Genband Partners with SAP
Genband, a developer of real-time communications software, signed a global reseller agreement with SAP. SAP will resell Genband's communications platform-as-a-service (PaaS), Kandy, as the SAP Real-Time Communicator Web application by Genband.
With Genband's advanced embedded communications capabilities, SAP Real-Time Communicator will help companies improve workflows and communications through real-time chat, videoconferencing, and collaboration tools.
SAP Real-Time Communicator supports other SAP solutions for customer engagement by enabling simpler collaboration capabilities using embedded communications within other business applications for presence, instant messaging, and voice and video chat/conference. SAP Real-Time Communicator is integrated natively into SAP Cloud for Customer, and can be integrated with the SAP hybris Commerce solution, to help bring new communications capabilities to SAP customers globally.
"As the world's leading provider of enterprise software and services, SAP is the ideal partner to collaborate with. Integrating our real-time communications capabilities within its solutions for customer engagement aims to create powerful, unique customer experiences," said Paul Pluschkell, executive vice president of Strategy and cloud services at Genband, in a statement. "SAP Real-Time Communicator allows SAP to enhance its customer engagement model and continue to deliver solutions that empower its customers to work smarter and more efficiently."
"By embedding digital communications in SAP Cloud for Customer, we are able to offer our customers dramatic improvements in productivity to help make the experience richer, more contextual and highly efficient for managing vital relationships," said Nayaki Nayyar, senior vice president of cloud for customer engagement at SAP, in a statement. "We found Genband's platform to be an advanced market offering that was uniquely positioned to help us launch new capabilities quickly across our applications. This, combined with Genband's proven technology performance leadership, global presence and comprehensive product portfolio, all factored into our decision to select this platform."
