I love stats!
When I was at ESnet (http://www.ecs.es.net) I built Perl programs to sift thru the Gatekeeper stats to give me almost any bit of interesting usage information I could calculate.
Until today, my stats were the only video conferencing industry stats I had ever seen.
The press release I got today from IOCOM changed all that! 🙂
Being greedy, I asked for more detail (I will post here if I get more..), but, I also held back as I could have asked for MUCH more. 🙂
Summary: Video conferencing usage on Visimeet is increasing by leaps and bounds…here is the press release.
NOTE TO OTHER CLOUD BASED VIDEO CONFERENCING PROVIDERS: Release your stats, I will post!! 🙂
Chicago, IL, October 4, 2012: IOCOM, a leading provider of universal video conferencing solutions, today announced a significant growth in customer usage of their software-based collaboration platform, Visimeet. Over the last year, several of IOCOM’s most active customers held over 200,000 meetings covering more than 500,000 hours or 30 million minutes. The majority of these meetings are held between at least two different endpoints (telepresence suites, PC desktops, Linux laptops, iPads, etc.).
“Many of our customers work across multiple locations and need a reliable collaboration solution that allows them to accomplish their business goals without having to spend resources on travel. We’re glad that Visimeet is that solution,” said Gary Refka, Vice President of Operations and Customer Support for IOCOM. “The numbers clearly show the value Visimeet brings to our clients, who have, at most, only one person across the entire organization dedicated to supporting the system, only further emphasizing its ease of use and reliability.”
IOCOM notes that customers most often take advantage of data sharing functionality during collaboration sessions in which users can share data, in real time and its native resolution. Other features include instant messaging, file transfer, independent camera and audio control, and desktop sharing.
“Providing our customers with the best possible tools to enhance their productivity is our number one priority, and with Visimeet’s interoperability across Mac, PC, Linux, iOS, and Android devices, more and more organizations are turning to IOCOM to fill their video conferencing needs,” said Tim Hackett, IOCOM CEO. “The bring your own device (‘BYOD’) trend is thriving in many corporations today and we are pleased to have compatible collaborative solutions”.
Visimeet is a software-based solution that keeps people connected through video, audio, and data conferencing and gives users the ability to transfer files and share and view data in real time.
