LifeSize Helps Spur Growth with HD Video Conferencing

To find an answer to their problem, they both turned to LifeSize (News - Alert) high definition video communication. LifeSize had the ability to change the way they did business and enable future growth.
Vanguard Truck Center executives conduct day-long monthly meetings with each of their remote dealerships in Phoenix, Tucson, Houston and Austin. While these meetings are vital, they cost the company 16 executives work days per month, limiting future growth opportunities.
Implant Seminars was also feeling the growth challenges in relation to travel. This Miami-based company provides continuing education for dentists and oral surgeons. The company’s founder, oral surgeon, Dr. Arun K. Garg, wanted to find a way to incorporate his dental implant surgery live from his clinic in Miami Beach to his training workshops held across the U.S.
With the help of LifeSize, Implant Seminars is able to bring surgery to life for 60 students at a time, seated in a comfortable auditorium watching the surgery live over video.
Since implementing LifeSize, both Vanguard Truck Centers and Implant Seminars have seen tremendous growth in their organizations. Implant Seminars plans to take the solution on the road with them to reach even more doctors. Vanguard is looking to open more dealerships in other markets across the country.
More and more organizations are finding the growth benefits that are available with high definition video communications. This technology also helps to reduce business travel costs, which can be significant, and contributes to the organization’s movement toward a more environmentally-friendly, or “green” approach to doing business.
