Black Box Launches Digital Workplace For Remote Collaborative Video

Black Box, a global solutions integrator, says Digital Workplace is a new service focused on unified communications and collaboration (UCC).

According to Doug Oathout, svp of strategy and partnerships, Black Box, “The pandemic has accelerated many organizations’ adoption of digital workplace solutions and exposed a critical need for effective business continuity in times of crisis. There’s never been greater demand for solutions that deliver the seamless connectivity and collaboration workers need to be productive, from any location in the world. Black Box is ideally positioned to help customers transition from legacy operations to the new Digital Workplace.”

The Black Box Digital Workplace is delivered in three components: 

  1. Premises UCC, in which Black Box will work with partners to create a customized UCC solution that meets the customer’s specific business requirements and provides modern, premise-based voice, video and collaboration solutions.
  2. Managed UCaaS, a subscription-based UCC service managed by Black Box leveraging cloud offerings from two key partners. UCaaS bundles best-in-class UCaaS solutions together with professional deployment, migration and support services to help clients move from legacy to modern UCC environments.
  3. Premises-to-Cloud Upgrade, a service that allows customers to transition to the cloud at their own pace and build in flexibility for future UCC requirements.
