Australian videoconferencing solutions specialists Vantage Systems and Global Videoconferencing Technologies have announced that they have merged to form Vantage-GVT.
As a single company, the former competitors have been able to secure critical mass in the Australian virtual conferencing solutions market. With more than 11 years of combined experience in voice, video and data deployments, Vantage-GVT has offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, the Gold Coast and New Zealand.
Vantage-GVT's focus is to maintain leading-edge collaboration services for enterprise customers through best-of-breed products and breakthrough services, according to a company statement.
The company claims that recent trends in the US and Europe have seen strong growth in voice, video and data collaboration -- particularly since September 11, as many people avoided travelling to meetings, opting for a videoconference solution instead. Vantage-GVT expects this growth to extend to the Australian market.
"I'm constantly surprised by the fact that many Australian companies do not have a clearly defined strategy on conferencing," said Mark Buckley, Vantage-GVT's CEO. "As a result, many companies waste money and opportunities because they are not maximising the power of all the resources they possess."
