StarLeaf Recognized with Customer Value Leadership Award

September 28, 2016

With so many video conferencing providers out there, it can be hard to wade through the options and determine which solution is best for your company. The job becomes a little easier, though, when influential companies like Frost & Sullivan recognize certain organizations for being a step ahead of the rest. StarLeaf is next in line to reap the benefits of Frost & Sullivan’s attention, as they have just been awarded the 2016 Customer Value Leadership Award within the video conferencing industry category.

This award is a big deal for StarLeaf because it validates claims that they are an innovative force within the video conferencing endpoint market and the hosted/cloud video conferencing market in EMEA. This recognition could not come at a more opportune time, as both markets are expected to grow 9.7 percent and 20.2 percent by 2019. With this award from Frost & Sullivan, StarLeaf may find themselves at the head of this growth.

Vaishno Devi Srinivasan, Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan, shed some light on why StarLeaf was chosen for the honor by saying, “Today’s enterprises require cloud video conferencing service offerings that truly provide flexibility. With its versatile video portfolio, StarLeaf offers integration across its own and third-party endpoints and infrastructure, with a high level of interoperability, reliability, security and ease of use.” 

StarLeaf does seem to be on top of things when it comes to the abovementioned characteristics. Their innovative ideas have led to interoperability between multiple modes of connectivity, and their cloud platform provides unlimited scalability. StarLeaf’s management capabilities are also impressive, as they deliver a single unified interface across their vast range of video conferencing solutions. Not only are these solutions easy to use and affordable, but they can also be used in various settings, including meeting rooms, small collaboration spaces and personal use.

Given the name of the award—Customer Value Leadership Award—it’s a given that Frost & Sullivan has determined StarLeaf to be excellent when it comes to helping customers. The organization found StarLeaf to be impressive in that it’s solution, OpenCloud, does not ask customers to compromise. They also safeguard investments in legacy video equipment, offer native room systems and integrations for Skype for Business. Not only that, but users are provided with free access to its Breeze software client. These offerings make it clear that customer value is at the top of StarLeaf’s agenda.

The company is excited to receive the award from Frost & Sullivan, with Mark Loney, StarLeaf’s CEO, saying, “We are honored to receive this prominent award from Frost & Sullivan…Such recognition validates all of our hard work, engineering ingenuity and importantly recognizes the value that we bring to our customers and the market.”
