TMCnet Communication Service Week in Review
February 02, 2013
It’s that day of the week again! Let’s take a few minutes to reconvene and review the latest developments in the CaaS community.
Starting the week off in a positive manner, Frontier Capital gave $10 million worth of investments to ConnectSolutions to help continue its growth in the Unified Communications (News - Alert) (UC) world. Frontier focuses on the growth of companies and decided that ConnectSolutions would be a successful investment. ConnectSolutions is a Unified-Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) solution based on its UC3 Platform that speeds up deployment of UC platforms.
AT&T has also partnered up with RingCentral (News - Alert) to offer cloud-based phone systems for both the work and home environment. With the BYOD ever increasing and the growth of UC rising, it is important that companies make devices that provide accessibility and integration for its users. The new partnership has helped create RingCentral Office @Hand from AT&T (News - Alert), which is a nationwide service that makes it easier for businesses to connect with each other and their customers, whether it’s in-office or mobile.
To help law students or attorneys operating from their mobile phones, FTI has announced its new Ringtail 8.3 Self-Serve Private Cloud to improve review workflow and create more management tools for legal reviews. FTI Consulting 8.3 version of its Ringtail e-discovery software can be accessed and managed in a secure, private cloud. Instead of wasting the money that goes along with procuring, installing and managing hardware, the new cloud-based system will be inexpensive, seamless and fast management operations.
Virtual Global created the SaaS Maker, which is an end-to-end platform that allows developers to, create publish and market software-as-a-service solutions (SaaS (News - Alert)) quickly and easily. The new software helps developers where most cloud platforms have fallen short, which is in the marketing area. The SaaS Maker features will improve the security, reliability and affordability for businesses operating in a cloud-based area.
