Welcome to the latest edition of TMCnet’s Unified Communications Software Week in Review – where you’ll find a brief rundown of all the top stories related to UC from this past week.
UC Software provider Fidelus Technologies announced this week the full release of Provisioning Manager Express.
With the new offering, it’s possible to complete tasks like modifying and deleting users from Cisco (News - Alert) UC environment as well as standardize device management through the use of templates, and more.
In the beta phase, the company was able to test and tweak features and usability needs as well as gather valuable user feedback and measure potential business results.
“This release simplifies the process of adding, modifying, and deleting users from the Cisco Unified Communications (News - Alert) Manager environment. We do this through use of templates which are created through the initial administration process. Once these templates are created, the tasks of provisioning users can be handed off to a less experienced resource. In our beta program we've found companies have been able to hand it off to a receptionist or office assistant rather than a highly paid Cisco certified engineer. This has significant savings for an enterprise class firm, approx $75,000 annually for a firm making approx 100 changes per day,” an executive with Fidelus told TMCnet.
Also this week, VIPorbit announced a new app to help simplify communications for mobile professionals. Features include scheduling, automated activity tracking and easy, quick access to events and calendars.
Virtual meetings specialist PGi also announced this week iMeet 2.0, a cloud-based video meeting offering to help businesses of all sizes conduct meetings when they need.
“PGi created iMeet to reinvent the way people do meetings, with an experience that is refreshingly simple, enjoyable and unlike any other product on the market. We plan to continue to enhance the iMeet platform to accommodate more of our users' everyday business communications, from sales presentations, remote candidate interviews and video chats to board of directors meetings," said Boland T. Jones, PGi’s founder, chairman and CEO.
In the healthcare UC space, Vocera (News - Alert) announced new updates for its Secure Messaging app to include real-time syncing and enhanced integration so users can send messages from smartphones, web consoles and other 3rd party clinical systems.
Vocera Secure Messaging version 4.7 provides reliable delivery of critical pages, text messages, alarms and alerts secured by data encryption that is compatible with HIPAA requirements.
