AnyMeeting joins Comcast's Upware marketplace
Oct 08, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Comcast Business, a unit of Comcast Cable, has announced that AnyMeeting, Inc., a provider of web conferencing and webinar services for small business, has joined Comcast's Upware marketplace.
Upware is a suite of cloud-based business solutions that can be purchased and accessed on-demand through Comcast's integrated web portal.
The availability on Comcast's Upware marks the first time that AnyMeeting's full-featured web conferencing solution is available 'as-a-service' by a telecommunications channel partner, marking an important milestone in its growth strategy. The companies will work together to offer AnyMeeting, which addresses a complete range of small business needs including six-way video conferencing, VoIP audio conferencing, screen sharing, presentation sharing, recording and mobile access.
AnyMeeting brings several features to Comcast cloud customers that it has learned are uniquely important to small businesses, such as personalized meeting URLs, social media integration, personal profile pages and PayPal integration to monetize meetings. It's also priced for small business, at less than half the cost of most enterprise solutions.
"Maintaining a productive workplace is not easy for SMB owners because their business pulls them in so many different directions," said Kevin O'Toole, senior vice president/general manager, New Business Solutions at Comcast Business. "Comcast is in a unique position to help by offering cloud-based solutions like AnyMeeting, through the Upware marketplace, that have been properly vetted and meet our high standards. We do all of the research and evaluation on the front end so entrepreneurs don't have to."
Upware, which was launched in February 2013, simplifies application management with the convenience of a single sign-on, making access fast and easy for individual users. In addition, business owners can quickly add or remove employees from the system as their business needs change. Plus, users have the simplicity of one number to call for support, management and troubleshooting for everything associated with their Comcast Business Internet service including the Upware marketplace and the software applications themselves.
"We are very excited to work with a major channel partner like Comcast," said Costin Tuculescu, CEO and founder of AnyMeeting. "We're seeing small businesses embrace cloud services like ours at an accelerating pace, and believe Comcast and the Upware marketplace will play a key role in further driving this trend."
