Teaming with StarLeaf gives ScanSource’s reseller partners access to advanced unified communications (UC) cloud solutions, alongside a portfolio of easy-to-use and tightly integrated cloud video meeting solutions.
“This new relationship promises to be a powerhouse that fuses our advanced cloud technology and innovation with one of the industry’s most recognized and trusted providers,” said William MacDonald, CTO, StarLeaf. “Together we will enable the reseller community to meet the communication needs of all businesses, from the very large right down to the small.”
The ScanSource reseller community will have access to StarLeaf’s complete portfolio of cloud meeting room, desktop and mobile solutions, alongside a range of services. The StarLeaf OpenCloud also allows management and interoperability with all video systems, including Polycom and Cisco.
“StarLeaf continues to gain traction in the market,” said Roopam Jain, director of conferencing and collaboration practice at Frost & Sullivan. “This relationship with ScanSource shows just how fast StarLeaf is moving towards becoming the glue that brings everything together, allowing users to call anyone, anywhere, irrespective of the type of their device.”
StarLeaf OpenCloud is an advanced platform that offers a rich communications environment and allows users to make and receive point-topoint video calls, as well as schedule and join video conferences. It is unique in its ability to deliver universal connectivity, allowing users of any video equipment to directly call anyone else on any other video system or platform. In this way, a video system registered to OpenCloud can directly call any user of Polycom, Cisco, Avaya, among others. This deep and far-reaching interoperability is fundamental to the longevity of an existing video installation, which may currently only be served by an aging infrastructure and restricted in its calling capabilities.
“StarLeaf OpenCloud is key to unlocking new markets for our partners, while also providing a great complement to resellers’ existing infrastructure,” said Rich Long, president of ScanSource. “With StarLeaf, we offer a unique solution that allows us to continue to leverage and enhance our existing vendor relationships and deliver the most comprehensive interoperability available in the market today.”
