Evogh Inc. acquired by eZuce Inc,
eZuce adds cloud-ready video and web collaboration to its open unified communications software platform to enable “communications anywhere”
“ANDOVER, MA – (October 31, 2014)–-eZuce Inc., a provider of open telephony and unified communications (UC) solutions to enterprises and service providers worldwide, today announced that it has acquired Evogh, the provider of SeeVogh, a cloud-ready video and web collaboration solution. This acquisition extends its open, software-based UC solutions with complimentary video and web collaboration capabilities, further communications-enabling enterprises to deploy multimodal communications across any system, application or mobile device.
“Enterprises today are looking to migrate from discrete, hardware-based communications systems to a new world of ‘communications everywhere,’ where applications and systems are communications-enabled with flexible and open cloud and software solutions,” said eZuce CEO Jerry Stabile. “The combination of eZuce and Evogh enables enterprises to integrate highly scalable communications and collaboration capabilities into their business processes to drive productivity and innovation.”
Philippe Galvez, former CEO of Evogh, will join the eZuce management team as Chief Technology Officer. Philippe brings more than 20 years of engineering, entrepreneurial, and senior executive leadership experience, and will work closely with the eZuce team on the company’s technology and solution strategy. Evogh has development, support, administrative and sales resources in Eastern Europe and in Pasadena, California. These employees and contractors will continue operations as usual and will be integrated into the eZuce team over the coming months.
“Videoconferencing by itself is helpful, but where it gets interesting is when you can bend it to fit your needs. That is why we used SeeVogh’s APIs to integrate it with the RIT Global Collaboration Grid project,” said Gurcharan S. Khanna, founding director of the interactive collaboration environments Lab at Rochester Institute of Technology.
SeeVogh has provided HD video collaboration services to the high-energy physics community since its inception in 2006 to tens of thousands of researchers and experiments worldwide. SeeVogh has the largest user-base for cloud-based video collaboration among universities and research institutions.
Over the past five years eZuce have demonstrated an ability to deliver unified communications solutions and support that scale from small businesses to the largest of enterprises. Its openUC™ suite of solutions provides comprehensive support for all enterprise communications requirements in a single and highly scalable software platform. The introduction of SeeVogh will signal eZuce’s entry into the Software-as-a-Service delivery model and enable its partners, carriers and MSPs to build a new cloud delivered offering as a means of growing their businesses. “The Evogh acquisition represents the next step in our evolution as we seek to provide enterprises and partners with the solutions they need as they move from the old world of hardware-based PBXes and UC solutions, to today’s modern software-defined communications infrastructure,” Stabile said.
