The market is looking for solutions that are able to deliver both web and video conferencing

November 10th, 2011

A new research shows that companies are looking for solutions that are able to deliver both web and video conferencing to improve collaboration among their employees and to increase team productivity.

According to the latest InformationWeek Analytics Desktop Videoconferencing Survey, collaboration was cited by 38% of the respondents as being the main reason behind their adoption of desktop web conferencing solutions, followed by the reduction of travel costs with 31%.

The InformationWeek Analytics Desktop Videoconferencing Survey, which tries to determine web and video conferencing adoption plans and strategies in Northern American enterprises, found that 34% of the respondents have already deployed desktop web conferencing and 10% are looking forward to adopting it over the next twelve months.

The report also shows that the majority of the web conferencing solutions will be deployed using Windows PCs (96%), followed by iPads (39%) and Macs (34%).

Still, desktop web conferencing adoption is still far from the numbers achieved by video conferencing solutions which is being used in meeting rooms of companies all across the country. According to the report, video conferencing is being used or is planned to be used in the near future by 78% of the surveyed companies.

What these findings show is that the market is looking for solutions that are able to deliver both web and video conferencing. With the adoption happening at a fast pace, companies will be looking for solutions which allow them to deploy remote conferencing whether they are video, web or even audio, since it is becoming clear that one tool is not enough and that they need different tools for different purposes.

Solutions like RHUB’s 6-in-1 TurboMeeting appliance, which provides video, web and audio conferencing tools as well as remote access in one single appliance, will be leading the market since they deliver value-added service enterprises are looking for in one single and easy-to-use package.
