Vonex (ASX:VN8) has released an extensive update on the development of its industry leading Oper8tor platform.

Oper8tor Conference is the first stage of the communication app and will be white labelled to businesses during March 2019. This immediate go-to-market strategy will encourage VN8 business customers to brand Oper8tor Conference with their own branding (such as logos, colours and text).

With beta testing now successfully completed on Conference, VN8 believes the app will be available in the App Store and Google Play Store by March.

Commercial launch in Europe remains on track for July this year, with the region selected due to its large market size and widespread mobile adoption (465 million mobile devices).

At launch, the Oper8tor app will provide Voice functionality mirroring that of Oper8tor Conference, allowing users to call blast their contacts.

Development of Oper8tor Messaging, VN8’s solution for unified social media messaging, is also well underway. The company expects the initial release of Oper8tor Messaging will target at least three social media platforms.

As previously noted throughout our coverage of VN8, functionality of the Oper8tor app will expand as development of project features are completed by the company’s development team.

The Oper8tor app will bring the Conference, Voice, Message and Video platforms together to provide a seamless one stop communication tool that is supported by multiple platforms.

VN8 managing director Matt Fahey spoke on the update, “Our technology development team continues to execute extremely well against the objectives we have set to support Oper8tor’s commercialisation.

“Our latest feedback and testing indicates the features that Vonex provides in Oper8tor Conference is resolving pain points that platforms currently in the market have not addressed. In a survey sent to one quarter of our current users, the feedback on audio quality and simplicity of use of Oper8tor Conference has shown positive results.

“We see great scope for these innovations to bring smooth and seamless communications to a broad range of business and consumer users, and look forward to developing the Oper8tor platform further in 2019.”

About Oper8tor Conference

Oper8tor Conference is designed to address the shortcomings of traditional conferencing software. The platform utilises the intuitive WebRTC technology to execute calls within web browsers.

The company has now completed its beta round of testing and has moved to develop several new features for the platform, including:

  • Built in address book, optionally synchronised from one or mobile devices
  • Meetings dashboard includes new labels to indicate the next conference
  • When a contact is successfully reached through a single number, calls to the other numbers will instantly cease
