Cloud-based Service to Power Government Agency’s Evolving Internal and External Video Communication Needs

PR Newswire

NEW YORKJuly 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Watchitoo, Inc., a leading cloud-based interactive video collaboration service, today announced it was awarded a multi-year contract to support the U.S. Department of State’s global interactive communication programs. Watchitoo’s secure video service will enable the State Department to easily communicate with both internal teams and external parties on a worldwide scale.

Watchitoo’s service combines video conferencing, collaboration tools and broadcast quality streaming together in a single platform that delivers scalable, interactive sessions that are easily customizable and branded for each client and audience need. The company’s platform is used by leading corporations, higher educational institutions and government agencies.

“We’re honored to support the important global communication initiatives of the U.S. State Department,” said Dori Gurwitz, VP of Sales and Partnerships at Watchitoo. “Government agencies have used online video for years to facilitate one-way communication to various audiences. However, with the growth in remote workforces and global audiences’ appetite for two-way communication using online video, government agencies need a better and more scalable way to support them. Watchitoo’s platform allows agencies like the State Department to save time and money by deploying a single service that supports their evolving video communication needs.”

Watchitoo’s cloud-based platforms contains a number of key features that make it an ideal video collaboration solution for government agencies, including:

  • Fast Deployment – because it is a SaaS-based service, the Watchitoo platform can be configured and activated in a matter of hours, eliminating the need for lengthy IT administrator-assisted configuration;
  • Seamless Website Integration – branded video rooms and players can be easily embedded into any website, intranet or mobile environment. This makes it possible for government agencies to make video collaboration part of their existing web presence;
  • Worldwide Scalability – a scalable service that automatically extends to support unlimited users based on demand. As a result, when major events unfold, agencies have the confidence that the system will support their on-demand needs; and,
  • On-Premise Deployment Option – available as both a cloud-based and private network solution, the on-premise options are designed to meet every desired security model.

Watchitoo’s contract was awarded using a GSA IT Schedule 70 vehicle through solution provider Zappold Advisors LLC of Maryland. For more information, call (518) 461-4975 or email gsa.it70@zappoldadvisors.com.
