Challenge


For Statkraft, video is a business critical communication and collaboration channel. Every day, about 30 000 minutes is spent in video meetings. There is not much room for failure.  All employees are responsible for their own video meetings and there is no video administrator. That is why it is important that the technology used for video collaboration is easy to use, which wasn't the case. 


Statkraft needed a simple way to call into Skype meetings from video rooms, and one consistent way of scheduling and starting video meetings. In other words: having the same procedure wherever you are. 

 

Solution

Statkraft's goal - to help meet the world's demand for clean energy -  require seamless video conferencing across all offices, and that’s where we fit in with our solution: Synergy JOIN. 

Deployment

According to Dagfinn Nuth, consultant at Statkraft, deploying the software was quick and simple: "Installing Synergy JOIN was easy" he says.

Statkraft ran a POC with support from Jan Racansky, one of our saels engineers. After that, there hasn't been any further need for support. "Updates run smoothly" Nuth says.

Result

Employees love the "green button" and don't miss the hassle of having to find conference ID etc. to join a meeting.  


Statkraft can now focus on what they do best; producing clean energy, for a greener future.
