WYDE Voice and Podference.com Release Integrated
Los Angeles, CA (April 1, 2009) - WYDE Voice, winner of the prestigious VON Top Innovator Award, for its high quality, high capacity conferencing bridges, has partnered with Podference.com, a cost-effective conferencing solution provider on a new product that integrates the highly scalable and flexible WYDE Voice conferencing bridge with Podference.com's fully automated podcasting and syndication teleconferencing software. The joint solution allows the moderator of a teleconference call, such as teleclasses and teleseminars, to leverage the WYDE Voice conferencing bridge features to start/stop recordings, mute individuals and place the conference into a lecture mode. This integration with Podference’s patented syndication technology automatically podcasts the recorded call to the intended audience in a secure, private and confidential manner.
“SMB’s now have a reliable, scalable, and easy-to-use syndication model to more effectively collaborate across teams even when individual members miss a live conference call” said Mike Eastman, VP of Global Sales for WYDE Voice. “Our joint offering easily lets team leaders place audio transcripts under the control of the designated target audience making it a powerful business and training tool.”
Jonathan Khorsandi, CEO of Podference.com added, “our 100% web-based software as a service (Saas) suite gives the moderator complete control of access to live calls in addition to full syndication and distribution control of recorded calls . What’s more, Podference has proven to improve accountability, productivity and focus amongst teams while lowering travel cost and total cost of ownership.”
“We’re very happy with the performance of the WYDE Voice solution and superb reliability. The unparalleled audio quality and integration benefit our clients tremendously as they repurpose the call recordings for training, education, etc” said Jonathan Khorsandi.
