Arkadin, an NTT Communications company and one of the world’s largest and fastest growing providers of Unified Communications and Collaboration services (UC&C), announces a partnership with ROI Communications, an IT Telecommunications solutions provider based in Wrentham, Mass. The alliance provides synergies for both companies: ROI Communications extends its services with Arkadin’s complete portfolio of audio/web/video conferencing and UC solutions, while Arkadin gains a world-class partner for its fast growing channel partner program.“We look for partners who are top in their category for ensuring we have the highest quality collaboration solutions,” says Joe DeStefano, President, ROI Communications. “Arkadin fits this mold perfectly. Their comprehensive range of cloud-based services is complementary to ours, enabling us to offer greater value to customers seeking communications efficiencies.”  “ROI Communications brings tremendous strength to our channel program,” says Frank Gorkis, Arkadin VP of Channel Sales, North America. “Their depth of experience with Telcos and cloud computing provides a strategic advantage as we expand our UC&C capabilities to meet market demand.” According to Gorkis, ROI Communications was instrumental in securing Portland, Maine-based Woodard & Curran. The 800-person integrated engineering, science and operations company required a hosted Skype for Business solution via Office 365. Following a successful 60-day pilot, Woodard & Curran has 700 users deployed with Arkadin Total Connect for Office 365.“We wanted to make the move to Skype for Business but needed a partner who could offer a cloud solution rather than an on premise deployment,” says Kenneth Danila, Director, Information Systems at Woodward & Curran. “ROI Communications and Arkadin impressed us with their service capabilities and delivered on their promise of a seamless deployment.”For information about Arkadin & ROI Communications: http://response.arkadin.com/roi
