RHUB signs agreement with D&H Distributing to expand channel access to resellers
Santa Clara, CA, June 17,2008 — RHUB Communications, Inc. (RHUB), a premier provider of Web conferencing appliances, announced the expansion of its US reseller channel program with the appointment of D&H Distributing. D&H is one of the largest distributors of computers and peripheral devices in the United States, and has been on the leading edge of technology and innovation for 90 years. Under the agreement, D&H will offer RHUB’s on-premise TurboMeeting Web conferencing appliance, configured with the Company’s proprietary TurboMeeting software and other key Web conference applications.
TurboMeeting supports both fully interactive and “view only” attendees in the same Web conference. Users can share information from one computer or among many, and TurboMeeting is both PC and Mac-compatible. Users can also remotely control and support other computers and access one computer from another. TurboMeeting extends real-time collaboration beyond conventional Web conferencing solutions by combining multiple applications:
– Web conferencing: Web-based interactive meetings
– Remote support: remotely support PC and Mac users
– Remote Access: remote access to computers at home or office from anywhere, anytime
– Web Seminars: non-download results in quick (in seconds), easy (URL only) and the most reliable way for large groups of attendees to join meetings
“D&H is always working to deliver innovative networking products to its resellers,” said Rob Eby, Vice President of Purchasing at D&H. “We want to help those resellers assemble better solutions, ones that create more effective ways for their end users to conduct business. RHUB has a strong solution that will let VARs help their SMB customers build more sophisticated communication infrastructures.”
“The primary factor driving RHUB’s reseller channel expansion is to reach the small and medium size resellers who support their customers remotely,” said Larry Dorie, CEO of RHUB Communications. “TurboMeeting helps resellers improve customer satisfaction and enhances their ability to demonstrate products, while driving down costs.”
The market for Web conferencing services and products is projected to grow from $1 billion in 2006 to close to $1.5 billion by 2010, according to Andy Nilssen, Senior Analyst & Partner with Wainhouse Research. “Fueling this growth is the expansion of Web conferences beyond scheduled to ad-hoc meetings,” said Nilssen. “This requires users to have access to a web conferencing resource that is on tap at all times with little-to-no incremental cost per use. RHUB’s TurboMeeting fits this model well.”
