Avaya runs ‘Beat the Heat’ campaign


Avaya, introduced an innovative campaign, “Beat the Heat” to enable businesses in the UAE, effortlessly engage and sustain their productivity levels during this hot summer season by throwing open its cloud-based video conferencing solution to any business in the Emirates.

At no charge, businesses can subscribe to Avaya Scopia, to host multi-party video conferencing, file-sharing and collaborative viewing and editing. With seamless access across desktop and mobile, business owners and employees of any company of any size can replace face to face meetings with Avaya Scopia, irrespective of location, device, and operating system.

Users of Avaya Scopia can connect using mobile devices, desktop or video conferencing room system and easily add additional users as requirements grow.

Participants can connect with associates face-to-face to collaborate, review presentations or discuss important documents, in real-time. Participants joining late can even review previously-shared information without interrupting the rest of the group.

In places where bandwidth is a challenge, the Avaya Scopia advanced audio and video processing delivers each participant a bandwidth-efficient data stream, enabling everyone to see all meeting participants simultaneously, while leaders have full meeting control.
