AVI-SPL Allies with Asia’s Top AV and UC Solutions Provider Vega

AVI-SPL has formalized its strategic partnership with Asia-based AV/IT leader, Vega. An extension of AVI-SPL’s Global Accounts Management Program that was announced earlier this year, the inclusion of Vega’s widespread talent and resources in Asia will greatly enhance AVI-SPL’s high-end, high-touch global delivery model. Under the terms of the agreement, Vega will be the primary source for supporting AVI-SPL’s multi-national customers through Asia, including key locations in India. A global provider, AVI-SPL will continue to oversee the project lifecycle from design to deployment, management and support, working hand-in-hand with Vega, rather than handing off, projects within the region to contracted resources.

Vega will join Australia’s top collaboration solutions provider, Connected Vision Group, as global provider AVI-SPL continues to expand its presence worldwide through key, strategic alliances with regional leaders. Prior to the formal partnership, the trio had already worked together for some time. In recent years, the global partners have successfully joined forces to support multi-nation projects for enterprise customers in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

As part of Vega facilitating and provision of services, all projects also benefit from AVI-SPL’s global managed services operations network. Powered by the company’s own innovation, the Unify ME Symphony platform, AVI-SPL proactively monitors and remotely manages its customer’s AV and UC devices, meeting room scheduling and call launching, as well as provides key data to improve business outcomes.

AVI-SPL is here and Vega is here.
