Orange County, CA (PRWEB) August 24, 2006
BrightCom, Inc., the performance leader in integrated conferencing, announces that it has been selected as the video conferencing vendor for Medical Mutual of Ohio. With over 1.5 million customers throughout the Midwest, Medical Mutual is a leading provider of health care for over 70 years. In order to maintain a high level of customer service, Medical Mutual routinely communicates between its branches. Employees would spend several hours traveling from office to office resulting in a loss of man-hours. To address the increased cost of travel between offices, Medical Mutual began researching a cost-effective solution for video conferencing. Upon reviewing several systems, Medical Mutual selected the ClearView Video Conference Room System to address the requirement for a high-quality, secure, point-to-point video solution.
As a high-resolution video conference solution, the ClearView Video Conference Room System provides Medical Mutual with the ability to hold secure meetings with other offices simply by clicking a button. Employees can easily use the dialing menu to determine which conference rooms are available and hold a high-quality video conference with multiple locations. The ClearView Video Conference Room System is a fully secure product which complies with HIPAA regulations regarding secure communications and can easily be used as a mobile conference room. "We are using the flexible architecture of the system to address many needs such as moving the system from one room to another without administrative support," said John Columbro, Director of IT for Medical Mutual. "We plug the system into an Ethernet port, and the conferencing begins," added Columbro.
By selecting the ClearView Video Conference Room System for their collaboration needs, Medical Mutual has dramatically reduced the need for employees to travel to attend meetings, at a fraction of the cost of other video conference solutions. "By providing a secure method to conduct a point-to-point video conference and adding the ability to take these conferences to the desktop, we have addressed Medical Mutual's intra-office communication needs and allowed them to expand their potential audience beyond the conference room," said John Mudge, President of BrightCom.
In order to determine Medical Mutual's web conferencing requirements, Prevail Performance, a BrightCom National Platinum Partner, conducted a thorough scope review of the customer's collaboration needs. As a lead partner in the Midwest region, Prevail Performance has several years of experience in software deployments and a proven track record of customer satisfaction. "We realized early not only what Medical Mutual wanted to accomplish, but also what they could accomplish with this solution," said Edward Taton, Vice President of Prevail Performance. "Our close relationship with BrightCom provided us the opportunity to address all of Medical Mutual's requirements and concerns so that they were satisfied with the overall solution," added Taton. Medical Mutual is now in the process of extending their video conference system by implementing ClearView solutions in several other offices to satisfy their growing video conferencing requirements as well as integrating BrightCom's web conferencing solution to increase collaboration.
