PHOENIX, Ariz. -- BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSFT) today announced Project Tempo – a new initiative based on BroadSoft’s UC-One offering that will power the future of work for the small to large enterprise. Project Tempo envisions new UC-One cloud services that will allow individuals and teams to reach new levels of productivity by integrating real-time communications and collaboration, cloud applications, and contextual intelligence, into a unified end-user experience.

Project Tempo is one of several announcements unveiled and demonstrated at BroadSoft Connections 2015. This event is BroadSoft’s annual global users’ conference and one of the largest of its kind in the industry, taking place October 25th - 28th, 2015 in Phoenix, Arizona. BroadSoft also announced it surpassed 12 million cloud unified communications lines deployed globally. In addition, BroadSoft announced November 2015 availability for the newest version of BroadCloud that now brings a full UC-One feature set to service providers, leveraging BroadSoft’s fully managed, hosted service.

The first step in the rollout of Project Tempo will be the release of a beta version “UC-One Hub,” in the first quarter of 2016. UC-One Hub is a cloud service that integrates real-time communications with cloud applications and offers contextual intelligence – allowing users to be more efficient and productive. The beta will initially run on BroadSoft’s UC-One Communicator using Google Chrome, and feature off-the-shelf cloud application integrations with Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Drive, in addition to Concur, Redbooth, and Twitter.

UC-One Hub Powers Workforce Productivity and Effectiveness Today, BroadSoft believes that workforce productivity in the enterprise is suffering because various tools and off-the-shelf applications used by teams and workers to communicate only address niche solutions, and are disjointed from workflow processes. This often creates scattered communications, ineffective meetings, and fragmented workflows decreasing productivity and decision-making. Project Tempo is BroadSoft’s vision for next generation contextual unified communications, focused on developing and designing products and technologies around the following core components:

  • UC-One Hub, a new centralised user experience that aggregates fragmented communications and information at the desktop and while on the move
  • UC-One, a comprehensive and market-leading cloud solution featuring the broadest range of real-time communications services, which is the foundation for UC-One Hub
  • Application Integrations that enable users to exchange information with pre-built and custom cloud applications and social media directly from UC-One
  • Contextual intelligence that presents and integrates situation-dependent information, such as the user’s conversations, social profiles, projects, files, availability and more
  • Enterprise messaging thatallows users to create dedicated and persistent project rooms to share documents, manage tasks, coordinate activities, and more
  • Unified directory services that let service providers federate advanced BroadSoft capabilities to communities of enterprises outside their network boundaries
  • Enabling Building Blocks that include Open Source Software, SDKs, APIs and Software Libraries for third-party application integration and customisation

    “The fact that BroadSoft supports 26 of the top 30 global service providers demonstrates our success and market leadership,” said Michael Tessler, chief executive officer, BroadSoft. “We believe that Project Tempo is an innovative initiative that extends BroadSoft’s position as a UCaaS global market leader, creates new revenue sources for service providers and meets the communications and collaboration needs of the emerging millennial workforce majority.”

    Service providers will have the flexibility to deliver BroadSoft UC-One and Project Tempo services via the BroadWorks platform, or as a fully managed hosted service from BroadSoft’s cloud infrastructure, BroadCloud.

    A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
