Logicalis to Host Unified Communications & Collaboration Executive Forum including a Live TelePresence Demo in Three Cities Simultaneously

The Future Of Real-World Unified Communications Is Here - See It In Action!

    COLUMBUS, OH, March 23, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Who: Logicalis, Inc., an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and services.

What: The solution provider will host an event focused on accelerating business with unified communications, including a live demonstration of Cisco's TelePresence video conferencing system. Logicalis and industry experts will detail how business and technology working as one can produce growth opportunities. Attendees will experience the future through live demonstrations and learn how to accelerate growth with a combination of voice, data, collaboration and video conferencing technologies.

When/Where: March 25, 2010, in three locations simultaneously:
Boxborough, Massachusetts: 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM ET
Southfield, Michigan: 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM ET
Richardson, Texas: 7:15 AM - 12:00 PM CT

Additional Info: The executive forum will be held in three locations simultaneously where attendees will have the opportunity to experience Unified Communications in a real world environment. They will also learn how optimizing operations can provide the knowledge needed to keep their business running at peak performance.

A keynote presentation by Julie O'Brien, Cisco Director of Solutions Marketing Unified Communications & Collaboration, will illustrate the ways in which business and technology are melding, share real-world uses for unified communications, and discuss how a unified communications solution can help clients save money and grow their businesses.

The event will feature a live demonstration of TelePresence, Cisco's video conferencing system that easily could have come straight out of a sci-fi movie. No jerkiness. No dropped signals. Life-size people on the screens across the table, so it looks like they are in the same room with you. Sound so clear you can literally hear a pin drop. In short, it's everything people have always wanted in video conferencing but never had, until now.

Quote: "If you want to know whether or not your solution provider believes in what it is selling you, just ask if they have implemented the solution themselves. Logicalis uses the same unified communications solutions it sells to its customers, in-house every day. What's more, Logicalis is a Cisco TelePresence Authorized Technology Provider with TelePresence sites in the U.S., U.K., Brazil and Argentina. We have implemented the TelePresence meeting solution internally to enhance our ability to work with our own multinational customers and reduce travel demands on our own executives. This is a huge competitive advantage for Logicalis, its multinational clients, and potential TelePresence customers. We have over 25 trained Cisco TelePresence professionals in the U.S. that are excited about sharing this experience with our clients. You can hear about this, you can read about it, but to truly understand the impact a TelePresence solution can have on a business, and to see what unified communications is really all about, you simply have to experience it." - Jim Dossias, Director Unified Communications, Logicalis.
