The ConnectUsX product line is built around WebRTC at the core. It is very flexible and allows us to do almost anything. It is easy for us to integrate with other applications to push/pull outside data. It is also highly secure which is useful to us as we do a lot of work in the healthcare sector.
WebRTC is a browser based technology that allows point-to-point secure voice, video, and data links. The main advantage to WebRTC is the ease that a casual user can enter a voice or video call. No downloads are required. Just click a link and enter. This is very useful in the case of a customer, potential customer, or a patient. All of the modern browsers support WebRTC either now or will soon. All versions of Chrome, Firefox and Opera do now. Safari starting with IOS 11 and Microsoft Edge is working on it. Internet explorer is being phased out and does not support it natively, but it can be supported using a plugin.
Another key advantage of WebRTC is the widespread industry support. It is the future of communication technologies. We have been working with it since 2013, before it was even very usable. We could see that it would be the future.
Even though much of WebRTC is based on browser technology, much of our work involves embedding WebRTC inside native applications that run on all types of hardware. Although these applications require a download, they are more robust than the browser versions. They are designed for the permanent employee that uses ConnectUsX on a daily basis.
