May 3, 2012 BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- Twin Cities-based Video Guidance, a leading visual communications company in the Upper Midwest, today announced it has formed a strategic partnership with British-based VQ Communications, which manufactures service delivery software for the videoconferencing industry.
Because video is rapidly moving into the main stream, complicated technical solutions are being deployed across multiple geographies, creating an expertise gap in an organization. Video Guidance is using VQ's software to simplify the management and user interface to allow greater scalability.
"Video conferencing users can book their calls and simply enter the video room at the designated time and start their pre-launched video meeting," said Mike Werch, president and CEO of Video Guidance.
VQ's bridge scheduling software (www.vqcomms.com) typically services businesses that are large users of videoconferencing technology, including Fortune 500 companies, several of which are Video Guidance's customers.
"As visual communications becomes a conventional business tool, many companies are looking to the experts to make the video conferencing experience as reliable as their phones," said Giles Adams, CEO of VQ. "We are delighted to be working with Video Guidance to provide the tools to create simple ways to access services. Together, we can help shape the future of visual communications."
From large campuses to rural communities, businesses are increasingly strategic about how they communicate and how they use video. Video conferencing, distance learning and telemedicine are just a few of the creative ways companies and organizations are using visual communications to meet their mission-critical business objectives.
Founded in 1999, Video Guidance (www.VideoGuidance.com) is privately held and headquartered in Bloomington, Minn. Video Guidance is an independent partner of Cisco, Polycom and LifeSize, and maintains strategic alliances with Conference Plus, On Stream Media Corporation, VQ Communications and Accordent. For five consecutive years, Video Guidance has been named to the "Inc. 5,000" list of the nation's fastest growing private companies, and is one of the top privately held companies in Minnesota and one of the top 150 telecommunications companies in the nation. In addition, Video Guidance has been named by The Business Journal as one of the "50 Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies" in the Twin Cities, and by Minnesota Business as "One of the Best Companies to Work For."
