Cutting-edge technology at your fingertips

Today, no one doubts how important it is to have any visual communication in remote conference calls, as it perfectly complements the messages sent during a work session. This allows for a more intimate approach with the people involved, to observe their reactions, to focus your attention, and to know whether they agree or disagree with what is being said. This makes the meeting more efficient: a picture is worth a thousand words.

There is a growing number of video collaboration tools in the market -which are quite effective-, such as Skype, YouTube and others, and which can be used by any person. These tools are becoming more and more popular in the enterprise market. Certainly, there are huge differences between them, and there are also complete and robust enterprise solutions, which are capable of offering interoperability with the systems, and integration into corporate security, which the ones mentioned above cannot provide.

Scopia Avaya technology is suitable for both a business that needs three or four points, and for an organization that requires hundreds of remote points to establish a connection, that wants to offer it as a service or install it at a company. It's the same technology. In fact, video collaboration in the enterprise solution is also a trend that customers want on the cloud.

Nowadays, there are companies that have created these kinds of services, such as Alestra, one of Avaya’s technological partners, which is launching a video collaboration service for small, medium-size and large corporations, with flexible plans, a monthly payment, in order to make these corporate services affordable, so you can communicate in an easy, simple, and efficient way, both internally and externally with your clients.

One of the main advantages of Avaya Scopia is that customers can hire the service at any time, which is activated very quickly, without any investment or special equipment. If you require a connection at a board room, the equipment provides the best quality, and the best experience with a video collaboration system with Full HD screens.

These services will allow the video conference rooms to be used, those which are currently not being used for meetings with larger groups of users who establish a connection from the same room, while others do it from their mobile devices or PCs.  Everyone collaborates easily, and in the right environment.

Moreover, this solution is very simple for the end user, even if it is the first time using it, because with one click you can join a session safely.

Also, the carrier can configure new services easily and it does not require a large support staff to provide the service, because the management interface of Scopia Avaya is quite simple compared with those of other manufacturers. And last, but not least, this is a fully interoperable solution, meeting the market standards and integrating existing client platforms, regardless of the brands.
