Ascentae signs partnership with communications solutions innovator Vpod


Surrey, UK, 30th November 2017 - Leading creative workplace solutions provider, Ascentae, has added the Vgreet video communications solution to its rapidly expanding portfolio following a new exclusive agreement with Vpod. The partnership will see Ascentae offer the unique video assistant tool to the UK market through its dedicated network of resellers.

Vpod, whose company name is taken from its state of the art technology, is a complete communications solution incorporating hardware, software and content that works on any internet-enabled device. The seamless video communications tool is at the forefront of a new kind of customer interaction for businesses in sectors such as healthcare, banking and retail.

Vgreet is one of the company’s innovative physical products that provides the all-important customer touchpoint. The flexible communications solution enables businesses to centralise their resource by providing a live person without the need to have them physically present, to improve customer service and save costs. Whatever the business requirement, Vgreet can be used across a range of applications such as receptionist, healthcare hub, building security system, sales assistant, digital signage, product showcase or concierge.

In functionality and appearance, Vgreet is similar to a giant smartphone with intuitive touch-screen technology that will be immediately familiar to anyone who owns a smart device. The solution incorporates fully customisable functions that are easily adapted to reflect each organisation’s brand identity and optional features can be chosen according to the customers’ business needs, such as image and data capture, motion detection, visitor badge printing and contactless payment options.

Sam Farrant, managing director, Vpod said: “We are excited to appoint Ascentae as exclusive distributor for Vgreet. We chose Ascentae due to the team’s wealth of industry experience and their approach to workplace solutions. Their knowledge of both the UK market and this type of technology means they understand that Vgreet is a solution that solves business problems and not just a black box.”

The Vpod team is a collaboration of dedicated and driven individuals whose products are a result of their combined expertise in product design, innovation, technology, software, content, digital services, manufacturing, creativity, customer focus and project management, skills that have all been acquired working with businesses globally.

Jon Knight, commercial director, Ascentae: “We are delighted with this new partnership, Vgreet really reflects Vpod’s unrivalled level of knowledge in this space. Vgreet is an ideal fit within our portfolio and what we are looking to achieve at Ascentae. Our focus is not solely on the products and introducing technology for the sake of it, it is about providing solutions based on a company’s business needs to help them transform how they work, communicate and collaborate. That is precisely what Vgreet does.”

The flexibility offered by Vgreet means it can be used for a variety of business purposes from allowing visitors secure access to an organisation’s premises or showcasing products in-store, to providing assistance and searchable directories of professionals in large businesses.
