AUSTIN, Texas--()--TeleSpace LLC, a leading provider of Cisco Powered Cloud Services for business communications and enterprise collaboration, and IT solution provider NextNet Partners, today announced the national deployment of TeleSpace Vio™ Enterprise cloud services for Synergis Education.
“In addition, as a result of NextNet Partners’ out-of-the-box thinking on the solution design, solid execution during the deployment project, and unwavering focus on customer satisfaction, NextNet was awarded the TeleSpace Cloud Partner Spotlight award for outstanding innovation and execution in Q4.”
Synergis Education is a rapidly growing national provider of educational services for colleges and universities. Synergis required a reliable and cost effective cloud-based enterprise telephony solution for employees embedded in university locations across the US and their corporate offices. Synergis turned to TeleSpace and NextNet Partners to quickly design and deploy a cloud collaboration solution for employees at Synergis locations in Virginia, Illinois, and Arizona.
Synergis considered cloud-based solutions that would minimize the need for internal support resources, avoid significant capital investments for on-premise infrastructure, and accelerate deployment timeframes for multiple locations across the US. Synergis contracted with NextNet Partners to formalize requirements and drive the vendor selection process. After three weeks, the winning solution was the combination of Cisco Powered Vio Cloud Services from TeleSpace – providing a fully integrated enterprise applications platform for voice over IP, enterprise messaging, presence, instant messaging, video, and conferencing – coupled with turnkey network design and integration services from NextNet Partners. The TeleSpace contract was signed within one week, and the entire solution was provisioned, deployed and operational at the first Synergis location in approximately two weeks.
Patrick Bowler, CEO of TeleSpace, commented, “The TeleSpace Vio use case for Synergis Education is a perfect example of the business value provided by the latest generation of cloud-based applications for enterprise collaboration – enabling unprecedented levels of business agility, deployment flexibility, CapEx reduction, and expense control – and driving more effective business outcomes for their organizations in a timely and cost effective manner. NextNet Partners’ creative and innovative approach to the project allowed us to collectively reduce our time to market while at the same time driving long term reductions in the total cost of ownership for Synergis. From the very beginning of the planning process, the overall teamwork and collaboration with Synergis and NextNet was outstanding.
"In addition, as a result of NextNet Partners’ out-of-the-box thinking on the solution design, solid execution during the deployment project, and unwavering focus on customer satisfaction, NextNet was awarded the TeleSpace Cloud Partner Spotlight award for outstanding innovation and execution in Q4.”
Jim Niblack, a Principal at NextNet partners, stated, “The growth of cloud collaboration services is being fueled by customers’ demand for cost-effective, productivity-enhancing communications applications, and innovative new hosted service offerings from providers such as TeleSpace. TeleSpace Vio Cloud Services were a great choice for Synergis Education. Our alliance with TeleSpace helped us deliver on Synergis’ needs for rapid deployment, flexible configurations, capital expense savings, and operational efficiencies for end users. We look forward to a long and impactful alliance with the TeleSpace team.”
Lowell Vande Kamp, CTO for Synergis Education, said, “Serving 21st century students requires a 21st century company. Every component of Synergis technology is cloud-based, and the Telespace Vio Cloud Services was a perfect fit for our needs. We needed to quickly deploy a solution to support a new contract with a private university that has multiple locations in Virginia. At the same time, I needed an enterprise-grade solution that would support Synergis employees at our corporate locations in Arizona and Illinois, as well as a number of remote staff spread out geographically across the US.”
