Arkadin Named a Skype for Business Launch Partner for New Meetings and Voice Services in Office 365

Arkadin announced it has been named a launch partner for new Skype for Business meetings and voice services in Office 365. Arkadin will serve as a key resource for driving the rollout of the new services.

According to Didier Jaubert, Arkadin’s Chief Products and Partnership Officer, being named a launch partner is a testament to Arkadin’s eight-year history of success in hosting voice in the cloud for Microsoft UC services: “Arkadin is extremely well positioned to help clients successfully transition to Skype for Business in Office 365 as a complete platform for meetings and voice. As a subsidiary of one of the world’s largest Telecoms, with sophisticated global voice architecture and integration capabilities, we can help customers reduce the costs and complexity associated with voice deployments. Our professional end-user support, training, migration and change management capabilities guarantee efficient rollouts.”

“In short, Arkadin offers clients a single-source for deploying Office 365 as a business class phone system, contact center and conferencing platform delivered in the cloud,” added Mr. Jaubert.

“Arkadin’s inclusion as a launch partner for the new Skype for Business meetings and voice services in Office 365 is well deserved,” states Bill Haskins, Senior Analyst & Partner at Wainhouse Research. “Microsoft’s introduction of the new services makes this version of Office 365 the most complete, enterprise-ready release of the productivity suite ever. Implementing PSTN conferencing and PBX functionality requires specific expertise to provision, manage, and successfully onboard customers. Arkadin has deep experience and the right skill set required to provide a best-in-class experience here – including audio, video and web conferencing, telephony, help desk, network and IT expertise.”

Further evidence of Arkadin’s capability with Microsoft Office 365 and its commitment to meeting Microsoft customers’ needs, is its recent designation as a Microsoft Gold Communications Partner.
