Singapore: Tata Communications (NYSE: TCL), announced today that it has expanded its conferencing portfolio by acquiring the rights to offer GlobalMeet® India, a new audio conferencing service ideal for India-based enterprises, as well as companies with strong business ties to the Indian subcontinent. GlobalMeet® India addresses the growing demands of the global business sector for a high-quality, easy-to-use audio conferencing solution that is both tailored to the India market and integrated into a global solution.
The GlobalMeet® India service offers both domestic toll-free and a network of local numbers in more than 18 major business centres across India. This is seamlessly integrated with International toll-free access from 30 countries worldwide and enables customers to significantly reduce business costs with local access numbers. Additionally, a significantly broader base of customers can now easily utilise the service, which was virtually unavailable to a number of users who were unable to access international direct dial facilities through their phone service.
“India is a burgeoning marketplace which represents a key area of opportunity for audio conferencing,” said Abid Qadiri, Vice President, Data Center and Application Services, Tata Communications. “The GlobalMeet® India service is applicable to an extremely wide range of enterprise companies and executives in various areas of business including sales, investor relations, and human resources and training, which are conducting business within India.”
GlobalMeet® India’s integrated solution allows for simplified billing, dependable cost reporting, the ability to contract in India while billing in Indian currency and providing world-class customer support along with a trusted account team. As the conference bridge is located domestically, GlobalMeet® India eliminates problems relating to quality, including delays and voice latencies, due to inconsistent fiber and satellite paths and dropped calls.
“Tata Communications is offering GlobalMeet® India to answer the growing demand for high-quality conferencing services at competitive price points,” said John Landau, senior vice president, Global Managed Services, Tata Communications. “This best-in-class global solution creates a reservation-less conferencing platform that is easy to use while enabling enterprises to increase productivity and reducing international travel costs.”
GlobalMeet® India is just one component of Tata Communications’ enterprise portfolio to enable efficient and effective collaboration for customers. In addition to audio and web conferencing services, business-class messaging provides customers with a robust and secure email platform.
