Redwood City, Calif. — April 16, 2015
Gartner’s “Cool Vendors in Unified Communications, 2015” report focused on five major players, highlighting Redbooth for enhancing the collaboration experience between employees, and with clients, while accelerating innovations in video, workflow context and the workplace.
Redbooth, the real-time workplace collaboration and communication platform, announced that it has been named a “Cool Vendor” in the Gartner “Cool Vendors in Unified Communications, 2015” report, published on April 15, 2015.
This year, Gartner’s “Cool Vendors in Unified Communications, 2015” report focuses on major players who are enhancing the collaboration experience between employees, and with clients, while accelerating innovations in video, workflow context and the workplace. Redbooth is one of 5 companies honored with the distinction in the report for its real-time communication and collaboration platform that offers a visual representation of both ‘projects’ and a persistent team workspace, making it intuitive and easy to use.
“Company-wide collaboration drives progress and productivity. Without a strong collaboration infrastructure, key initiatives can falter and engagement diminishes. We work to empower enterprises to collaborate and communicate in a way that keeps teams focused and working together, regardless of geography or time zone,” said Dan Schoenbaum, CEO of Redbooth. “We’re honored to be recognized by Gartner, one of the world’s most respected technology research firms, as a Cool Vendor for innovating in the unified communications space.”
According to Gartner, Redbooth gives teams a way to manage and track their work in a customizable manner that drives accountability. Users can communicate with colleagues using context-specific conversations, enterprise chat, or built-in HD video conferencing. With integrations to applications like Box Enterprise, MS Project, Outlook, Sharepoint, Dropbox, Evernote, Okta, and others, companies can leverage their current technology and accelerate onboarding to Redbooth.
Recently, Redbooth announced their new Project Reports, which collect and create visualizations of work management data. The new reporting provides managers, team leaders, and other users with insight on performance and distribution of tasks. Ideal for fast-moving, self-directed teams, these reports make it easier to optimize the allocation of work, forecast more effectively, and prevent important aspects of a project from falling through the cracks.
To serve highly regulated industries like finance and healthcare, as well as security-minded organizations, Redbooth also recently released an on-premise version, Redbooth Private Cloud, that includes secure enterprise chat, user access provisioning, team collaboration workspaces, and business application integration. Installed by companies on their own hardware, it enables them to have a collaboration and communication solution while meeting the compliance, security, and data privacy requirements of highly regulated industries. Since security and privacy are top-of-mind concerns for these companies, Private Cloud is built to work behind firewalls and is easy for IT managers to set up, with full control over installation, data storage and security.
