How to choose the best video conferencing solution

When it comes to choosing the best video conference solutions for your business, there are three main things to consider:

Make sure it’s scalable

The ability to scale usage up or down as needed is one of the biggest advantages of cloud video conferencing solutions. And with companies increasingly turning to remote employment and global hiring, the ability to quickly and easily onboard new employees is more important than ever.

With Dialpad's video conferencing solutions for business, whether you’re using the free plan or paid video conferencing plan, you can add and remove employees with a few clicks without IT help.

That means if your requirements grow unexpectedly, or you just need to meet a seasonal surge in demand, there’s no need to change your subscription or purchase expensive upgrades to your plan.

Double check its security and privacy features

Strong security is an essential requirement of online video conferencing solutions. Secure video conferencing solutions deploy a range of encryption and security measures to guarantee privacy in communications.

When you join a video conference with Dialpad, the connection is protected by DTLS, and once the conference begins, your audio and/or video is protected by SRTP, a secure protocol designed specifically for transferring media in real-time.

This applies to video conferencing room solutions too. The only thing is because these are custom setups, you probably will need your IT team's help with keeping conferences secure.

Ensure ease of use and adoption

Getting the right video conferencing software is one thing. You need to also make sure people are actually using the tool you choose. And the best way to guarantee adoption? Choose a platform that’s easy to use.

(Ease of use is an important factor for any business that’s deciding on the best way to set up video meetings, but it’s especially important when thinking about video conferencing solutions for small business, since you have limited resources and time. Because smaller companies tend not to have large IT budgets and dedicated tech teams, the best small business video conferencing solutions need to work straight out of the box.)

3 examples of how real companies and organizations are using video conferencing

Beyond your typical video conferencing features, Dialpad can be applied to a whole range of different video conferencing use cases. Below, we look at examples of how a growing business, an educational institution, and a non-profit foundation are using Dialpad.

ClassPass

As a global business that helps its customers access exercise classes in cities around the world, ClassPass needed a communications platform with a built-in video conferencing solution that would allow them to quickly and easily provide support where their customers needed it.

And because employees need to communicate with hundreds of gyms and studios around the world, they needed a platform that went above and beyond standard desktop video conferencing solutions in terms of access and usability.

Not only can Dialpad be used from Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS devices, but thanks to the web app, ClassPass contacts don’t even need to download anything to join a video meeting.

This was a game-changer for ClassPass’ outreach and sales teams.

It was definitely great to have browser-agnostic, platform-agnostic video. They could just hop on a browser and do their pitches.

LA Pacific U

When Los Angeles Pacific University needed a new phone system and contact center solution, they got both with Dialpad.

Instead of having separate tools for calls, video, and messaging, LAPU staff now use Dialpad to keep their communication channels aligned.

It lets you chat, start a video meeting—you can even send SMS texts—all in one place.

Juneteenth Observance

The National Juneteenth Observance Foundation (NJOF) has been instrumental in the passage of Juneteenth Independence Day legislation across the United States.

Because the NJOF is an amalgamation of grassroots organizations based around the country, getting everyone together for a call or video conference could easily be a challenge, as the foundation’s president Steve Williams was well aware.

Because a lot of our people are in rural places and we’ve got a lot of older people, we needed something that just worked. And Dialpad Meetings? It just worked. You don’t even have to put a PIN in.

Try a video conferencing solution that gives you more than video meetings

Instead of having one tool for messaging, another for phone calls, and something separate for your video conferencing software, simplify things by using a unified communications platform that gives you all those different channels in one place.

That means less toggling back and forth between windows and tabs—and fewer subscription fees to pay every month.
