Video as a Service (VaaS)

Video conferencing has historically been seen as purely for the corporate giants and not something that the SME company could get good use from. Times have changed and there are many benefits that even a small company can get from the latest generation of video systems:

  • Huge time savings – On demand “face to face” access to your colleagues wherever they are
  • A great deal of money and waste saved by reducing travel needs
  • Multi-site Collaboration
  • Disaster resistance – Crises like Terrorism and Flu Pandemics do not affect your working relationships

Things are changing

We are all used to cloud services ‘creeping’ into the everyday business world. It usually starts with large corporate apps and then rolls out to SMEs. We have seen it with e-mail, office apps and even storage, but there is now a new way to enter the previously rarefied world of Video Conferencing – Vaas or VIDEO as a SERVICE.
