Meetrix’s flagship offering, Meetrix UC in the Cloud for IBM Sametime, delivers “Sametime as a Service” – a service that manages the IBM Sametime solution for customers from the cloud. Meetrix UC in the Cloud for IBM Sametime can be deployed in hours for small and medium businesses. In larger enterprises it can be deployed for a few days so customers get instant access to the benefits of IBM Sametime.
The Polycom RealPresence Platform enriches the social collaboration experience by allowing IBM Sametime and IBM Connections users to collaborate in secure multi-party or point-to-point video calls. The RealPresence Platform software infrastructure connects users across any environment – immersive video suites, conference rooms, work and home offices, and smartphones, laptops and tablets. It can be installed on-premises or delivered as a service from the cloud.
“We’ve offered integration with IBM Sametime for years but as more customers – especially small and midsized companies – explore cloud strategies, we’re excited to partner with Meetrix, a real innovator in this space,” said Steve Pattison, vice president of Business Development, Polycom.
“The Meetrix UC in the Cloud for IBM Sametime service allows customers to deploy IBM Sametime almost instantly, and when you integrate Polycom RealPresence video solutions into the social business environment, customers can keep their upfront costs down, leverage their existing investments, and quickly realize a return on their investment from the increased productivity of face-to-face collaboration,” Pattison said.
Lee Fawcett, CEO of Meetrix said, “We’ve heard from our customers that enterprise-class UC delivered from the cloud is needed, and our joint solution, whether the video infrastructure is on-premises or delivered from the cloud, offers the best-in-class UC and video solution-set available today.”
The offering is available globally for existing Polycom RealPresence Platform and Meetrix UC in the Cloud for IBM Sametime customers at no additional integration or application cost.
