Hot on the heels of SCC’s acquisition of Visavvi and four years on from the merger of SCC and avsnet, the relaunch of SCC AVS as SCC Collaboration heralds the next phase of growth, as SCC looks to capitalise on a key strategic part of its business that has doubled in size since 2020.
Here’s all you need to know about SCC Collaboration.
Why we rebranded?
The recent acquisition of Visavvi in addition to two years of significant organic growth has added breadth to SCC’s capability in the traditional AV market and enabled a larger focus on growth areas, such as digital workplace solutions accelerated by new hybrid
The pace of change in the UC market means we are constantly evolving – and as specialists across the whole collaboration spectrum, we wanted our name to better represent all that we do, in addition to just AV services, which remains a key component in every solution we deliver.
SCC Collaboration also denotes how we work with customers and partners – collaboratively – taking a consultative led approach to understanding challenges and delivering personalised solutions.
What collaboration means to SCC.
There are two ways we approach collaboration in partnership with our customers.
Firstly, we look at how an organisation collaborate internally and how efficiently teams work together, which is more challenging than ever with the ongoing proliferation of hybrid working and within businesses that rely on remote teams. Our solutions prioritise inclusion, underpinned by collaboration.
We then look at how an organisation collaborates externally, with customers, partners, and the public, to get a holistic understanding of the business and how we can shape a collaboration solution to align with long-term strategic objectives.
Within these solutions, we’ll often install screens on walls and the latest AV hardware, but the real value in what we deliver is in the initial consultancy and the trusted relationships we invest in building with our customers.
What else we are changing.
SCC Collaboration is more than just a change of name. SCC has a huge breadth of capability and collaboration is one part of it. We recognise the importance of ensuring we operate as one team and collaborate in the same way we advise our customers.
In developing SCC Collaboration, we’ve considered how best we work together to ensure each component of the broader SCC business is complimentary, optimising the experience both internally for our colleagues and externally for our customers.
We are committed to setting the example of great teamwork, including people and technology, to demonstrate the benefits of our solutions to our customers and evidence how collaboration can contribute to growth and success.
Why you should talk to SCC Collaboration.
Events in the past two years have changed how businesses approach cloud computing and accelerated digital transformation – often out of necessity and underpinned by little to no strategy.
This has presented organisations with a huge opportunity to review legacy infrastructure and start to build a communications strategy around investments in tools such as Microsoft Teams, to embrace hybrid working, modernise, and mitigate any future risk.
We’re also fast approaching 2025, when BT will shut off their ISDN and PSTN services completely. Neither of these technologies are capable of delivering the volume or quality of voice data needed in this increasingly digital world. Voice calls in the future will be made over the internet, which presents another opportunity to act now and get ahead of the curve.
