With Westcon’s services and support allied to Videxio’s high-performance, interoperable and secure video collaboration platform, GoldSeal gives partners a fully-featured, low-cost, high-reward route into this rapidly growing market.”
“Because GoldSeal integrates with existing UC and video systems, such as Polycom, Avaya, Cisco, and Skype for Business, partners can swiftly and efficiently add-value through the agility and mobility capabilities of a cloud service. Customers can empower more effective collaboration throughout their organisations as a result.”
