Fuze, the leading cloud-based communications provider for the modern global enterprise, today announced a suite of Google product integrations for enhanced productivity and seamless enterprise communications. The new G Suite Gmail integration now rounds out the existing integrations including Fuze Web for Google Chrome and the Google Chrome Browser Extension with the Fuze Meeting Google Plug-in. The portfolio of G Suite integrations empowers users with more flexibility for seamlessly creating and initiating Fuze calls and meetings across Google products.
Businesses are digitally transforming at a rapid pace to support a remote workforce, with Gartner’s CFO Survey citing 74 percent of organizations are planning to permanently shift to more remote work. As the resulting market demand for cloud-based communications solutions accelerates, Fuze’s suite of Google integrations simplify unified communications for enterprise organizations that have standardized on G Suite for productivity.
“The global shift towards remote work has drastically increased the demand for UC solutions to help maintain business continuity and productivity,” said Jed Brown, SVP of Product at Fuze. “Since early March, we have seen Fuze Web users triple and total web calls increase by over 750 percent. Fuze continues to advance its offerings to meet the enterprise market’s evolving need for more open communications solutions. Our expanded integration with Google is one of the latest developments in our effort to eliminate any barriers to productivity and collaboration, while enhancing the user experience.”
The GSuite integration started with Google Chrome––Fuze for Web grants any user or guest participant the same experience and tools available in the Fuze Desktop, directly in Chrome with no required plug-ins or downloads. Paired with the new Fuze GSuite add-on for Gmail, which enables one-click Fuze calling of any contact’s phone number in a Gmail thread, this integration enhances the overall calling experience by providing a seamless handoff between the two platforms.
In addition, the Fuze Google Chrome Browser Extension provides dial pad access for directly dialing a phone number from your toolbar and a click-to-call option that enables users to make phone calls from any webpage that lists a phone number. The extension includes the Fuze Meeting Google plug-in, allowing Fuze users to seamlessly schedule and edit Fuze meetings, as well as utilize click-to-join from Google Calendar. The plug-in also offers additional language support for French, Italian, German and Spanish.
