SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Voxeet, a leading communications innovator and pioneer of TrueVoice™ technology today announced a new solution that synthesizes its award-winning 3D immersive surround sound with powerful team collaboration features.
This combination allows highly mobile and global teams to connect like never before and marks a first for the communications industry: Voxeet 4.0 is the only conferencing and team collaboration solution that enables 3D immersive, surround sound.
Voxeet 4.0 addresses a huge challenge for today's businesses – the mobile workforce. Teams are becoming more and more distributed and changing the way they work in the process. Meetings are conducted in any location across borders and time zones from cafes and home offices to trains, planes and autos.
According to a forecast from International Data Corporation (IDC), by 2020, the number of U.S. mobile workers will grow to 105.4 million, a jump from 96.2 million in 2015. Also by that year, mobile workers will make up 72.3 percent of the total U.S. workforce.
"Mobility has become synonymous with productivity both inside and outside the workplace, and the mass adoption of mobile technology in the United States has cultivated an environment where workers expect to leverage mobile technology at work," said IDC research analyst Bryan Bassett in a statement. "This expectation will be supplemented by new solutions specifically intended to manage the challenges associated with the growing needs of the mobile workforce."1
Leveraging the company's proprietary, TrueVoice technology, Voxeet 4.0 provides the technology that today's mobile workers need – high-quality, always-reliable audio along with collaboration features that make it easy to share and organize information in real-time and with minimal effort.
Voxeet 4.0 works on most any mobile device and seamlessly transfers from one to the next -- a big perk for workers on the go. They'll also enjoy a completely new look and feel for keeping highly distributed teams connected and in-tune.
This new Voxeet solution offers easier on-boarding and navigation, including the ability for a user to quickly join on the Web as a guest without having to download the app.
Users can create ongoing conversations – including messages, chats, voice messages, recorded calls, files and images. Voice conversations and messages are always crystal clear. TrueVoice ensures that users pick-up on subtle nuances, read between the words and know what people are really feeling and saying even when listening to recorded conference calls and leaving messages for their team members. With Voxeet, users eliminate garbled voices, static, confusing sign-on processes, dropped calls and long waits for colleagues to join the line -- some of the biggest time wasters and hindrances for getting work done.
"Today's workplace is changing at a rapid pace -- communicating and collaborating often and clearly is becoming more and more important in this new era of the highly mobile worker," said Stephane Giraudie, CEO and founder of Voxeet. "Ours is the first conferencing and collaboration platform built for this, reimagining the team conferencing and collaboration experience from beginning to end and increasing ability of workers to meet the demands of the new mobile workplace in a highly efficient way."
At Voxeet, we understand that every conversation matters and that is why it is our mission to make it easy for distributed teams to create and leverage every message, chat, voice call and file -- the new Voxeet 4.0 disrupts the old conferencing model to do just that with the richest sound quality available and an unprecedented level of collaboration," added Giraudie.
Voxeet 4.0's new collaboration features allow users to:
- Record and Relive Conversations: With meeting replay in real-time, users can easily and quickly review and share calls as they happen as well as capture the content of each call with TrueVoice quality. The meeting can then become a point of reference for future meetings and internal conversations.
- Share and Present Files and Photos: Share information with team members via file and photo sharing and presentation along with other collaboration capabilities.
- Flexible File Sharing: Share a wide range of files on mobile devices from anywhere on the desktop, web or in the cloud. Being able to share files from wherever they are stored, from Drobox to Box, gives users a high degree of versatility and flexibility.
- Create Channels: Easily categorize saved conversations and associated interactions such as files, a chat thread, photos, voice messages and conference call history. Name a current or future conversation as belonging to a specific channel and they are automatically categorized and tagged as belonging to that channel.
- Share Information During and After a Call: Share files to present information during a call as well as a recording of the call via the conference-call summary email.
"For FollowAnalytics, communications flow equals financial flow," said Samir Addamine, founder and chairman of FollowAnalytics. Anything that interrupts that flow hampers our business -- and that can significantly impact our bottom line in a negative way. We're looking forward to implementing Voxeet 4.0 so absolutely nothing gets lost in translation and our team's productivity flow is seamless and smooth."
The new collaboration features, wrapped into Voxeet 4.0, are now available free to users until Feb 2016, when Voxeet will be announcing Voxeet Pro, which will be available on a subscription basis.
