PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Sep 25, 2013) - Arkadin, one of the largest and fastest growing collaboration service providers, with a full suite of cloud-based conferencing and Unified Communications services, today announced support for the new Adobe® Connect™ 9.1 web conferencing platform. Integrated with Arkadin's premium audio conferencing, the industry's most advanced and feature-rich web conferencing platform powers mission-critical solutions for all business needs. Arkadin has global service operations in 32 countries to meet the deployment needs of customers anywhere in the world.
The complete Adobe Connect solution delivered "as a Service" by Arkadin includes three modules that meet specific business requirements:
- Adobe Connect for Web Meetings for highly collaborative and rich interactions that go beyond traditional screen sharing: It includes chat, polls, breakout rooms and custom layouts and pods for integrating additional functionality, such as social media. Teams can increase productivity dramatically while substantially reducing the time and costs associated with in-person meetings.
- Adobe Connect for Webinars for staging live and on-demand virtual events: Marketing and Sales teams have everything at their disposal for driving effective lead generation and promotional campaigns to target new customers or launch new products. Real time analytics measure participant engagement and provide rich graphical data for rating the effectiveness of campaign content.
- Adobe Connect for eLearning for effortlessly creating, deploying and managing interactive training courses. HR and other corporate departments have easy, yet powerful tools to deliver virtual courses for employees, customers and partners no matter where they are in the world and from virtually any mobile device -- as if they were in the same room. Courses can be viewed live or on-demand for self-paced trainings.
Each solution features the same cutting-edge Adobe Connect technology platform in a highly ergonomic, intuitive and secure manner. The new 9.1 version has advanced functions optimized for mobility and for increased productivity. Adobe Connect recordings can now be converted to MP4 format, and streamed from the cloud for access across any mobile device, with the same high quality imaging available from PCs.
Unlike other web conferencing services, Adobe Connect delivers complete solutions by integrating with core Adobe technologies, from leading content authoring tools for eLearning, to web experience management and analytics tools within the Adobe Marketing Cloud. In addition, Adobe Connect enables feature-rich mobile clients for iOS and Android; persistent meetings and content for instant collaboration, and multi-point video conferencing with unlimited webcam streams for life-like personal interactions.
San Francisco-based Tesser, a branding agency with high-profile global clients, credits the advanced feature set for enabling them to present their signature big-picture branding more effectively: "Adobe Connect makes our meetings more efficient and productive," says Account Manager B. Todi. "We shave minutes off every meeting to speed up decision making. And we have theater and magic in presenting our designs."
Arkadin's premium audio conferencing is integrated for a complete all-in-one solution. Attendees can join via VoiP for easy one-click collaboration from any internet connection, or through traditional phone connections for stable, crystal-clear audio, which is especially relevant for large conferences.
"The combination of our cutting-edge collaboration software with Arkadin's premium audio delivers a complete and fully integrated solution to meet the web conferencing and training needs of any organization," says Guillaume Privat, Director, Adobe Connect. "We're thrilled to work with Arkadin and believe their worldwide customer service capabilities will help in rapid adoption for customers."
Arkadin's SaaS delivery model and global end-to-end service offering provides businesses with multiple benefits, including customer training and 24/7 client support in local languages, and fast, scalable hassle-free deployments that deliver a high ROI.
