Challenges

 

 

Jumbo Maritime produces solutions for offshore and subsea transportation. With offices in Europe, Asia, Australia, North America, and South America, reliable communication tools are a top priority. 

 

Without a reliable video conferencing tool, many of the company’s most important meetings needed to be held in person, which required extensive travel (and high travel expenses) for employees. For example, one team member made regular international flights for a two-hour meeting.   

 

As an offshore transport company, much of Jumbo Maritime’s business activity takes place in open water, which means that teams active on ships, without access to a data network, could not join regular video meetings. 

 

So, they needed a service allowing all employees, regardless of location, to connect to the rest of the company. They also didn’t want to manage their data lines, so they were looking for a system that could be switched on or off as required.  

 

 

 

Why Pexip?

 

 

The primary benefit of Pexip was the global network coverage they could provide. While Jumbo Maritime had some fixed video location experience, cloud video conferencing opened new possibilities for their communication strategy. 

 

Due to time zone differences, their global sales teams hold two daily update calls (AM & PM). While previously audio-only, these meetings are now done via Pexip, which saves money and improves collaboration.

  

Another benefit of Pexip was the ability to create dedicated virtual meeting rooms (VMRs) for long-term projects and add external stakeholders with various video capabilities. 

 

As many projects require long-term collaboration with external stakeholders, working groups can be assigned a VMR domain for the duration, making it easy for people with various video systems to join projects with a simple routine. 

 

Perhaps best of all, with Pexip, teams active on ships in open water — without access to a data network — can join meetings via audio dial-in, meaning they can stay in the loop no matter where they are.
