ATLANTA, June 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- PGi, a business communications provider, has rolled out several new GlobalMeet Collaboration enhancements designed to improve how people, teams and enterprises productively connect and collaborate. With working from home, the new standard for the foreseeable future, businesses continue to demand more convenient ways to maintain virtual face-to-face interactions with remote colleagues, customers and partners.
PGi has added more HD video screens in its GlobalMeet Collaboration video conferencing solution and will deliver several new enhancements including G Suite integration, a virtual whiteboard and mobile scheduling.
- More webcams for more interaction. Experience crystal-clear collaboration with more HD video screens to allow for larger group video meetings and enhanced engagement.
- Work smarter with G Suite calendar integration. Gmail has more than 1.5 billion active users around the world. Now Gmail users will be able to seamlessly schedule, manage and join GlobalMeet Collaboration meetings from Gmail and Google Calendar.
- Brainstorm with a virtual whiteboard. Write, draw, annotate and collaborate on a virtual whiteboard to spark creative, organic conversations.
- Mobile video and scheduling. Webcams on mobile means you can see who is speaking even on a smartphone. Mobile upgrades allow simple scheduling on the fly with your native calendar app.
Since shelter in place orders began, GlobalMeet Collaboration has seen a 700% surge in webcam usage for virtual meetings. People are working from home and using video more than ever before to make connections and feel productive, and GlobalMeet Collaboration's video enhancements deliver against user trends.
"Our recent survey data identified several remote work trends before the COVID-19 outbreak," said Mark Roberts, CMO, PGi. "Working remote was one of the most important activities identified across all working generations. Video conferencing technology is now the norm for nearly every business and consumer working through remote work, virtual health appointments and homeschooling requirements. We're at a turning point and we will see remote work become a permanent choice for those that never even entertained the option before the pandemic."
PGi has powered virtual meetings and events for customers safely and reliably for nearly 30 years, helping people, teams and enterprises connect all over the world with advanced video conferencing and broadcasting. Never has this been more necessary than now as businesses worldwide have had to embrace work from home (WFH) for employees almost overnight.
