PanTerra Networks recently announced that it has been listed in the "Visionaries" quadrant of Gartner’s North America 2012 Unified Communications –as- a -Service (UCaaS) Magic Quadrant.


In a statement, Arthur Chang, president and CEO of PanTerra Networks, said that, "We consider our positioning in the 'Visionary' quadrant by Gartner to be validation of our vision to improve how companies conduct business by delivering the most innovative and comprehensive suite of unified cloud-based IT services. WorldSmart dramatically improves responsiveness, increases productivity, and enhances globalization efficiencies, while reducing infrastructure costs, enabling businesses to be more competitive. We continue to innovate with services that businesses need, while our vision, as outlined in our product roadmap, is to remain on the forefront of technology enhancements.

Adding, “With the launch of ConnectMe(SM) HD, which unifies HD video, multiple simultaneous deskshares and HD audio conferencing through a secure client-less universal browser experience, PanTerra has delivered a revolutionary multi-media rich way for businesses to communicate with their customers, prospects, co-workers, and partners."

PanTerra Networks has been providing mid-market enterprises (MME) with cloud-based fully managed and self-managed unified IT service solutions that help in enhancing productivity and help clients develop an elastic and flexible IT infrastructure. The company's WorldSmart service has been designed to offer unified communications, storage and mobility services. The solution is delivered from the cloud via a complete browser-based UC client, which effectively eliminates the need for any premises-deployed hardware or software infrastructure.

Gartner analysts, Daniel O'Connell and Bern Elliot wrote in the Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications –as- a -Service, North America report , "Gartner analysts evaluate UCaaS service providers based on the breadth, quality and overall maturity of their applications, processes, tools and procedures that enhance individual, group and enterprise communications. Ultimately, UCaaS providers are judged on their ability and success in capitalizing on their vision."

WorldSmart not only offers clients with lower operating costs, but also mitigates capital expense while driving productivity for employees. Enterprises can opt to either self-manage WorldSmart services or opt for the services to be fully managed by PanTerra Networks via its SentraCloud solution.
