SoundConnect Moves to Charleston, SC

In an effort to support the growth and expansion, SoundConnect, a renowned collaboration and telecommunications service provider, has moved to its new headquarters in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. The company has other offices in Boston and Chicago.

The new office is located in the heart of the historic city, at the corner of King Street and Market Street, the company said in a statement.

SoundConnect is a global provider of telecommunication technology solutions including web conferencing, audio conferencing and video conferencing, and recently added hosted PBX (News - Alert) and Google Apps to its suite of services.

After spending almost two years in Mount Pleasant, since November 2010, SoundConnect made the move to Charleston, in order to accommodate its expanding workforce and also meet the needs of an expanding clientele.

Downtown Charleston is a vibrant and growing city, and more and more businesses are making the move to the city in favor of the rising opportunities. After careful consideration and evaluation, SoundConnect decided that downtown Charleston was the ideal location to recruit the best candidates and continue to grow its client base.

“We are very excited to be part of such a fantastic city and business community. We needed additional office space to accommodate several new hires as well as for future hires planned for 2012 and 2013. With close proximity to the College of Charleston and The Citadel, I felt that the downtown Charleston location would be ideal for recruiting bright and talented recent graduates for fulltime positions as well as building our undergraduate internship program,” SoundConnect founder and CEO, Shaun Chambers noted in a statement.

In additional of having private offices and open work areas for team projects and small group meetings, the new facility has room to grow.

The new location will also help the SoundConnect employees to mix work and pleasure in right proportion, as SoundConnect’s team members are now just a short walk from local businesses and venues in the hospitable city of Charleston.

Last year, SoundConnect and Select Conferencing teamed up with Microsoft (News - Alert) Corp. to provide Microsoft Live Meeting.

How often have you had a teleconference where—because of audio-related issues—you had difficulty in conducting an important meeting? Or in some cases, not even being able to make a clear connection at all? Curtiss Singleton, Director of Sales for the Americas at Revolabs, Inc., discusses conferencing solutions that not only provide unmatched audio quality, but ones that also “cut the cord”—giving you the freedom to move around the workspace. Doug Green, Publisher of Telecom Reseller, speaks with JP Carney, President and CEO of Revolabs, about the company, the importance of audio quality in UC, the compatibility of their products with various UC platforms, and their acquisition by Yamaha after one year. They discuss how clear audio for teleconferencing is the core element of true collaboration.
