As businesses transition to home working in order to flatten the coronavirus curve, our video conferencing service Convene has seen a substantial increase in demand. In fact, within the first week of remote working we saw client usage had increased by over 300% – a clear indicator of the reliance organisations are having on video communications.
With these unprecedented times comes uncertainty – and organisations need the security of having efficient ways to communicate in order to maintain operations. In this respect, Convene has really helped many organisations. Unlike most other communication platforms, Convene allows users to connect regardless of what communication platform they choose to use and is incredibly cost-effective, offering a range of subscription-based packages including concurrent and group licensing options, maximising usage.
To help our clients get through this period, we recently increased our Convene capacity by over 280%, maximising the service for existing and new users. This has ultimately enabled them to hold a tremendous amount of online meetings since the outbreak enforced these new remote working regulations.
It’s a huge honour to be able to support companies during this challenging time. Our brilliant team of engineers are closely monitoring our clients' usage and increasing the capacity where needed, to ensure business continuity and seamless communications."Visavvi Collaboration Systems Architect, Andrew Hirst
