Video Conferencing Made Easy
Are your Unified Communications truly unified?
Video Conferencing is awesome, and any doubts that existed regarding its usefulness have been extinguished. I am not aware of a single company who is not using Zoom, WebEx, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams in some capacity.
I prefer solutions that are simple to use and easy to implement. I have a litmus test I apply to determine if a product will be easy to use. If the set-up process is simple and the interface is intuitive, then the product will be easy to use.
On the other side if it takes multiple hours to days to set-up, and the interface requires a guide to use, then the product won’t be easy, nor will it be simple.
Covid-19 solidifies the need for simple, easy to use solutions. For us Thursday we were in the office and by the following Monday we were working from home. Fortunately, we had a video conferencing solution in place, so our transition was seamless. It doesn’t hurt that 90% of our company are engineers.
Other companies weren’t so fortunate. Rather than working from the office one day to off site the next, some companies experienced a lull as a video conferencing solution was researched and tested.
Recent conversations have highlighted the frustration with disjointed communications. Typical business communications today are made up of a phone system, a program for video/web conferencing. The video conferencing requires an application that has to be installed on user’s laptops and pc’s.
You need your communications to be flexible and mobile. A smart phone application is ideal, however not every mobile application is reliable. And for whatever reason vendors are not committed to updating their mobile applications, at least most vendors.
So how can you unify your communications?
What is RTC?
RTC stands for Real Time Communications and is an open standard. WebRTC allows for video and audio as well as screen sharing to occur via your web browser. WebRTC will work on windows, mac, Linux, and your smart phone.
Since WebRTC doesn’t require a third-party application it is the ideal platform for web conferencing. When your phone system supports WebRTC, your communications truly become unified.

3CX supports WebRTC out of the box. When you install 3CX you have access to the power of WebRTC. 3CX also allows you to schedule your web meetings from within 3CX and will enter the meeting into your Outlook or google calendar.
The unity 3CX provides allows for more efficiency and saves time. The ability to schedule your meetings from the phone system is simple and intuitive. The first time you schedule a meeting you’ll ask yourself why it wasn’t always this simple.
