Vidtel and WBS Connect Introduce Innovative Video Calling Services

By Mariette Johnson Wharton, VP of Marketing

WBS Connect, a Colorado-based global technology services company today announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with premier video communications service provider Vidtel. Together WBS Connect and Vidtel are addressing the growing communication needs of small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with a powerful video calling service that greatly increases worker productivity while also shrinking business travel expenses. And unlike other video calling technology that can be expensive and cumbersome to implement and use, the WBS Connect and Vidtel service offers truly universal and unrestricted video calling.

The new video calling service links together any video-enabled device on any network across the globe, enabling customers to make seamless video calls to remote offices, partners and customers world-wide, easily and cost-effectively. In addition to video calling, customers can also use their robust VOIP phone to make and receive regular voice calls to anyone in the world with a telephone number (i.e., mobile, international, local and long distance calls).

“We are excited to be working with WBS Connect, a company who clearly understands the business video communications industry”, said Scott Wharton, Chief Executive Officer of Vidtel. “We believe WBS Connect has a unique perspective on how to overcome the business challenges facing small and medium-sized business. The WBS team has proven again and again that they are innovators by delivering high-definition video conferencing products over their global network IP network and we believe they are an ideal partner to help us cultivate the growing technology category of video calling.”

With the addition of video calling services to its portfolio, WBS Connect now offers a complete suite of premium and affordable Business Video Communications solutions, which also includes high-definition video conferencing and web collaboration solutions. These Business Video Communications solutions are all delivered over WBS Connect’s extensive technology framework, built throughout North America, Europe and Asia. With WBS Connect’s worldwide Internet operations and the team’s networking expertise and full-service support options, WBS Connect and Vidtel are helping businesses become competitive with a smarter approach to business communication.

“For too long small and medium-sized business have been lost in the shuffle between traditional phone service, high-end video conferencing services and low-quality PC-based video chat options,” said Scott Charter, managing partner of WBS Connect. “By working with Vidtel we are closing the gap by expanding access to robust video calling services that are the truly the future of business communications. Video phones will replace traditional phones on everyone’s desk and will help to enhance productivity and improve communication as only ‘face-to-face’ conversations that capture body language and facial expressions can.”

See a demonstration of these innovative video calling services at ITEXPO, Feb 2-4, 2009, at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Booth # 227.
