Making a better cloud collaboration experience

Everyday conference calling frustrations are well known: not knowing who’s on the call or who’s speaking, background noise, difficulties sharing your screen, to name just a few. However, as more enterprises shift to the cloud, there’s a long-awaited opportunity to improve the way business people collaborate.

For this reason, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and LoopUp have come together in a technology partnership to deliver a high quality, enterprise-grade cloud collaboration solution.

Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has selected LoopUp’s product for how it addresses familiar conferencing frustrations and brings a new level of visibility, security and control to everyday remote meetings. The product also leads users to a richer collaboration experience, without compromising on ease of use.

The new solution is expected to be made available by the end of Q1 2014.
