Siemens Enterprise Communications Announces Strong Growth through Strategic Partnerships and Expanded UC Service
Unified Communications (UC) is a set of programs and protocols that allows users to contact each other using a range of different media platforms at any given time. It brings together diverse communication devices, from mail programs to video conferencing and telecommunications, to establish streamlined connectivity between users. As the UC marketplace continues to grow and the need for effective solutions increases, certain companies have established influential positions, such as Siemens Enterprise Communications.
In an announcement today, the company, a premier provider of enterprise communications solutions, confirmed that increased growth and expansion has occurred in the critical North America market. The research firm Gartner, Inc. named Siemens a Magic Quadrant UC “Leader” in 2011 confirming the company’s position as a premier UC provider. Recent new products, channel expansions and critical awards and accolades have all combined to boost Siemen’s momentum. This forward movement is also attributable to recent strategic partnerships with other communications providers, such as ArrowS3, Ingram Micro, Black Box and Verizon.
The constant evolution of the unified communications market has required organizations to scramble to stay competitive. Social networking, mobile computing, and remote processing have all contributed to a changing environment. As a result of that demand, Siemens Enterprise Communications' customer-centric approach has driven an over 25 percent increase in new business orders in the United States. According to Brian Jones, Vice President, Black Box Network Services, "…[Siemens] executives have demonstrated a unique and keen understanding of the needs and commitment to partner relationships and in today's world of communications and collaboration, we've been very successful in working together to bring award winning and very customized solutions to the market."
A comprehensive Siemens-based UC system offers increased productivity, both for IT teams and end users. Work-related collaborations, regardless of where employees are located or the devices they use, offer further savings. The global solutions and support provided by Siemens in turn results in substantial ROI for customers. Companies can use these types of returns to fund the kind of work they do best—meeting customers’ needs and increasing shareholder profit.
