Caldeira to offer live web conferencing
Larry Thomas -- Furniture Today, February 6, 2008
New York – Caldeira will launch a new internet-based videoconferencing system during the New York Home Fashions Market next week in its showroom at 230 Fifth Avenue.
Tested during the August 2008 market, the system will enable live videoconferencing to take place between Caldeira’s U.S., U.K. and Chinese showrooms. The company is now working on a technology that will allow buyers to use the technology on their own office computers.
“We are very excited to have this system available and anticipate being able to conduct a videoconference experience in the buyer’s own office through a simple webcam connection.” said Jeff Shaffer, Caldeira USA national sales manager.
Caldeira USA has made a strong start in the North American market despite difficult trading conditions and a weak dollar, using “a unique mix of both British and Chinese products.”
“We plan on becoming an important vendor to the industry,” said Carolyn Winderbaum, product development manager for the U.S. division.
