CBCI Telecom Was Selected as Official Acano Partner in Canada

Canada's Leader in Visual Communications Will Offer Acano's solutions

MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - Nov 12, 2013) - CBCI Telecom, Canada's Leader in Visual Communications, announced today its partnership with Acano for the Canadian market.

Acano™ was launched earlier this year to bring together people and ideas by uniting previously incompatible phone, video and web technologies in coSpaces™ -- described as "virtual meeting rooms, but radically better". The company believes that coSpaces will enable people to work wherever their ideas and creativity thrive.

CBCI shares Acano's vision about visual communications, and since Acano was created by former industry leader partner of CBCI, this partnership was a legitimate path to follow. Indeed, today's people are becoming more mobile and the number of communication options are growing. To avoid missing or even excluding key people from discussions and meetings, it is now essential for people to join a remote meeting using a phone, a tablet, a computer, a video system, or even a Microsoft Lync client license.

"CBCI Telecom is the leader in the Canadian visual communication market with very strong relationships in the enterprise, health, education and government sectors," says Larry Satterfield, Global Vice President of Sales at Acano. "We look forward to working with this strong team to rapidly expand the Acano footprint in Canada."

"Acano believes human progress is fueled by ideas from people discussing and exploring them, and we have been working on making it happen for 25 years now," said Denis Dumouchel, President of CBCI Telecom. "We are very excited to join this young and dynamic company and offer Acano's solution in Canada. We do believe it is all about simplifying visual connections between the right people at the right time, from wherever creativity thrives."

Companies might have trouble with choosing the right technology and evaluate their own needs and how they will evolve over time when it comes to visual communications. There are so many options available today and Acano is one of them. CBCI Telecom supports businesses in better understanding videconferencing options and offers guidance and expertise in implementing the right solution.
