Everything You Need to Know about Nicolas
Most recently, Nicolas was part of the team that developed Arkadin’s new Cisco Webex Calling Solution which dazzled at UC EXPO 2019, the most important Unified Communications and Collaboration Event in Europe. This new offer provides customers with global PSTN telephony using Cisco’s BroadCloud PBX technology under the Webex brand.
Interviewed at UC EXPO, Nicolas said, “We have connected our global voice network to Webex calling which is the brand-new cloud PBX solution from Cisco, so we continue our journey, we complete our entire portfolio. You know we’ve been a 15-year partner of Cisco Webex for meetings, but now we are able to deliver telephony in the cloud for our customers so it’s a big day for us, it’s a big achievement!”
Nicolas is passionate about helping organizations access better agility and flexibility for their environments. He’s enthusiastic when he talks about how he and his team create valuable new offers by combining Arkadin’s and Cisco’s assets, saying, “It’s a fantastic job because you are at the middle of everything: you have to deal with engineering, you have to deal with legal, you have to deal with sales, business, marketing, because it’s really like creating a movie, it’s like being an executive producer!”
Based in Montpellier, Nicolas joined Arkadin in July 2015. He holds a master’s degree in video broadcasting, multimedia, and distance learning systems from Paris II University.
