Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
January 05, 2016, Cambridge, MA – Fuze, the cloud-based video conferencing company acquired by ThinkingPhones in November of 2015, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant for Web Conferencing.
“We feel being included in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Conferencing as a Visionary is further validation of our collective vision for unifying communication in the enterprise,” said Steve Kokinos, Founder and CEO, ThinkingPhones. “Today’s distributed workforce demands a platform that promotes engagement and collaboration on whichever device they choose, and we believe that Gartner’s designation reinforces our collective mission to provide the superior user experience and engagement platform that our customers have come to expect.”
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Conferencing report evaluates vendors in the market. Members of the Visionaries quadrant typically have important, unique, and/or well-developed technical capabilities, and provide key innovations that illustrate the future of the market. However, they have not yet developed the sales and support capabilities to address or influence the whole market.
Fuze, which was acquired by ThinkingPhones to expand its platform to enable the modern, mobile workforce to conduct business anytime, anywhere, is based in San Francisco with additional offices in Palo Alto and Seattle. Fuze helps distributed teams work across distances through HD-quality voice and video conferencing and content sharing across devices, desktops, and meeting rooms. More than 100,000 companies use Fuze to make meetings more meaningful, including Groupon, Starbucks, Macys.com, and Thoughtworks.
