Havells India says the video conferencing deployment assisted the company to achieve significant savings in time, travel costs, and establish a better work-life balance for many employees.
Vivek Khanna, senior vice president (IT & Finance) at Havells, said: “The implementation of video and audio across 70 locations was another step in this direction, enabling a new way of conducting business for our teams in multiple geographies to communicate better and consequently increased efficiency in product development, manufacturing, and reviews.”
Polycom video conferencing solutions available in more than 70 video-enabled meeting rooms enable teams nationally and internationally to collaborate on many business workflows including sales, marketing, product reviews, plant interactions and more.
The company refreshed its existing deployment with new video and content collaboration solutions including the Polycom Real Presence Group 500, along with three year Polycom Advantage support services for streamlined onsite implementation.
In 2002, Havells introduced Polycom’s video conferencing solutions in 24 Indian locations to communicate between headquarters, branch offices and factories.
The upgraded video collaboration network is aimed at supporting business functions like Sales and Marketing, Finance and Human Resources to react to market opportunities and improve customer interactions while reducing Capex.
