The last decade has seen the unified communications and collaboration (UCC) market evolve, transforming the way businesses communicate. Coupled to the advent of 5G technology, the unified communications (UC) market is expected to expand at a faster pace. Acknowledging this growth trajectory, local UC provider, BuzzBox, has announced a collaboration with Kathea, a leading value-added distributor of voice and video. 

Jini Guru co-founder and developer of BuzzBox, Jason Penton, says that the partnership brings an all-encompassing UC solution to the local market, backed by concrete communications technology skills: “The solution will address all business, functional and device requirements, ensuring that the necessary hardware required is also addressed. Kathea is a gold certified partner in the Buzzbox technology and provides a wholistic solution that caters for all aspects of the communication in the fields of both business and personal use.”

As a leading 100% hosted unified communications provider, BuzzBox enables users to set up the functional requirements in a simple “drag and drop” process at no cost. This installation can be performed by anyone who understands call flow requirements.

Penton says that as access to good and affordable communications continue grow, UC is predicted to grow in popularity: “Built from the ground up with no legacy to contend with, Buzzbox can embrace fully the power of artificial intelligence and cloud computing. We look forward to participating, together with Kathea, in the growth and evolution of UC in South Africa.”
