South West Comms boosts videoconferencing credentials

South West Communications Group has boosted its credentials in the videoconferencing space with a brace of accreditations bagged by a senior technical specialist who passed examinations set by LifeSize and Alcatel-Lucent.

Brian Lodge, Group Engineering Director, said: "We ensure our engineers' professional development is kept up to date so they can keep abreast of all the latest developments in communications technology.

"We have recently gained Cisco Premier Certification to add to the long-term accreditations we have nurtured with our telephony and data services partners, and we are proud to add videoconferencing expertise to our technical arsenal."

Videoconferencing has become a vital business tool for multi-site meetings, noted Lodge.

He added: "Ever since we began offering videoconferencing as one of our products, many of our existing customers have expressed an interest in making use of this technology to help them save on substantial fuel and travelling costs, to make better use of their staff's time and to reduce their carbon footprint."
