Four Reasons Why Any-to-Any Video Conferencing is a Game Changer

1. It's a less expensive way to add video to your organization – many companies that use room-centric video conferencing love their solution and benefit from it, but the simply don't have the budget to expand their use of video.  It's expensive to add more rooms systems and more video phones.  But with any-to-any video, participants can join in using their laptop, using just their web browser (WebRTC), or tools they are used to like Skype or Google Talk.

2. It drives more video usage – often employees and partners want to collaborate with video, but they just can't do it: either they're unable to access a room system, or they're physically remote from a room system – or even more frequently, they can access a video system, but the person they want to meet with cannot!  With any-to-any video, it's much easier to start a video conversation, because all parties can easily access video – even from their smartphone!   Companies using any-to-any video typically report 300%-400% more video usage than companies that rely on hardware solutions.

3. It alleviates room congestion
– Let's face it – reserving a conference room or a video facility isn't always easy.  Rooms get reserved months in advance, and everyone ends up frustrated.  With any-to-any video conferencing, you're no longer limited by time or space.   Start conferences when you want – not just at 7:30am because that's the only time that is free!

4. It drives more B2B communication
– The real Achilles Heel of video conferencing has been that it has been great for intra-company collaboration,  but it has not been used for business-to-business or business-to-consumer collaboration.  This has really been because of technical limitations – different companies used different systems that did not interoperate.  With any-to-any video conferencing, now it is easy to invite customers, partners, suppliers, or other external parties to join your call.  They don't even need a video system – they can join via their web browser or Skype or Google.  And consumers can dial in too – which makes any-to-any a great application for interviewing, healthcare, and many other B2C applications.
