The All Software MCU - Avistar C3 Conference
Get Started with the Avistar C3 platform

"Interoperability [is] a key theme for successful business-to-business videoconferencing. End users [that associate] videoconferencing with a quantitative ROI and achieving a best-in-class status [are] more likely to have room-based solutions that also [connect] to desktop or PC-based video solutions and the ability to support interoperability between multiple vendor solutions."

- Aberdeen Group

Industry analysts like Gartner and Frost & Sullivan suggest you don’t have to settle for inferior functionality in any area of a UC suite. While native voice, email, and IM capabilities may meet requirements, videoconferencing has been another story. You may be looking to integrate a superior videoconferencing capability into your UC solution. Or, your organization may be looking to fully unify inter-company communications by getting users to embrace the videoconferencing capability of the unified communications system already installed. The analysts point out that a multi-vendor approach may be the best way to accomplish this.

If you’d like to know how to get started give us a call. We’ll show you how Avistar’s C3 platform provides an ideal path to carry out that strategy and achieve best of breed videoconferencing for your unified communication system.
