“The immediate value organizations see in this product, coupled with the fact that it is built on intelligent tech, makes it a great option for customers seeking a mobile-first, app-based offering for workplace collaboration,” he said. “Workplace brings a new and exciting brand and product to our partners.”
“As the global work landscape continues to change and the demand for mobile collaboration and connected teams continues, we’re thrilled to partner with a forward-thinking company like SYNNEX. We know that SYNNEX shares our ideals of pushing the envelope of workplace innovation and we’re looking forward to working together,” said Geoff Perfect, Director Online and Channel, Workplace by Facebook.
