Cloud tools will be aimed at start-ups and smaller companies.
Virgin Media Business has launched its first cloud based tools which are being aimed at start-ups and smaller companies.
The cloud-based tools will include instant messaging, web conferencing and IP voice which will help to allow employees and partners to collaborate.
The company’s system, Multi-Tenant Lync, can be scaled up or down each month in order to match the requirements of business – providing more flexibility for smaller companies.
Mike Smith, Director of SoHo/SME at Virgin Media Business, said: "Small businesses are a driving force for our economy but without the right connectivity and tools in place they are not always able to realise their potential."
"We’re committed to supporting the growth of small businesses up and down the country. Through this solution, we are offering them a simple, flexible solution so they can better communicate and challenge their biggest competitors."
The product is based upon Microsoft Lync and comes as a result of Virgin Media Business’s partnership with Outsourcery.
Piers Linney, CEO of Outsourcery, said: "Multi-Tenant Lync is a great example of different technologies working together to help users share and communicate with each other."
"Our Cloud service will underpin this crucial development for smaller businesses and we are delighted to partner with Virgin Media Business to develop such a tailored solution for their SME customers."
The cloud service is aimed at addressing the challenges faced by companies with up to 250 employees, such as changing staff numbers and limited IT budgets.
