San Jose, CA (Vocus) December 22, 2008
RHUB Communications, Inc. (RHUB), a premier provider of Web conferencing solutions, is pleased to announce the signing of a partnership with the Social Technology provider InfoNeedle, Inc., the parent of SemiNeedle (http://www.semineedle.com ), a conference portal for collaborative workshops for the electronics and semiconductor industry. This partnership builds upon the success of RHUB’s partnership with Central Desktop (http://www.centraldesktop.com ), utilizing RHUB’s TurboMeeting Web conferencing appliances, and is establishing RHUB as the ideal interactive solution for real-time, synchronous collaboration.
Central Desktop is emerging as a premier site for Social Technology for Business, based in large part on their integration with RHUB Web conferencing solutions. As Central Desktop expands its offerings to support larger teams, RHUB’s TurboMeeting is ideally suited, with its cost-effective, scalable Web conferencing solutions.
“RHUB’s TurboMeeting integration with Central Desktop provides us with outstanding Social Technology capabilities,” said Isaac Garcia, CEO of Central Desktop. “Our opportunities are rapidly expanding, and we are looking forward to supporting increasingly larger teams with TurboMeeting.”
With the SemiNeedle partnership, RHUB’s Web conferencing solutions now serve the industry-specific collaboration needs of the electronics and semiconductor supply chain. SemiNeedle represents a new breed of Social Technology for Business by combining asynchronous and synchronous collaborative capabilities with industry specific features and domain expertise.
“Synchronous collaboration is a key component to supply chain coordination,” said Robert Petrossian, President of InfoNeedle. “Coupled with collaborative workspaces, it saves time and the expense of business travel, and fosters collaboration and sharing with customers and suppliers alike.”
“We are very excited to have SemiNeedle join our partnership program,” said Larry Dorie, CEO of RHUB. “SemiNeedle’s market focus makes them an ideal partner for RHUB. “Real-time business collaboration is one of today’s most rapidly growing applications, and Social Technology for Business is an ideal framework to deploy RHUB’s TurboMeeting for collaborative Web conferencing.”
