3D Networks Selects Avaya Flare® Experience for Management Team in Australia
06 Dec 2011
Key 3D Networks' executives in Australia will have an Avaya Desktop Video Device supporting Avaya Flare® Experience to help save executive travel time
3D Networks estimate yearly savings of AU$35,000 per person through reduced executive interstate travel
Company plans to expand Avaya Flare Experience throughout offices in Asia-Pacific region over next year
SYDNEY, Australia – Avaya today announced that specialist systems integrator, 3D Networks, will deploy the Avaya Flare® Experience real-time collaboration solution throughout its Australian offices to provide all executives with the multi-modal next generation collaboration solution. 3D Networks will deploy the Flare Experience on the Avaya Desktop Video Device (ADVD), to provide, voice and video telephony, web conferencing, social media, calendar and scheduling functions from a single user interface. The company also plans to expand its deployment of Avaya Flare on the ADVD to its offices throughout Asia-Pacific region over the next 12 months.
3D Networks was particularly impressed with the high quality video conferencing available through the Avaya Flare Experience, and its ease of use through the drag and drop function on the screen. The executive team at 3D Networks travels frequently throughout Australia and the company anticipates saving time and budget while it enhances collaboration among team members who can interact through just a touch of the screen. The company anticipates that the solution will help reduce the amount of travel – and therefore carbon footprint, dollar costs and time out of office, and projects saving approximately $35,000 per person in travel within the next 12 months and increasing productivity by approximately 30 percent.
Over time, the Platinum-certified Avaya Connect Channel Partner with offices throughout Asia-Pacific, also plans to deploy Avaya Desktop Video Devices with the Flare Experience to executives throughout the region.
3D Networks uses the Avaya Aura® unified communications architecture for multi-session, multi-modal communications and collaboration whilst still preserving investments in its existing Avaya CS1000 infrastructure. Avaya Aura's Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based platform enables 3D Networks to roll out next generation unified communication applications and services like the Flare Experience, or centralized unified messaging and conferencing, simply and cost effectively.
The Avaya Desktop Video Device with the Flare Experience was recently highlighted as "best-in-class" for integrating video conferencing with other core enterprise applications (see Additional Resources below). The Avaya Flare Experience offers quick and easy access to real-time communications and collaboration tools. Capabilities include desktop video, social media, audio/video/web conferencing, multiple directories, presence, instant messaging, and contextual history. It eliminates the need to use different interfaces and different directories to communicate across various types of tools.
The Avaya Desktop Video Device is a fit-for-purpose collaboration tool with high definition video and high quality audio combined with a capacitive touch screen interface. The Avaya Flare Experience and Avaya Desktop Video Device together enhance user productivity by offering a single look and feel for all modes of communication, be it voice video or instant messaging. The intuitive controls allow users to quickly and efficiently collaborate with customers and colleagues, setting up conferences and sharing of documents, all the while with full contextual history at their fingertips.
Quotes: "The quality of video collaboration in the Avaya Flare Experience is extremely high and means that face to face meetings can be reduced – this has the potential of saving our business a considerable amount of money in travel whilst making us more effective and a greener company overall. Importantly, by utilizing this technology in-house, we can provide real-world experience and demonstrate the benefits for our customers." Mark Whitfield, Country Manager, Australia 3D Networks
"Delivering real-time business collaboration solutions is Avaya's core business. The Avaya Flare Experience has captured the imagination of customers across Australia, and this deployment at 3D Networks typifies the way in which forward-thinking companies are looking to bolster the efficiency of collaboration, reduce costs and enhance customer service – with a solution that is simple and fun to use." Rob Wells, Managing Director Australia Avaya
