Unified Communications Week in Review: Fusion, Voxbone, PGi & More
Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in Unified Communications this week.
The week started off in preparation of ITEXPO; TMC caught up with Dries Plasman, VP of Product Management at Voxbone, to discuss the company’s successes over the past year, and its predictions for the future. Plasman discussed the importance of unified communications and even provided some insights into how UC is implemented at the company. You can find all of Plasman’s insights and his thoughts on the future of UC HERE.
Meanwhile, Fusion has certainly been making a name for itself in the healthcare industry. Most recently, a leading radiology center in the Midwest signed a three year contract with Fusion for its cloud services. As Web Editor Maurice Nagle points out, there’s a reason Fusion has become such an important name in the healthcare industry: “With Fusion comes flexibility, leading to the ability to maintain a quality standard in secure and diverse cloud connections. Another added benefit of the selection is that the radiology center has one vendor to work with for all of its cloud service needs – there is one single point of contact for integrated services.” You can keep reading HERE.
Next up, the news broke that Premier Global Services, Inc. (PGi) has acquired ReadyTalk to expand its UC offerings. ReadyTalk is a provider of cloud communications services, including everything from audio, Web and video conferencing to self-service and managed webinar solutions. Previously, PGi customers did not have access to all of these collaboration solutions, but that problem has now been remedied. Find out all you need to know HERE.
Finally, the week rounded out with some good news for BroadSoft. The company was just named a leader in the UCaaS market by IHS Markit because BroadSoft's UCaaS platforms currently account for 38 percent of all UCaaS operations worldwide, as of 2016's second quarter. As Steve Anderson points out, “BroadSoft itself recently announced it had over 15 million cloud-based UC lines deployed around the world, which actually represented three times the number its closest competitor could muster.” You can find out what else sets BroadSoft apart from the competition HERE.
