Arkadin Wins Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for 'Arkadin Total Connect' UCaaS Solution

Equipped With Advanced Telephony the Innovative All-in-One UC Solution Enables Businesses of All Sizes to Leverage the Full Power of the Virtual Office

PARIS, FRANCE -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- Arkadin, an NTT Communications company and one of the largest and fastest growing providers of Collaboration and Unified Communications (UC) solutions, today announced it has won a TMC 2014 Communications Solutions Product of the Year award for Arkadin® Total Connect, a Microsoft Lync hosted service. Launched earlier this month, the service is built through a partnership with Microsoft, the leading provider of UC technologies, and delivered by Arkadin 'as a Service.' Award sponsor TMC is an integrated global media company with multiple titles spanning technology, telephony and cloud computing.

Arkadin Total Connect offers a complete UC ecosystem encompassing Microsoft Lync, Exchange and SharePoint. Workforces are empowered to collaborate with instant message, presence, phone calls, audio/web/video conferencing, shared workspaces and email. The services are seamlessly integrated with Arkadin's hosted, enterprise-class telephony. Businesses benefit from the convenience of a single all-in-one solution that offers substantial cost savings from on-premises UC deployments.

"We're thrilled to be recognized for our innovation in bringing Arkadin Total Connect to market -- especially when judged among so many worthy peers," says Didier Jaubert, Arkadin Chief Partnership Officer. "Our customers can now benefit from having the most advanced business productivity tools and telephony capabilities in a single, all-in-one cloud-based UC solution."

Arkadin Total Connect for Microsoft UCaaS is offered in three all-inclusive bundles integrated with Arkadin's business-class phone systems:

  • Arkadin Total Connect Pro: Offers a complete UC package with all functionality, ideally suited to organizations that don't have an existing UC solution.
  • Arkadin Total Connect for Office 365: Targeted at companies with Microsoft Office 365 that want to extend their UC capabilities with more advanced features and telephony.
  • Arkadin Total Connect Lync Expansion: Ideally suited to organizations with Lync on-premise that wish to expand their user base through a hosted feature-rich UC solution.

Arkadin Total Connect for Microsoft UCaaS is immediately available in North America, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Finland. Additional countries will be rolled out later this year.
