Santa Clara, CA, USA, May 21, 2019 -- Avaya Holdings Corp. (NYSE: AVYA) announced an acceleration of their ongoing relationship with Collab9, a FedRAMP-authorized Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) provider focused on the public-sector market. The two companies announced a go-to-market strategy that makes Collab9 the exclusive FedRAMP platform for Avaya in delivering Avaya OneCloud Contact Center, and Unified Communications and Collaboration solutions to federal, state and local government organizations across the U.S.
The expanded partnering agreement will help Avaya and Collab9 better address the critical needs of government organizations as they undertake digital transformation strategies.

"Collab9 has been a valued Avaya partner, and this decision to make Collab9 our exclusive FedRAMP platform for all new opportunities strengthens our ability to grow together and serve customers in the government market," said Jerry Dotson, vice president, Government Solutions, Avaya. "Avaya OneCloud UCaaS and CCaaS provide digital communications for flexible, reliable, and secure government operations, giving agencies best-in-class tools and resources to meet and exceed the needs of citizens and the government employees who serve them. Accelerating our relationship with Collab9 to more fully leverage their FedRAMP and other compliance and certification capabilities will enable our solutions to be more widely available and adopted in the government market, and broadens the FedRAMP-authorized Avaya portfolio enabling us to migrate customers to the cloud faster."
"Avaya is recognized throughout the U.S. federal government as well as state and local government agencies as the best choice for UCaaS and CCaaS solutions, and today’s announcement strengthens our ability to further address the critical needs of these organizations and enable successful digital transformation strategies that are equal to or better than those of many private sector enterprises," said Kevin Schatzle, CEO, Collab9.
