Fuze launches Fuze 5.0

Fuze, the cloud-based communications platform provider for the modern global enterprise, has announced the launch of Fuze 5.0, the company said.

With shifts in how large companies are thinking about their workforce—-and the mix of full-time employees, contractors, and outside partners—-the definition of teams has evolved. Fuze 5.0 helps businesses streamline communications and collaboration for the extended team ecosystems that exist in modern companies.

Fuze 5.0 marks a significant milestone in the evolution of the Fuze platform, expanding the offering with an application design that supports all communications modalities—-voice, group interaction, face-to-face video, content collaboration—-and enables an enterprise´s entire ecosystem of independent contractors, vendors, and partners to connect how they choose to and continue conversations how and when they want.

The decreasing percentage of work taking place behind the traditional desk is quickly giving way to tools and practices that will empower digital workers to be more productive and happy. Fuze 5.0 unlocks communications and collaboration capabilities for workers who lack or forego access to a traditional phone, desktop, and laptop, and rely on smartphones, tablets, and Chrome OS-enabled devices.

With Fuze, unified communications is no longer a siloed experience limited to internal users having to choose between a call, video, or chat with one or many workers. Fuze takes a more natural and fluid approach to communications and collaboration for the extended company ecosystem, with a set of new features in a browser or across desktop, mobile, and Chrome OS.

Fuze is a global provider of a cloud-based unified communications platform that empowers productivity and delivers insights across the enterprise by enabling simplified business voice communications, flexible video conferencing, and always-on collaboration. Formerly known as Thinking Phone Networks, Fuze allows the modern, mobile workforce to seamlessly communicate anytime, anywhere, across any device. Headquartered in Cambridge, MA, Fuze has additional locations across the globe, including New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Ottawa, London, Amsterdam, Aveiro (Portugal), Paris, Munich, Zurich, Madrid, Copenhagen, and Sydney.
