RHUB’s 15-Way HD Video Conferencing Solution Offers Improved Business Outcomes for SMEs

October 11th, 2014

Today, small to medium enterprises (SMEs) have more opportunities than ever to expand their reach and offer services and products to an increasing global marketplace. Traditionally, this has required expensive travel, but the rise of advanced technology is making it possible for SMEs to engage with partners and customers anywhere in a cost-effective manner. Among the fastest growing communication solutions to make this possible is video conferencing. In order to take advantage of those benefits, SMEs must make certain that they have the right equipment to meet their needs. Businesses that have utilized video conferencing software in the past may have found the process to be unrewarding and difficult due to poor quality and unreliable connection issues.

Ensuring the right size equipment for today as well as tomorrow is essential for companies within the small to midsize enterprise segment. As a result of their size, it is not unusual for SMEs to lack the robust procedures and in-depth IT knowledge required for IT hardware purchases. Consequently, such SMEs may spend too much on the purchase and deployment of enterprise-level hardware in order to serve only a small number of concurrent users.

An IDC report issued in 2013 on the use of telecom resources by SMEs found that 30 percent of mid-market companies used video conferencing resources that extended beyond simple webcams. Another 30 percent stated that they planned to deploy the use of video solutions in the near future.

With the rise of video, the stage has now been set for significant growth within this sector. In fact, estimates indicate that the number of SMEs making use of video conferencing could double over the course of the next year.

RHUB’s video conferencing solution offers the use of advanced technology and customized solution to assist SMEs in improving customer interactions and boosting productivity. Through the RHUB video conferencing all-in-one solution, it is possible to provide SMEs with superior value with a simple and cost-efficient desktop and HD video collaboration capability.

SMEs are able to take advantage of the opportunity to establish a virtual conference room capable of accommodating up to 15 participants with a simple click-to-join capability through laptops, desktops, etc. As a result, it is possible to engage with conference participants who may not be within the SME’s internal network, setting the stage for face-to-face meetings. While audio is great, the ability to connect with clients in an open and honest manner while taking advantage of face-to-face conservations can assist in building loyalty and trust in critical business relationships.

RHUB offers a robust array of features, including content sharing, voice and audio, chat functionality, and more. In addition, video collaboration is not restricted to just big companies with massive budgets. All it takes is a simple click for both internal and external parties to work together in a face-to-face manner. Consequently, this can drive faster collaboration, improved decision making, and healthier business outcomes.

HD Video Conferencing Available through RHUB Web Conferencing

July 26th, 2014

 

As a RHUB customer for many years, I have been very pleased with the flexibility, cost, video quality, and screen sharing that RHUB offers. With the new HD video service, I can create video conference with as many as 15 attendees and without incurring any additional costs. Built into the latest RHUB 5.0SP1 software, this new feature doesn’t require any separate video conferencing equipment. All that is necessary is a microphone and webcam. Of course, if you want to reduce background noise, it’s nice to have headsets. Users can also take advantage of the opportunity dial into an audio bridge. Individual streams are displayed at a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, providing a maximum resolution of 1360 x 768 pixels.

When attending a demonstration with 15 attendees, I discovered that everything was extremely easy to use. In addition, the quality was quite good. RHUB software, which is available for Mac and Windows, is very quick to download. One of the things I like best about it is that you do not need to adjust any settings. The audio was absolutely perfect and video quality was very good, as well. By providing the service to 15 users at the same time, RHUB is able to provide more visibility during meetings.

One of the great benefits of this service is that a split screen is automatically displayed, dividing into the appropriate number of boxes necessary to show each attendee. When desired, there is also a screen sharing space. RHUB has also put a lot of thought into adding several user-friendly features, such as a white outline that will show which attendee is speaking at any given time. In addition, you can take advantage of the option to resize the viewable area in order to maximize the shared desktop, if you like.

In just the last few years, the world of business has changed dramatically and it’s become more important than ever to be able to communicate in real time. If you are not able to do that, there’s a good chance that you’re falling behind the competition. Traditional phone calls may work for casual communication, but when you need to disseminate important information, HD video web conferencing provides the ability to communicate faster and more effectively. Compared to a phone call HD video web conferencing capabilities from RHUB give attendees to review graphics and charts while simultaneously being able to view facial expressions and gestures, thus ensuring accurate and clear communication of relevant information. With this feature, you can interact with customers as if you were in the same room without racking up travel costs that could impact your bottom line.

Using Web Conferencing Software for Driving Sales

April 18th, 2014

In today’s competitive business landscape, it is more important than ever to engage regularly with clients while also reducing overhead costs. While sales professionals today have an array of technologically advanced tools available at their disposal, one tool that makes it possible to save time, reduce costs, and drive sales is web conferencing. When used as a tactical tool, web conferencing applications such as RHUB, make it possible not only develop prospects, but also improve customer relations and close more deals.

One of the increasing ways in which web conferencing is now being used as a strategic way to boost sales is to build and strengthen client relationships. As most sales professionals are well aware, meeting with a prospect face-to-face is an excellent way to establish trust and understanding. Unfortunately, in-person meetings can be expensive and difficult to arrange given increased travel costs and scheduling conflicts. With RHUB, web conferencing makes it possible to build customer relationships by expanding the reach of customer communications and increasing the frequency by which you can meet with clients.

Additionally, web conferencing makes the sales process increasingly flexible as well as more personalized and interactive. One of the most crucial periods during a sales cycle occurs at the beginning, when you are just becoming acquainted with the customer and developing an understanding of his or her needs. Web conferencing gives you the ability to solidify customer relationships through informal brainstorming and creative collaboration. The RHUB servers boasts an impressive array of tools that makes this process easy, including application sharing, chat, whiteboard, and annotation features. Through web conferencing, it also becomes much easier for sales representatives to qualify leads as a result of increased interaction during the early stages of the sales cycle.

As the world of business grows more competitive, the ability to deliver information in real time becomes more important than ever. Web conferencing supports this need by providing the opportunity for enhanced customer communication. While traditional phone calls and even emails may be acceptable for casual communication, when you need to deliver important information to a client, the robust HD video web conferencing capability of RHUB make it possible to communicate more effectively and faster. Unlike with a phone call, web conferencing participants are able to examine charts and graphics while viewing gestures and facial expressions to ensure a clear and accurate dissemination of relevant information.

The RHUB servers also possesses an impressive suite of document collaboration tools that make it possible for participants to view as well as edit all types of sales literature as well as agendas, contracts, and more in an efficient and effective manner. As a result, you are able to interact with clients as if you were in the same room with them without incurring significant travel costs.

Whether it is developing leads, solidifying customer relations, closing a deal, or negotiating a sales contract renewal, web conferencing provides a host of benefits that make it possible to drive sales and reduce costs.
