AVI-SPL Adds New Microsoft Cloud Solutions using Skype Operations Framework, Simplifies Integration to Enhance Workplace Collaboration

AVI-SPL’s newest Skype for Business integration services offer companies hand-in-hand partnership to unify and bolster their Skype for Business experience in meeting rooms of all sizes

ORLANDO, Fla. – June 16, 2017 –  Understanding the pivotal role Skype for Business plays in improving workplace collaboration, AVI-SPL today announced the addition of two Skype Operations Framework accredited offerings, Integrated Meeting Service and Integrated Cloud Voice Service.

By using Skype Operations Framework methodology, AVI-SPL, a global collaboration solutions provider and 2016 Managed Video Conferencing Services Company of the Year, offers organizations a hand-in-hand partnership throughout their Skype integration lifecycle. The multifaceted approach, led by AVI-SPL’s Microsoft collaboration and communications engineering team, equips companies with a comprehensive guide through the envisioning, planning, migration, adoption and operations stages company-wide. The newly launched cloud solutions using Skype Operations Framework will provide additional specialized services during each phase.

With Skype Integrated Meetings Service, AVI-SPL partners with organizations around the world to extend the Skype for Business experience to all collaboration spaces, not just the desktop. Working closely with its customers, the global integrator designs, deploys, and manages the cloud-ready solution to unify the audio, video and web conferencing into a single platform and enable meeting rooms of all sizes. Whether new devices are needed, or existing technology is leveraged, the simplified path is designed to create a more consistent user experience, drive adoption, and improve business outcomes.

The Integrated Cloud Voice Service from AVI-SPL supports organizations moving users to the cloud while still benefiting from their on premise investments. For companies planning a transition to, or currently using, Microsoft Office 365, AVI-SPL provides expert assistance to plan, enable, and manage an organization’s Skype for Business Cloud PBX and fully integrates audio, video and web conferencing services complete with PSTN dial-in capabilities.

“The key to a successful meeting is synchronizing all components of collaboration to create a seamless, easy-to-use workflow,” said Rob Whatley, AVI-SPL’s Microsoft practice leader. “Utilizing Microsoft’s Skype Operations Framework, with AVI-SPL’s ability to integrate AV, voice, and video throughout the process, helps to ensure that success for our customers.”

Stephen Boyle, vice president of U.S. Partner Strategy and Programs at Microsoft Corp. said, “AVI-SPL’s ability to harmonize AV, video, and voice enhances the Skype for Business experience for our mutual customers across all collaboration spaces. We are pleased to see AVI-SPL’s commitment to Microsoft.”

AVI-SPL is recognized by Microsoft as an accredited Skype Operations Framework partner and sells through the Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider program, which enables AVI-SPL to be the center of the customer relationship by providing direct billing, sell combined offers and services, as well as directly provision, manage and support products and services.
