A revolution in working trends is reflected in the shift from audio solutions to video, according to conferencing firm Konftel which, for the first time in its 32 year history is selling more video equipment than audio.
UK Sales Director Jeff May says video centric solutions now account for 65% of demand compared to standalone audio sales, with similar patterns on the continent.
"Eight out of 10 website enquiries are now video based. Everyone should be selling video – the genie is out of the bottle,” he stated.
May also noted that video has the potential for bigger and more lucrative reseller projects involving hundreds of units for remote workers, huddle rooms and larger meeting areas.
"Health authorities have invested heavily in video for internal meetings and triage, with schools also embracing the technology in a massive numbers," added May.
“The refitting of offices is bubbling away combined with more flexible working from home.
"Many people want to work more flexibly rather being tied to their office desk 9-5.30pm. Audio and video is helping revolutionise the world of work and there’s no going back."
