Qvest Media to represent Signiant in the Middle East
Qvest Media, Dubai-based distribution and system integration company, and Signiant, a market leader in intelligent file movement software for media, have signed a deal whereby Qvest Media will represent Signiant in the region. In a region where bandwidth can be extremely costly, Signiant’s accelerated solutions can help organisations move large files securely and without the need to increase bandwidth, a critical factor in improving workflow efficiencies.
“The Middle East is a burgeoning market for content creation, so there is strong demand for solutions such as those from Signiant,” says Thomas Müller, general manager at Qvest Media. “We are committed to providing our customers with the industry’s top solutions, and then going beyond that task by helping them to implement file-based workflows that expand their business opportunities. Signiant’s solutions complement our world-class product offerings, and we are pleased to have secured the company as a partner.”
Qvest Media will offer the full line of Signiant’s media file transfer solutions, including the new Media Shuttle file transfer solution that provides an effective alternative to FTP or consumer-oriented file sharing approaches – without the administrative burden, file size constraints or security risks. Media Shuttle’s hybrid SaaS architecture lets users access fast file transfer capabilities through a simple interface delivered from the cloud, while maintaining the file cache within the secure control of their own network. A flexible subscription-based pricing model makes Media Shuttle the ideal solution for project-based initiatives or enterprises looking to scale on demand. The distribution portfolio will also include Managers+Agents, Signiant’s powerful workflow automation solution, and Media Exchange, a private cloud solution optimized for moving file-based media between internal and external users and systems.
“We could not feel more privileged to enter into this partnership with Qvest Media,” adds Joachim Bause, Signiant’s Managing Director of Central Europe and the Middle East. “Award winning and known for offering the world’s best IT and AV solutions for media applications and system integration, Qvest Media is a trusted reseller that will be instrumental in expanding Signiant’s presence in this key market.”
