OfficeSuite Customers with Polycom, Cisco and Lifesize Conference Room Systems Can Now Easily Conduct Virtual Meetings with Desktop, Laptop and Mobile Users
July 26, 2017, Rye Brook, NY – Broadview Networks®, a leader in cloud-based unified communications (UC) and information technology services, has announced the release of its OfficeSuite HD Meeting Room Connector, which integrates video conferencing via meeting room systems with desktop and mobile users. This latest feature addition gives businesses the power to eliminate complex scheduling and to lower operation and administrative costs, all while seamlessly communicating across multiple locations and devices with the award-winning OfficeSuite HD Meeting™.
Room Connector works using any internet connection, enabling meeting room systems from Polycom, Cisco, Tandberg, Lifesize and more to instantly communicate with one another, as well as with any desktop, tablet or mobile device. The intuitive design of this new connector, combined with HD Meeting’s easy-to-use platform, maximizes collaboration for businesses with multiple locations and meeting rooms. By simply entering an address and meeting number, executives in a conference room can now video chat with other offices and remote workers on one screen, while utilizing HD Meeting’s whiteboard annotation features to edit and compare documents.
Each Room Connector license enables a business to connect any of its conference room systems to HD Meeting, regardless of location or type. Setup is fast and simple, with minimal involvement from any IT personnel required. Room Connector offers remote support and cutting-edge features, such as dual cameras, to maximize the productivity of face-to-face interactions. The ability to have co-workers share and edit documents in real-time enhances meeting and presentation quality and empowers businesses to work more effectively. Meetings can also be broken into groups, splitting participants into as many as 50 different sessions and allowing the meeting organizer to switch between them as needed for optimal group collaboration.
“HD Meeting’s virtual face-to-face conferencing between either large groups or individual employees from anywhere and at any time eliminates travel and IT costs and has never been easier to self-manage,” said Jeff Blackey, Broadview’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “While traditional room conference systems are often criticized for being costly and requiring heavy IT involvement that leaves systems underutilized, OfficeSuite HD Meeting delivers powerful collaborative tools. Room Connector specifically allows a business to gain an edge in mobile productivity, allowing enterprises to function at their highest possible level.”
