Fuze Web to Enable the First Full UCaaS Experience - No Download Required
the leading cloud-based communications platform provider for the modern
global enterprise, today announced it will be expanding its
communication and collaboration experience through Fuze
Web, enabling any user or guest participant to enjoy the same
experience as Fuze Desktop users without the need to install apps or
browser extensions. Expanding on deep integrations with Google and
Microsoft (News - Alert) products, users can now further enhance productivity and
streamline collaboration from any Web Real-Time Communication
(WebRTC)-enabled browser with one simple click.
According to a report
by Accuray Research LLP, the global WebRTC market is poised to grow at
an annual growth rate of 36.8 percent over the next decade to reach
approximately $41.94 billion by 2025. As market demand is set to
increase, Fuze Web is designed to simplify deployment and accessibility
of unified communications across the enterprise ecosystem. It provides
single-click functionality and integrations with Google (News - Alert) and Microsoft
productivity suites, enabling users to seamlessly move between business
apps for calling, chatting, meeting, and content sharing without leaving
their browser. Additionally, Fuze Web helps simplify real-time
collaboration by delivering integrated video conferencing and real-time
content sharing capabilities with a frictionless "meeting join" flow for
"We feel a level of acceptance has prevailed when it comes to enterprise
communications. Most experiences are fraught with delayed meeting
starts, heavy administrative complexity, and compatibility issues with
existing operating systems. Frankly, we don't think that's acceptable,"
said Derek Yoo, Chief Product Officer, Fuze. "Users will find that Fuze
Web is very much an extension of the platform's user experience that
customers have come to know and love, offeing 100 percent of the
collaboration technology with zero percent of the hassle. We are doing
more than giving users the ability to enjoy the full Fuze experience
right from their browser. Simply put: we're eliminating long-held
frustrations altogether by removing what has made the process so
unsatisfying and inefficient in the first place."
Unlike most collaboration tools, Fuze Web can run directly from the
browser without plugins or downloads required. Deep integration into
Google and Microsoft enterprise environments enables Fuze to extend
best-in-breed productivity solutions while streamlining internal and
external communication and collaboration. For example, users can "Make a
Call" using the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge Dialer, or they can turn
any calendar event into a Fuze meeting, allowing up to 1,000
participants to attend in seconds. Fuze Web also automatically sets a
user's presence based on Google or Microsoft calendar presence, and can
display Office 365 and Google Calendar contact information just as it
would on Fuze Desktop.
IDC (News - Alert) estimates
that by 2018, over 25 percent of Fortune 500 companies will have
deployed IT-supported Chromebooks across their organizations. Fuze Web
was designed in anticipation of this trend, and is the first to deliver
a full Unified Communications (News - Alert) as a Service (UCaaS) experience for

"Fuze increases the efficiency of communication by combining a simple
user experience, an intelligent platform, and third-party enterprise
