November 06, 2009

RHUB Communications, Inc., a provider of Web conferencing solutions, has reportedly signed a partnership agreement with Huddle.net, a provider of online collaboration solutions.

Under the deal, Huddle can integrate RHUB’s TurboMeeting technology into its enterprise networking platform and deliver interactive, real-time, synchronous conferencing collaboration to its customers.
“The ability to enjoy instantaneous feedback and interaction while managing projects delivers tremendous value to our customers,” said Alistair Mitchell, co-founder and CEO at Huddle, in a statement. “The addition of TurboMeeting technologies to our platform strengthens Huddle’s position as a single place online that offers all the necessary tools to get stuff done, where teams can work effectively across all boundaries.”
RHUB Communications recently had released the version 4.0 of its TurboMeeting Web conferencing software adding even more value to the Unified Communications platform through feature rich video, chat and screen-sharing collaboration solutions.
Huddle has been delivering secure online workspaces that give users the ability to manage projects, share and store files online, schedule phone conferences and host online discussion groups. Now, with the integration of TurboMeeting, Huddle.net users can also have the added benefit of synchronous conferencing that allows for real-time interaction and immediate feedback among group members during their online collaboration.
“Virtual solutions, like conferencing and collaboration, are simply a part of the new way of doing business,” said Larry Dorie, CEO at RHUB, in a statement. “Through our involvement with Huddle.net, we are giving customers the enhanced collaboration solutions that they need to effectively work across dispersed environments, as they continue to manage business in this growing and interactive Web solutions marketplace.”
Huddle.net officials also said that the company is planning to rollout the new integration of TurboMeeting into its online workspaces for its users in the United States and in Europe.
