Tethr Introduces Meetings with Business Transcription

CollabIP today introduced Tethr, a web-meetings & collaboration service that combines groundbreaking voice-to-text transcription, effortless scheduling and integration with leading business productivity apps in a way that will transform the way companies communicate.

“Tethr completely reimagines business collaboration for companies large and small,” said Mike Mings, CollabIP’s CEO and co-founder. “Businesses are very mobile and employees need better, simpler tools to be more productive. We think Tethr does this very well.”

Tethr transcribes what’s said into searchable text

Tethr’s powerful voice-to-text technology transcribes users’ spoken words into a retrievable, searchable, and sharable web interface. Tethr allows users to quickly find important facts or ‘who said what’ and put those details to work.

Tethr’s powerful instant messenger enables text conversations in the browser interface or by SMS text so users can collaborate with each other, seamlessly, regardless of how they're connected to the meeting.

Tethr’s real-time transcription integrates with the smart messenger to alert offline users when a name, specific keywords or other verbal queues are spoken during a meeting allowing them to join or act on new information.

Users can easily join the meeting by voice or send an SMS text to their conference bridge for the meeting participants to see. Participants who choose to use their phones will get an SMS text when the meeting starts so they can dial in and automatically join.

Tethr effortlessly schedules meetings

Tethr blends seamlessly with the most-used calendaring programs (Google Calendar, Outlook, Yahoo!, etc.) to enable effortless meeting creation. Tethr users simply include [email protected] with the meeting invitation and Tethr sorts out the rest.

Tethr’s smart messenger with SMS provides a reminder to users that the meeting is starting, reducing missed conversations and keeping teams on the same page.

Tethr gives users their own Conference Bridge number so there is only one number to remember and no PIN to enter in the typical rush to join a meeting.

Tethr provides a rich HD audio experience through modern browsers without having to download anything or create an account. The end result are meetings that are effortless to join, easy to hear and more likely to move an organization forward.

Tethr is all about actionable business intelligence

Tethr offers an elegant user interface and easy ways to share transcribed conversations with well-known business apps including Salesforce, Basecamp, or Google Apps to enhance communication and productivity.

Tether’s voice-to-text transcriptions can be bookmarked and reviewed alongside the meeting audio to maximize understanding. Users can navigate through the transcript by jumping to key words, agenda items or bookmarks, simplifying the process of recall and effective action.

Tethr’s 360 degrees of accessibility can make meeting attendance optional because key decisions, new taskings or essential quotes from participants are readily accessible.

“We really focused on simplifying the user's experience across the entire interaction," said VP and co-founder Spence Wetjen. "Users will be pleased with how the features they're familiar with work seamlessly with Tethr’s new features like Meeting Transcription.”

Pricing & Availability

Tethr for Teams is available to SXSW registrants on a special trial offer for businesses with 5 members and above. Tethr is also available for larger businesses with a consultation on the size and likely usage of your company.

Specifications

Tethr can be accessed by your smart phone or through modern browsers including Chrome or Firefox without downloading any additional apps, patches or plugins.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
