Vancouver, BC, Canada — August 11, 2015
CounterPath Corporation (NASDAQ: CPAH) (TSX: CCV), a developer of award-winning over-the-top (OTT) Unified Communications solutions for enterprises and operators, today launched its next generation of solutions, including Bria 4.2 for desktops, Bria 3.4 for Android/iOS, and Stretto Platform 1.7 which provides management, mobility and messaging capabilities.
With this new set of product releases, business users can now access CounterPath’s latest functionality across major platforms. When coupled with Stretto 1.7, Bria 4.2 for desktops and Bria 3.4 for Android/iOS support Stretto Sync, enabling users to view their instant message history across all of their enabled devices in real time. Bria 4.2 also includes improved audio and video capabilities that enhance the user experience. The Mac version of Bria 4.2 now includes screen sharing functionality that was previously only offered to Windows PC users.
Consumers are rapidly adopting Internet OTT (over-the-top) applications such as WhatsApp, driving rapid growth in messaging traffic. According to Juniper Research, consumers are expected to send over 100 trillion instant messages in 2019, up from the 31 trillion sent in 2014. With these latest product releases, CounterPath is focused on addressing similar opportunities with businesses and enterprises.
“SMBs and enterprises are constantly under pressure from end users to bring the functionality they use in their consumer applications to the business environment,” said Todd Carothers, EVP of Marketing and Products at CounterPath. “With this latest product launch, we have added key functionality the market demands, including Stretto Sync technology that leverages our messaging platform. We launched Stretto Sync first to fill an immediate gap in the multi-billion dollar Unified Communications market, and based on user feedback. Going forward, we will use the Stretto Sync to manage other services, including call logs.”
Bria 4.2 for Windows and Mac are available for purchase on the CounterPath store for $49.99 USD. If you are an existing owner of Bria 3 for desktop, you are eligible for a 30% discount on Bria 4. Bria 3.4 for Android/iOS will be available later this month on Google play and iTunes stores.
