Citrix Application Performance Management
Citrix and Shanghai Telecom are partnering up, offering Citrix’s GoToMeeting with HDFaces to customers in China. Thanks to Shanghai Telecom, Citrix’s flagship product will see a vast new base of customers, while proving profitable to them both.
The Cirtrix GoToMeeting with HDFaces provides real-time, face-to-face Web collaboration with integrated HD group video and audio. Anyone with an Internet connection and computer can host, attend, or participate in an online meeting, while it’s also available as a free app for iPad, iPhone, and Android (News - Alert) devices.
Shanghai Telecom is a part of China Telecom, the major telecommunication operator in China. From October 2012 and onward, it will sell GoToMeeting under the name of Huiytong, getting Citrix’s flagship product out to the many companies and workers in China.
"The addition of GoToMeeting to Shanghai Telecom's market-leading communications solutions provides customers with a simple-to-use, real-time collaboration tool that offers a great customer experience and improves team productivity," says Brett Caine, SVP and GM for Citrix’s Online Services Division. "At Citrix, we have long believed that work is no longer a place we go but a thing we do, and tools that enable teams -- regardless of location -- to meet and work collaboratively are essential for business success. By partnering with Shanghai Telecom, we will bring these capabilities to a large and growing workforce seeking simplicity, value and business success."
This venture should prove to be very beneficial to both Citrix and Shanghai Telecom. GoToMeeting with HDFaces is a very useful tool for web conferencing and online meetings, which is something always in demand. Now with a greatly increased customer base, thanks to Shanghai Telecom, it will be seeing many new and satisfied customers soon.
