Unified Communications Week in Review: Redbooth, TEL-COM Solutions, FreeConferenceCall.com and More
It’s that time again, when the week that is becomes the week that was. Try not to get too nostalgic as we reflect on the happenings in the world of unified communications (UC) this past week.
Alexandra Duggan, a contributing writer for Unified Communication, gave us a few tips for telecommuting earlier this week. Telecommuting has increased by almost 80 percent since 2005, and we can only predict this number will continue to rise. While working from home may seem like a flexible luxury, there are certain actions that need to be taken to create the most productive environment possible; for example, make a schedule, maintain a balance between work time and “home” time, get dressed for the day, and several other simple measures that can improve the work from home experience.
In the UC industry, Redbooth landed a slot in the Enterprise Connect Innovation Showcase. This year, the event has a particular focus on the tools needed to help build team collaboration efforts. That's where Redbooth steps in, with a new line of products specifically geared not only toward driving UC efforts but also in augmenting collaboration. Redbooth will also show off the Private Cloud system, which makes it simpler for IT staff to control not only installation, but also security from behind a firewall, allowing for better compliance with privacy regulations and improved use of security policies.
In keeping with the theme of “partnerships,” we’ve seen so far this month in the UC world, TEL-COM Solutions announced that is joining Broadview Networks to Offer New Cloud Options. With Broadview’s OfficeSuite, TEL-COM can offer a line of tools geared toward the small and medium-sized business (SMB) market, with a particular focus on getting both software and infrastructure alike into the cloud outright. The complete OfficeSuite system offers a host of new features, as reported by Steve Anderson here.
In other news, FreeConferenceCall.com is now offering its services in Brazil. Long Beach, California-based FreeConferenceCall.com offers a free conference call service that has few limitations when it comes to setting up conferences. According to the company’s website, audio conferencing can be setup for 1,000 attendees while online meetings can be setup for up to 25 attendees. There is no limit to the number of conferences you can setup. You can record the meetings and distribute the media at no cost.

And that’s a wrap! Stay updated with us every week as we continue tracking developments in the UC World.
