BroadSoft has unveiled Project Tempo, a new initiative based on BroadSoft's UC-One offering, and envisions new UC-One cloud services that will allow individuals and teams to reach new levels of productivity by integrating real-time communications and collaboration, cloud applications, and contextual intelligence, into a unified end-user experience, claims the firm.
The first step in the rollout of Project Tempo will be the release of a beta version UC-One Hub, in the first quarter of 2016. UC-One Hub is a cloud service that integrates real-time communications with cloud applications and offers contextual intelligence - allowing users to be more efficient and productive.
The beta will initially run on BroadSoft's UC-One Communicator using Google Chrome, and feature off-the-shelf cloud application integrations with Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Drive, in addition to Concur, Redbooth, and Twitter.
Today, BroadSoft believes that workforce productivity in the enterprise is suffering because various tools and off-the-shelf applications used by teams and workers to communicate only address niche solutions, and are disjointed from workflow processes. This often creates scattered communications, ineffective meetings, and fragmented workflows decreasing productivity and decision-making.
"The fact that BroadSoft supports 26 of the top 30 global service providers demonstrates our success," said Michael Tessler, chief executive officer, BroadSoft. "We believe that Project Tempo is an innovative initiative that extends BroadSoft's position, creates new revenue sources for service providers and meets the communications and collaboration needs of the emerging millennial workforce majority."
Service providers will have the flexibility to deliver BroadSoft UC-One and Project Tempo services via the BroadWorks platform, or as a fully managed hosted service from BroadSoft's cloud infrastructure, BroadCloud.
