Rob Portwood, Managing Director of Videocall, explains; “This new white paper covers off the primary considerations that need to be followed when planning pervasive, cross company video communications."
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 27 November 2012
The days of videoconferencing being seen as a luxury are long gone. 2012 has been a defining year in companies’ attitudes to business videoconferencing which is now seen as a ‘must-have’. Business Insider predicts annual tablet sales will explode to 450 million by 2016. A number of major announcements from primary videoconferencing vendors including have resulted in a flurry of analyst reactions from Polycom, Wainhouse Research and Forrester commenting on what will happen next.
So what exactly is going on?
Rob Portwood, Managing Director of Videocall, explains; “The convergence of some significant technology developments with current social economic market trends has resulted in a need for our customers to re-examine the business case for deploying pervasive videoconferencing as a primary communications tool.”
New factors include:
- Market globalisation which is creating a challenging trading environment for businesses where tightly controlling costs, getting products to market, and making important management decisions even more quickly are seen to be a necessity for staying ahead of the curve;
- The influx of consumer mobile applications in the workplace, which is driving up user expectations and demand;
- Less money being available for upfront capital investment as company budgets are reviewed;
- Companies needing to promote remote video collaboration among employees, customers and suppliers to drive further mandated efficiencies;
- And the growing need for individuals to do more with less
Videocall have been watching this dynamic evolution very closely to ensure that customers remain well informed when developing their videoconferencing investment.
Rob Portwood continues “It is so important that we embrace these new major technological advancements with care and detailed insight. We consider it is so important that we have shared our due diligence as to what we consider are the primary considerations and processes to follow when planning pervasive, cross-company video communications in the production of a new white paper.”
