Globecomm Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: GCOM)
, a leading communications solutions provider, announced today that Rollins, Inc. (NYSE: ROL) a premier North American consumer and commercial services company, has successfully deployed the Globecomm Tempo
Enterprise Media Platform linking more than 10,000 employees across 500 domestic and international locations and eight pest control brands, including Orkin.
Ramiro Banderas, Director of Rollins Global Learning Network, said: “There is no other solution out there that offers everything that Tempo
is way ahead of the technology curve, integrating options and functionality in a way that is seamless, easy to use and very fluid.”
In deploying the solution, Rollins migrated off of its satellite network—which proved too limiting and costly to expand to it’s now numerous global locations and subsidiaries—while maintaining the network's full functionality to lower operating costs, expand the reach of the network and improve company ROI. An advanced suite of features includes live and on-demand interactive distance learning over internet, corporate wide area network, satellite or hybrid networks, enabling highly interactive learning through desktops, televisions, and mobile devices—at any time, anywhere in the world. The network is also being used for the company’s corporate communications and potentially for consultative sales applications.
The platform provides intuitive tools to create publish and distribute content through virtually any device.
Ed Behan Globecomm’s Vice President of Enterprise, said: “Tempo
combines key new interactive features, along with the ability to reach associates in the most effective and modern way—at their desks or on the go. This capability, coupled with the system’s voice, polling and chat leverages real-time analytics for highly dynamic interaction. Tempo
solves an integral problem that corporations have faced, until now. In the past, corporate training required different vendors to address different parts of the process. Smart leveraging of the newest technology brings all of these processes together in one integrated platform, saving costs and better utilizing resources.”
Applications provide specialized training opportunities. For Rollins, a live classroom enables a group of students to watch on a single television monitor and interact using Android "keypad" technology. The platform also integrates with existing enterprise software applications, including Active Directory and Learning Management Systems.
