Founder and owner of Rabone Systems, Byron Rabone commented, “It’s critical to provide customers with a solution that is reliable, elegant and affordable.

The use of Dynalite Antumbra panels for simple and reliable control of basic functionality is a very cost effective and elegant solution. It also builds redundancy for the wireless user interfaces that provide the advanced functionality required from time to time.

Almost all wireless solutions suffer from denial of service at some point because of the environmental factor that is out of our control.

In an industry that can be tough for customers to determine the difference between Technology Integrators, Rabone Systems has watched some of its competitors survive and sometimes thrive delivering substandard results.

Now Rabone Systems offers the point of difference to its customers that really matters, a 5 Year Workmanship Warranty on all of its designed and implemented solutions and at no additional cost to the customer.

How can we afford to do it? We have been doing it for the past 15 years and you didn’t even know!

Now you have it in writing, signed and sealed by the founder and director of Rabone Systems.

You should ask the competition if they are willing to do the same…

Contact Rabone Systems for a technology solution and claim your 5 Year Workmanship Warranty now!

Affordable Video Conferencing for the SMB market

Enterprise Grade Video Conferencing for small to medium business is now affordable due to VaaS, “Video as a Service”. Consumer services such as Skype have created broader technology awareness and the SMB market is now attempting to deploy these services into administrative and even core operational aspects of their businesses.

Once a technology only deployed by Government and large enterprise typically due to cost; new business models are emerging to deliver the same Enterprise Grade Video Conferencing previously out of reach to SMB and now delivered as a service.

But why not just use freely available services such as Skype over a paid service?

Skype has been extremely successful as a consumer service for point to point video conferencing with individuals wanting one on one communications with another party and its high level of adoption has occurred through social interaction and networking.

However the limitations of Skype are quickly realised when trying to adapt it to a meeting room environment where standards based communications and compatibility with other systems is a must.

The use of video conferencing within a business environment has key triggers that are very different to Skype users. The purpose for business is to reduce travel costs, avoid downtime and improve productivity. This is why it is important for the service to have a high level of reliability and performance which free services such as Skype can’t deliver.

Enterprise Grade Video Conferencing is designed to work in greater dynamic environments; Field users with mobile devices, satellite offices with meeting room facilities and C level executive boardrooms create unique collaboration requirements and expect a high level of performance and reliability across these environments.

Providers such as Conferencing Solutions deliver scalable solutions that work on OPEX over traditional CAPEX models and offer migration paths from low cost mobile and desktop deployment, to large room based systems.

The requirement to purchase infrastructure is no longer needed as this component is delivered as a service, scalable to each customers demand and budgets.

How to successfully deploy video conferencing within an organisation

The level of success implementing Video Conferencing as a technology is tied closely with user adoption and the results can vary greatly between organisation based on work force demographic, technology implementation and education.

This can be identified with a small number of key elements:

 

Reliability – The technology needs to be able to deliver on demand and without denial of service or degradation of service. Most consumer based services fail to provide customers with a guaranteed level of service or support when utilisation has moved from convenience to mission critical.

Ease of use – The user experience must be a positive one regardless of a person’s technical skill. Many vendors are unable to achieve an exceptional user experience which is what drives fast technology adoption within any organisation.  

Flexibility – As demand increases so must capability and performance. The ability to have mobile users supporting multiple platforms, room based systems and full telepresence solutions must be achievable without making existing infrastructure incompatible and obsolete. Office to Office, Business to Business and Business to Consumer communications capability must be deliverable.

Education – The demographic of a business’s workforce can differ greatly between organisations and is closely related to core business and culture within the organisation. Some businesses may share the same core business but very few share the same culture. An education and training program must be implemented and tailored to suit the unique demographic of an organisation that will focus on improving weaknesses with technology adoption such as intimidation and knowledge retention.

 

Rabone Systems has specialised in Video Conferencing deployment with an emphasis of high user adoption through tailoring unique training and educational programs within each organisation. Through addressing the key elements a high rate of success is achieved with the maximum return on investment.
