Cloud-based Model Delivers Compelling Benefits for Increasing Adoption and ROI
According to industry analyst firms, the demand for cloud-based personal collaboration is increasing rapidly. “Cloud-based conferencing solutions, like ArkadinVideo, offer a combination of strong performance, easy deployment, and affordability. This is a compelling benefits package that brings high quality videoconferencing within the reach of small, medium, and large enterprises around the world - even in a challenging economic climate,” says Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research. “Organizations seeking to conduct high impact visual collaboration without incurring a significant up-front cost should consider ArkadinVideo.”
Global Organization Gains Significant Productivity Benefits
HLB International, a global network of accounting firms, with members in 100 countries, needed a high-quality video conferencing service for training sessions and ensuring members had face-to-face contact for enhancing personal relationships. According to IT Manager Abu Bakkar, Arkadin had the edge in meeting all their requirements: “Since many of our accounting executives require a quick and trouble-free way to communicate, ease-of-use was especially important. Cost was also a key factor. We looked at all the major established brands and while they were good systems, the costs in comparison were prohibitive. ArkadinVideo had all the functionality of the big systems, but at a fraction of the cost. We have a whole year’s worth of videoconferencing for the cost of six or seven executives to travel to one two-day meeting.”
New Version Offers Enhanced User Experience
ArkadinVideo can be instantly secured over any internet connection through simple one-click access from desktops or mobile devices. Up to nine video displays are available for multiple participants to securely connect from any computer desktop or legacy end-point. The intuitive interface has easy to use audio and video controls for document sharing and on-the-go connectivity from mobile devices running Android or IOS operating systems.
The newest version offers several enhancements to improve the user experience for both desktop and room-based systems, including:
One-click video meetings via automatic device selection that remembers preferred settings
Enhanced acoustics that eliminate distracting echoes
Up to 16 video streams displayed simultaneously from room systems
