Challenges

 

 

As a large international company with locations worldwide, Songwon Industrial Group was already familiar with videoconferencing for efficient communication and knowledge transfer. 

 

But as the demand for video use increased, the IT team also understood the need for a more flexible tool that could be used more effectively on a larger scale day-to-day. The team knew that if they could implement a user-friendly, reliable platform and persuade the first few users inside the company to adopt it, this could champion widespread adoption. 

 

Since video would be used to connect people internally throughout the company’s global operations and to an extensive range of external stakeholders, they would need a platform that could work with a wide range of user scenarios, technologies, and devices.

 

 

 

Why Pexip?

 

 

The Songwon IT team was looking for a service where users could manage video meetings for themselves.

 

They also wanted to find a managed service. Some global IT teams based in Frauenfeld (Switzerland) were looking for something that could be deployed globally but with support and implementation based on the trust and strength of local relationships.

 

When a trusted local vendor recommended they try Pexip, Songwon did so and was impressed. After a short trial, the Pexip Service ticked the boxes for functionality, user experience, reliability, and video quality. 

 

Word of mouth is the most significant factor in the continued growth and usage of Pexip. Today, video is used daily by people looking to collaborate with both other areas of the business and external third parties.

 

"People could see colleagues and other team benefiting from effective video meetings. They would tell each other how easy it was to use, so we could see the number of requests for video grow and grow."

James Lee Wong, Global IT Manager

"To have a video service that is so easy to use, with a very low barrier to participating in high-quality live video, gives us great confidence."

James Lee Wong, Global IT Manager

Results

 

 

With Pexip, Songwon Industrial Group has made large-scale video collaboration a day-to-day reality for their employees, with video meetings for up to 50 people being a standard occurrence. 

 

But as James Lee Wong, Global IT Manager at Songwon, explains, the actual measurement of the value isn’t how much money the company saves on travel: it’s having a video service with consistent and reliable quality:

 

“We can trust our employees have a great user experience without being bogged down by technical issues or other elements of the user experience we’ve seen negatively impact meetings in the past,” says James.
