IMCCA Webinar Explores Strategies for Unified Communication

April 16, 2013 | Telepresence Options


April 24 Event will assist Participants in Gaining Competency in Understanding and Designing Streamlined Communication

Syosset, NY (April 15, 2013) - IMCCA, the non-profit industry association for conferencing and unified collaboration technologies, is sponsoring a webinar for organizations interested in understanding more about Unified Communications (UC). This webinar is being hosted by West IP communications.

Scheduled for April 24, 2013, the webinar will outline strategies for blending technology with organizational needs and structure in order to take that step toward more streamlined internal communication. The webinar, Transforming the Way We Meet and Communicate through Unified Communications, will be led by industry veteran Dr. S. Ann Earon, Chairperson Emeritus, IMCCA. Speakers include Mike Brandofino, EVP Video and Unified Communications, AVI-SPL, Bob Romano, Vice President, Global Marketing, Radvision, An Avaya Company, Bob Wise, EVP, West IP Communications,

According to Carol Zelkin, Executive Director, IMCCA, Unified Communications has become the default term for next-generation, IP-enabled enterprise communications. It comprises everything from video to audio to text and across a variety of styles including internal networks, mobile devices and web browsers.

She says, "Organizations can no longer relegate video, telephony, instant messaging or collaboration applications to siloed functions. Rather, they must be viewed and planned as part of a UC strategy. This webinar will offer tactics that can help participants break through some of the barriers that often inhibit a plan's success."

Content for the 60 minute webinar will include:

  • Understand the value of real time unified communication
  • Learn about technology features and application benefits
  • Explore strategies and guidelines to help ensure implementation success

Ms. Zelkin adds that two additional webinars are scheduled for May 21 and September 10. How Mobility and Mobile Video is Changing the World is slated for the May 21 webinar and Visual Collaboration in the Cloud will be the topic for the September 10 webinar.
