Popular services, Fuze Meeting and Fuze Messenger will be released via Open API to the worldwide developer community to create new, innovative mobile and web collaboration applications

FuzeBox, the company that transformed iPads and Android tablets into virtual conference rooms with their web conferencing app, today announces it has opened its platform, via FuzeBox Ignite, and released new Open Application Programming Interfaces (Open APIs) Program for third–party and independent software developers around the world. FuzeBox Ignite opens the company’s previously proprietary technologies allowing developers to create a new wave of mobile and web collaboration applications.

The company’s popular Fuze Meeting and Fuze Messenger services, which are used by 2.5 million users, will be made available through the FuzeBox Ignite platform and will allow for the integration of the Fuze Meeting and Fuze Messenger services into a wide range of third party products and websites, signaling a shift in the way people use collaboration and conferencing services in a mobile world. Under the new FuzeBox Ignite API program, the company is also announcing alliances with top tier companies such as Thomson Reuters.

“FuzeBox’s Ignite platform helped us to extend our collaboration tools across mobile networks – making our community accessible wherever customers are,” states Eran Barak, SVP Global Head of Community Strategy for Thomson Reuters. “FuzeBox’s technology and team have been of great support to our efforts in the mobile space.”

Utilizing lightweight and easy to implement JavaScript, the FuzeBox Ignite platform brings the power of Fuze Meeting and Fuze Messenger to website owners with minimal effort. What previously required a team of IT professionals to build and manage, is now easily integrated into any product, application or web service by anyone looking to integrate a rich collaboration experience. Through the FuzeBox Ignite program, FuzeBox will provide developers with technical documentation, software development kits (SDKs), sample source code, reference guides, and “virtual sandboxes” for testing new and innovative applications. A developer forum designed to spur collaboration between FuzeBox engineers and developers will also be an integral component of the Ignite program.
