Avanade Partners with Nectar on Global Microsoft Skype for Business UC Solution

Avanade is integrating Nectar’s UC Management Platform to provide enhanced visibility for cloud, hybrid, and on-premises UC Skype for Business managed services.

Nectar Services Corp., a Jericho, N.Y.-based company that develops and deploys advanced network monitoring, management, and diagnostics software for the Unified Communications (UC) industry, has entered into a five-year agreement with Avanade to make Nectar’s Unified Communications Management Platform (UCMP) an integral part of Avanade’s UC Skype for Business offering to its global clients.

By integrating Nectar’s UCMP into the Avanade Management Platform (AMP), Seattle-based Avanade Inc. will be able to provide enhanced visibility for cloud, hybrid, and on-premises UC Skype for Business managed services. Avanade, which offers digital services, business solutions, and design-led experiences, delivered through the Microsoft ecosystem, will also offer Nectar’s UCMP as a value-added service to its UC consulting service.

Avanade, an 11-time winner of the Microsoft Alliance Partner of the Year award, has taken a leading role in providing Skype for Business planning, implementation, and management for enterprises’ UC networks. Avanade can now offer its enterprise clients a highly differentiated UC solution providing the following benefits:

  • Increased business agility with less risk
  • Insight into voice service quality, resulting in improved voice services
  • Enables clients to confidently utilize UC to collaborate in new and innovative ways while minimizing disruptions
  • Improved end-user adoption and satisfaction

Nectar was the first UC monitoring and diagnostics solution selected as a depth partner under the Microsoft SDN API program; it is a Microsoft Gold Partner and is Microsoft Skype for Business certified. Nectar was also selected by Microsoft as one of only three Microsoft IT Pro Tools Partners for its Skype for Business program. Nectar provides predictable and actionable analysis which users can utilize to manage, monitor and proactively troubleshoot in “real-time” for improved visibility and service delivery across integrated voice, video, and collaboration sessions.
