SpawGlass selected AGT after an exhausitve search for the best video solution to reach our employees located at jobsites and our clients.
Atlanta, GA and San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
Applied Global Technologies (AGT), the leading managed services and UC technology provider for interactive and mobile video conferencing solutions was chosen by SpawGlass, a commercial contractor, to deliver the ENCORE UC Video Platform for mobile video conferencing.
SpawGlass incorporated the ENCORE solution to expand their video conferencing platform remotely for mobile users via the internet. Previously, SpawGlass was restricted to conferencing between regional offices using separate, standard video conference room systems on private IPVPN networks. Now, mobile users can participate in meetings between regional offices via laptop, iPad or iPhone. In addition, the system provides a sophisticated environment for video conferencing with clients and consultants. The company also now is utilizing the ENCORE solution to expand the reach of their in-house training program to allow employees located at jobsites to participate in training sessions from their office trailers instead of traveling to the regional offices. Being able to connect to training sessions from the jobsites via the web creates an avenue for all employees in the company to participate in training sessions without added travel time.

SpawGlass selected Applied Global Technologies after an exhaustive search for the best solution to our video conferencing needs. The objective was to incorporate a solution that would allow us to leverage our existing video conference room systems while extending our reach to users outside the local LAN/WAN, including our employees located at jobsites and our clients. With AGT, we’re able to have a branded portal to provide a professional image to our clients, and the ease of allowing third parties to conference with us is quite impressive. It’s as simple as emailing them a link to join a video conference. Another benefit of selecting AGT--having unlimited use without the penalty of a “pay by the minute” service which allows us to be unconstrained in our approach to video conferencing.
