Conferencing Zone Week in Review: InfoTrax, Zoom & More

August 19, 2017

Welcome back to the week in review, where we take a look at all the top stories making headlines in the Conferencing Zone this week.

The week started off with the news that InfoTrax has entered into a new corporate partnership with conferencing provider Zoom. Under this new partnership, Zoom’s Web conferencing capabilities are now integrated into the InfoTrax distributor back office application and mobile app, Evo Engage. Find out what this means for users HERE.

Next up, we looked at various use cases for video conferencing. According to India’s Department of Justice, as of November 2016 there were 52,000 divorce cases in the state of Kerala; 50,000 in Bihar; 46,866 in Madhya Pradesh; 11,862 in Delhi; and 5,466 in Uttar Pradesh. That’s 166,194 total divorce cases taking place in India, and that’s only in five out of 29 states within the country. To handle all of these cases, India is now requiring all divorces cases to be handled via video conference where possible. Find out how this will help the situation HERE.

We also took a look at how video conferencing can be used to help drug & alcohol patients with their transition out of the hospital. Waynesboro Hospital in Pennsylvania does not have the resources to employ a full-time case worker. By the time a caseworker from another county arrives to speak with patients about their transition, they’ve usually already left the hospital. Video conferencing has the power to change this predicament, though. Everything you need to know is HERE.

Finally, the week rounded out with a look at the bigger picture. A new report from Transparency Market Research highlights positive trends in the conferencing market, with the firm forecasting that the video conferencing market will be worth $8,958.7 million by 2025. This prediction represents an expansion at a CAGR of 8.3 percent during the forecast period between 2017 and 2025. All the details are HERE.

That’s all for this week. Come back next week to read all the latest news in the Conferencing  space.
