International Data Corp estimates 110 million mobile workers in the United States, more than 20% of which they categorize as mobile professionals. Businesses, small and large, are recognizing the benefits of making their workforce more distributed and more mobile. HD video conferencing is a tool in their arsenal that makes remote collaboration productive and cost-effective.
"HD Video conferencing offers an improved collaboration experience for mobile workers, making the technology more mission-critical than ever before," said Scott Chambers, COO of Pacific Business Centers (PBC). "Deployment throughout our portfolio fits our mission of providing mobile workers with the entire workplace toolkit to support them, wherever they are."
"As our clients are increasingly mobile, we need to move their fully-functioning workplace along with them" said Becky Simi, PBC''s Managing Partner in the San Francisco Peninsula. "This is why we are partnering with companies like Cloud Virtual Offices and Liquidspace, to help our clients be fully functional anywhere. HD video conferencing fits that mold, particularly when a Skype connection or a web conference falls short."
Cloud Virtual Offices provides Virtual Office solutions to mobile workers out of several hundreds of locations in North America, an increasing number of which are equipping themselves with HD video conferencing equipment compatible with PBC''s. Virtual Offices are subscription-based programs that let mobile workers use non-dedicated offices, conference rooms and touchdown workplaces. LiquidSpace is a mobile app that helps anyone find a great place to work and book it real time.
Video Conferencing provider InConference will handle installation for the entire portfolio. PBC selected InConference because of their comprehensive approach which includes equipment, training, management, and bridging relationships with video brokers.
Northern California locations in San Jose, Walnut Creek, San Mateo, and Sacramento are set for immediate implementation. The rest of the portfolio will follow soon.
