Arkadin, one of the world’s largest and fastest growing collaboration service providers, with a full suite of audio, web, video and Unified Communications technologies, today announced a channel-specific video conferencing solution and distribution alliance with Vidyo, Inc. Under the agreement, Arkadin’s global channel partners will be able to resell the cloud-based ArkadinVideo service. Based on the advanced VidyoWorks platform and Arkadin’s platform and service, the solution has an editable interface that allows the channel to add their own logo and branding.
“This is a winning strategy for the channel to capitalize on the momentum of cloud-based video conferencing,” says Mark Alexander, president of Arkadin North America. “The joint solution offers the best quality technology on the market, supported by Arkadin’s user training and ongoing client care. Our channel partners have been asking for this and we’re confident it will be a profitable component of their collaboration portfolio.”
