CoroWare Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of CoroWare, Inc. (COWI.OB), today announced availability of CoroWare Billing Integration Framework(TM) for Accumulus® and Vidyo(TM) which offers conference service providers a highly scalable and affordable cloud-based billing solution that integrates dynamic usage- and subscription-based billing from Accumulus Corporation and high definition videoconferencing systems from Vidyo.
