Brook-Pro Selects Magor's Aerus Service Delivery Platform to Launch Innovative Service Offerings for Financial Services and Higher Education
OTTAWA, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Magor (TSX-V:MCC) today announced that after an extensive evaluation of the solutions available in the market, New York-based Brook-Pro has selected Magor's Aerus Service Delivery Platform (SDP) to support the delivery of an innovative new line of video-enabled service offerings for the financial services and higher education market segments.
The software-based Aerus SDP has been designed with the flexibility to allow service providers to develop their own solutions on top of the platform to deliver completely unique video-enabled offerings for their target vertical markets. The visual collaboration capabilities enabled by the Aerus SDP include:
- Concurrent sharing of multi-sourced collaborative media, including desktop screens, iPad screens, static and interactive whiteboards, wearable camera views, live and recorded video, photos and any other content that may be useful
- Real-time adaptability of media-stream quality via scalable video coding
- Native interoperability with SIP, H.323, Microsoft Lync and WebRTC-enabled browsers
"Based on our past experience with enterprise video conferencing solutions, we knew that in searching for a video technology partner, we did not want a software Multipoint Control Unit (MCU) platform, nor a closed video conferencing platform that created yet another island of technology and did not work well with other solutions," said Paul Toldalagi, CEO of Brook-Pro. "What we needed was a video enablement service platform that provided us with differentiation of interoperability and collaboration capabilities in the competitive enterprise video conferencing market, while providing us with the flexibility to develop our own solutions with the integration of our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions and Learning Management Systems (LMS) to create competitive offerings for our target markets."
Toldalagi continued, "Magor's Cloud-based Aerus was the obvious choice for us. With a very powerful baseline set of visual collaboration capabilities for users, a flexible API integration interface and a robust service management capability, the Aerus SDP enables us complete flexibility to create and manage our own service offerings."
"Brook-Pro holds valuable insight into the collaboration and productivity challenges faced by many industries, and they are using the Aerus SDP to create differentiated cloud-based offerings to address these challenges, beginning with financial services and higher education," said Ken Davison, Chief Marketing Officer of Magor. "With Brook-Pro's experienced team and their innovative approaches to CRM and LMS in a market that is growing aggressively, we look forward to the mutual success ahead with this strategic partnership and the expansion of our presence into the US market. "
Toldalagi said, "We've been working collaboratively with our customers, and have been receiving great feedback in advance of the commercial launch of our Aerus-enabled solutions, which focuses on bringing together critical information and people together at the right time in ways that were cumbersome or impossible in the past. This is what we mean by 'reinventing teamwork', because it's long overdue, and the productivity benefits are significant."
