With today’s fast-paced world, technology travels with you. Teams are spreading out and employees expect their business tools to provide the highest quality, wherever they are located – at home, in the coffee shop, at the airport or in the office. Being mobile allows staff to be more productive and responsive – effectively using devices as an extension to your businesses IT network.
And with the rise of Smartphones, tablets and mobile devices comes the rise of BYOD (“Bring-your-own-device“). Rather than the IT department issuing standardized equipment – the same laptop and phone as all other employees – staff wish to access secure network resources, check corporate email and engage in enterprise communications on their own devices.
A well run BYOD policy will make a company exponentially more efficient & better able to quickly respond to an ever changing workplace.
The collision of the BYOD and collaboration trends is paving the way for professional Mobile Video Conferencing solutions – enabling employees to collaborate with colleagues on-the-go, on whatever device they choose.
MOBILE VIDEO COLLABORATION
As mobile working increases, employees are developing remote working skills that use Video Conferencing and Collaboration tools, to drive productivity and help achieve a better work/life balance. VideoCentric’s Mobile Video Conferencing Solutions allow businesses to connect mobile employees to business meetings whilst still ensuring the security of the organisations video environment. Our Mobile Video Solutions include:
- Device interoperability & Meeting Room to Mobile connectivity
- Firewall Management & Network Security Solutions
- Central device management for IT control
- Smartphone & Tablet apps, & desktop/laptop clients
In 2011, VideoCentric launched their first-of-it’s-kind mobile video collaboration suite, to test and develop mobile video conferencing solutions from the likes of Cisco, LifeSize, Polycom, RADVISION and Vidyo, to ensure only the highest quality and interoperable solutions would be provided to customers. We invite you to come along to our HQ, see all the mobile solutions available in the market, side-by-side, and hear our unbiased views on each solution on offer.
With nearly two thirds of employees using personal devices for work, IT departments are looking for ways to provide any device access, whilst maintaining security through policy control. Whilst BYOD concerns around interoperability, network security, management & bandwidth might be seen as a nightmare for some, the benefits to business productivity & efficiency, and the push from employees to provide a high quality solution means IT departments have no choice but to embrace the trend.
