Rob Hennelly, Product Manager at Solgari added, “Following on from our recent release of Compliant SMS, Solgari Forum is next key product to come off our R&D roadmap. It is a highly flexible WebRTC meeting service that is automatically available to existing customers as part of their Cloud Business Communications or Cloud Contact Centre bundles. It is also available to new customers as a starter product if so required. Web meetings are just one component of the digital communications requirements and Forum is designed to make meetings much easier to set up and join while also addressing the market requirement for compliance that is not addressed by existing web meeting services.”

Vance Harris, CTO at Solgari noted, “We believe WebRTC will be a dominant communications technology in years to come and have designed Solgari Forum, and the sister product Solgari Connect, with this vision in mind. Forum works perfectly with all our existing Telephony, SMS & Chat services and brings our customers to a position where they can just offer whatever communication channel their customers demand of them, all delivered on a single integrated cloud software platform. We have a strong conviction, based on our customer and market experience that all communications will be run this way within 5 years.”
