Virtual meetings can sometimes bring about a number of challenges inside and outside the office; Pexip believes the key to trial without any error is automation.
The video conferencing solutions provider says it looked to leverage its technology platform to create the simplest possible solution for the end user.
However, Pexip says the simplicity desired by most was not a case of changing GUIs, or implementing more controls, it was a case of bringing automation to the forefront of the technology.
With automation, the entire process is simplified and saves precious times for businesses. Pexip recently teamed up with Logitech by making a virtual meeting a painless and completely automated experience.
The two companies were able to accomplish this by using the NFC (Near Field Communications) capabilities found on Logitech’s ConferenceCam series of products.
According to Pexip, instantly joining a conference works by using its Infinity Connect Mobile app on a compatible phone or handheld device, and then placing the device next to the NFC sensor. This in turn automatically establishes entry into the virtual meeting – within a matter of seconds.
Asmund Fodstad, CEO of Pexip, explains the ease of use as simply walking into a meeting room, putting down your mobile phone and automatically joining.
“No dialling, no remote controls, no hassles. You just join,” he says.
For Pexip, simplifying virtual meetings by making them as easy to join as entering a room will bring virtual meeting spaces into the forefront of business communications.
Essentially, the company hopes it will save time and money while maintaining a productive working environment.
