BroadSoft launches Hub to power the BroadSoft Business productivity application suite , enabling contextual conversations by bridging the gap between applications, information and communications GAITHERSBURG, Md., Nov. 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ:BSFT), a global unified communication software as a service (UCaaS) leader, today announced the launch of BroadSoft Hub, a new enterprise-grade cloud service integrating real-time communications with cloud applications and contextual intelligence for more productive communications and greater mobility. Hub is powering the future of work by providing BroadSoft Business users with immediate access to relevant information for every conversation - wherever they are, on whatever device. Workforce productivity suffers when the relationship between multiple business applications and real-time communications are disjointed. According to a 2014 HubSpot research report, an average of 31 hours per month is spent in unproductive meetings, with much of this time taken up searching through information scattered across locations, devices and applications 1. As a result, business processes and workflows often become fragmented, causing productivity to fall. BroadSoft Hub provides users with a single unified experience, bringing together BroadSoft Business - UC-One, Team-One and CC-One - and cloud apps with contextual information, such as recent files, email, social media engagements, tasks and IM sessions, without opening or searching through additional applications. Hub satisfies the need for truly effortless communications and collaboration demanded by today's workforce, enabling new levels of productivity and mobility through a unified user experience. As the market share leader for cloud UC, BroadSoft is a mobile-first cloud PBX, UC, team collaboration and contact center platform trusted by 25 of the world's top 30 service providers by revenue. BroadSoft Hub can reduce the cost and complexity associated with applications, integrating out-of-the-box with Google G Suite, Office 365, Salesforce, Twitter and more, as well as BroadSoft Business applications for UC, team collaboration and contact center. In addition, the BroadSoft Developer Program enables customers and developers to use BroadSoft Business bOpen APIs, SDKs and sandbox tools to quickly, reliably and securely develop custom integrations and apps. "By combining contextual intelligence with UC, BroadSoft Hub transforms communications into smart conversations. The new service increases productivity, optimizes process workflows and elevates the user experience," said Scott Hoffpauir, chief technology officer, BroadSoft. "By placing the user at the heart of their integrated cloud applications, they have the tools ready to manage information overload and navigate through information effortlessly and instinctively."
