Next Generation Hosted Collaboration Solution Launched by En Pointe

En Pointe Technologies Integrates Multiple Communication Services Into a Single Solution

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 23, 2012) - En Pointe Technologies, a national solutions provider of information technology products and services, announced today the launch of En Pointe Collaboration Solution (ECS). This hosted, subscription-based service integrates voice; mobility; audio, web and video conferencing; presence technology; and call center as part of the next generation in communications solutions. En Pointe started by building upon Cisco's Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) platform. From there, ECS tapped into its relationships with other leading technology vendors creating an unrivaled, robust, single source, comprehensive collaboration solution offered as one monthly bill with a predictable cost.

"While Cisco's HCS backbone provided a unique feature-set for us to build upon, En Pointe's relationships with industry leaders like Microsoft and BlackBerry bring additional features to ECS that take the solution even further," said Michael Rapp, executive vice president for En Pointe. "From this, ECS provides flexibility and a unified communications and collaboration portfolio to allow greater workforce productivity and cost predictability."

Although an enterprise-grade service, price point and design positions ECS as economical and scalable. ECS provides companies a number of business benefits including:

  • Financial Advantage: lowers CapEx and offers a predictable monthly, user-based cost via subscription
  • Scalability: businesses can quickly set-up new or changing facilities thereby improving business continuity.
  • Productivity Improvements: delivers greater regional and global communication while eliminating unnecessary technical set-up and training.
  • Service Reliability: real-time system monitoring and problem resolution, transparency with and multi-site redundancy
  • Flexibility: designed to support the complex needs of remote workers, global travelers and virtual meetings.

En Pointe leverages Equinix International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers to deliver ECS to customers. "For IT services such as En Pointe's Collaboration Solution, it's essential to deliver the performance necessary for a quality end-user experience. As part of our robust ecosystem of IT service providers, En Pointe relies on Platform Equinix to provide the security, reliability, low latency connectivity, and high quality of service its customers require," said Vince DiMemmo, general manager, global Cloud and IT Services at Equinix. "In addition, the Equinix Marketplace provides En Pointe a unique opportunity to market its services directly to a wide range of prospective customers and partners within and around Equinix's global network of data centers."
