Posted by on May 2, 2013 in Local News & Alerts | 0 comments

Local systems integrator CCS Group has earned the Cisco TelePresence Video Advanced Technology Partner (ATP) Programme designation. Cisco’s ATP network is an invitation-only programme. To participate in the programme, partners must already possess technology and market credentials in ATP focused technology.  As an essential component of Cisco’s collaboration strategy, the Cisco TelePresence Video ATP Programme is focused on providing a new way of working, in which everyone everywhere can be more productive through face-to-face  collaboration with TelePresence Video solutions.

As the workforce becomes more mobile and distributed, leaders recognise the benefits and growing impact of video as a key part of business collaboration. Video is becoming more pervasive. Case in point: Today’s desktop and mobile devices have a camera, if not two.  The Cisco TelePresence portfolio creates an immersive, in-person experience over the network – empowering you to collaborate with others like never before.   Cisco supports video to and from the desktop, mobile devices, and the boardroom with easier, more transparent interactions and consistent experiences. Affordable solutions provide superior scale through hardware, software, and cloud architecture strategies, and help enable any-to-any video through standards-based technology.

Ian Cook, General Manager at CCS, says: “CCS has always invested in technologies that help our customers reduce costs and communicate effectively. Most businesses in Bermuda have customers, partners or branch offices that are overseas. In the past, having face to face communications with overseas contacts required travel which can be costly and time consuming.  With Cisco TelePresence face to face communication is only a click away.”

Cisco TelePresence is not new to Bermuda; several businesses are using it today.  Kory Logan, CCS Product Development Manager, says: “CCS is the first local systems integrator to complete the training and certifications for the solution.  For the first time since Cisco launched TelePresence, Bermuda businesses have access to local support and expertise.  With local support and some of the new enchantments to the Cisco TelePresence solution we’re confident that it will become much more pervasive in Bermuda over the next few years.”

CCS will be hosting a seminar at the Bermuda Underwater Exportation Institute (BUEI) on Wednesday, May 8. CCS, along with representatives of Cisco, will explain the advantages that Cisco TelePresence can deliver and demonstrate how the solution can be used to improve day-to-day office communications.  The seminar will start at 8:30am and run until 11:30am. Those interested in attending can RSVP to Sylvia Jones at Corporate Concierge on (441) 296 8663 or email
