How's this for a too-familiar dialog on an average business day?
“Hello? Who just joined?”
"Tom, there’s too much noise on your line, can you please mute your phone?”
“Sorry I’m late. I couldn’t find the passcode for the meeting.”
For those of us who spend all day on conference calls (like me), and as more and more of us work remotely this will be the same for many of you, it would be nice to imagine a meeting where you could see every participant by name, mute or un-mute participants’ lines from your desktop, and have the meeting dial out to your participants. Thankfully, that capability is available today with PGi audio conferencing integration to Lotus Sametime.
PGi has been integrating with IBM for some time. Their first TCSPI adaptor was launched in January 2004. Just this January they released their latest conferencing integration to Sametime 8.5, including Mute/Un-mute, Dial Out, Lock Conference, End Conference and Disconnect User. By embedding one-click access into web, video and instant messaging collaboration applications, users can escalate the meeting experience while everyone is engaged - facilitating quicker decision making and improved productivity.
