Why Pexip?



Balco first became a Pexip user in 2015. Since most of the company’s meetings happened between Balco employees and external consultants, interoperability was crucial.


Some of the primary features Balco was looking for in a video conferencing service were ease of use, simple integration to Outlook, the ability to use the service with their in-office conferencing infrastructure, and flexible subscription plans. 


That’s where Pexip came in. A big part of the decision-making was ensuring that the video platform could easily integrate with the hardware they already had, which included several large Cisco systems. 


The implementation and roll-out went quickly, and the company was pleased with how easy it was for their IT team to set up.


“The fact that you can sit in a conference room and have large video meetings where everyone calls into the virtual room is great,” says IT Operations Manager Torbjörn Blomster. “When you speak on the phone, it becomes a bit impersonal, but when you see each other on the video, you become more engaged. We are constantly buying more equipment and expanding the conference rooms with video.”

We don’t have to think or worry about whether Pexip will work well - it just works. And that’s how it should be for a collaboration tool - simple, reliable, and effective.

One of the main benefits of the Pexip-as-a-Service solution has been reducing the need for so much business travel. It has resulted in reduced costs of meetings, with increases in efficiency and user productivity, and improved sustainability practices. 

Balco has also seen a reduced need for IT support thanks to Pexip’s user-friendly interface and video knowledge base. The functionality and reliability of the Pexip solution have also allowed the company to focus on its business contacts without having to worry about the technology that enables them to communicate.

When the Covid-19 pandemic arrived in 2020, Balco employees were familiar with using Pexip daily. Whereas some companies found the shift to virtual meetings challenging, Balco smoothly transitioned to an entirely virtual meeting culture and could maintain productivity throughout the lockdown.

“Video meetings weren’t new to us when Covid-19 came,” says Torbjörn. “It was great that everything with Pexip was already in place and that we didn’t have to learn something new suddenly.”

Balco has for many years considered video meeting technology an essential long-term investment in their future. Since becoming a Pexip user, the service has helped the company steadily change organizational behavior. 

The movement toward virtualizing meetings gained momentum before the pandemic and will continue. Balco is pleased that they have navigated these changes with a reliable video meeting solution.
