Whitlock, a video collaboration company, today announced that the company is a leader in worldwide Surface Hub sales.
“We’ve made a strong commitment to the Microsoft platform over the past few years, and Surface Hub has been a great success story with our customers,” explains John Bailey, Whitlock VP of Technology. “We are thrilled with our team’s tremendous success in delivering devices, specialized services, training and support to hundreds of our enterprise customers.”
“Surface is proud to have a thriving partner ecosystem that helps us better offer Surface Hub to customers worldwide,” said Ryan Gavin, general manager, Surface Marketing. “Whitlock was an early launch partner for Surface Hub and has successfully landed impressive sales figures for 2016. We’re excited to see their success and continued momentum.”
John “Jack” Steinhauer, Whitlock’s EVP of global sales added: “Our strength in understanding video collaboration environments and new workspace trends enabled us to drive more customer conversations around Surface Hub, and Surface Studio as well.” We are big fans of one platform and enterprise standards; the Microsoft Surface story resonates for us and our enterprise customers.”
Whitlock is a Microsoft Gold Communications Partner, demonstrating the highest level of expertise in implementing Microsoft UC solutions, including Microsoft Surface Devices, Skype for Business and Office 365. Company experts can also advise on technology roadmaps, cloud solutions and network readiness for new video or UC implementations.
John Bailey continued: “Customers are demanding not only one-touch collaboration, but one platform to bring their teaming and communication experiences to an entire new level.” Windows 10 on Surface Hub, with built-in Skype for Business, new collaboration apps and powerful analytics from Power BI, is an unbeatable solution. It removes silos and gets people from anywhere in the world collaborating together seamlessly.”
Whitlock is also a founding member of the Global Presence Alliance (GPA), a team of companies delivering solutions jointly around the world for video and unified collaboration. Together, Whitlock and GPA members have sold hundreds of Surface Hubs since its launch last year.
