Logitech partners with Versatech Int’l to expand market reach

Logitech, a Swiss producer of IT peripherals, partnered with local IT distribution firm Versatech International to expand its market reach and offers organizations with video conferencing solutions that include professional conference cameras, webcams, and accessories for audio and video conferencing.

Philippe Depallens, general manager of Personal Collaboration at Logitech, says they are now establishing category of products designed for the personal workspace that provide a complete collaboration experience. He cited that they have tackled small, medium and large meeting rooms with high-quality room solutions.

“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,” said Depallens. 

 Driven by the market’s growing demand for professional business conferencing solutions, Logitech announced Versatech as its official distributor for video collaboration solutions to address the needs of enterprises. Apart from ensuring their offerings to make a positive impact to their clients’ business, the collaboration also aims to streamline the delivery services for personal workspace and industries such as corporate, government, education, entertainment, broadcast, hospitality, and BPO sectors. 

“The 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 Stephen Yu, executive vice president at Versatech International. “Customer success through a partnership is what defines Versatech International.”

Yu noted that 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 cloud, social, and IoT technologies. “Together, we have an opportunity to fundamentally change how people work,” Yu said.

Meanwhile, Logitech has announced the release of two new professional audio conferencing accessories, the ‘Swytch’ cable link and the ‘Zone Wired’ headset, which enhance video conferencing experience for office or work from home environments.

The Swytch is a one-cable link that enables your laptop to connect to a room’s AV equipment and run any video meeting or webinar. On the other hand, the Zone Wired headset is 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 Scott Wharton, vice president and general manager at Logitech Video Collaboration. 

Wharton notes that for 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.”
