March 19. This panel will discuss the development of WebRTC over the past three years, key learnings and its impact on Unified Communications in the future.
