NextUC Releases Web Conferencing Upgrade
NextUC announces the completion of an update of its web conferencing products. NextUC completes changes to their cloud design that greatly enhanced an already strong web conferencing product suite (www.nextuc.com/why-nextuc/web-conferencing-nextuc). The changes increase the value delivered to NextUC customers while the cost continues to stay low. The value of the products can be compared to market leading vendors and is covered in more detail here:
Web Conferencing Comparison:
NextUC vs Webex and GoToMeeting:
|Service||NextUC||The Other Guys|
|8 Party Conference Leader:||$20.99||$19.00|
|25 Party Conference Leader:||Included||$49.00|
|500 PSTN Minutes:||$15 ($.03 /minute)||$45 ($.09 /minute)|
|1200 PSTN Minutes:||$36 ($.03 /minute)||$99 ($.0825 /min)|
|3000 PSTN Minutes:||$90 ($.03 /minute)||$225 ($.075 /min)|
The cost savings are actually conservative as they do not take into account The Other Guys requirement to prepay for calling… AND the fact that NextUC provides a Business Telephone System as part of its service.
These numbers don’t tell the whole story, which is just the way “The Other Guys” want it. One simple question to ask is, “how likely is it that you will use exactly 500, 1200 or 3000 minutes?” The answer is that it is extremely unlikely and that is why The Other Guys sell you pre bundled minutes… they make more money. NextUC’s Web Conferencing has greatly enhanced the quality of video, the speed for screen resolutions and as with the rest of the products suite is delivered with low prices and no long term obligations.
Web Conferencing is about joining people together to produce more, faster. It largely serves two purposes, cut spend on travel and make it easier to collaborate. The large providers are challenged because they are facing massive investments they need to protect and challenges are now delivering products that are as good or better and a whole lot cheaper. NextUC believes that web conferencing should be like any other technology or telecom service, it should be powerful, cheap and easy to use… and it should not tie customers to long term contracts. NextUC allows you to choose a provider that can make it easy to cut spend more significantly while also allowing your business to promote and encourage the use of collaboration services.
NextUC takes the collaboration discussion a step further. While the cost comparison to the other guys is impressive, it only compares a single service. NextUC also provides Lync Enterprise PSTN calling which is a telephone system replacement for that same cost. The combined service suite is an unparalleled value in the market.
NextUC encourages businesses to try the service for no charge for 60 days. Try web conferencing, outbound calling, Microsoft Unified Messaging, desktop sharing, rich presence and everything else that Microsoft Lync provides at no risk. Allow your team to produce more with much less friction with NextUC.
