Industries such as healthcare, education, enterprise, finance, public sector, and others can take advantage of the Service Platform by integrating voice, video and web collaboration into their new or existing workflow processes. Further differentiating the Media Collaboration Service Platform, users are empowered to take advantage of ClearOne's VMWare based Spontania, available either as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or installed directly in their own premise or data center making it one-of-a-kind in the market.

"Partnering with ClearOne not only provides us a comprehensive collaboration feature set but also the level of relevant integration experience required to support our team."

ClearOne's Media Collaboration Service Platform enables businesses to easily, affordably and seamlessly add Spontania's advanced media capability such as audio, video, and web collaborations tools directly to their applications offering greater value to their customers."
