Converged Technology Group Recognizes New Cloud-Based Service as Cost-Effective Option for Enterprise Collaboration

Managed Services Partner to Host Live Demonstrations in April in Islandia and New York City

NEW YORK, March 31,2016 – The more business and consumer technologies merge, the simpler users’ work lives should become – or so people thought. Today, people use different technologies – landlines, mobiles and notebooks – for messaging, meeting and calling throughout the workday; this has created problems in the way people transition between devices, share content with project stakeholders, and create on-the-fly meetings unencumbered by physical location or communication tools. According to Converged Technology Group (, an award-winning Managed Services Partner (MSP) serving clients throughout the Northeast, for corporate CIOs searching for a cost-effective solution, a cloud-based approach to collaboration may just be the answer.

“For IT pros who are considering replacing their legacy key systems and PBXes or who have an existing Cisco unified communications solution now, but want a cost-effective, cloud-based complement or alternative, we’ve been impressed with Spark, Cisco’s new business communication service,” says Leo E. Galletta, President and CEO, Converged Technology Group. “Spark provides customers with audio, video, conferencing, file sharing, team messaging, mobility, desktop- and room-based services all in one simple-to-use cloud-based offering that increases both agility and productivity for corporate users without a significant up-front cost. With Spark, corporate users can move beyond traditional dial tone and messaging and focus on enabling disparate workforces to be increasingly agile and collaborative in a mobile and intuitive way."

Navigating through the industry’s many collaboration choices, however, isn’t easy, which is why Galletta recommends IT pros find an experienced solution provider that can help them determine what kind of communication and collaboration solution will work best for them – on-premise, cloud-based or hybrid. To help IT pros explore their options and to give them a first-hand look at Spark in action, Converged Technology Group is hosting a live event on April 12th in Islandia, New York, and on April 14th in New York City; for information on these and other events, visit the company’s website at
