LOCAL businesses and organisations are invited to learn about the benefits of video conferencing at a lunch event being hosted by leading technology supplier Centerprise International.

The company, which has recently won contracts to provide IT services including video conferencing to the Treasury, is to hold two events at its headquarters, in Lime Tree Way, on June 12 and July 10.

Delegates will enjoy lunch and the chance to network, and will get to see a demonstration of Centerprise’s cutting-edge video conferencing service.

Those attending will also be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a 7” Samsung Galaxy Tab III, which the winner will take away on the day.

Marc Gravett, business development manager at Centerprise, said: “We know that businesses value the many advantages of video conferencing, including the fact that it means they can spend less time and money travelling to meetings.

“Video meetings are so much better than audio-only calls – they’re much more personal and you can be sure that you’re getting the full attention of the people at the other end without them being distracted by other things.

“They are a great way of building much closer business relationships with people who know and trust you.

“However, we’ve found that business leaders don’t like the problems that come with tradi-tional video conferencing – the amount of equipment they need to set up and the unreliability and high cost of traditional video conferencing set-ups can put them off.

“Our service is different – it’s hugely flexible as it can be used in dedicated video conferencing suites or on any PC or tablet across virtually any network. It’s highly reliable, it offers superb image and sound quality and it comes at a very low cost.”
