LiteScape Allies with WebEx for Contact Management
LiteScape Technologies, a company that specializes in unified communication applications over IP-based networks, and WebEx Communications, announced Nov. 16 the launching of the LiteScape OnCast solution for WebEx Connect, giving businesses a way to access and manage their contacts and data across multiple technologies.
Rod Hamlin, executive vice president of sales and marketing for LiteScape, told eWEEK that this service targets enterprise WebEx Connect users and that it allows the user to "do simple things such as search, dial and broadcast. What LitScape tries to do is pull it all together with one click of a button."
LiteScape OnCast will allow WebEx Connect, a service that helps users integrate data from multiple applications and develop a shared workspace that is custom designed for their particular workflow.
Users can navigate through their network directories as well as have the ability to send and accept invitations from IP phones to join WebEx collaborative sessions when used with Microsoft Outlook.
OnCast also includes the following features:
"The ability to search and dial, search and broadcast, and search and collaborate will increase productivity and provide a tangible return for our customer base," Hamlin said.
WebEx Connect is designed for on-demand collaboration and third-party application integration and includes: online meetings, which lets users share their presentations and services in several formats; live events, which allows users to hold meetings and webinars with interactive and dynamic multimedia presentations; and Web, video and audio conferencing.
"By integrating WebEx and IP PBXs with partners like LiteScape, we provide a single, unified solution to improve the collaboration that drives todays businesses," said David Knight, vice president of WebEx connect.
LitesScape OnCast is now available for WebEx Connect users at an incremental add-on to the per-user monthly fee, as they will be able to access it through their personal WebEx Connect workspace.
