UXC subsidiary, Integ Group, has launched a new hosted conference centre to target mid- and large enterprise customers.
The Conference Centre, deployed on Alcatel-Lucent technology, is an extension of its Integ telephony-as-a-service (iTaaS) market offering, which has been available since September 2007. The new solution is designed with simplicity in mind and is based on a monthly subscription model rather than a usage basis.
Once the service is live, users can set-up their own conference at any time and invite participants at no additional cost. Pricing begins at $1400 for five people per month for voice and Web collaboration – allowing any combination of five people in simultaneous conference. Video collaboration options are also available.
Integ CEO, Ian Poole, said the solution was launched in response to customer demand.
“We are aiming for the mid- to large enterprise market with this, and it has been designed as a complement for our other iTaaS offerings,” he said. “Customers do not need to be a customer of other iTaaS solutions to sign up for this solution.”
Research from analyst firm, Telsyte, claims that 25 per cent of SMEs are interested in taking up hosted telephony some time in the next five years, and that the market penetration of hosted unified communications may reach a maximum of 18 per cent in the same period.
