Vonage Meetings is the latest in a series of innovations to Vonage Business Communications (VBC), enhancing the Company's unified communications offering.

To address the current pressing need for a virtual work environment, Vonage's new Business Continuity Offer enables teams to work from anywhere using the Vonage mobile or desktop application, minimizing business disruption and giving teams immediate access to the full suite of VBC capabilities.
