Hosted Unified Comms provider, thevoicefactory (tvf) has developed its industry first Virtual Meeting Room – a cloud-based unified communications system bringing together all essential communication services on any device. Virtual Meeting Room integrates instant messaging, presence, content, voice and video calling in real-time to the desktop (PC/MAC), tablet and smartphone, enabling true flexible working with no compromise on quality, access to data or service.

Virtual Meeting Room is an open system enabling users to communicate across platforms, for example Skype to UC-One. Without having to invest in new infrastructure, businesses can increase productivity through enhanced collaboration and fast access to information, ameliorating customer service with an easy to use and manage, non-proprietary system.

Virtual Meeting Room provides first class travel to any destination in the world in seconds, enabling employees to convene with colleagues, associates and customers using any device and application. The workplace does not have to be about where we go, but what we do.”

• Video Calling – initiate or accept video calls on your laptop, video-enabled phone, smartphone, and tablet for more effective, face-to-face communications
