UK distributor Ascentae has signed an exclusive distribution agreement for UK & Ireland markets with collaboration and cloud solutions provider Re Mago Ltd.
The agreement will see Ascentae promote and distribute Valarea Solution, which forms a software-based, cloud-enabled meeting collaboration platform optimised for both local and remote teams.
In a statement announcing the agreement, Ascentae describes Valarea as a universal solution that goes beyond the limitations often encountered with dedicated UCC room systems like Microsoft Teams Rooms.
Valarea can be integrated with users’ Microsoft Teams accounts and allows for use of a variety of conferencing services, complementing the user’s existing meeting room technology with support for over 30 UC+C providers.
In addition to integration with any AV system provider, features of the system include support for passive and touch displays, native wireless display capabilities, kiosk mode and digital signage, management of meeting room displays using the Wireless Touch Controller app (for IOS and Android) and BYOD support allowing for personal calendars and cloud storage to become accessible on the rooms display.
“Ascentae are delighted to be launching Valarea in the UK because the solution fits in perfectly with our philosophy and product portfolio,” said Jon Knight, managing director at Ascentae. “The Valarea solution solves many of the challenges being experienced in collaboration spaces both now and for the future as we all adapt to a hybrid world.
“How can we support multiple UC platforms? How can users enable visual collaboration for whiteboarding, digital documents and physical objects? Valarea answers all of these challenges and more with a software application and lots of flexibility on hardware.”
Cristiano Fumagalli, Re Mago’s chief technology officer, described the partnership as a big step forward in the company’s efforts to meet the demand for solutions in the UK & Ireland.
