Assembla Releases Real-Time Team Room with multi-way video chat
Assembla releases real-time collaboration workspace featuring multi-way video chat for distributed teams
- Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) December 03, 2010 - Assembla (www.assembla.com), a leading provider of project management and team collaboration software, announced the availability of its Real-Time Team Room, featuring an innovative new multi-way group video chat tool, that is specifically designed for distributed teams that want to communicate and collaborate in real-time.
For the first time, distributed teams can communicate and collaborate as instantaneously as teams working in the same location or even in the same room. Unlike other video chat tools that support only one-to-one video conversations, Assembla's multi-way video chat capability lets everyone on a team communicate and collaborate simultaneously.
"Assembla lets you have face-to-face conversations with everyone on your team, making it a perfect way to focus on a specific task, deadline or project", said Andy Singleton, CEO of Assembla. "We designed the Real-Time Team Room for teams that need to keep track of project activity in real-time, which is especially important for distributed teams."
"Assembla has taken the activity stream to the next level by incorporating it directly into real-time video chat," said Andy. "Real-ime project activity is displayed directly in the chat stream, so you see what's happening as you chat with your teammates. This type of activity stream is very important for keeping members of a team working together."
Assembla's multi-way video chat capability is powered by OpenTok, a group video communication platform provided by TokBox, a leading web video communications provider, that enables websites to weave live, group video communication into their online experience. "We are excited to work with Assembla as our first partner in workplace collaboration," said Ian Small, CEO of TokBox. "By using the OpenTok video chat platform to enable face-to-face interactions, Assembla is bringing rich human interaction to distributed teams and fundamentally changing how teams can collaborate."
Assembla's Real-Time Team Room is available immediately. Pricing is based on team size and free options are available for open source and public projects.
Assembla is a leading provider of Project Management and collaboration workspaces for distributed teams. Assembla workspaces feature a complete set of collaboration and project management tools, including bug and issue tracking, agile planning and management, project wiki and team messaging, and hosted Git and Subversion repositories.
