Arkadin Receives Frost & Sullivan's 2011 European Hosted Collaboration Service Provider of the Year Award

Rated #1 in Industry for Exemplary Performance and Strategic Excellence

LONDON--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - Frost & Sullivan awarded Arkadin its 2011 European Hosted Collaboration Service Provider of the Year Award in recognition of outstanding leadership and superior performance. In making its selection, Frost & Sullivan assembled an independent panel of judges to compare the performance of leading service providers in Europe to identify the company that leads in several critical areas, including: market potential, customer adoption, go-to-market strategy, geographical coverage and product features and benefits. When assessed against these key success factors, Arkadin emerged as the winner.

"We introduced a compelling new feature to our European Hosted Collaboration Service Provider Awards programme by assembling an independent panel of judges to scrutinise our research and select a winner from a list of nominees presented by industry analysts," said Dorota Oviedo, Frost & Sullivan's Industry Analyst for Unified Communications & Collaboration group, ICT-Europe. "Arkadin's selection from a short list of four world-class hosted collaboration service providers is a testament to its rapid growth, broad product portfolio catering to companies of all sizes, and localised business approach."

"This award is extremely exciting and timely coming in our 10th anniversary year," says Christophe Reyes, Arkadin's Executive Vice President, Europe. "From the outset, our vision as a collaboration service provider was to help companies become more efficient with innovative and appropriate collaboration tools for a 24/7 global economy.
