Exciting New Video Meeting Opportunities
According to Stephen Rosen, the CTO of Tambourine, a company offering a fully-managed service program for maximum traffic and conversions for resorts, Vonage Meetings is very impressive. The system is intuitive, easy to use, and much more compelling than some of the other options that he has tried before.
Michael Shonholz, the Chief Revenue Officer at ARG, the company that helps businesses to make better choices for their support and IT solutions in communications, says that clients often have a hard time keeping up with the IT market.
