Intermedia again named a Gartner ‘Visionary’

Our Office in the Cloud integrates phone service, chat, presence, email and other communications services hosted in the cloud.

This is what the world calls “unified communications as a service”. And we’re proud to announce today that Gartner, Inc. has named us in the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service, Multiregional.

What does it mean to be a “visionary”? It means that Intermedia has been recognized by Gartner for our “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision”.

What’s inside our UC solution?

Our Office in the Cloud integrates core unified communications functionality (telephony, messaging, presence, email); related services (file sync and share, conference calling, email archiving, Outlook backup) and even infrastructure services such as SIP Trunking.

All our services are tightly integrated and easy to use. And because they’re so well integrated, they enable unique capabilities such as voicemail-to-email, calendar integration with rich presence, Microsoft Lync® click-to-call and others.

Here’s what our president, Mike Gold, had to say:

“Intermedia’s vision is to provide an integrated, one-stop shop for cloud IT, and we believe that our position in Gartner’s UCaaS Magic Quadrant validates this vision. Our customers and partners benefit from our deep portfolio beyond UCaaS and the power of our HostPilot control panel to integrate and unify the experience.”

Beyond UCaaS: Pioneering the ‘Business Cloud Platform’

Our tightly integrated suite of services actually stretch beyond how the traditional definitions of UCaaS. We call it “the Business Cloud Platform.”

For example, we integrate SecuriSync, our proprietary file sync and share service. We also integrate Intermedia AppID, a single sign-on service that improves security while reducing support costs and cutting down on wasted app licenses.

Both of these services go beyond traditional definitions of UCaaS—which means our Office in the Cloud offers a unified user and admin experience that extends past communications and collaboration to many other essential IT services.
