InterCall and Huddle.net have announced a global partnership that delivers what they say is the world’s first unified collaboration, communication and social networking platform for the enterprise. Under the terms of the deal, InterCall will be reselling Huddle globally and giving each of its customers a free Huddle account. Similarly, Huddle’s enterprise customers will be able to take advantage of InterCall’s conferencing services.
The new relationship means that InterCall conferencing customers can schedule phone and Web meetings in Huddle and share dial-in details, documents and meeting minutes. In addition, they will benefit from Huddle’s project management and collaboration tools including discussions, whiteboards, tasks and document versioning and audit trail.
Huddle features secure, VPN-like access from any computer. By using its customizable workspaces, customers can bypass e-mail, avoid FTP servers and eliminate USBs and CDs. It also offers a unique RSS feature that keeps teams on track with updates and deadlines.
