FuzeBox, a company engaged in the enterprise collaboration space, was recently positioned in Gartner’s (News - Alert) 2012 Web Conferencing Magic Quadrant. Gartner recognized Fuzebox for its ability to execute on its portfolio of meetings and video conferencing solutions.

Founded in 1998, FuzeBox offers a suite of secure, scalable and cost-effective communication tools designed for businesses of all sizes. These can be fully integrated into existing business enterprise tools and applications.

Products include Fuze Meeting, Fuze Meeting with Telepresence (News - Alert) and Fuze Webinar.

FuzeBox’s mobile video conferencing solution disrupts bulky, antiquated telepresence systems that cost companies hundreds of thousands of dollars. FuzeBox is great for startups, because its offerings are less expensive and more dynamic, focused on cutting-edge technology with an unmatched user interface.

Users can collaborate face-to-face over important documents and multimedia without worrying about location, device type or network connection speed.

Startups also value reliability, security and uptime when it comes to their cloud-based collaboration software, which is why FuzeBox service is always on and will stay persistent through network and device failures.

 “It’s an honor to be recognized by Gartner and to be the only new company included in such a highly respected report on the industry,” said Jeff Cavins, CEO at FuzeBox. “We’ve seen tremendous growth this year with the release of our iPhone, PC, Android (News - Alert) and iPad apps, a $20M Series A financing round led by Index Ventures, and our launch of the first-ever native video conferencing app designed specifically for the Mac. We see the future of visual collaboration advancing across four major pillars: mobility, interoperability, scalability and integratability – and this is where we have focused our attention.”

In September, FuzeBox announced the launch of its FuzeFund, created to provide cutting-edge HD video conferencing to startup companies. The FuzeFund will offer $1.2 million worth of FuzeBox’s hosted visual collaboration solution to eligible companies for over two years.

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.
