FaceMe, the browser based video conferencing and collaboration system was recently awarded winners of the highly contested Virgin Business Challenge by the world’s most famous entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson.
Richard Branson noted the growing importance of mentoring and collaboration in successful business when awarding the inventors of FaceMe the title in March 2013, both key elements that are able to be delivered through FaceMe.
As part of their growing success, independent telecommunications solutions firm CommsChoice have gained Gold Partner status of FaceMe for the Australia.
Grant Ellison, CEO of CommsChoice said that his team were searching for a way to provide their customers access to an intuitive, can’t-go-wrong video and collaboration tool when they found FaceMe.
“We looked all over the world – from small to large vendors- looking for the best video conferencing and collaboration option for our clients that is secure and easy to use and we just couldn’t go past FaceMe.
“We’re really excited to be offering this technology to our customers. We know they’ll see the benefits in their bottom line, but also in their customer’s satisfaction and sales success,” said Mr Ellison.
With FaceMe there’s no need to download and install software to moderate or join a meeting. As soon as someone is online, they can be at the meeting. It is also highly secure with SSL encryption and avoids the risk of the user’s IP address being exposed.
Wayne Povey, Manager of AFL Tasmania has found a novel way to reduce the costs and time associated with having the Tribunals required by his code.
“Traditionally the Tribunal meetings were scheduled at night and required a lot of travel for the various people involved including players, coaches and managers. They were adding up to a pretty big expense, and often for only a very short meeting.
“Now that we’re using FaceMe, everyone just joins in – via their computers - from wherever they are. We need technology that was really easy to use, didn’t require any proprietary hardware or software downloads and was accessible from any browser.
“Many of our users are new at this video conferencing thing so ease of use and access were critical in ensuring it’s adopted by the wider group,” said Mr Povey.
FaceMe includes high definition video functionality, as well as instant chat, interactive white-board integration, screen sharing, video messaging, contact merging and file sharing. Mobility is catered for as well, with a FaceMe app available for both Android and Apple iOS devices.
