SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – June 4, 2015 – Voxbone today reported a 12 percent increase in conferencing provider customers, and supported 43 percent more call volume (in minutes) for these customers thus far in 2015, compared to the same period last year. Voxbone is consistently gaining traction in the segment due to its high-quality dial-in numbers (also known as DIDs), as well as its WebRTC-to-SIP service, which enables providers to implement click-to-join features without the complex software development or network investment typically associated with WebRTC. Voxbone expects growth to continue in this segment, especially given Future Market Insights’ recent prediction that the web conferencing market will grow from $1.8 billion in 2012 to $2.88 billion by 2017.
Award-winning conferencing provider, LoopUp, underscores this growth as the latest customer to integrate Voxbone services. LoopUp offers a seamless, stress-free conferencing service that allows its customers to create an invite, join a call, and share content in a few clicks. LoopUp alerts the host when their first guest joins, shows the attendee list and who is speaking, and lets users share screens with one click. By leveraging Voxbone’s DIDs for international dial-in numbers, LoopUp offers carrier-grade call quality for its customers from more places around the world, without paying long distance or per-minute fees.
After seeing the benefits of Voxbone’s DID numbers, LoopUp also became an early adopter of Voxbone’s WebRTC-to-SIP service, and is currently trialing it. The integration allows LoopUp to leverage Voxbone’s enhanced WebRTC service. Furthermore, because Voxbone routes WebRTC calls over its private global backbone instead of the public Internet, LoopUp can offer users added QoS and security.
“LoopUp has proven to be particularly valuable with professional services firms, such as legal and financial services organizations, which place a lot of value on high QoS and security for the services they use,” said Steve Flavell, co-CEO of LoopUp. “We selected Voxbone because they deliver the high quality service our customers expect, which goes hand-in-hand with our mission to bring less painful, more productive conferencing experiences to organizations.”
“Although the web conferencing industry is ready for immense growth, there are still barriers that providers need to address before their solutions become available everywhere,” said Itay Rosenfeld, CEO of Voxbone. “We are working hard to offer providers like LoopUp with all the tools they need to expand their business, from international dial-in numbers to WebRTC-based click-to-join features.”
LoopUp makes collaboration stress-free by putting users comfortably in control of their meetings. Its intuitive design makes sending an invite, joining a call and sharing content as simple as a few clicks. LoopUp helps over 1800 enterprises worldwide to achieve a less painful, more secure and more productive meeting experience. Industry leaders like Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, BT and Cable & Wireless Communications have chosen to distribute LoopUp technology to their customers.
