The Visual Communications Industry-Group (VCI-Group), the leading independent organization of videoconferencing end-users and vendors, in partnership with Telepresence Options, the leading publishing company in visual collaboration, has just published the first iteration of its new Visual Collaboration Industry Sourcebook. This new guide is initially intended to provide a quick and easy overview of visual collaboration solutions and providers, as well as quick links to VCI-Group resources.
The VCI-Group has also been working hard to refresh and update their programs and resources to meet the needs of today's visual collaboration users. With this in mind, the VCI-Group has partnered with Telepresence Options to create the best third-party, free, resource in the industry. The new VCI-Group Visual Collaboration Industry Sourcebook is a great start for those seeking to learn about the technology and organizations in this space.
Behind the scenes, the Sourcebook is powered by the Telepresence and Videoconferencing Catalog, a publication of Telepresence Options. For example, both guides lead to the same landing page for Cloud Based VC. The Telepresence Options web development team is constantly adding new resources and information to these category landing pages, such as relevant news and Twitter feeds and even free third party feature comparison charts, such as the new Cloud Videoconferencing Interop Services Chart.
“Expect a lot more to come from this new VCI-Group and Telepresence Options partnership,” says David Maldow, Industry Analyst and Telepresence Options Catalog Editor. “Telepresence Options will soon be adding additional comparison charts to cover other segments, while the VCI-Group expects to improve and expand their user benefit programs. In addition, both organizations are working together to gather, collect and index relevant information to be listed and included in the Sourcebook, making it an even better resource for today's savvy visual collaboration program managers.”
