According to T3i Group LLC, its new "Collaboration Tactics" database can help businesses properly deploy collaboration services and products in order to increase productivity and efficiency, lower overall costs, shorten time to market and improve employee morale.
The new product is part of T3i Group's family of Unified Communications databases, which includes the Unified Communications Client Comparison (UC3) Tool and TelecomTactics.
The initial release of the Collaboration Tactics database helps enterprises and small-and-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) review the wide range of collaboration choices available today, and provides unbiased coverage of 120+ product/service offerings from more than 30 leading vendors, including AT&T, BT Conferencing, Cisco, InterCall, Polycom, Tandberg and Verizon. Subscribers may view conferencing service offers, specifically audio, Web and video, and a full range of videoconferencing systems, including desktop/personal, room/group and video telepresence.
"The Collaboration Tactics tool will allow businesses to understand and plan for collaboration products and services that meet their organizations' needs. Knowing the vendors, their product features and capabilities, will save users both time and expense when exploring myriad offers available today," said Don Stuart, Market Research Specialist at T3i Group and architect of the Collaboration Tactics database. He added, "Determining an organization's needs and comparing vendor offers in a side-by-side, apples-to-apples format will enable a business to concentrate on those vendors that best meet its needs. The vendor price comparisons help clarify potential return on investment and total cost of ownership prior to deployment."
Commented TelecomTactics Analyst, Sandra Gustavsen, "Manufacturers, sales channels and enterprises have been relying on TelecomTactics for nearly 20 years, and they count on our team for accurate and unbiased descriptions and comparative reports on hundreds of telephony systems and applications, as well as for valued call-in support. We are excited to evolve with our customers by adding a new Tactics program focused on video collaboration, a key technology area and one of the fastest-growing communications markets today."
Subscribers to the Collaboration Tactics database also have access to white papers and tutorial reports that guide them through the different service, product and technology decisions essential to successful deployment of collaboration capabilities. Short vendor profiles provide perspectives on each vendor's product and service collaboration offerings.
"The market is evolving rapidly. Vendor, product and service information in these database tools will be updated regularly when new features and capabilities are introduced. New vendors entering the market and current vendors introducing new products or services will be incorporated in the database so that we can be a 'one stop shop' for collaboration technology, vendor and functional comparisons," Stuart said. "More areas of coverage also will be added, including video conferencing multipoint control units (MCUs), audio conferencing systems, desktop (software, server-based) enterprise video conferencing systems, premise (software/server/browser) based Web conferencing and more."
