Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 05, 2015
Today Conference Room Systems (also known as "CRS") announced that they are working with Zoom Video Communications to provide comprehensive cloud-based video conferencing solutions. CRS provides USB-based video conferencing hardware and will resell Zoom’s cloud-based online video conferencing software. Zoom’s software-defined conference room system, Zoom Rooms, offers video conferencing, integrated audio, and wireless screen sharing.
In conjunction with this partnership, CRS is announcing the release of CRS Designer, a free online design tool for creating USB-based video conferencing systems, available at http://designer.conferenceroomsystems.com. The CRS Designer gives office and facility managers the flexibility to quickly lay out technology in the spaces they plan to equip with video conferencing equipment using any iPad, smartphone, Mac or PC.
“We quickly realized that users were using our online room design tool to build solutions for Zoom video conferencing deployments,” Paul Richards, Business Development for CRS mentioned. Richards explained that customers were not only designing a lot of Zoom Rooms; they were also using Zoom Rooms for longer durations of time than traditional video conferencing rooms. "When we looked at the number of minutes our customers were actually using the Zoom service versus the traditional Polycom and Cisco solutions we offer, the differences were astonishing,” Richards noted. “Customers using Zoom's integration with Slack or Salesforce used video conferencing the most. As Zoom brings access to video conferencing closer to the core day-to-day workflow of our top customers, they use video conferencing for more daily tasks."
Eric S. Yuan, CEO of Zoom said, "Zoom is all about providing flexible, easy solutions for our users. CRS Designer furthers this goal as it allows them to design their own Zoom Rooms configuration in a snap.” Richards noted, “Every conference room and huddle space is different. At CRS we offer a wide variety of USB-connected conference cameras and speakerphone that can fit any installation effort.”
CRS is located outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where parent company Haverford Systems has over 30 years of audio/visual integration experience. Adding Zoom Video Communications complete product offerings to their one stop shop e-commerce site http://ConferenceRoomSystems.com makes life easier for partners and customers.
Conference Room Systems plans to incorporate the Zoom Video Conferencing, Video Webinar and Zoom Rooms solutions into the already popular HuddleRoom, BoardRoom and WirelessRoom PC-based video conferencing solutions. This reseller partnership will bring both companies to a new level of integration between USB-based video conferencing hardware and cloud-based video conferencing software.
