“We have teams and offices around the world,” said Intelligent Energy’s Group Business Development Director, Julian Hughes. “We have found there is no better way to defy distance than to have a face-to-face conversation using video conferencing. It has allowed us to go to market faster and given us a clear competitive advantage, as demonstrated by the recent successful launch of Upp TM, our game changing personal energy device.”
With teams engaged in the research and development of revolutionary energy solutions for a number of industries, the quest for efficient and clean technology demands instantaneous collaboration and content sharing. It is critical for engineers to share and discuss CAD and technical documentation in real-time and from any location. Video collaboration solutions from Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open, standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), play a key role in allowing teams to connect and collaborate, thereby accelerating the development of modular, low carbon fuel cell systems for customers and blue chip partners.
The integration of Microsoft® Lync™ and Polycom® RealPresence® video solutions , powered by the Polycom® RealPresence® Platform, facilitates collaboration from conference rooms, desktops and mobile applications, ensuring teams can communicate effectively across the globe 24 hours a day. The combination of Microsoft Lync and Polycom video collaboration has helped to eliminate collaboration silos while unifying the dialling plans associated with legacy vendors, reducing the total cost of ownership.Real-Time Collaboration with Customers and Partners Intelligent Energy collaborates with customers and partners in real-time over video conferencing from early on in the design process, often connecting four different sites at once. This helps to resolve issues more quickly and reduces the need for customer visits, saving time and money for both parties.
