Converged Technology Group Takes New York Beyond the Dial Tone

Managed Services Partner to Host Experiential Video Collaboration Showcase in Islandia, NY; Brings Customized, Hands-On Demos to Customers’ On-Site Locations

ISLANDIA, NY, September 16, 2014 – Face-to-face communication just can’t be replaced as the preferred way to do business, but with the rising cost of travel and the time spent away from the office, corporate road warriors are looking for new solutions. With enterprise organizations embracing collaboration tools that can increase productivity and drive incremental revenue, CIOs are taking a hard look at video as a way to transform the way people work, delivering lower-cost, higher impact meetings, webcasts and conversations without geographic restrictions. To help, Converged Technology Group (, an award-winning Managed Services Partner (MSP) serving clients throughout the Northeast, will host a Collaboration Showcase from its Islandia, NY, headquarters this fall, and will deliver individual, experiential demonstrations on-site for key customers.

“The use of video in a corporate environment is already as easy, and will soon be as commonplace, as placing a phone call. If you’re searching for a way to take that next step, a way to drive incremental revenue and corporate efficiencies, video is the solution you’ve been looking for,” says Leo E. Galletta, President and CEO, Converged Technology Group. “From the desktop to the boardroom, video has a role to play. Most employees already have internet telephony (IP) phones on their desktops; adding video capabilities is a natural extension. And for group meetings, TelePresence in the boardroom truly is the ‘next best thing to being there.’ Our unique Collaboration Showcase will give IT pros and line-of-business stakeholders a place to experience these technologies hands-on.”

This fall, Converged Technology Group will host a Collaboration Showcase in its Islandia, New York, office, providing an unrivaled immersive video experience that demonstrates through a hands-on, experiential event how businesses can benefit from upgrading their current unified communication platforms to include video in deeper, more meaningful ways. When customers visit Converged Technology Groups’ Customer Experience Center, collaboration experts will be on hand to provide demos tailored to that client’s specific use case scenarios.

The solution provider will then take its experiential video demonstration on the road to key customer locations, showing individual clients how they can leverage video as an important collaboration tool in their specific and unique environments. Whomever the line-of-business stakeholders may be in that organization, Converged Technology Group’s collaboration experts will explore their challenges and demonstrate how collaboration technology can improve business outcomes.
