NEW YORK, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Enterprise Communications Group (SEN Group), a premier provider of business communications solutions, today announced it has partnered with UTC Associates (UTC), a leading, New York-based systems and network integrator in communications technologies, to deliver unified communications (UC) solutions to customers in the financial services, media, healthcare, insurance, real estate, education and government sectors. As part of the sales and service partnership agreement with the SEN Group, UTC will have full access to the Go Forward partner program, as well as the award-winning OpenScape product and solution portfolio.
Both companies share a commitment to understanding the unique needs of enterprises to deliver cost-effective, customized solutions designed to grow with a customer's business, as well as delivering the lowest TCO and highest ROI possible. Like the SEN Group, UTC has technology expertise in Voice over IP (VoIP), video, network infrastructure, security, disaster recovery and business continuity. The SEN Group and UTC will work together to supply customers with UC solutions that can offer significant green benefits by helping to reduce power usage and the need for travel and energy consumption.
"In today's tough economic environment, being able to provide our customers with an open, standards-based UC platform that secures their existing communications investment, while positioning them to take advantage of future capabilities, is a real asset." said Aziz Ahmad, President and CEO of UTC Associates. "Not only does the SEN Group's platform offer lower TCO thanks to easier administration through its data-center approach, but its openness enables us to customize the solution and better address the needs of our customers. In addition, the SEN Group's commitment to providing socially responsible green communications solutions matches UTC's own commitment to protect the environment. "
Inherent to its Open Communications strategy is the SEN Group's pledge to provide its partners and customers with standards- and software-based business communications. In addition, the SEN Group's OpenPath migration approach makes it possible for customers to migrate to UC at their own pace and within virtually any existing communications environment.
"We are committed to supporting our channel and are proud to embrace leading, minority-run companies such as UTC, who share our commitment to delivering world-class customer service," said Michael Garland, SVP of North American Channels for SEN Group .
