By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor
Polycom (News - Alert), Inc recently announced that its RealPresence video solutions has enabled law firm Morris Polich & Purdy (MPP) to include new office locations and attorneys to serve a growing clientele from across the globe.
In a statement, George Brandon, partnership development leader at Morris, Polich & Purdy, said that, "MPP needed a powerful video solution to connect and empower managers to communicate and collaborate throughout the hiring process. Although in-person interviewing is still very important, Polycom has enabled MPP to build innovation into our recruitment process. Not only are we minimizing travel and maximizing hard cost savings, MPP is increasing productivity by replacing some business trips with video."
Video solutions deployed by MMP include the secure Polycom RealPresence Mobile app, the RealPresence Desktop software and group video systems supported over the Polycom RealPresence Platform. Recruitment is one among the vital Polycom video-enabled processes which has been effectively enhanced at MPP. The need for streamlining this process was critical based on the need for hiring the most ideal candidates to address the rapid growth of business operations experienced by the company.
George Brandon said that, "When a firm grows the way we have, it is necessary to be creative to support the needs of the business. Polycom offers exceptional technology and a best in class user experience, which has enhanced the way we work. Using Polycom for secure meetings, we increase our understanding and cohesiveness through visual connections in a way that is far richer than a basic phone call. Before implementing Polycom solutions, we had spent $3,000 for a one-time, international video conference call with a client. Now, we can host such calls whenever we want without incurring any additional cost. Internally, our managing partner and other leaders in the firm can use Polycom's mobile app to chair meetings from their tablets when they travel. Polycom helps us connect people wherever they are needed."
Employees at the company can participate in meetings regardless of their location via the Polycom RealPresence Mobile software app which can be downloaded to their smartphones and tablets easily. Furthermore, Polycom video collaboration also makes it easy for employees to improve client service by maintaining optimized person-to-person interaction cost-effectively. Inter-office staff meetings as well as other large events are supported by Polycom’s HDX Series room solutions.
