Promptus Communications and Genesys Conferencing form strategic alliance to develop the multimedia conferencing market in Australia and Asia Pacific
Promptus Communications, an Australia-based company providing conferencing, high-speed access and security solutions to the Asia Pacific market, today announced that it has entered into a strategic alliance with Genesys Conferencing, a global multimedia conferencing leader, to deliver audio and Web conferencing services to its corporate and enterprise customer base.
The service, Promptus Meeting Centre, has been specifically tailored by Genesys and Promptus to provide a fully automated, interactive and integrated audio and Web meeting facility for business users, accessed via a secure Promptus account card or Web-based interface. This secure, easy-to-use voice and Web conference solution is particularly suitable for organizations with a distributed structure or geographically dispersed customers or regular business travellers. Callers can join a meeting quickly and easily, using any phone for the audio conference and a standard Internet connection for the Web conference. The service can be employed for a wide range of meetings, including e-training and continuing education, project reviews, management updates, client presentations and reviews, product updates and sales team meetings.
“Promptus Meeting Centre is a generation ahead of other services in the market,” said Michael Smith, CEO of Promptus Communications. “The simplicity and functionality of the integrated audio and Web solution developed by Genesys, together with a simple and cost-effective pricing model that includes Web conferencing, is a very powerful offering compared to traditional phone conferencing services. We are delighted to be partnering with Genesys Conferencing as we go forward in Asia Pacific.”
“As a partner, Promptus brings a wealth of experience in the conferencing market in Asia Pacific to the Genesys camp,” said Olivier Fourcade, Managing Director of the Asia Pacific region for Genesys Conferencing. “We are pleased to be working with the Promptus team to further penetrate existing and new markets.”
