Suitable Technologies Inc. recently announced that the company, along with its French partner Awabot, has joined hands with Orange (News - Alert) SA, a company that provides telecommunication solutions to bring together Suitable Technologies' Beam+ and Ub-y, a new offering from Orange.
Ub-y, which will now be powered by Beam+ technology, will help the users cut down on travel time and costs. The customers will be able to interact naturally by using Beam+ from their computers anytime. Beam+ includes two cameras, a microphone array and speaker integrated into the display, and a battery back-up of two hours.
"The collaboration of Orange and Suitable Technologies marks an important step forward in the availability of Smart Presence Systems for consumers," said Scott Hassan, CEO, Suitable Technologies, in a recent press release. "We're happy to play a part in making Ub-y and Beam+ a reality for Orange customers."
Suitable Technologies' Beam+ technology combines mobility and video conferencing to create an immersive communication experience anywhere and everywhere conversations take place. The solution enables people to be there, and interact naturally by seeing and being seen, hearing and being heard, and the freedom to move about, from anywhere in the world.
In related news, Suitable Technologies, Inc. recently revealed its new Beam Corporate Leasing Program to offer large organizations the opportunity to test the Beam remote presence system for a 3-year period. The Beam Corporate Leasing Program includes the latest client software, Version 2.0. Beam is a communication tool that allows teams to stay connected, expand their reach, and interact effectively across multiple offices or locations.
The Beam Corporate Leasing Program provides qualified accounts with Beam for 36 months to discover the functionality within their organizations. Following this period, which requires a $4,950 initial payment and monthly fee of $574, the company will own its Beam.
