TeleWare (News - Alert) has enhanced its Instant Conferencing solution to allow users to initiate calls instantly and otherwise allow for greater simplification.
This solution can support conferencing with up to 40 participants. It allows for a range of security settings. And its flexible design enables various functions to be removed for those customers that want more simplified solutions.
“At TeleWare we understand that time is valuable and that staff want to be as productive as possible,” said Danny Hensby, head of product management at TeleWare. “Conference calls and meetings are a big part of working life, so providing technical solutions that launch quickly and work seamlessly is essential. There has always been a certain amount of ceremony around arranging a conference call. With Instant Conferencing, users can simply dial a number and be talking within seconds, removing all the ritual of entering passwords, recording names and wading through different options.”
This latest version of Instant Conferencing enables calls to take place with or without a designated chairperson. Calls without a leader begin when the first person joins the call and end when the last one leaves it. Calls without a chairperson can be recorded with a touch of a button. And when participants enter a call there’s no interruption.
TeleWare says it’s also integrating its reporting and analysis products into the Instant Conferencing solution. And the company provides its customers with global access numbers so they can host conferences to 165 countries.
Simplification is a key trend in conferencing today.
In another recent announcement illustrating this trend, BlueJeans Network earlier this month introduced a solution simply known as Huddle. This cloud-based video solution is for use in huddle rooms and makes meetings quick and easy to initiate, recognizing users when they walk into the room.
“Huddle was designed from the ground up to remove all obstacles to live video adoption while adding features that help facilitate productivity,” said Krish Ramakrishnan, CEO of BlueJeans Network. “The result is a system that essentially gives every employee his or her own personal assistant for each meeting and takes away the video tax.”
