“The addition of Qumu’s platform to our collaboration portfolio offers all of Genesis clients access to the most flexible, secure and advanced content creation and management technology available,” said Gabriel Gely, Executive Vice President of Genesis Integration. “The accelerated pace of content consumption our enterprise clients are experiencing requires us to find creative solutions to tackle the challenges of both network limitations and user expectations. Together with Qumu, we can now provide a complete, robust solution.”
“Whitlock is excited to reinvigorate our 16-year partnership with Qumu. As the dominant platform and service provider for hybrid media delivery to the enterprise, Qumu is a perfect fit in our global solutions ecosystem,” said Terrell Coble, Director of UC Strategy and Global Innovation.
