PGi’s audio conferencing solution GlobalMeet, now integrates with Skype for Business Server environments, which will allow workers inside and outside of an enterprise to join a Skype meeting directly from a desk or mobile phone with adoption and support provided by PGi’s global customer care team.
According to PGi, GlobalMeet for Skype Server gives users greater functionality and better value. This is because PGi manages all global network and carrier requirements so enterprise IT teams can focus less on day-to-day management of bandwidth to accommodate voice traffic.
“Technology investments are a significant capital expenditure for enterprises today,” said Pat Harper, PGi’s CTO. “GlobalMeet for Skype Server doesn’t require new on premise hardware as our plug-in carries over the open internet, making it cost-effective and easy to deploy. This new offering gives users a better Skype experience and extends the longevity of existing investments for IT teams to create better business value.”
The solution also provides support for Skype users through PGi’s customer service, meaning IT teams can outsource support questions. GlobalMeet has global coverage with over 160 access points across more than 60 countries, from over 40 carriers and provides technical deployment support as PGi consulting services checks on your Skype for Business network, full reporting capabilities, and network assessment.
“PGi’s new premise-based offering for Skype for Business Server will help enterprises get the most from their investments,” said Rob Arnold, principal analyst, Frost & Sullivan. Today, we see millions of dollars of unrealised technology potential within investments made by enterprises. PGi’s GlobalMeet integration will help close that gap for the IT professional.”
