  • The codecs whilst refreshed from older HDX ones have not really evolved in a significant fashion over the years. Everything feels like an add-on which requires multiple devices to be purchased for a fuller experience.
  • Reliablity has been good so long term the HW pays for itself however the maintenance and support costs continue to be a less attractive ongoing ROI.
  • Increasing server capacity is expensive and eventually you are forced to upgrade to a newer model. Turns into a balance of the here and now versus future proofing to a specific point.

  • I don't have any firm stats but I can promise there was a decrease in travel costs
  • It gives such a better experience connecting with people at a different site that it's easier to form a relationship. It's not some person on the other end of a phone call - you can see them and hear them.

  • Helped keep costs down at board meeting time. Everyone can just call in now and employees do not need to travel as much.
  • Helped organize meetings and bring customers together with sales.

  • We have been able to increase productivity by spending less time navigating through a phone directory to call someone, and to find out if and when they are available.
  • We can determine if someone is available through the notifications on the phone screen itself or use the instant messaging function, which are both linked to our Outlook calendars.
  • We are able to more quickly connect our students to resources and other professionals on campus by being able to anticipate who is available to meet with them or speak with them over the phone, before even having to make a call.

  • The units are not easy enough to use for some of people with fears of technology.
  • Video has saved people time and money when not needing to travel.
  • People have to pay attention when on video.

  • Once pexip integrates Polycom/Skype this will be a big win for us due to the RPTouch integrating the "one - touch join". This will increase adoption of video greatly.
  • Before the Group series with peripherals was implemented the cost of a video room was twice what it is today. Massive win.
  • Due to provisioning and automated firmware the IT involvement has been greatly reduced. No longer is there a need for manual changes to individual endpoints.

  • The introduction of video at the firm has, over time, significantly reduced travel cost.
  • The added value of Polycom is getting harder and harder to justify in most situations anymore. When low cost software video is delivering such great quality...it is hard to justify tripling the cost of a small room to add Polycom.
