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

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
