News : Avaya, Google to Roll Out Cloud-based Subscription Services
New Delhi, June 2, 2015 -- Avaya and Google are expected to roll out cloud-based subscription services in India for the mid-market and large businesses later this year to make virtual contact centre offering cost and time efficient.
The Google-Avaya partnership is being offered under a pilot programme in the US, and the Asian region, led by India, is likely to see this debut, which will enable organisations to go to Google Website and request a subscription for contact centre seats hosted on the cloud. "This will allow Avaya partners to resell IP Office contact centre available on the Google cloud," Gary E Barnett, senior vice-president at Avaya Engagement Solutions, told ET. "We will reach worldwide overtime but India is one of the first markets globally to get services likely later this year."
The launch will be in a phased manner worldwide as the communications and networking solutions major feels that the regulatory environment will be one of the key bottlenecks in countries outside the US.
