A new door opens for the Philippines pro audio and video community as Versatech International becomes an official distributor of Logitech for its video and conferencing room solutions. As the companies integrate, this year also welcomes the release of additional models for Logitech’s video collaboration line up that include professional conference cameras, webcams, and accessories for audio and video conferencing.
“We’ve tackled small, medium, and large meeting rooms with high-quality room solutions,” said Mr. Philippe Depallens, General Manager of Personal Collaboration at Logitech. “Now, we’re establishing a category of products designed for the personal workspace that provides a complete personal collaboration experience, whether that’s with audio or webcams. As video collaboration continues to grow, our goal is to provide solutions that are simple to use so you can perform your best no matter where you take your meetings and calls.”
The brand partnership aims to power up the market’s growing demand for professional business conferencing solutions and to streamline its delivery services for personal workspace and industries such as corporate, government, education, entertainment, broadcast, hospitality, and BPO sectors. Though Versatech has widened its brand portfolio with Logitech, it’s been a B2B ICT distributor for over 40 years with its roots from Lamco International so, they’re familiar when it comes to partnering up with prestigious and international brands.
“This partnership with Logitech is a great opportunity to build value for our customers and I am anticipating a positive reception as we introduce their state-of-the-art collaboration systems that will certainly enhance our customers’ productivity”, said Mr. Stephen Yu, Executive Vice President of Versatech International. “Customer success through a partnership is what defines Versatech International. Bringing together the world’s premier brands in unified communication and collaboration creates a multitude of possibilities to deliver more value to our customers. Logitech is at the forefront of solutions that address the need for remote working environments by developing systems that enable businesses to seamlessly connect with their customers through the cloud, social, and IoT technologies. Together, we have an opportunity to fundamentally change how people work”.
To enhance people’s experiences on video conferencing platforms for office or work from home environments, Logitech has designed the ‘Swytch’, a one-cable link that enables your laptop to connect to a room’s AV equipment and run any video meeting or webinar, and the ‘Zone Wired Headset’, a USB headset for busy workspaces with premium audio drivers and advanced noise-canceling mic technology.
“Most room solutions are great and have made strides in becoming easier to use, but it’s often difficult to join meetings with any video service you want,” said Mr. Scott Wharton, Vice President and General Manager of Logitech Video Collaboration. “For a video to become ubiquitous, joining video calls with different platforms needs to become as easy as making a telephone call. With Swytch, we’re taking it a step beyond ‘making every room a meeting room’ and enabling a native experience in conference rooms that anyone can use and enjoy.”
As video conferences become an essential part of everyday business operation and a new normal in 2020, Versatech International successfully held consecutive ‘Logitech Video Collaboration Conference’ webinars on September 11, 2020, via Microsoft Teams. Hosted by Versatech’s Vice President of Marketing, Ms. Jessa Camille Dasas, 1-hour online sessions ran throughout the day and discussed building up business resilience during Covid-19 with their resellers and end-users. Attendees also got the chance to pick the brains of Versatech’s Marketing team and Logitech principals while they learned about new and up-and-coming technology trends.
