The first third-party UC application to be independently certified for Cisco HCS
PLANO, Texas — April 20, 2017 — tekVizion today announced the first HCS certification for a partner application for Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solutions (HCS). Singlewire’s InformaCast emergency notification application is now fully certified and ready for Cisco HCS – a hosted UC cloud offering. With this certification, Cisco HCS partners can now deploy InformaCast on HCS with confidence and offer Emergency Notification-as-a-Service to their customers.
“Quickly reaching people during emergency situations has become increasingly critical to enterprises. It was important to certify InformaCast for Cisco HCS to enable HCS providers to offer emergency notification-as-a-Service to their customers,” said David Tucker, SVP of Business Development, Singlewire Software.
Singlewire’s InformaCast solution for mass notification includes cloud-based and mobile capabilities that enable an organization to send text, audio and images to mobile phones as well as on-premises devices, such as desk phones, IP and analog speakers, desktop PCs and digital signage.
tekVizion is the only independent lab to provide HCS certification for third-party Unified Communications (UC) applications. The program for Cisco ecosystem partners was designed to test, validate and certify the functional and non-functional elements of the Application Under Test (AUT) that are integrated into Cisco HCS. The certification emphasizes performance, scale and resiliency as leading factors for HCS applications.
“Our certification program gives HCS providers a baseline on which they can build upon to offer new services. This represents a significant savings of time, cost and resources for HCS providers,” said Raja Ati, VP of Product Management for Cloud and IoT Services, tekVizion.
