VoxAir Provides SMBs with Cost-Effective Video Conferencing

February 06, 2017

With today’s mobile workforce, it’s more important than ever to make sure that companies can reach their employees whenever needed, no matter where they are or what device they’re using. There are many chat options available, and email is always an option, but sometimes messaging simply isn’t enough to get the full collaboration experience. That’s why video conferencing has become so important recently—it’s hard to replace good old fashioned face to face communication.

There have been a couple problems in the video conferencing market over the years, though. In the beginning, connectivity was a major problem. Cost was also an issue—the hardware was expensive and oftentimes additional video conferencing hardware was required. There was also the issue of wanting to conference with multiple people at a time.  For a long time, these issues held companies back from investing in video conferencing solutions. However, Vox’s new VoxAir is looking to tackle all of these problems.

VoxAir is a Web browser based video conferencing solution designed specifically for small to medium sized businesses and virtual workforces that need to stay connected to partners, suppliers and customers. It can host between four to 12 concurrent participants at a time, yet remains inexpensive because pricing is provided per unique contact number.

With VoxAir, companies do not have to worry about spending thousands on hardware for a single boardroom. VoxAir can be used on laptops, desktops and mobile devices for mobile employees, making it easier for them to stay up to date with any and all information. Additionally, it has been designed to work with all video conferencing platforms, taking away the need to buy additional, costly hardware.

Mauritz van Wyk, senior product manager: Visual Communications at Vox, discussed the company’s determination to solve many of the problems associated with video conferencing by saying, “It was important to ensure that our solution was vendor independent – enabling integration and use across any formal conferencing equipment anywhere in the world, without the need to invest in costly video conferencing bridge equipment.”
