Business leaders today are constantly looking for ways to control costs and improve communications to foster greater productivity, engagement and drive success. But many of these business leaders don’t realize that the answer they’ve desperately been searching for is already right under their noses. 

From desktops and laptops to smart phones and tablets, connected devices have become an integral part of the infrastructure driving a majority of businesses today. At all levels, across industries, for customer interactions and internal processes, these devices are deeply embedded in most major business operations.

Connected devices are now powerful enough to perform a seemingly endless number of functions. And despite the fact that they are found on the desks and in the hands of nearly every employee, their basic function as a tool for communication has seemingly been ignored.

For years, businesses have continued to burn resources paying for legacy phone systems that are difficult to maintain and costly to repair. Others still have allocated funding to pay for a more innovative approach, purchasing messaging or videoconferencing services to take advantage of the ubiquity of connected devices in their organizations.

But even with these more advanced solutions, many business leaders today continue struggling to balance their telecommunications needs with budgets that prevent them from achieving sustainable long-term growth.

Fortunately, Grandstream has answered the call.

In April of 2017, Grandstream announced the availability of its no-cost IPVideo Talk Web Meetings service, to the delight of pennywise business leaders. The innovative free platform empowers users with high quality, hassle-free 1-click online meetings. The HD quality video and audio is available from any PC, Mac, Androir or iOS device, making for seamless interoperability and broad appeal.

The readily available personal plan supports up to three participants that can join a meeting anytime, anywhere. This plan is ideal for small business leaders with limited resources and a small staff. But larger organizations stand to benefit with the roll out of plans coming in October of 2017 which will support 25, 50 or 100 participants.

While controlling costs alone is enough to entice most business leaders, Grandstream’s innovative IPVideo Talk also happens to be an award-winning product in its own right. Winner of the 2017 WebRTC Product of the Year Award, this service is embedded directly in browser and can be accessed with one click. No plug-ins, no downloads, no constant switching between tabs.

Business leaders can control and manage the meetings, customize everything from registration to follow-up emails, as well as gain the benefit of sophisticated meeting reports—giving you the opportunity to garner deeper insights for more educated decision making.

Many businesses have long operated under the assumption that when it comes to telecommunications, quality and cost are like oil and water. But thanks to Grandstream’s IPVideo Talk Web Meetings service, connecting your business no longer requires that you sacrifice one for the other. To learn more, click here.
