ScanSource Strengthens Portfolio with Lifesize Addition

September 08, 2017

Communication and collaboration is the straw that stirs business. Video conferencing is nearly ubiquitous across the industry landscape, as it is a cost-effective way to meet with colleagues and customers from around the globe. Whether you’re planning an upcoming event or making that presentation to seal the sale, video conferencing is quite the valuable tool.

This week, ScanSource Inc., a provider of technology solutions and products around the globe, announced the newest member to its dance card, Lifesize. Bringing Lifesize on board gives ScanSource partners access to exceptional cloud-based, integrated, connected conference room solutions.

Businesses of all shapes and sizes are demanding cloud-based solutions – from the conference room to the c-suite. And, Lifesize fills this void nicely, as it provides hosted and cloud video services, in addition to HD voice and video systems, which empower resellers to offer more comprehensive conferencing solutions from the ScanSource portfolio. 

 “As the hosted video conferencing market continues to grow, our partners are looking for additional ways to deliver video solutions to fit their varying customer needs,” said Rich Long, president, ScanSource Communications. “The Lifesize portfolio will be a strong addition to our video solutions offerings within our ProAV practice.”

The Lifesize platform is easily integrated into third-party endpoints, so within minutes HD communication and collaboration can commence. Now falling under the ScanSource umbrella, resellers of Lifesize conferencing solutions gain the benefit of ScanSource training, support, demo equipment and more.

“Partnering with Lifesize, a company that has long been at the forefront of video collaboration, provides our customers with additional cloud solutions and services to enhance their range of AV applications,” added James Vickerage, president, ScanSource Imago.

Those in the United States or Canada can acquire Lifesize solutions from ScanSource Communications. Those in Europe must contact ScanSource Imago.

Conferencing – video or audio – requires much to be a success. Quality connection, equipment, etc; Scansource resellers can now revel in the access to an exceptional HD conferencing solution. The only question I have for you is: Are you conferencing in HD?
