Forthright Technology Partners, Inc, a User Centric IT company, today announced their new partnership with Star2Star, a global leader in cloud-native communications, collaboration, and integration solutions for the enterprise. Forthright Technology Partners will integrate Star2Star’s technologies into Forthright’s managed service offerings to its clients.
Forthright now offers Connected Workspaces, powered by Star2Star, as part of their managed services portfolio. A Connected Workspace includes best-of-breed technologies such as Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), voice, and built-in collaboration tools which deliver a comprehensive desktop solution for on-premises and remote workers. In addition to the Connected Workspace platform, Forthright is bundling it with integrated PBX functionality, microapps, and other managed services. These capabilities are available in both Citrix and non Citrix environments.
“Delivering the Connected Workspace has been a heavy focus for Forthright over the last few years and Star2Star just gets it. We are excited about this partnership as Star2Star adds to Forthright’s Managed Service offerings fully integrated with Microsoft Teams, collaboration, Microapp, Telephony, and PBX functionality on any platform. Equally important, because it’s integrated with Office 365, the end user experience is seamless, which makes it easy for us to roll out and even easier for our clients to use with any Workspace,” said Steve Zoberg, Chief Operating Officer at Forthright.
The Connected Workspace platform was designed with user experience and flexibility in mind, making it ideal for the changing needs of the modern workforce. Forthright’s goal is to help their customers overcome new challenges with remote teams and collaboration by offering a comprehensive platform designed to bring all of a company’s mission-critical technologies together in a centralized workspace.
“Forthright prides itself on offering solutions that deliver exceptional end user experiences,” said Frank Merino, VP of Professional Services at Forthright.
“Forthright Technology Partners has a strong vision of the market, and understands the need for integrated solutions that are complementary to the core technologies they manage for clients. In addition, we are eager to tap their deep market experience to refine our product strategy and continue building innovative features for our Customers. We are excited about these new opportunities our partnership with Forthright will bring,” said Michelle Accardi, President and Chief Revenue Officer at Star2Star.
Star2Star will be featured in Forthright’s Solution Spotlight on Tuesday, July 27th at 2:00pm EST. Both companies will outline the connected workspace and Star2Star’s contribution to Forthright’s fully integrated managed service offering.
