Xura, Inc., a leading provider of secure, digital communications services, announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company helping clients build communities in print, in person and online, has named Xura’s forge SDK as a 2016 WebRTC Product of the Year Award winner.
In 2015, the team at Xura, completed a major re-architecture of their forge SDK to provide enterprise customers with additional flexibility, customization and control in implementing and enabling contextual click-to-communicate functionality in webpages and mobile apps. The forge SDK was updated to enable and store recordings, support highly secure messaging, as well as power multi-party conferencing which spans across voice calling, IM, chat, text messaging and video conferencing.
Xura also launched its forgeAS (forge Application Server) making it easy for companies to add advanced services within apps, to provide a highly custom experience through what would be a normally complex process. For example, with forge AS enterprises can better support their call centers, by integrating additional functionality such as call queuing and routing based on customer type. This could also allow for contextual videos which can be shown during hold time, alongside premium billing associated with a certain tech support category, and connectivity into existing CRM systems to gather previous purchase information, language, or billing preferences.
“Last year was a big year for us in terms of enhancing our WebRTC technology and gaining customers in the financial services sector, and we’re excited that our hard work is paying off with this award. Looking forward, we hope to see our product updates and use-cases being realized in 2016 and beyond as more and business see the benefit of rich WebRTC-based communications,” said Eric Bilange, EVP Innovation, Xura. “This is just the start of an upward curve and we are ready for what the future holds.”
“It gives me great pleasure to honour Xura as a 2016 recipient of the WebRTC Product of the Year Award for their innovative WebRTC product, in the forge SDK,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Our judges were very impressed with the ingenuity and excellence displayed by XURA in their ground-breaking development work.”
