We’re often asked this question and it has to do with our origins in application development. Our very first software development effort was an audio conferencing application that augmented Cisco System’s collaboration platform — and there you have it. Our use of Quium (kew-ē-um) originates from the latin noun “Colloquium”, an exchange of views, a collaboration or academic seminar. Why did we modify the latin? Honestly? We couldn’t say “kə-lō′kwē-əm” five times fast!
