As organisations look to optimise their collaboration infrastructure, they seek a combination of features, flexibility and affordability that fits their business realities.
Hybrid work models are becoming the “new normal”
With businesses now working from both office and home, digital team collaboration is here to stay. In today’s digitised environment, fitting meetings into daily workflows, managing teams, and conducting virtual conferencing requires tighter integration of meeting rooms with the organisational digital collaboration platforms.
This requires a more strategic approach towards creating more effective digital working models both at offices and alternate workspaces like home. Most organisations work with AV integrators who can bring an understanding of the post-pandemic shift in the work paradigm and the requisite integration skills to make various technologies work together.
Proper integration between software and hardware is critical for collaboration tools to function optimally
Software-based video conferencing solutions (or cloud VC) allows organisations a great deal of flexibility on how their teams can access and use video for collaboration. They also help reduce the cost of video access for individual employees and in physical meeting spaces.
But getting Soft VC to work seamlessly and intuitively in existing meeting spaces can be challenging, as the platforms you choose need to be integrated tightly with the collaboration hardware in the room itself. In scenarios where the built-in laptop hardware does not meet the standards of audio and video quality required, organisations need to look for a better fit.
Hardware certified for your video platform (be it Zoom, MS Teams, Webex or others) is a better choice in such scenarios and can play a critical role in improving the quality of calls and the usability of the room collaboration environment. It saves teams considerable amounts of time, frustration and also meeting productivity when deployed in Rooms and integrated properly.
Whether you opt for Microsoft Teams Certified Devices or Zoom Certified Hardware, Actis helps ensure that the video and audio conferencing experience is at enterprise-grade levels But what’s important is seamless integration and customisation, for improved collaboration and shortened deployment time.
Efficient integration facilitates the utilisation of unified communications and video platforms to their full potential, delivering robust audio and video in conference rooms, virtual meetings and hence improving enterprise productivity.

Great Soft VC solutions, when implemented well can help in meeting the diverse requirements in the current hybrid work model, and beyond. This includes seamless communication across the organization and when teams need to work closely with remote participants.
For the individual user within the organisation, tools like Zoom and MS Teams provide a lot of benefits. They are easy to deploy among a large number of users and can be used with a wide range of devices. Their ease of use and low hardware requirements make them invaluable in the work-from-home scenario and also help when they are at their workspace in the office. The same consistent experience can also be transferred to a suitably equipped meeting room with ease, providing highly intuitive interfaces for meetings, training, town halls, webinars, and other forms of collaboration.
