New functionality allows users to easily add 25-person face-to-face video and screen sharing while collaborating in Teambox
Teambox, the cloud-based company redefining collaboration and business communications, today announced the addition of high-definition video conferencing and screen sharing. This capability, offered on desktops, mobile devices and tablets, combined with Teambox’s robust collaboration platform, enables real-time, face-to-face communication through an easy-to-use interface at no additional cost.
As more companies leverage remote workers, the need for collaboration technology is growing at an unprecedented rate. Businesses understand that face-to-face communication is extremely important, driving demand for enterprise-grade solutions. A global survey conducted by Wainhouse Research and Polycom revealed that 94 percent of enterprise users believe video conferencing increases efficiency and productivity.
However, modern, high-quality video conferencing is extremely expensive with monthly subscriptions often starting at $49 per person per month, or requiring expensive hardware. To meet the need for an easy-to-use, affordable video tool, Teambox is announcing the first video conferencing solution fully integrated within a collaboration suite.
Key features include:
- HD face-to-face video and HD screen sharing
- Up to 25 simultaneous participants
- Desktop, mobile and tablet support (iOS and Android)
- Seamless support for iCal, Outlook and Google calendar
- No ID required to join meetings
- Group and private text chat
- Video recording
Pricing and Availability
Available today, Teambox Video Conferencing will be included in all Teambox free and paid accounts at no additional cost for the next 60 days. After this promotional period, video conferencing will continue to be included with paid plans.
