BASKING RIDGE, NJ, and SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Verizon Wireless and FuzeBox, a global leader in real-time visual collaboration applications, today announced the availability of Fuze Meeting, a technology solution to bring cloud-based high-definition (HD) content collaboration and multi-party video conferencing to small and medium-sized businesses and enterprise customers. Fuze Meeting will now be available via the Business Solutions Alliance (BSA) Program on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.
With Fuze Meeting, users have the ability to start multi-party HD video conferences from their smartphones, and they can add documents for cross-platform HD content collaboration from virtually anywhere and on any smartphone device, regardless of its operating system. Fuze Meeting’s easy-to-use real-time collaboration tools and intuitive elegant user interface (UI) on tablets and smartphones make it a must-have solution for today’s mobile workforce.
The Fuze Meeting video conference solution can provide benefits to customers across a number of industries, including professional services, healthcare, education and finance. For example, in the healthcare industry, medical staff can remotely access patient X-rays, obtain live video consultation with doctors, and instantly collaborate with a pool of experts through video conferencing capabilities. In the creative services industry, agencies can review comps and graphics in real time with their clients, and, in turn, can make annotations to provide feedback, thereby saving time and delivering the campaign quicker.
The interoperability of Fuze Meeting with existing video conferencing and telepresence solutions is of tremendous value to Verizon Wireless business customers, enabling them to extend the reach of video conferencing and collaboration beyond the boardroom to the entire workforce.
“In the last few years, telepresence and video conferencing have advanced to the next echelon, and, with 4G, we are moving business capabilities to the next level,” said Michael Toto, director, Enterprise and Government Partnerships, Verizon Wireless. “As tablets and mobile devices continue to advance their capabilities and get adopted as de facto tools in the business environment, video collaboration is becoming mainstream for diagnostics, analysis, transactions and many other drivers that companies rely on. FuzeBox is delivering a perfect meeting place for the two technologies, offering high-quality, user-friendly solutions to a wide range of industries and customers, and the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network ties them all together.”
The Verizon Wireless BSA Program was created to serve mobile application software developers, best-of-breed integrators, service providers and other business entities for the development, marketing, sale and delivery of wireless data solutions to small and medium-sized business and enterprise customers.
“Verizon Wireless and FuzeBox will bring users a new era of mobile productivity,” said FuzeBox Chief Executive Officer Jeff Cavins. “Corporate customers will finally be able to take full advantage of powerful cloud-based tools, such as Fuze Meeting, in conjunction with Verizon Wireless’ market-defining 4G LTE network, allowing users to have freedom of choice and location when meeting or collaborating with one another.
