By cathy Shepherd
In response to the growing need for robust remote working initiatives, Avaya Holdings Corp., has launched Avaya Spaces in Kenya and Ghana.
This cloud meeting and collaboration app is being offered with 60-days free access to any company and longer for education and non-profit organizations.
Among many features is video conferencing for up to 500 participants and unlimited online storage.
Accessible from a browser or mobile app, the solution will enable citizens and organizations in these African countries to connect and collaborate remotely – going beyond integrating chat, voice, video, online meetings and content sharing.
Fadi Hani, Vice President of Middle East, Africa & Turkey, Avaya, commented, “The people of Africa are facing the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic with incredible resilience, and from the beginning of the crisis, we have been helping our customers and partners across the continent transition to effective remote working strategies.
With the launch of Avaya Spaces in Kenya and Ghana, even more people and organizations will be able to benefit from a cost-effective solution that enables business continuity regardless of where employees are located.”
Since January, Avaya has seen an increase of more than 2,700% in video collaboration traffic on the Avaya Spaces platform. In the past weeks alone, several hundred universities, schools and other organizations worldwide have engaged Avaya to gain the connectivity and collaboration capabilities they need to address the challenges of this pandemic.
For example, Charter College International High School in Johannesburg, South Africa is one of many schools that has transitioned to online learning and is using Avaya Spaces to enable this. In Egypt, Avaya and Orange Egypt, a provider of integrated telecommunications services, have partnered to jointly enable all educational institutions in the country to implement remote learning initiatives.
