With One, Zoom unifies its collaboration portfolio

The video conferencing specialist is consolidating its collaboration platform within the Zoom One offering. It includes video, chat, interactive whiteboard and calling. Different rate plans are offered.

The move from an application to a platform is happening for Zoom, which has just unveiled several developments in this direction. For example, the publisher presented Zoom One, which brings together chat, telephony, meeting and whiteboard functionalities in one special environment. Users of this solution can access Zoom’s collaboration and communication tools and perform a variety of actions, such as making phone or video calls from an instant message or collaborating on a whiteboard from a desktop, Zoom, or meeting room.

In a statement announcing the launch, Greg Tomb, president of Zoom Video Communications since June 7, said the introduction of a solution like Zoom One clearly marks the evolution from the meeting application to a communications platform. “By bringing chat, telephony, meetings, whiteboard and more into one package, we can provide our customers with easy-to-manage solutions so they can focus on the business issues that matter most.” tomb. †
