ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/14 --  Arkadin, one of the
world's largest and fastest growing providers of Unified
Communications and Collaboration services, announced today that it is
the winner of The Cloud Computing Excellence Award. Presented by
Cloud Computing magazine, the award honors exemplary performance in
bringing new and differentiated cloud-based offerings to market.
Arkadin won the award for Arkadin(R) Total Connect, a Microsoft Lync
hosted service. Integrated into Arkadin 'as a Service', Arkadin Total
Connect provides a fully integrated UC ecosystem with Microsoft Lync,
Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SharePoint. 
"It's an honor to be recognized for the excellence of Arkadin Total
Connect," says Mark Alexander, managing director, Arkadin North
America. "Our new cloud-based UC service gives businesses of any size
a convenient all-in-one solution to meet all their collaboration
needs, including telephony." 
Arkadin Total Connect empowers workforces to collaborate with instant
message, presence, phone calls, audio/web/video conferencing, shared
workspaces and email. Arkadin's highly secure and stable global
platform is adapted to customers' specific business requirements,
making it easy for organizations of any size to have their
collaboration services hosted in the cloud. Three all-inclusive
bundles integrated with Arkadin's business-class phone system are
available, in addition to custom implementations: 

--  Arkadin Total Connect Pro: Offers a complete UC package with all
    functionality, ideally suited to organizations that don't have an
    existing UC solution.
--  Arkadin Total Connect for Office 365: Targeted at companies with
    Microsoft Office 365 that want to extend their UC capabilities with
    more advanced features and telephony.

    with Lync on-premise that wish to expand their user base through a
    hosted feature-rich UC solution

Microsoft Creative Agency Achieves Operating Efficiencies 
 In addition
to product attributes a key factor in the judges' decision was
successful customer implementations. Seattle-based creative marketing
agency Lionfish set out to find a single hosted UC solution in a
public-cloud environment for all their collaboration and telephony
needs. With Arkadin Total Connect, Lionfish shed its out of date
services for the robust, all-in-one cloud-based solution to make
advanced collaboration tools affordable. In addition, they achieved a
key objective of having all services delivered from one platform and
by one vendor.  
Arkadin Total Connect is available in North America, the United
Kingdom, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Finland. Additional
countries will be rolled out later this year.
