HOLMDEL, N.J., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonage (NYSE: VG), a leading provider of cloud communications for business, will expand upon its vision for the future of business communications through multiple speaking engagements at Enterprise Connect 2017. Vonage was also named a finalist for the Best of Enterprise Connect Award for the Nexmo Voice API. Enterprise Connect takes place March 27-30 at the Gaylord Palms Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
Vonage CEO Alan Masarek will participate in a general session panel entitled "What Role (If Any) Should Cloud Communications Play in Your Enterprise?", which will address the benefits of -- and differences between -- cloud communications and cloud services, and the impact of each for enterprise businesses in the future.
"The evolving needs of today's businesses demand the ability for employees to stay seamlessly connected to each other, the customers they serve, and the applications they use every day on any device, no matter where or how they choose to work," said Mr. Masarek. "To meet these growing needs, the future of cloud communications will not only include solutions for fully integrated, end-to-end business communications, but also the ability to engage with customers in new and more meaningful ways, empowering businesses to strategically compete in their industries.
"Not only does the cloud allow businesses to increase productivity, mobility and scalability, but it also enables them to provide their customers with personalized, contextual and exceptional experience, service and support, at every touchpoint, every time."
