First Browser-Agnostic Voice and Video Calling Solution on the BroadSoft Marketplace
AGNITY, a leading provider of solutions and services to mobile and fixed line service providers, equipment manufacturers, and enterprises, and BroadSoft, Inc., the leading global provider of IP-based communications services to the telecommunications industry, today announced the addition of the AGNITY ACONYX SPIDYR Phone, a web-based and browser-independent communication solution interface, to the BroadSoft Marketplace.
The ACONYX SPIDYR Phone enables mobile video calling, multi-point conferencing, IM and presence, and video voicemail capability, from a single user interface. ACONYX SPIDYR is a web-based application, developed on a proven carrier-grade platform, which enables telecommunication service providers to offer both their business and residential subscribers an easy-to-use, cost effective voice and video calling service that does not require video equipment, a softphone, or other complex client configurations. Through this software-as-a-service offering, service providers can increase revenue and improve customer satisfaction with a comprehensive, optimized user experience.
According to Leslie Ferry, vice president, marketing, BroadSoft, Inc. “We believe the ACONYX SPIDYR Phone exemplifies the objective of the BroadSoft Marketplace, providing innovative, user focused IP-based communication applications from an online marketplace to our service provider customers.” She continued, “We are excited by the opportunity to expand our relationship with AGNITY.”
AGNITY CEO, Sanjeev Chawla, heralded the potential fruits of this offering. “This development represents a milestone in AGNITY’s relationship with BroadSoft, and the companies’ shared mission in providing BroadWorks customers with advanced software and services with which to differentiate themselves from competitors.” He added, “The hyper-competitiveness of today’s global market demands that service providers are armed with feature-rich applications like SPIDYR Phone, to eliminate barriers and address shortcomings resulting from existing soft-phone offerings, as well as reduce operating expenses.”
