Business Hangouts™ becomes more Enterprise Friendly

When we first launched almost 3 months ago, Enterprise customers were excited about the Business features brought in by Business Hangouts™, but they were lacking some fundamental services from Google such as :

– Impossible to limit the use of Hangouts to an Enterprise domain
– No SLA for hangouts (Service Level Agreement)
– Hangouts not compatible with Vault

In the past few weeks, there have been some great announcements from Google providing the basics for a better use of Hangouts and consequently Business Hangouts™ within the Enterprise and with Google Apps:

So now Enterprise customers and Google Apps users are being served with more enterprise-friendly features, and can enjoy those application layered features offered by BHO, including:

  • An all-in-one app for Enterprise Conferencing
  • A Comprehensive Scheduling module
  • Recording Private Hangouts
  • Customized Invitation Emails
  • Organizing non-public, Large Corporate BHOAs
  • Unified chat allowing viewers and participants
  • Events including external attendees signing in with Facebook and Linkedin
  • Comments Highlighting and Broadcasting
  • Exporting the chat history
  • Share videos and other interactive content during a BHOA

and many other features as presented in this comparative table.
