Like Chocolate and Peanut Butter, Some Things are Better Together – RHUB Web Conferencing Servers – Connecting People Together

June 22nd, 2014

Collaboration is an inherently social concept. It’s about people and connection. It’s about communicating, working together, interacting to meet goals, accomplishing tasks, innovating, and creating. Just as people have unique personalities, so do the ways they collaborate for business, whether one on one or in groups, in structured meetings or hallway conversations, sitting at desks or on park benches, in real-time conversations or long-term interactions.

We have always collaborated in some way or other. Online Collaborationis not a new concept. What is relatively new is the use of technology to support the collaboration process.

As technology evolves and geography becomes less relevant to connecting with others, the options for how we collaborate multiply and then multiply again. Even so, technology itself is an enabler of collaboration; the value is in the connections that people make – with each other, information, and ideas.

Finding ways to improve the connections between people and the information they need to share is critical to improving business. We see great value in providing business and social solutions to our customers. Bringing together social networking with communications technology provides people with the means to collaborate and gives them flexibility to do the best work they can. We believe people working together can achieve extraordinary things. We believe the same is true of companies.

Increasingly, organizations are looking for ways to integrate social solutions into their collaboration tools and business processes and you know what? RHUB web conferencing servers are their choice. Throughout the past 8 years, RHUB has continued to weave social into the fabric of our own collaboration portfolio.

At the same time, we continuously looked for opportunities to collaborate with other companies to integrate new technologies and improve what we can offer our customers – bringing the best of the best together to provide our customers with the ideal solution to fit their business needs.

With our servers, participants can benefit from highly evolved collaborative tools without the need to install specialized software or be connected to a special network. As a result, it possible to gain access anywhere and at any time and in the manner that is best for your needs.

RHUB is helping its customers easily go between their real-time conversations, like instant messages, video conferences and online meetings, with the more persistent social conversations, like blogs, discussions, wikis, posts and online groups.

To provide the best flexibility and outcomes for our customers, we provide maximum customization with our products. Rather than emphasize social within one product, we’re making sure it’s an integral part of all our products. The benefits related to collaboration can be immense, but ultimately, they must translate to improved performance. At RHUB, we make that possible.

RHUB aims to deliver a seamless user experience and drive adoption. It’s all about helping people connect and collaborate with others, in the ways that work best for them. For more information visit our website http://www.rhubcom.com or call us on 866-758-0984

Wainhouse Research Interviews with Larry Dorie, the RHUB CEO on Unified Communications & Collaboration

May 16th, 2014

We decided to offer a concurrent use licensing approach. We want everyone in an organization that could benefit from real-time collaboration tools to have access to them. A floating license allows customers to enable as many team members as they wish to have access to the system — the contention is concurrent usage, not seat licenses.

The following article is an excerpt from The Wainhouse Research Bulletin Vol. 15 #10. Download here.

Lower Costs and Increase Sales with Remote Sales Presentations

April 16th, 2014

Traditionally, sales presentations have been cost heavy through incurred travel expenses and time away from the office. Additionally, the logistics of trying to plan sales presentations can often be a significant challenge for sales representatives with a hectic travel schedule. The inability to manage multiple meetings in geographically diverse locations often results in either increased travel expenses, lost sales, or both.

Remote sales presentations with the RHUB web conferencing servers make it possible to manage time more effectively by accomplishing more. As a result, sales teams are able to book more sales presentations in less time while also significantly decreasing travel expenses.

The ability to communicate with other parties remotely via webinars and other technology is certainly not new. Until now; however, most sales representatives have found existing technology to be severely limiting and not ideally suited for sales presentations. There are simply too many variables involved in sales presentations that cannot be left up to chance when conducting a remote presentation based on outdated software.

With the RHUB servers, sales teams are able to tap into a robust array of tools that make it possible to conduct presentations in a personalized manner. One of the most frequent drawbacks to making presentations remotely in the past was the inability to receive critical feedback. When you make a sales presentation live and in person, you are afforded with the benefit of being able to observe body language and then adjust your presentation accordingly. Along with being able to actually observe critical body language, it is also important that you be able to actively engage with the other party.

The RHUB servers provides several important tools that make it easy to communicate effectively with the other party, including 15-way video conferencing that allows up to 15 webcams to join the video conferences. This tool can prove to be highly beneficial in the event that you need to make a sales pitch to multiple principals of the same firm in diverse locations.

As you know, engagement is crucial to the success of any sales meeting. One area that has been significantly lacking in the past with other video conferences tools is the ability to provide critical documents as part of the presentation. That is not a problem with the RHUB servers. File transfer is included, allowing you to send folders or files to your clients. A whiteboard is also available for drawing as is an annotation feature that allows you to mark anywhere on your computer screen to emphasize important ideas or points. You can also take advantage of the remote printing feature to print relevant documents to the client’s location. Whether you need to provide clients with the latest sales literature, catalogs, brochures, or other information, these features will allow you to do so with the same ease and convenience as presenting in person.

The process of trying to balance sales presentations in today’s hectic business climate can be challenging. With the RHUB servers, sales teams have the opportunity to close more sales while incurring fewer costs.

Making Your Data More Secure With a RHUB Web Conferencing Server

April 14th, 2014

Web conferences save businesses millions of dollars per year, but a web conference doesn’t represent such an attractive savings if your confidential company information is stolen. It’s important to ensure that your web conferencing solution is going to provide enough protection to keep your data safe at all times.

An RHUB server represents an excellent security solution. Every RHUB server comes with a default 2048-bit SSL certificate preinstalled. Passwords and meeting IDs are transmitted via SSL. The screen image is protected by RHUB’s proprietary encryption by default, but the server can be reconfigured so that everything is SSL protected.

For even more protection, RHUB servers have a built-in firewall, though we recommend your RHUB server be used in conjunction with your company firewall. Because of its history of security issues, Java has been completely removed.

For transmission security, RHUB uses both SSL and proprietary encryption. Meeting IDs and passwords are SSL encrypted when transmitted over the Internet. Unlike conventional web conferencing, the RHUB server can be set up behind your company firewall, making it much more secure than a hosted service. Internal meetings within the firewall are simplicity itself to set up and totally secure.

DMZ deployment works well for meetings with external users. The RHUB server is set up at the firewall and your client is also behind a firewall. DMZ is available for almost every router, even home routers. A DMZ setup permits both attendees who are behind a firewall and attendees who aren’t to attend a meeting. If you wish, you can easily restrict the meeting to attendees within your network only.

A deployment outside the firewall is also a possibility. In this scenario, the RHUB server is configured between your firewall and the client firewall. This deployment is equivalent in security to hosted services.

The safety of RHUB servers has been tested intensively by banks, government agencies, and defense companies. You can’t find a webinar solution more capable of providing you with security when you really need it. To discuss how our robust protection can benefit you, give us a call at 408-899-2831.
