Orlando, FL, March 2, 2016GENBAND, a leading provider of real time communications (RTC) software solutions, today announced that it will feature multiple market-disrupting solutions at Enterprise Connect, March 7-10 in Orlando.  Featured demonstrations include Kandy Wrappers, pre-packaged RTC apps that offer rapid and cost effective delivery of customer engagement services from any website without having to replace existing contact centers or phone systems, and GENBAND’s innovative Smart Office clients, which feature Omni technology, a patent pending combination of WebRTC, container and real time services. These new Smart Office apps deliver a modern Unified Communications (UC) client experience across desktop and mobile devices without the cost or complexity of constant updates.  Additionally, this same technology can be used to integrate GENBAND’s carrier-grade UC services with Skype for Business and Google Apps.

These innovations complement GENBAND’s comprehensive suite of RTC solutions, which can deployed on premises, in the cloud or in combination. Other featured solutions include Cloud UC, legacy Nortel phone system migrations, enterprise session border controllers (SBCs), mobility and embedded communications. Unlike traditional premises-based and cloud competitors, GENBAND solutions are standards-based, precluding proprietary lock-ins and inflated endpoint expenses.

“We’re illustrating to the market how we can dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of delivering UC applications to enterprise employees and their customers,” said Patrick Joggerst, EVP, Global Sales and Marketing at GENBAND. “We believe enterprises are extremely overdue for more substantive benefits from the intersection of the cloud, the web and real time communications.”

Joggerst added, “Our Kandy APIs and Kandy Wrappers make it far more practical and easy to embed communications into existing business processes – where they drive the most value. And our new Smart Office UC apps make distribution and ongoing support of multi-device clients far less expensive. These innovations break down real barriers and create a demonstrative impact on enterprises’ ability to justify their communication investments. ”
