OnCast one-touch WebEx conferencing to be showcased in new Xtended Marketplace
Redwood Shores, Calif., March 18, 2008 - LiteScape Technologies, Inc. (www.litescape.com), the market leader in unified communications applications, today announced that they are joining the Web 2.0 crowd on BroadSoft Xtended, which is an initiative from VoIP application provider BroadSoft Inc. to drive innovative, Web 2.0 applications to end-users of BroadSoft's BroadWorks® platform.
BroadSoft® is a market leader in voice over IP (VoIP) application software, and its BroadWorks VoIP application platform is used by hundreds of telecom service providers to deliver advanced voice features to business and residential customers. With BroadSoft Xtended, the BroadWorks platform becomes infinitely more valuable to service providers and end-users by integrating voice into popular applications and Web services through application mashups.
LiteScape is joining the BroadSoft Xtended program and making its OnCast unified communications solution available in the new BroadSoft Xtended Marketplace, an online community where service providers and end-users can access mashups and other solutions integrated with BroadWorks features.
OnCast enables one-touch activation to join or create WebEx meetings from an IP phone or PC. With OnCast, you can communicate directly from your desktop applications, controlling your phones from your PC to collaborate and do business quickly and more efficiently. OnCast also extends functionality traditionally associated with the PC to telephones, such as accessing collaboration and web applications from desk and mobile phones.
"The Combination of BroadSoft Xtended and LiteScape's product offerings will enable service providers to add value, increase market share, generate more revenue and differentiate services from their competitors," said Farzad Naimi, CEO of LiteScape. "We look forward to working with BroadSoft to help their customers realize the benefits of our UC applications."
"LiteScape is a proven provider of innovative unified communications solutions, such as its one-touch WebEx conferencing," said Michael Lauricella, director of BroadSoft Xtended. "OnCast integrated with BroadWorks is an excellent example of the productivity enhancing solutions that can be found in the Xtended Marketplace."
With BroadSoft Xtended and OnCast, you extend the power of your enterprise infrastructure-directories, web conferencing, customer-relationship management, office applications, e-mail, PBXs- to your phones and computers. Thanks to our mashups and other solutions integrated with BroadWorks features, enterprises and vertical industries will run their businesses more efficiently, streamlining collaboration, customer service, and operational workflows. Increase productivity and corporate agility, as these solutions make the connection between the disparate components of your technology environment, enhancing the value of each. And it's all possible-not by discarding your multi-vendor environment-but by capitalizing on it. The real-world Applications of Unified Communications are here: it's Time to Make the Connection.
