AVI-SPL Expands Collaboration-as-a-Service Offering


AVI-SPL announced the expanded release of its Collaboration as a Service (CaaS) offering to support customers around the world. The purpose-built program, first piloted in the U.K. last fall, addresses pressing audiovisual and unified communications and collaboration technology procurement, deployment and management needs of organizations enabling hybrid work and learning.

AVI-SPL Collaboration as a Service helps organizations quickly outfit or refresh meeting rooms, flexibly scale UCC and cloud video capacity, manage UCC platform interoperability, and ensure technology up-time. With its subscription-based financing, it also provides flexible, predictable, and budget-friendly terms.

AVI-SPL says its Collaboration as a Service subscription gives consumers the opportunity to bundle hardware, software, installation, adoption services, cloud and on-site managed services, and analytics to optimize user experience with collaboration technology. It also consolidates and co-terms license renewals and hardware refreshes to ease technology upkeep and platform migrations.

Upgrading rooms with video capabilities and outfitting them for optimal meeting equity requires considerable resources. AVI-SPL says Collaboration as a Service reduces that burden on IT while also reducing the total cost of ownership of the technology and providing a flexible way to scale deployments up or down based on need.

The AVI-SPL Collaboration as a Service program model aligns with how many IT departments already consume other technology, like laptops and mobile phones. It offers flexible financial terms and interest-free options, enabling companies to conserve capital for strategic business investments.

With Collaboration as a Service, AVI-SPL handles the financing, designs and deploys the customers’ collaboration solutions, and provides ongoing technology support and life-cycle management.
