Verizon Introduces Small Businesses Portal Powered by Cisco WebEx

Verizon activated a new Small Business Center Web site -now featuring online collaboration tools, Web-based business software applications and interactive professional networking for small businesses across America.

The centerpiece of the new business portal is the Verizon Collaboration Center, powered by Cisco WebEx technology, with voice and Web conferencing that enables users to collaborate with peers, clients and vendors in a virtual environment that works like an Intranet. Licensed users can share documents and calendars, discuss ideas, set goals, and manage projects and business operations. With the Verizon Web Meeting add-on, users can meet online - in real time - with co-workers, partners, suppliers and customers.

The Verizon Collaboration Center is a hosted service available anytime there is Internet access. It does not require any hardware or software investment. There is also no need for in-house IT support, which helps small businesses save even more. Since the service is Web-based, all that is required is a computer (PC or Mac), an Internet connection and a Web browser. A Verizon Collaboration Center user pack for one to five employees costs $24.99 per month, with other discounted rates available when even more users are added.
