Collaboration is a high priority for most large organisations, yet 56% of IT professionals don’t know how much they are spending on subscriptions and licenses for conferencing and collaboration solutions.
A recent Spiceworks survey commissioned by Lifesize reveals that, on average, large organisations use 4.4 different solutions (web, audio, video, chat, etc.) from three providers.
Lifesize CEO Craig Malloy warns that managing multiple systems increases costs and creates additional challenges to do with network limitations, service quality and IT management.
He said: “Managing multiple collaboration solutions from multiple vendors is complicated and chaotic and results in paying a premium for feature overlap, inconsistent experiences, slow adoption and reduced productivity. At Lifesize, we address this issue and inefficiency by consolidating a holistic suite of IT-driven and user-friendly collaboration tools – like video, web, audio, chat, recording and live streaming – into one offering.”
