News : BT Wholesale and Avaya Come Together to Launch Cloud Solutions
Santa Clara, CA, United States, August 12, 2014 -- BT and Avaya announced a five-year agreement which will see BT Wholesale deliver Avaya’s Unified Communications and Contact Centre applications as a cloud service to midmarket and enterprise customers via the indirect channel.
Called Avaya Cloud Solutions, the service will give businesses and public sector organisations with 250+ employees access to the full suite of Avaya Aura(R) contact centre and UC products delivered over BT Wholesale’s high speed, high quality, managed Ethernet network. The service will be available only from Avaya accredited channel partners through BT Wholesale.
The joint initiative also offers existing Avaya customers a hybrid model with managed migration to help them evolve from on-site to cloud based services. In making the move to a hosted environment, BT Wholesale and Avaya will help companies better manage costs by eliminating the need for large, up-front capital investments and upgrades.
Joe Manuele, vice president of Global SP-SI, Alliances and Cloud, Avaya said: "With Avaya Cloud Solutions we are delivering a new path to greater business agility. New and existing customers can now access Unified Communications and Contact Centre Applications as a Service with BT Wholesale through our channel partners, safe in the knowledge that the flexibility, scalability and reliability that is synonymous with Avaya products is available in an even more affordable and manageable way."
