UNIFIED COLLABORATION SOLUTIONS

An Outcomes-Driven Approach to Connecting People, Places, and Work Product

You Deserve Better.

AVI supports a variety of unified collaboration (UC) platforms including Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, and Zoom in on-premise, cloud, and hybrid environments. But what makes us different is the unique way we think about UC. We believe the UC platform you deploy becomes part of an overall system that helps you achieve specific business goals.

unified-collaboration_human-impact

Create Human Impact.

With this in mind, we approach UC as a component of your total visual collaboration strategy.  We integrate unified communications, audiovisual technology, and digital media to generate more collaboration, help teams solve problems, and create positive business momentum. Through the proper alignment of these elements, user adoption accelerates, and employees get more work done, faster. We call it human impact.

Next-gen Approach.

If yours is like most (80% of organizations use two or more UC platforms), you face some interoperability challenges. How can you effectively deploy a multi-platform UC strategy? It requires enterprise-level AV expertise and innovation.  

Using AVI’s PRO Development process, we first work to understand how employees plan to use the unified collaboration systems and how they want to be supported. We examine your use cases and workflows. Then we translate the knowledge into a highly specific technical solution that meets the objectives.

HYBRID: ON-PREM + CLOUD

Hybrid services look different in every organization.  Some utilize Cisco on-premise with a Microsoft cloud service.  Others may use an on-premise service with two different cloud providers.  

Today, 80% of organizations use a hybrid infrastructure, and for good reasons. Cloud solutions are agile, scalable, and borderless. On-prem solutions are secure and reliable. What’s best for you depends on your organization’s collaboration culture. 

AVI’s process includes getting to know your organization, its culture and how people work. Then, we design a solution that best aligns with your workflows.

CLOUD

As more and more employees become remote workers, the demand for flexible solutions to collaborate, share content and manage data grows. In order to support remote workers and business growth, migrating services to the cloud can allow you to deliver intuitive, scalable solutions with ease.

Cloud environments allow scalable infrastructure for email, chat, voice and video conferencing, and file management. Of course, if you use more than one UC solution, be sure to consider interoperability and security.

AVI will work with you to meet user expectations while aligning the solution to IT security standards. The process starts by identifying how people prefer to work – our PRO Development phase of AVI’s Proven Process.

ON-PREMISE

Relying on cloud-based UC solutions just isn’t feasible for some organizations. Maybe it’s prohibited by regulatory requirements or perhaps it’s insufficient for technical needs – like media outlets that require extremely low latency video. In some cases, on-prem is the best choice.

Advantages of on-prem UC solutions: 

  • Information lives behind your firewall
  • Full control of data in and out
  • Mission-critical 24/7/365 reliability 

If your protocols demand extra layers of security and stability, pursue an on-prem solution for UC. AVI will work with you to determine the specific requirements needed for your organization.

MICROSOFT
