NetFortris™ Enhances UC Client Portfolio with GENBAND’s Innovative Omni Technology, Enabling Ubiquitous Access Free of Constant App Updates

ORLANDO, FL­—Enterprise Connect—March 7, 2016GENBAND, a leading provider of real time communications solutions, and NetFortris, a leader in secure cloud-based communication solutions today unveiled new clients for the NetFortris Unified Communications (UC) solution. Based on GENBAND’s Smart Office 3.1 with next generation Omni technology, the NetFortris solution gives customers a rich UC client experience without requiring users and IT staff to manage constant software updates across multiple devices. The enhanced solution leverages WebRTC (Web Real Time Communications) and client container technology to deliver voice, video, IM, presence and collaboration capabilities to both desktop and mobile devices. The clients are an enhancement to the GENBAND solutions NetFortris deployed last year, offering customers a more consistent, intuitive experience that is always up to date.

“Our customers love the anywhere access of our unified communications solution so much that many have access from multiple devices,” said Tom Swayze, Chief Technical Officer at NetFortris.  “Typically this has required different client experiences and regular software updates to keep up with changing services and devices. We are excited to be an early adopter of GENBAND’s next generation Smart Office solutions because we can now provide the same experience across devices and offer more services to our customers.  The new solution will save my team and our customers’ real time and money.”

“We’re pleased to help NetFortris provide their customers with the most compelling experience in cloud-based unified communications available today,” said Carl Baptiste, Senior Vice President of Unified Communications Solutions at GENBAND. “By leveraging our enhanced Smart Office solution, NetFortris customers gain access to the most modern UC clients in the industry with anywhere access to voice, video conference, screen sharing and other business communications services. Delivered via our cloud-based infrastructure, these advanced productivity tools are immediately available, without any costly and time-consuming investment in new hardware.”

Swapan Nandi, Senior Vice President of Products at NetFortris added, “GENBAND’s new Smart Office clients have a WebRTC core that can dynamically update the user experience without requiring users to download new software from an app store or IT server.  With this enhanced solution there is no need for IT staff to constantly request that employees update software and users will always have the latest and greatest experience – from all their devices. This type of innovation from GENBAND is exactly what we need to meet the needs of our customers.”
