The reality

Connect with colleagues, effortlessly

When you get in touch with someone socially it’s probably through an app or a social networking site. Technology makes it simple.

You expect it to be just as easy to speak to colleagues, wherever they are. Especially with smart things like video conferencing. But too often something goes wrong, and it can be really frustrating.

If you want to stay ahead, you need ways of working with people that won’t let you down. Even when you’re on the move. We call ours collaboration tools. They’ll help you work together quicker and smarter.

Giving you the tools and technology to unlock new ways of working.

Find out how people can collaborate – wherever they are and in whatever way they need to, while you keep control of cost and security.

The problem

68% of people want better ways of working together in the office and on the move.

We’ve all been there. You spend ages on a project and finally you’re about to have a virtual meeting so you can get it all signed off. But just as you begin, the screen freezes or the audio drops. It happens so often that eventually you stop bothering with video and audio conferences. They’re too much grief.

It’s a shame because face-to-face meetings help build better relationships. That’s good for business. And having them online also saves you a lot of time and money.

So why is it difficult to connect with someone at work? There’s really tight security for a start. Then you might not have the latest software, or things might not be configured correctly. You could be baffled by too many options. And there’s a good chance you haven’t been trained to use any of them properly.

How we can help

Working together quicker and smarter

Pitch perfect audio conferencing – for less

We put voice on the network, so it’s up to 30% cheaper than normal. It also means you can do lots of clever things.

You’ll have Dolby sound so your voice will seem much more natural, and background noise will be cut out. When you wear the stereo headset, you’ll hear people talking from different directions. So it’ll be like everyone’s in the room with you.

And there’ll be no drop-offs. You don’t need a lot of bandwidth and our network puts voice first, so you’ll never miss what anyone’s saying.

Crystal clear video conferencing – for less

You’ll be able to work with any of your colleagues around the world from your desk. Or from your mobile. It’s easy to click in, with no configuration. And that applies to everyone, not just the confines of your own organisation. Customers, partners, and suppliers, too. You can even share documents and edit them together in real time. It’ll feel like you’re sitting in front of each other.

You won’t have to worry about the image breaking up. We also configure our networks to prioritise video as well. And it can all be done in the cloud, so it’s cheaper.

Working together on the move – for less

Nothing stops when you’re on the move. We’ve got the biggest and fastest 4G network in the UK, as well as the best Wi-fi coverage. That means more than five million hotspots in the UK and almost 20 million worldwide. With one of our apps you’ll never miss an audio or video conference if you’re out and about. And it goes without saying that we’ll keep everything secure.

Being out of the office doesn’t mean your bill will go through the roof either. In fact, if you make calls over the web, you could save more than 45%.

And on top of that, we have more than 7,000 corporate and public customers using our global managed network.

We know how to make setting up easier

We have something called shared access, which makes it faster and cheaper for you to roll out new technology.  You can also use our tools, including apps, to help you launch, manage and schedule conferences at the touch of a button – whether that’s on a smartphone or a desktop.

But, if you need something unique for your business, we’ll tailor our solutions and training for you. So you get the most from your investment.
