The benefits of videoconferencing, such as reduced travel costs and easy connection with remote workers, are obvious, but videoconferencing is often thought to be expensive and well out of reach of smaller businesses. LifeSize Connections proves that’s not the case at all. It’s a cloud-based video conferencing solution that gives everyone access to high definition videoconferencing, whatever their budget or IT setup. Because the videoconferencing infrastructure is stored in the cloud no specialist equipment is needed and it can be set up in minutes for a low monthly cost. The end result is you can easily deploy videoconferencing to your remote workers, suppliers and clients, wherever they are located.
