Two recent portfolio announcements in today’s highlights: the first from IntelePeer who unveiled their “Fluent Marketplace” with an online communications application exchange. Also in the news: Zeacom has redesigned their user interface, also adding new campaign tools for customers using Microsoft Lync, and enhanced redundancy options.
IntelePeer offered a preview of their Fluent Marketplace portfolio at the BroadSoft Connections executive user conference held earlier this month in San Diego.

While the Fluent Federation service provides global interconnectivity by supporting services such as HD audio and video, the Fluent Marketplace consolidates and simplifies ordering, billing and service via a single portal.
Commenting in a statement, Margaret Norton, chief marketing officer (CMO) for IntelePeer said, “On one hand, we see business executives who want to be able to choose communications applications tailored to meet their communications needs, yet want to avoid the complexity and resources often associated with deploying new services from multiple vendors. On the other hand, we work with application providers who want to focus on creating and selling customized high-value applications without worrying about connections, billing, support and account management issues. Our Fluent Marketplace brings business customers and application vendors together in a simple, efficient way.”
