Arkadin Enhances Popular ArkadinAnywhere Web Conferencing With Video and VoIP for All-in-One Collaboration

Customers to Benefit From an Easy to Use Solution for More Efficient Everyday Collaboration

PARIS, FRANCE -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- Arkadin, an NTT Communications company, and one of the largest and fastest growing Unified Communications and Collaboration Service providers, announces the launch of its next generation web conferencing solution ArkadinAnywhere. Designed to match user preferences for simplicity, performance and reliability, the simple all-in-one service offers a complete set of collaboration and sharing features, with embedded video and VoIP in addition to standard telephone conferencing.

"The video functionality gives easy one-click access to high quality visual collaboration," says Stephane Seigneurin, vice president of product management at Arkadin. "In today's mobile economy, with geographically dispersed teams and flexible work styles, it's essential to be able to easily collaborate face-to-face from anywhere for the most productive meetings."

First introduced in 2006, the SaaS-based ArkadinAnywhere enjoys revenue growth of 29 percent, consistently outperforming the industry average. "We're confident this solution will drive even greater momentum among businesses of any size that need a simple all-inclusive solution that is easy to deploy with minimum training for fast adoption and a high ROI," continued Mr. Seigneurin.

Highlights:
ArkadinAnywhere offers a complete conferencing ecosystem for an excellent user experience.

  • Integrated hybrid audio makes meetings always accessible, whether participants are at their desks, on the move or out of the moderator's company network. Internal and external guests can attend the same conference using telephone and online audio simultaneously. Thanks to access via Arkadin phone conferencing, users benefit from crystal-clear and stable communication with no latency or risk of audio degradation, regardless of the number of guests as network constraints are avoided. Hybrid audio delivers a double benefit: telecom cost reduction from VoIP via ArkadinAnywhere and high quality audio from PSTN conferencing, resulting in more productive and cost-efficient day-to-day collaborations.

  • Ergonomic interface and intuitive features enable easy, one-click sharing of entire screens for viewing documents, presentations or applications. The Arkadin Lounge self-care portal offers seamless meeting management.

  • Mobile options are provided for participating in meetings on the go through native applications or the Arkadin Mobile site, with screens optimized for smart phones or tablets. Video and VoIP are available through Arkadin Mobile in iOS, with Android soon to follow.

ArkadinAnywhere is delivered as a service, on demand in 18 languages for instant access from web browsers without any downloads. Arkadin's robust, worldwide telecommunications infrastructure guarantees the highest quality of service, performance and scalability. Local customer service and technical support is available via embedded chat console or from Arkadin's live customer service, 24/7.
