BCS Global New Video Meeting Space Aims to Maintain Worker Productivity While Easing Traffic Gridlock During Pan Am Games

July 6, 2015 | Telepresence Options


New online collaboration helps employees work from home without traffic and parking hassles when major events come to town

TORONTO--()--When the Pan Am Games come to town this month, traffic and parking are certain to become challenging. But good news has come just in time for those who may attempt to fight their way to the office during the Games. BCS Global Networks, Inc., a cloud-based video and collaboration solutions provider, has introduced Virtual Connect Polycom Powered, a personal on-demand meeting space. The meeting space uses cloud-based visual collaboration technologies as an effective means to communicate over video.

Virtual Connect Polycom Powered enables high-quality, face-to-face video collaboration through a variety of technologies from the boardroom, desktop, laptop, or mobile device - anywhere, anytime.

"Using video to communicate and collaborate is commonplace," said Dan Tanel, CTO of BCS Global. "Virtual Connect can be used to get work done from home without fighting the congestion that comes with major tourist events."

Tanel says businesses, along with government agencies, legal firms, transportation specialists, human resource recruitment teams and major event groups, are the types of organizations that use the video service to communicate with other employees, customers and business partners. Also, the service is environment friendly through the reduction of CO2 and enhances employee work-life balance.

The new meeting space is delivered with a self-service management portal that has been designed to simplify and expedite the on-boarding process. New users to the service can easily create a room and host a meeting in minutes. Users can sign up for a trial here.

Earlier this year, London-based BCS Global merged with Video Guidance, one of America's premier video conferencing companies. The new global enterprise links BCS Global's capabilities in Europe and Asia with Video Guidance's in North America. Video Guidance became a wholly owned subsidiary of BCS and retains the respected Video Guidance name and brand in the U.S.
