NextUC Improving Value For Users Leaving Webex & Other Web Conferencing Products
Foster City, CA – June 27, 2012: Today, NextUC announced strong adoption of its live collaboration platform by customers leaving other web conferencing (www.webex.com) products in search of lower costs and improved functionality. The two leading reasons for the NextUC’s recent success in attracting users from other products are a combination of teams looking for a more cost effective solution and for a more holistic collaboration solution.
NextUC’s unique focus on delivering a complete team collaboration experience including web conferencing, audio conferencing, chat, presence, video conferencing and telephone service is what is separating NextUC from market leaders like Webex and GoToMeeting. The NextUC product can be evaluated, purchased, deployed and consumed by non-technical people within an organization and once deployed provides an amazingly powerful collaboration experience. A complete feature and cost comparison can be found here (http://www.nextuc.com/why-nextuc/web-conferencing-nextuc/).
Typically NextUC customers work in teams that are in multiple locations of a single company, but many times are in different companies. NextUC enables team leads to purchase the product for a very low monthly expense, have it up and running in minutes and all without the need to engage IT or Sr Management. The shift in the experience from the historic expensive, time consuming, distractive and often incomplete solutions to NextUC’s “Business App” experience allows teams to be more productive and collaborative for less money than they are spending today.
“NextUC enables the team leaders to lead and be more productive rather than wait on long and delayed corporate cycles,” says Bob Barnes, EVP of Product Marketing and Sales. “The NextUC solution seems to be resolving many challenges for current Cisco Webex and Citrix GoToMeeting customers.”
The key features that seem to be providing the most value to these clients include rich presence management with chat, telephony, audio conferencing and web conferencing (www.nextuc.com/plans-pricing). The NextUC experience also means that these team members do not need to change applications or lose connection with any of the team for any reason because of a complete mobile experience that even ties in remote, traveling or home workers.
