June 7, 2016, New York, NY – Collaboration Squared, a global collaboration and video conferencing service provider and winner of the 2015 Infocomm and Enterprise Connect Innovation showcases, today announced the launch of its Cisco Spark offering, including a deep integration to their cloud Acano service Ubiety.
Cisco Spark is the next generation cloud collaboration platform that unifies messaging, meeting and calling; optionally paired with best in class Cisco deskphones, video phones and meeting room video collaboration endpoints. All managed via a free customer management portal with extensive reporting, user provisioning automation, SSO and proactive device trouble ticket alerts. Plans start from just $9.50 – per month, per user.
Aside from providing the standalone Cisco Spark service, Collaboration Squared uses their knowledge of the Spark API platform to build integrations and bots on behalf of customers. This adds business process value to the platform and ensures employees get maximum benefit out of the Spark platform with automation.
Secondly, Collaboration Squared would also like to announce the integration of their award winning cloud Acano interoperability collaboration bridging solution Ubiety directly into Cisco Spark with a service called “Ubiety Advanced Meetings for Cisco Spark”
For every Spark room that’s created the Ubiety service will replicate the Spark room with a Ubiety Acano Space virtual meeting room, replicate the membership and publish back the guest access information into the Spark app for everyone to see. The Spark user can then send out the guest access information to remote participants to join via the Spark app, video conference endpoints, Skype for business, web guest access and phone conferencing, with dial in access in over 40 countries included at no extra cost. With unlimited Ubiety Acano Spaces, Spark users can create, replicate and have unlimited participant scale available (license dependant).
Daryl Hutchings, CEO of Collaboration Squared “We believe the future of business communications will be built on the Cisco Spark platform. Collaboration Squared is laser focussed on building towards this future and delivering the best user experience. By extending the interoperability, scale and unlimited Ubiety virtual meeting rooms to Spark it truly completes this amazing business collaboration and communication tool”
David Maldow, Founder & CEO of Let’s Do Video and collaboration industry analyst “Ever since Cisco acquired Acano, the collaboration world has been waiting to see how Spark and Acano could be integrated. Ubiety Advanced Meetings for Cisco Spark has taken the lead in showing us the power of the Spark workflow with Acano quality, scale and interoperability.”
As winners of the 2015 inaugural Infocomm Innovation Showcase, Collaboration Squared will be returning to Infocomm 2016, exhibiting Jun 8-10 in Las Vegas, Nevada to showcase the new Cisco Spark service and Ubiety Advanced Meetings integration.
