VOSS Cements Microsoft Partnership with Five New Market Offers

Wednesday May 17th, 2017 – UC Expo, ExCeL London - Today, VOSS Solutions, a Microsoft Certified Partner, unveiled five new solutions for Microsoft UC.

The solutions have been designed by VOSS to help companies successfully migrate to - and manage - their Microsoft Skype for Business and Office 365 implementations. With VOSS-4-UC, the industry leading UC management tool, companies can administer their complex Microsoft UC requirements (cloud, on-premises, multi-vendor, or hybrid environments) through a single user interface, and with little to no experience operating Microsoft UC. The five solutions from VOSS comprise:

Migrate to Microsoft UC (on-premises or in the cloud) – VOSS MiGR8-2-UC, a highly-sophisticated product, uses a revolutionary methodology to help companies rapidly and efficiently migrate large volumes of users, devices and UC services onto a Microsoft UC platform.

Office 365 + VOSS – Harness the power of VOSS to deploy Microsoft’s Office 365 Productivity Suite to create an all-in-one collaboration and communication solution, that is easy to manage and meets the needs of today’s complex UC deployments. This includes features like Skype for Business Online, Cloud PBX for voice and video, email, online meetings, and much more, to improve a company’s collaboration.  

Microsoft Skype for Business Voice -  VOSS automates and simplifies the deployment of on-premises or cloud-based Skype for Business voice solutions, to greatly reduce the stress of planning, delivering and operating Skype for Business, through expert guidance and best-in-class tools.

Optimize Microsoft UC - Over and above the benefits that VOSS UC migration and VOSS UC management tools bring to a Microsoft UC environment, discover the added value that optimization tools such as VOSS UC Analytics and VOSS Assurance offer. These products combine to deliver a clear view into the benefits of a Microsoft UC solution.

Microsoft Service Providers - Accelerate customer migrations and lower management costs with a single pane of glass view into all customers, the associated Microsoft UC applications, user endpoints, and network infrastructure.  UC Service Providers are constantly looking to improve the quality of service that they deliver to customers and the VOSS tool set enables them to do that while lowering the cost to serve at the same time.

In building these solutions, VOSS has embraced Microsoft’s Skype Operations Framework (SOF); a comprehensive guide to deploying and managing Skype for Business services in the cloud. Following a proven methodology, SOF equips companies with the right assets and tools to ensure a successful and cost-effective deployment. Centred around customer success and driving user adoption, SOF is broken into three distinct phases: Plan, Deliver, and Operate.

  • In the Plan phase, a team of VOSS experts discovers the customer environment and plans a thoughtful UC migration project.
  • In the Deliver phase, VOSS guides customers through four stages; to deploy, enable, adopt, and enhance their new UC environment to suit their exact needs.
  • In the final Operate phase, VOSS empowers customers to constantly monitor their deployment, to identify areas of improvement and execute remediation tasks in a highly efficient and automated way.  

Pat Richard, Principal Solution Architect at VOSS, commented; "With so much movement in the market, companies are crying out for automation tools to help with the migration and management of their Microsoft UC environments. I’m delighted that VOSS is bringing these Microsoft solutions to market at such a critical time."

Christopher Martini, VP at VOSS, added; "Our relationship with Microsoft continues to go from strength to strength. The solutions we offer to Microsoft customers solve very real problems, and we thrive on building UC environments that improve inter-company collaboration and fuel business growth, while making important cost and time savings."

Christopher Martini is presenting at UC Expo on Wednesday 17th May at 11am, on how to successfully transition Microsoft UC to the cloud.
