SAN JOSE, Calif., and SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) face a difficult choice when it comes to video conferencing: Spend six figures up front for a solution designed for large enterprises or settle for consumer-grade services such as Skype. Vidtel has teamed up with Myers Network Solutions to provide SMEs with an affordable, high-quality alternative: Vidtel's MeetMe, a cloud-based service that enables video conferences between room-based systems, executive desktop video systems, PCs/Macs, smartphones and tablets using any combination of SIP, H.323, Skype and Google Talk technologies.
Through Vidtel's MeetMe service, Myers Network Solutions' clients now can conduct video conferences regardless of endpoint, platform or service and without the need for expensive bridges or exchange services. MeetMe's affordable, predictable pricing makes enterprise-grade video conferencing a viable option for businesses of any size. The service requires no IT expertise or additional capital expenditure beyond existing systems and is as easy to use as dialing a telephone.
Under the distribution agreement, Myers now offers Vidtel Connect on InFocus's 55-inch Mondopad wall tablet, as well as Vidtel MeetMe for both the Mondopad and other video conferencing devices, including Polycom, Tandberg and LifeSize products. Myers is among the latest participant in Vidtel's channel program, which is open to value-added resellers (VARs) such as video conferencing specialists, AV integrators, VoIP providers and managed service providers.
"Vidtel's MeetMe service enables our clients to overcome the No. 1 barrier to implementing video conferencing: the big-gulp upfront cost of infrastructure," said Victoria Myers, Myers Network Solutions cofounder and director of operations. "Vidtel's cloud-based, product-agnostic solution is ideal for a wide range of our clients, including financial advisors, higher education, consulting services and companies with regional offices. Vidtel makes video conferencing a no-brainer for small business owners who are looking to maximize staff time, minimize travel costs, reduce their carbon footprint and improve customer service."
"Myers Network Solutions is an example of how VARs nationwide are partnering with Vidtel to bring affordable, enterprise-grade video conferencing services to the underserved SME market," said Scott Wharton, Vidtel CEO. "Vidtel's new reseller program enables Myers to stand out from rivals whose video conferencing solutions are limited to large enterprises. The program also provides Myers with a recurring revenue stream, which is key as the price of video conferencing endpoints continues to decline."
The Vidtel MeetMe video conferencing service is available immediately from Myers Network Solutions. For more information about Vidtel's MeetMe channel program, visit www.vidtel.com/vidtel-partnerships.html.
