Marco Selects AGT to Power Managed Video Conferencing-as-a-Service Offering
Applied Global Technologies (AGT), a proven provider of managed and visual collaboration solutions, today announces the availability of Marco Managed Video (MMV) – a cloud-based video collaboration service powered by AGT’s Video-as-a-Service platform that connects HD conference systems, desktops, web browsers and mobile devices in a single conference. Marco, a leading managed services provider of voice, data, video and print solutions, expands its robust IT services portfolio with Marco Managed Video, marketing it to customers via a simple monthly fee. Leveraging AGT’s white-label offering for partners, Marco Managed Video showcases Marco’s brand identity and is available as a desktop video client as well as a mobile video application in Apple iTunes and Google Play.
“More and more companies are moving to mobile video devices versus traditional conference rooms,” states Trevor Akervik, director of managed services at Marco. “Marco wanted to offer a managed video conferencing solution that keeps up with the mobile lives of corporate America. Marco Managed Video makes video collaboration easier and more mobile and affordable than ever.”
“With a mutual foundation in managed services, AGT and Marco share a common belief in providing clients technology and services that are not only future-proof, but turnkey and easy-to-use,” explains Mark Cray, CEO of AGT. “In addition to providing our partners a proven service to resell, we allow them to create their own pricing models and packaging. This flexibility allows Marco to add an interoperable video service to its portfolio that coincides well with their existing managed services pricing model. We know Marco will continue to drive business success with a cloud video service that takes end user accessibility to the next level.”
The partnership with AGT enables Marco to quickly deliver a turnkey managed video conferencing package to its customers, extending high-quality video and content sharing from the traditional conference room to a variety of video-enabled devices and platforms.
