LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - January 19, 2017) - Arkadin, an NTT Communications company, and one of the largest and fastest growing Unified Communications and Collaboration service providers, announced today the introduction of ArkadinVision, a digital meeting space that seamlessly connects audio, web and video for a unified meeting experience. The new cloud-based service addresses market demand for simpler, more streamlined collaboration solutions that connect conference attendees across diverse endpoints for more productive virtual meetings.

ArkadinVision reflects trends underway in the market that are driving the need for instant connectivity between different technologies and platforms. Momentum for Skype for Business in enterprises and a mobile workforce that requires virtual collaboration anytime, anywhere and from any device are key factors. The service bridges the more restrictive, traditional approach to collaboration, with a unified all-in-one solution that maximises technology investments while removing barriers to communications.

"Arkadin demonstrates once again that they are on the cutting edge of where the collaboration market is headed," says Roopam Jain, Industry Director of Frost & Sullivan's Conferencing and Collaboration ICT Practice. "ArkadinVision offers a solid mid-market alternative that will be ideal for businesses that require a cost effective solution for core collaboration and video functionality across multiple platforms."

"Our customers now have a complete digital meeting space to meet the demands of an increasingly mobile workplace that requires more flexibility in how to collaborate," says Thomas Valantin, Arkadin's Chief Commercial Officer. "ArkadinVision will appeal to businesses looking for an affordable, easy to use tool that integrates web and video in a license-based model, and to organisations that want to consolidate multiple collaboration tools into a simple, all-in-one solution for maximum leverage of their UC and video infrastructure investments."

"We're confident ArkadinVision will appeal to businesses of all sizes looking to empower their work forces for greater productivity in our digitally transformed workplace," continued Mr. Valantin.

ArkadinVision is powered by Pexip's award winning Infinity meeting platform which seamlessly ties together communication tools for simple deployments and unmatched flexibility and scalability. The service is purpose built to drive swift adoption through economical pricing and a simple interface that enables users to easily collaborate across platforms with minimal training.

The digital meeting space is enhanced with the new Arkadin SmartStart on-boarding programme, which gives ArkadinVision users all the tools they need to on-board in a highly personalized manner in just under 10 minutes. Purpose-built for the digital workplace and completely mobile friendly, the new programme targets adoption head on by minimising business change disruption. ArkadinSmartStart will be introduced in Arkadin's other proprietary conferencing services later this year.

French Beta customer Effi'connect found the simplicity and interoperability with Skype for Business to be strong points: "We enjoyed the ArkadinVision experience during the beta testing," said Sebastien Rousseau, Effi'connect sales director. "End users found it simple to get started, and they really liked the video and audio quality. A key strong point is how easy it is to interoperate with Skype for Business."

ArkadinVision is supported by Arkadin's comprehensive live customer service, delivered locally 24/7 in 19 languages. The service is available immediately in Europe. Other regions will be rolled out later in the year.
