Conferencing Giant Selects New, Wide-Ranging Regional Partner

November 04, 2015

It’s pretty much a given in the U.S. business world these days that conferencing is the ‘new thing’ that companies are embracing. Given the time savings and reduced costs that come with conferencing – as opposed to jumping on a plane for a face-to-face meeting -- it’s no wonder that more and more in the enterprise are jumping aboard.

So it makes sense that other parts of the world are seeing the light as well. To that end, Revolabs – a premier provider of audio solutions for unified communications, enterprise collaboration, and professional audio applications across a wide range of markets – has announced it named Yamaha Music Latin America S.A. as its newest distributor. Yamaha Music Latin America, based in Panama City, Panama, will market and distribute Revolabs' UC audio and video conferencing products in more than 30 countries throughout Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.

"We're very enthusiastic about expanding our presence in this new region,” said Jim Fairweather, Revolabs' EVP of Global Sales. “I think businesses there will welcome the availability of the innovative communications solutions we’re offering.”

The distribution agreement includes Revolabs' growing line of UC telephony products for offices, huddle rooms and small conference rooms, including the FLX 2 wireless conference phone offering hardware-placement freedom and exceptional connectivity; the FLX UC 1500, which allows geographically dispersed teams using different technologies to communicate using the best medium for each user; and the Yamaha YVC-1000, a Bluetooth and USB conference phone system for medium to large conference spaces.

"We're excited to be able to bring Revolabs' unified communications products to customers in this market,” said Tomohiro Akiyama, president of Yamaha Music Latin America S.A. “We're looking forward to developing the Yamaha sales network in the region."

According to a Revolabs company release, “Offering unmatched audio quality that allows users to ‘hear every word,’ the company's teleconferencing and microphone systems are utilized across the globe for a variety of applications, from webcasts and video conferencing to podcasts and broadcasting.”
