As workforces become more globally dispersed, and as enterprises make moves toward “greener” operations, conferencing technologies become less of a luxury and more of a necessity. Today’s panel, “Conferencing 2.0,” will discuss some of the conferencing market’s cutting-edge solutions, describing their implementation processes, target markets and unique selling propositions.
“In this session, sales partners will learn how basic conferencing technologies have matured into more integrated and comprehensive collaboration tools … and how to leverage these tools to increase their revenue,” said panelist Greg Plum, channel manager at The Conference Group. Plum also plans to discuss his company’s contribution to the increasingly innovative conferencing market, a video-over-IP conferencing solution, being pushed heavily through the channel.
Panelist Kenny Govier, vice president of U.S. sales for Ring2 Conferencing, adds that technological innovation and growth in the collaboration market are important because with the growing prevalence of telecommuting, agents will need more than just audio conferencing solutions to enhance their portfolios. “We will show you how to increase your client’s productivity during their regularly scheduled calls and give them an extra layer of security for their most important and confidential calls,” Govier said about Ring2’s conferencing management applications. “And if disaster recovery is a hot topic (and we know that it is), have we got an application for you and your customer base!”
Joining Plum and Govier will be Jonathan Khorsandi, CEO of Podference Inc., which automatically “time-shifts” conference calls into convenient and portable podcasts, in a secure format. Khorsandi will discuss how his offering stacks up in the market and how this technology might stand to affect agents.
