This afternoon VBrick announced that we have been selected as one of the four finalists for Microsoft’s Public Sector, Partner of the Year. This is the second year in a row that VBrick has been honored by Microsoft for our integration with Microsoft Lync. This year’s recognition is especially gratifying as we were competing with nearly 3,000 entrants and were the only N. American partner recognized in our category.
“It is a tremendous honor for VBrick to be recognized by Microsoft. Considering the talent and scope of the Microsoft Partner Community, being named one of four finalists is an obvious point of pride for our entire team. We believe this honor points to the increasing importance of live streaming video as an essential element of a complete Unified Communications deployment. Customers are deploying VBrick streaming video with Microsoft Lync to simplify access to live meeting and events, delivering expanded and more effective communications with internal personnel, customers and partners,” said Doug Howard, CEO of VBrick Systems. “Microsoft has been incredibly supportive of our development and marketing efforts. We look forward to delivering additional IP video-enabled collaboration solutions to both the public and private sectors.”
