York Telecom Increases Federal Offerings By Adding PeopleCube to GSA Contract
York Telecom and PeopleCube have entered into a strategic partnership to provide the Federal Government with a contract vehicle to purchase PeopleCube's Resource Scheduler software. PeopleCube has been added to York Telecom's General Services Administration (GSA) schedule GS-35F-0493K. This will provide more than 100 Federal agencies and organizations the ability to purchase the software through a streamlined procurement vehicle. The benefits to the government will be endless. This software solution will effectively allow agencies to conserve energy, reduce energy costs, lower their carbon footprint and maximize utilization of shared resources and assets.
York Telecom has successfully been providing video solutions for the Federal Government for over 20 years and views this partnership as an extension of the quality service that they currently afford to numerous government agencies. "The combination of Resource Scheduler and York Telecom's Managed Collaboration Services will allow clients to proactively manage and schedule all of their meeting technology resources, such as audio and video conferencing, meeting support, and portable AV technology," said Ken Scaturro, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development at York Telecom, as he elaborated on the benefits of this partnership. End-users will find this fully integrated scheduling experience efficient and easy to use. Technology Managers will be attracted to the rich reporting and administrative tools; while the Finance team will be thrilled by the increased ROI on meeting technology assets.
The integration of Resource Scheduler creates an affordable energy management solution for government institutions and enterprises that manage multiple, geographically dispersed facilities as well as single-location organizations. Resource Scheduler is a web-based workspace, resource, and energy management solution that allows users to quickly and easily schedule shared resources and energy consumption with just a few clicks. "Given the rising social and economic pressures to go green, energy conservation is no longer a choice for organizations but rather a mandate," said PeopleCube president and CEO John T. Anderson. "Because the cost of energy continues to rise, managing energy consumption to reduce costs is a necessity."
