Unified Communications Week in Review


May 10, 2014

The world of Unified Communications has seen a variety of exciting events this week; let’s take a look and see what happened.

SnapChat has finally added a chat room service to its mobile application.  The new feature allows easier communication with contacts and this major upgrade puts them smack in the middle of an “ever-growing instant messaging war.”

Panasonic released two new premium design series of cordless telephones.  Both series possess features allowing a user to use their smartphone or tablet as a handset.  Or, you can use easy-grab-and-grip design of the handsets that offer one hand or hands-free operation.

A recent blog post from TeoTech.com addresses the trials and tribulations of the BYOD movement. It is not as simple as hooking up an employee’s smartphone to the company server. As the BYOD movement evolves, UC solutions offer organizations less risk if they choose to dive headfirst into the BYOD movement.

LeaseSource, one of the nation’s premier leasing companies, and Mutualink, which has developed an interoperable communications platform that enables community-wide multimedia sharing, have partnered up to  expand access to Mutualink’s platform.

Cisco made the news this week when they introduced a new Business Edition platform that was priced and packaged for enterprises with 1,000 to 5,000 users.  The new Business Edition 7000 comes loaded with a user-friendly setup and management, and due to the system’s modular, stackable design, adding more users, devices and applications can be done easily without issue.

This week GE Capital’s Equipment Finance launched its global financing software. Polycom RealPresence One and Polycom RealPresence Platform were designed with today’s evolving customer needs—changing business requirements, sales and financing.

That’s the roundup from the week in Unified Communications.  Check back daily to stay in the know!
