Convene comms for 'Le Tour'

As the historic Tour de France event got under way in Leeds, the team at North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) saw the need for a scalable and constant communications solution.

What was essential was a totally reliable, round-the-clock network, connecting the Council’s five control rooms by video and audio, enabling managers to share plans, maps and information boards visually - and instantly. 

With demands for updated logistics escalating rapidly as the Grande Depart approached, the Emergency Planning Team turned to Visavvi for a solution based on our Convene managed video conferencing service, already in use by the council.
