Faritec takes on RoundTable reseller role

by Stuart Wilson, Saturday 7 February 2009

South African-quoted IT solutions and service outfit Faritec has become a Microsoft RoundTable reseller. Faritec, a Microsoft gold partner, manages more than US$31m in Microsoft software licensing agreements for many of South Africa’s leading corporations and government bodies. The new agreement boosts Faritec’s collaboration and conferencing device offering.

Microsoft RoundTable is an advanced collaboration and conferencing device that provides participants with an engaging and remote meeting experience. Used with Microsoft office communications server 2007 or the 2007 version of Microsoft office live meeting, RoundTable provides a 360-degree view of the conference room, high-quality audio, and video that tracks the flow of conversation among multiple speakers.

Dave McMurdo, business unit manager of Faritec’s Microsoft division, said: “We have identified an escalating demand for a conferencing device, which is affordable, practical and easy to use. Online meetings are the way of the future, and are set to dramatically impact corporate travel, delivering unprecedented cost savings and enhancing productivity.”

“RoundTable promises to reduce travel spend by facilitating boardroom-type meetings with multiple participants on the office communications server platform. Two RoundTables can be bought for the price of one business-class air ticket, digitally linking and facilitating communications between two meeting rooms full of people,” McMurdo added.

“This solution enables colleagues, customers and partners in different locations to interact as if they were in the same room, making meetings more collaborative and engaging,” McMurdo continued. “The remote attendees can use a RoundTable device or a standard Web cam to include their image in the meeting. If not, they can dial in from any phone and their voice will be added to the session.”

As a Microsoft gold certified partner, Faritec holds seven of the key Microsoft competencies: licensing solutions; unified communications; data management solutions; advanced infrastructure; network infrastructure; security solutions; and information worker. Faritec is also offering a 10% discount on RoundTable orders until the end of February 2009.
