It takes time to foster collaborative relationships and to incorporate these processes into day-to-day business operations. Users are often resistant to change. For some, it could be based on past experiences with a variety of CRM solutions or ERP systems that may have previously been rolled out by IT and offered little in the way of productivity. Now, with increased video bandwidth availability, videoconferencing has fundamentally changed how today’s workforce collaborates. The availability of cloud resources further enhances access capability as well as anytime/anywhere connectivity.
Avistar (News - Alert), the company that sells and licenses desktop and infrastructure products that combine to form video-enabled collaborations, announced the software-based Avistar C3 (News - Alert) Conference™ MCU. In many companies, keeping a balance between a secure and stable information structure and allowing users the freedom to exert their own control can be complicated. On top of this, collaborations are already occurring every day within your company. Avistar's virtualized HD videoconferencing is in use today at enterprise clients around the world and its proven effectiveness can show you how best to enable those collaborations within your organization.
For example, Avistar has resolved the bandwidth issues to make its desktop videoconferencing via the cloud a trouble-free process. Economically, it’s a smart choice because Avistar C3 Conference runs on standard hardware and no matter what the endpoint is -- tablet computer, room system or mobile device -- connectivity is never an issue. In many companies, keeping a balance between a secure and stable information structure and allowing users the freedom to exert their own control can be complicated. Enabling communications and horizontal collaboration between end users means that as more information is shared, an increased number of workers are involved in the business processes, not left outside or behind.
Avistar's HD multiparty MCU was designed with this goal in mind. The software runs with a number of virtualization solutions, such as Citrix or VMware, and this only increases the software’s extensibility. When rolling out the software-based Avistar C3 Conference MCU, it’s important to start your implementation by first understanding the strategic and tactical goals you hope to achieve.
Creating a common purpose among employees can sometimes take enormous time and effort meeting project goals and reaching targets. The collaborative process generally involves many different perspectives. Your organization can use Avistar C3 Conference™ MCU to foster those key collaborations and reach the goal of company excellence shared by all team members.
The software enables users to set up their own desktop videoconferencing on a private or public cloud infrastructure, or subscribe to videoconferencing services from an Avistar partner. Then, organizations can reap the benefits because Avistar C3 Conference runs on standard hardware; it's an all-software service that can cost 75 percent less than hardware-based multiparty videoconferencing.
