Siracom, a communications solutions VAD, has been appointed as a European distributor for web conferencing appliance vendor RHUB’s TurboMeeting appliances. Siracom, which distributes both wired and wireless solutions, will focus on opening up the European market for RHUB’s solutions. RHUB reckons that its appliances are suitable for all customers from SMEs through to large corporations.
Larry Dorie, chief executive at RHUB, said: “We are very excited to have Siracom join our channel team as it’s a key step in developing the UK and European market for our solutions. Europe is a huge and largely untapped market for web conferencing products and services, and we offer solutions that make it easy for VARs to add value to the sale.”
The partnership will focus on RHUB’s TurboMeeting system. This solution is provided as an appliance, enabling companies to deploy secure web conference, remote support, remote accessand remote desktop without incurring ongoing service charges.
Rob Leggett, sales director at Siracom, said: “RHUB’s TurboMeeting appliances make it very easy for organizations to make web conferencing available to many employees without having to worry about recurring costs. TurboMeeting adds a new dimension to phone calls and telephone conferences, allowing people to ‘meet on line’ sharing their desktops and applications. It gives a competitive edge, enabling sales people and business managers to spread their message faster and more accurately, to a wider audience, at less cost. We expect high demand in the coming year.”
With RHUB’s on-premise web conferencing appliances the organization owns and controls the complete Web conferencing system, both hardware and software. This increases security and performance.
TurboMeeting also offers full ‘universal attendance’ capability, where any attendee with a browser, regardless of operating system, can join a meeting with no download required. This extends participation to mobile devices, locked down desktops, and devices behind the most tightly restricted firewalls.
