LOS ANGELES, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

    -- Kandy Communicator delivers a geolocation-enabled, easy-to-use
                              interface 

GENBAND(TM) (http://www.genband.com/), a leading provider of real-time 
communications solutions today announced that Converge Distribution Limited 
(CDL) (https://converge-distribution.com/ ) has joined its Kandy Business 
Solutions (https://www.kandy.io/kandy-for/enterprise-solutions ) (branded as 
Nuvia (https://www.nuviacloud.com/) in APAC) reseller ecosystem, making 
advanced UC solutions including Cloud PBX, Mobility and Collaboration services 
more broadly available throughout New Zealand. 

The solution also includes the inaugural deployment of the Kandy Communicator, 
an intuitive, easy-to-use mobile interface built on Kandy (http://kandy.io/) 
which marries communications Platform as a Service (cPaaS), and Unified 
Communications as a Service (uCaaS) capabilities for the first time. Small 
businesses on the go can leverage the Kandy Communicator's location-based 
functionality to track employees' location on a map if enabled by the employee, 
who retains full control over their visibility in accordance with privacy 
requirements. 

"We're focused on supporting local resellers that supply managed services 
models, and we turned to GENBAND once again to ensure that we're providing them 
the best offer on the market," said Ali Ebrahim, Director, Sales & Technology, 
Converge Distribution Limited. "Nuvia offers the business-critical capabilities 
enterprises crave, coupled with a simple and effective cloud delivery 
mechanism, while Kandy Communicator offers consumer app-like ease of use."  

The agreement enables end-users to cost-effectively replace their on-prem PBXs 
with a suite of market-read, easy-to-install cloud UC services, gaining 
enhanced productivity via integrated collaboration and mobility features. The 
Kandy cloud also offers communication enablement of existing services with 
Kandy Wrappers, pre-packaged lightweight software applications that quickly and 
easily embed communications within workflows. 

"Converge Distribution Limited is a long-term partner for us going back to 
their inception," said David O'Connor, Senior Vice President APAC Sales for 
GENBAND. "We're pleased to provide them with the tools and solutions to help 
expand their business horizons with the next-generation of UC services, and 
look forward to having Mr. Ebrahim participate in one of our Perspectives17 
(http://perspectives17.com/ ) breakout sessions later this week." 

Built on the carrier-class elements that support millions of IP lines and 
billions of minutes of use at GENBAND customers worldwide, the Kandy Business 
Solutions infrastructure is designed for 99.999% up-time; all of the elements 
are redundant and all of the infrastructure is deployed in geographically 
redundant data-centers and is designed to support organizations of all sizes,
