iAreaOffice Honored For Delivering Exceptional IP Communications Solutions
iAreaNet's cloud-based, "desktop-in-the-cloud" business communications suite, iAreaOffice, has been selected by TMC as a recipient of the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award, presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
The trend towards the cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) continues with worldwide spending on public IT cloud services projected to be more than $40 billion this year alone, according to International Data Corporation (IDC). That is expected to approach $100 billion in 2016, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 26.4 percent--five times that of the IT industry overall. And by the end of the decade, IDC expects at least 80 percent of the industry's growth, and the highest-value leverage of IT by enterprises and small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), will be driven by cloud services.
"For VARs, a solution like iAreaOffice can be a critical addition to their portfolio," said James deCrescenzo, CEO, iAreaNet. "SMBs and enterprises alike are implementing cloud-based delivery models for software as they look to reduce costs and bolster functionality–indeed, many have a mandate to do so. VARs can combine iAreaOffice with traditional IT services like LAN installation and security implementations, for a holistic solution to meeting market demand and gaining more share of wallet inside the small/medium enterprise or SMB."
iAreaOffice provides businesses, VARs and agents with a solution that leverages the benefits of the cloud service delivery model to deliver a best-in-class IT communications portfolio that can be combined with data and mobile connectivity. The secure "office-in-the-cloud" suite includes the latest version of Microsoft Office, which includes Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint, and can integrate other software to be delivered as a service, such as QuickBooks, Saga, Amicus, Fireworks or Dreamweaver. iAreaNet's programmers can also develop and deliver CRM and custom applications, all hosted on iAreaNet's powerful servers.
For IT staff and VARs, iAreaOffice also provides extras like Archive on Demand, which backs up and restores every file via the cloud. Also, iAreaNet automatically updates and upgrades to the latest version of a business' software portfolio, eliminating the costly administrative task of ongoing maintenance and user standardization. Businesses gain more control over their communications, mitigating IT headaches like out-of-policy downloads and software patching.
iAreaNet will be exhibiting at the CVx ChannelVIsion Expo, Oct. 2-5 in Austin, Texas, and James deCrescenzo will bring his expertise to a panel discussion on Public Clouds Vs. Virtual Private Clouds, October 4th 12:30 – 1:15pm.
"ITEXPO is a critical event for the IT and communications industry, and we are looking forward to advancing our role as a thought leader in the cloud communications space," said Andrew Campbell, Managing Partner, iAreaNet. "There is a sea change happening in IP communications that really brings to fruition the promise of all-IP services and virtualization. iAreaNet is proud to be at the forefront of developing and clarifying the opportunity for business, VARs and Agents."
"The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY were pleased to grant iAreaNet with an INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award for its innovation in IP communications. iAreaOffice has demonstrated outstanding quality and delivered exceptional solutions for its customers," said Erik Linask, Group Editorial Director of INTERNET TELEPHONY.
The 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award winners are published in the September 2012 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, www.itmag.com.
"iAreaNet has been recognized with a 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Excellence Award for proving its dedication and excellence in advancing IP communications," stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC.
