BroadSoft, Inc., the telecommunications software company, on Monday announced completing the acquisition of iLinc Communications, Inc., a provider of Web collaboration services for global businesses, governments and educational institutions.
BroadSoft said iLinc’s Web collaboration tools will become BroadCloud Web Collaboration, a Software-as-a-Service-based Web collaboration service.
“With BroadCloud Web Collaboration our global service provider customers can now offer a branded, comprehensive Web collaboration service at a competitive price with the goal of earning higher margins versus reselling other services," BroadSoft CEO Michael Tessler said in a statement.
Tessler said BroadCloud Web Collaboration is designed for enterprises of all sizes across a wide range of industries, supporting such capabilities as hosting internal meetings with colleagues in various locations and conducting large training sessions online with thousands of attendees.
BroadSoft plans to demonstrate BroadSoft Web Collaboration at BroadSoft Connections 2011: Crush It! on Oct. 16-19, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix, where iLinc Communications is based. Gaithersburg, Md.-based BroadSoft provides software that enables mobile, fixed-line and cable service providers to deliver voice and multimedia services over their IP-based networks.
