In order to serve as a trusted advisor to our clients, we need to stay up to speed with the latest IT trends and solutions. To achieve that, our team of IT experts attends weekly training sessions conducted by various IT solution providers. Based on our extensive experience and sales volume with the suppliers, we receive exclusive, direct and usually in person training from these vendors. Our Tech Talks blog series offers a snapshot of these educational sessions.
Have you ever found yourself caught in the middle of a conflict between vendors when quality of service issues occur? Your telecom carrier says the phone system is to blame, while your unified communications (UC) solution provider says your bandwidth/network is the problem. Luckily, you can eliminate the blame game by getting your wide area network (WAN) and UC solutions from the same provider.
Evolve IP – an award-winning cloud services provider and one of our partners – provides both of those types of solutions and more. Our team recently met with Evolve IP to discuss a recent sales win and go over their offerings and the value they can bring to our clients. Here’s everything you need to know about this vendor and how they can potentially give your business a boost.
Evolve IP is one of the world’s fastest growing cloud strategy companies and supplies best-in-class cloud solutions to more than 1,500 enterprises and upwards of 350,000 users around the world. Many companies turn to Evolve to migrate a number of integrated solutions (including UC/IP phone systems, virtual desktops, infrastructure as a service (IaaS), disaster recovery, call/contact center, and more) onto one unified platform.
Featured Offerings: One Provider for Multiple Solutions
What makes Evolve IP stand out is the company’s status as a one-stop shop for a range of different solutions, which means that you’ll no longer find yourself stuck in the middle as vendors argue about who’s responsible for service issues. Here are a couple of their most notable offerings.
- UC: Evolve’s cloud-based UC as a service (UCaaS) solution makes collaboration easy with high-quality voice, video, chat, conferencing capabilities, and more. Additionally, the UCaaS offering integrates with top software as a service (SaaS) applications like Salesforce, Skype, Gmail, and Microsoft Office 365.
- Software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN): Evolve IP’s Cloud Connect/SD-WAN solution allows businesses to connect to the Internet and cloud services with better quality of service than traditional WAN solutions. Additionally, the SD-WAN offering prioritizes critical application traffic, supports a single dedicated failover connection, and gives users access to real-time statistics and performance metrics, among other benefits.
Case Study: A Health Insurance Broker Finds One Vendor for SD-WAN and Cloud Unified Communications
Our team recently connected one of our clients, a health benefits administrator, with Evolve IP for UC and SD-WAN solutions. The client liked that Evolve ensures HIPAA compliance and offers HITRUST-certified solutions. Getting a UC solution and SD-WAN from the same provider also factored into their decision to purchase solutions from this vendor.
