Conferencing, Burgers & Fireworks!

Sonexis Carries Momentum into the 2nd Half of 2014:

Whether you’re cooking out on the grill, catching up on some much needed sleep or laying out by the pool, Sonexis wants to thank everyone who has helped make this year both successful and productive! We are thrilled at the momentum the Telecommunications Industry has had these past 6-Months and we are confident that it will stay that way throughout the rest of the year. We wish safe travels and fun times for all during this celebration of our Country’s Independence Day. We are appreciative of our Customers’ continued support of our solution the ConferenceManager™ and our strong network of Partners who consistently do a wonderful job of getting the Sonexis name and brand out to the industry to help organizations save both time and resources.

Sonexis has several new enhancements pending release in these next few months and we know and trust their impact on the market will be a positive one. If the past is any indication of the future, more and more organizations are asking that their employees, partners and customers avoid spending time traveling, instead to have more time to communicate and collaborate via telecommunications. Technological advances have made this choice more cost-effective and viable while all signs indicate that these technologies will continue to improve, driving home a Rapid ROI and low TCO.

Happy Independence Day!

We ask that everyone enjoy this holiday and maybe during a commercial or while waiting for the hot dogs on the grill, keep Sonexis in mind for your conferencing! The ConferenceManager2 is engineered to provide the highest quality audio collaboration and is designed to integrate tightly with industry-leading Unified Communication solutions. The CM2 and accompanying collaboration software enable greater productivity for mobile knowledge workers while simplifying meetings and driving decision making.

Happy 4th of July from Sonexis Technology!

Sonexis Reveals Hidden Feature List

  
  
  

Sonexis Behind the Curtain Features (Vol. 1)

Sonexis Conferencing Solutions

The Sonexis ConferenceManager™ has a long list of out-of-the box features that have become an expected set of functionality in the collaboration space (e.g., Audio Recording, Host & Participant Dial Out, Breakout Sessions, etc.). In addition to this set of features the ConferenceManager also carries a long list of “behind the curtain” functionality. These are not only unique to the industry but are also a culmination of custom development that we’ve done for customers over the years that is now rolled into the product for all of our customers moving forward.

Audio and web conference, Conference Bridge, Audio conferencing, video conferencing

Orphan Call Detection & Mitigation:

Unlike most traditional service providers, the Sonexis solution comes with orphan caller protection. Whereby, if a conference has been initiated and only one participant has joined, whether it's a VoIP or POTS connection, the Sonexis system will recognize that there is just one connection and send a pre-determined number of prompts asking the caller if they want to remain on the line, to press any key.

Unique to Sonexis, is that if no key was entered, we'll send a tear down signal all the way to the PBX for port reclamation – a common problem with many SIP based systems is that the tear down only disconnects that remaining connection, but it does not free up that port on the PBX.

Most conferencing service providers (CSP) do not come with this protection and so the customer isn’t made aware of this, if at all, unless they analyze their invoice closely. With Sonexis orphan caller protection, our customers can rest assured that no unnecessary fees will show up at the end of the month from the Telco and that the system will remain fully available for all other conferences.

Microsoft Active Directory (AD):

The Sonexis ConferenceManager has a powerful integration with Microsoft Active Directory. This integration support allows for the system to automatically create or remove user accounts on the Sonexis system as they are added or removed from their corporate network.Audio and web conference, Conference Bridge, Audio conferencing, video conferencing

This automation is especially crucial for large organizations that, simply due to their size, have employees regularly coming and going. With all the other aspects of that turnover to keep in mind, the last detail an IT or Telecom group wants to worry about is their user’s conferencing accounts.

Sonexis Conferencing Solutions:

For 15 years Sonexis has been improving collaboration for hundreds of organizations worldwide. In addition to the built-in cost savings that comes with owning your own platform, we’ve continued to deliver on the features and functionality that organizations need most. On a day-to-day basis, we are continually looking for the best ways to serve our customer base and this industry as a whole.

With our recently announced ConferenceManager™2, we are proving that on premise or managed hosted solutions can deliver the greatest cost-savings and highest levels of security when compared to conferencing service providers (CSP). We now provide a 1U Chassis, single server solution that can be deployed at your location or in our managed cloud facility.

Introducing Sonexis Operator Console

  
  
  

Sonexis Unveils Internal Operator Interface

Operator Console for Full Conference Management:

The New Sonexis Operator Console is a tool for any company or organization who wants an additional level of features, functionality and professionalism. As a cost savings measure, instead of outsourcing important operator assisted or managed calls, you can now have someone take on that operator role internally at your organization. This New tool allows the administrator to define someone as the go-to operator. Users can now dial *00 during any regular conference who may need help and can speak to the operator right from their ongoing conference. The operator can then, from their own interface, view that conference, troubleshoot where necessary and even join the conference themselves if deemed appropriate. This operator assignment is also suitable for any internal IT helpdesk.

Robust Operator Functionality:

      • Full Management of Live, Scheduled and Ad hoc Calls
      • Supporting Multiple Operator StationsAudio and web conference, Conference Bridge, Audio conferencing, video conferencing
      • Ability to Drag and Drop Participants
      • Management of Sub-conferences
      • Web-based Application
      • Multi-conference View

The above is only one example and a basic one at that. For any law firm, financial firm and their respective administrative assistants, this tool will not only add to their capabilities as a call facilitator but also add an extra layer of security as an operator over those important conference calls. This allows for anyone calling in to be screened by the operator and in the event multiple calls are occurring simultaneously, this ensures the new caller will be placed in the appropriate conference room. Likewise, the operator at the host’s request, can privately dialout to a contact to see if they are available at that time to join the call already in progress.

Operator Console Dashboard

Unique Conferencing Solutions:

Education is another pertinent sector that has seen value in the Operator Console application running on their ConferenceManager™. Several Universities have already rolled out the Operator Console to their campuses as a tool for distance education courses. Some of these courses meet entirely in this environment while others split their semester meeting half in the classroom and the other on the Sonexis platform. Schools offering this as an alternative to meeting in the classroom are very sensitive to the rising costs in education and so by holding a platform like ours internally allows for courses to continue to be more flexible in their delivery methods.

ConferenceManager 11.0 Recap:

Sonexis Employees and Customers are all very excited to experience the new and improved features of Sonexis 11.0, of which only the Operator Console is highlighted above. Our customer’s overall user experience has been our key motivating factor while developing this Major Release. Our goal is to reinvent and reimagine the way people think and feel about collaborating in a remote and virtual way. The simple truth to this method of collaborating is cost effectiveness and time savings. We feel confident that these improvements will continue to add value to the users’ experience and the company’s bottom line.
