Envisioning Lab for Remote Collaborators - video collaboration devices by Poly

Thanks to modern technology most of us have the tools needed to work from home and to be productive. However, we are all individuals and we all have our own set of requirements of how to bring our best self to meetings and ensure that best possible outcome of our encounters. Elisa Videra Envisioning Lab for Remote Collaborators reviews products to share how different types of products are performing in your most common remote environment and what are the optional use cases for the devices. 


Moving from legacy video conferencing to MTRs

The journey with Microsoft Teams Rooms (MTR) has been both eventful and fast paced with many teething issues experienced during the past two years. This has lead to many companies facing challenges in the transition from legacy video conferencing devices to MTRs. This development is still ongoing, and companies have only started to realise that they need support with the transition to ensure that the MTR rollout is successful.


Choosing a Service Provider for Microsoft Teams Rooms

Microsoft Teams Rooms integration requires experience in handling the ongoing shortage of conference room equipment and ensuring undisturbed workflow in the setup. However, that is just the start. A good service provider can help improve user adoption and increase reliability and IT efficiency to make the most of Microsoft Teams Rooms. 

According to Owe Ekman, VP Services at Elisa Videra, choosing Microsoft Teams as the platform for virtual collaboration should be a strategic decision within the organisation. In addition, it should be understood that the switch from other systems and technologies does not take place overnight. Transition is a continuous process that requires continuous management in order to be successful.  

But how can you estimate the value a Service Provider can bring to your business?

Information security has a highlighted significance for our operational environment as even the general management for the Central Government of Finland will be using the video conferencing service” says Antti Närhinsalo (Product Manager, Valtori). 


Don't plan, but be prepared

In the era of Hybrid Work, no organisation can aspire to be completely self-sufficient. Seamless collaboration between specialised partners provides both a comprehensive view of the wider picture as well as an opportunity to take advantage of the best possible expertise for any given challenge and situation. Collaboration with the ecosystem must also be orchestrated in a way that further opens the route to tangible results.  

“This is where Elisa Videra comes in. By combining the individual capabilities of ecosystem partners and refining them into comprehensive, scalable solutions, we can ensure that our ecosystem has what it takes to provide swift, reliable solutions to the challenges our clients are facing,” says Rasmus Almqvist, Director, Workplace Collaboration & Channels, Elisa Videra.
