Altigen Communications Joins Forces with TI Systems in Russia
The leading provider of integrated Microsoft-based Unified Communications solutions, AltiGen Communications, Inc, has announced its expansion plans into Russia with the addition of TI Systems to its global partner network.
In a press release, Paul Fullman, VP of sales for the UK and Europe at AltiGen, said, “Russia represents a significant new business opportunity for AltiGen. The addition of a quality, well respected partner such as TI Systems is exactly what we need to effectively enter this market. Their overall IT expertise and knowledge of Lync Server makes them the ideal partner to launch our business in Russia.”
A Microsoft Gold Unified Communications Partner, TI Systems, provides IT services to customers in both government and commercial sectors. It also provides services from the design of information systems and data centers to the development and maintenance of customized software. Based in Moscow, the company has offices there and in Ufa, the Republic of Bashkortostan, and employs over 100 people.
Denis Fokin, general manager of TI Systems, said, “The deployment of Microsoft Lync Server is a strategic part of our business strategy. In the Russian marketplace there is high demand for both Contact Center and Mobility solutions built on Lync Server. After reviewing the available solutions on the market we chose AltiGen Communications based on their leading edge UC solutions for Lync.”
AltiGen Communications was recently in the news when it announced that its new iFusion SmartStation for iPhone will be available through SYNNEX Corporation for the North American market. Available this month, iFusion is designed for the mobile business professional. It extends a traditional telephone handset and hands-free speakerphone to the iPhone. With this, there will be no need to switch between a landline and mobile phone.
With iFusion, the iPhone can be used as the single business communications device. The new device combines an integrated dock for syncing and charging, an ergonomic telephone handset and a wideband duplex speakerphone. AltiGen‘s iFusion eliminates the need for expensive redundant desktop phones.
