Managed video conferencing helps industry plan for increasingly regular disasters such as adverse weather, transport strikes, security and health threats

London, UK – 7 January 2010 – mvision today announced that it is experiencing an upturn in enquiries for its managed video conferencing service as UK businesses consider its Video Homeworker Package to overcome the impact of the recent snow on their bottom line. The frequency of the threats to productivity and profitability now posed by snowfall, flooding, transport strikes and health issues such as pandemics is giving many organisations cause to reassess their disaster planning.

Terry Dwyer, Managing Director at mvision explained, “It is not unusual for an enterprise to spend 25% of its information technology budget on disaster recovery. That said, 2010 will continue the trend of 2009 for disaster recovery tools to cost as little as possible; with many CIOs turning to backup, storage, software and replication-as-a-service to meet their strategic needs. The same applies to communications technologies and enabling important meetings with customers, partners and suppliers to continue as usual.”

According to the Company, flexible and remote working practices play a pivotal role during ‘disasters’ and an increasing number of organisations are turning to managed services for a quick and cost effective solution.

In fact, Gartner estimates that as many as 40% (and rising) of enterprises use some form of managed video conferencing service The managed service model involves a fixed monthly cost, for which customers are provided with a dedicated video network, endpoints (the hardware) and supporting services such as a concierge facility, directory of contacts and helpdesk.

Dwyer continued, “By sourcing their video conferencing from a managed service provider, many organisations have circumvented the need to invest in proprietary infrastructure. Whether you are an SME or a large enterprise, a managed solution is an easier business case to make as it shifts the cost from capex to opex; a far more palatable option for the bean counters. Up and running with no operational disruption or up-front capital expenditure, a managed service need not have an impact on facility or technical resources.”

Some managed service options may even cost less as they are designed to scale with the number of users they service. This means not having to purchase excess inventory of functionality (hardware or spare licenses) in case the organisation need grows. Managed service users typically purchase what they need and can add or subtract capacity as required.

The Video Homeworker package is easy to set up and requires very little training. With no up-front investment required in hardware or infrastructure, it is designed for organisations that want to tightly control capital expenditure and operational costs. mvision provides three videophones, TANDBERG Movi licenses for high-definition desktop calls, full installation and support along with its fully managed service; this includes unlimited video calls and usage reporting.

According to mvision, organisations that equip their employees to work remotely can mitigate the significant risks posed by business interruptions resulting from snowfall, flooding, transport strikes and health pandemics; allowing them to continue trading effectively.
