PARIS--()--Pure player in unified communications, Wimo provides a solution that is interoperable with all the communication systems of a company. Simpler and less expensive than solutions provided by major players such as Cisco or Microsoft, Com-On™ is popular with companies who cannot use Skype given its non-compliance with corporate security policies and because of it lacks integration with a company’s professional tools.
“what we have assembled into a multimedia platform is a set of software components that can support hundreds of thousands of users, since what we have integrated into Com-On is the very best carrier class Web technologies that exist today.”
Com-On™ has an incredible audio / video quality and an unmatched ease of use. Com-On™ offers all the communication / collaboration featured required by today’s most demanding business users: IP telephony, video conferencing, fast file transfer, instant messaging, screen and application sharing, conference management, presence management, unified directory access, and select internal corporate news hit retrieved from the Intranet.
For Guillaume Lautour, Partner at IDInvest, "Wimo is the perfect example of a young company that can break the oligopoly of the major providers of unified communication software solutions. Business implementations of Com-On™ to date is impressive and what we hope to see is the formation of a new world-class player in the business communication tools market."
In speaking about availability and quality of service, Antoine Vervoort, Managing Director of Wimo and former head of the Engineering at Tele2 France is confident that: "what we have assembled into a multimedia platform is a set of software components that can support hundreds of thousands of users, since what we have integrated into Com-On is the very best carrier class Web technologies that exist today.”
