More on The Facebook Paradox

Conferencing / Collaboration Whitepaper

January 2, 2008

For those of you that have been following our series of webinars on SIP-enabled applications, we just posted my most recent whitepaper on conferencing / collaboration applications:

SIP Conferencing/Collaboration
Global organizations utilize conference calls as a very important business tool for collaboration. Multi-branch organizations were the first to recognize the value in voice and video conferencing services to economize on travel costs and to coordinate business activities. Other smaller organizations have also begun to recognize that having access to easy-to-use conferencing resources speed up collaboration efforts with clients and suppliers.
