HighfiveConferenceRoom.jpg 3 Problems Still Facing Voice Services Alexey Aylarov September 04, 2019 Interconnectivity, teleconference audio quality, and robocalling issues are still impacting voice services. Don’t Get Ripped Off with Video Conferencing Pricing Chris Heinemann July 30, 2019 Financially, the cost of video conferencing isn’t just high, it’s unpredictable. It’s time for a different approach. The dual trends of increased remote working and a shift to more open and shared collaborative in-office workspaces are changing how we think about the ways we conduct business. Walls have disappeared, huddle rooms and communal spaces have popped up, and team-based work has begun to replace individual contributions. Which got me to thinking: How truly connected are remote workers?As revealed in a Harvard Business Review poll, the answer may be “not very.” In the poll, remote workers indicated they often feel isolated or left out when it comes to true collaboration with their colleagues.The shift in how people work is accelerating due to the rise of younger, tech-first workers. Millennials aged 21 to 36 — already the largest generation in the U.S. labor force — will account for more than 75% of the workforce by 2025, according to the Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. Today’s younger workers not only are more comfortable working in groups and collaborating, but also desire an always-on, uber-connected workplace.So, what can your organization do to connect and engage with an increasingly dispersed workforce? A good place to start is with a combination of smart meeting spaces with intuitive software. In the past, two factors hindered the ability to create a more dynamic meeting space in multiple locations:Cost and complexity of setting up and operating a more connected meeting roomQuality of the meeting itselfAdditionally, non-integrated software and hardware platforms present various hurdles to a more efficient intelligent meeting. Users struggle with PIN codes, dial-in numbers, passwords, downloads, and plug-ins — common challenges we’ve all experienced over the years.The intelligent meeting room overcomes these hurdles with integrated hardware that’s powered by smarter software for a more enjoyable experience by both IT and end users. In a Highfive meeting room, participants don’t need to fumble with technology or suffer through a poor quality experience. Rather, they enjoy a more usable, collaborative environment. Highfive has always delivered an integrated, intelligent platform that makes for an easy, more seamless and collaborative meeting room experience.This approach has been the Highfive model, or what we like to call Meetings Reimagined. Highfive delivered the first integrated hardware and software platform more than five years ago, the only video conferencing solution built on WebRTC and running on the Amazon Web Services hyperscale cloud. This puts elegant hardware paired with smart software into every intelligent meeting room, delivering the audio and video intelligence needed to deliver exceptional, low-touch, high-quality meetings complemented by enablement, support, and services. Then, Highfive ties it all together with an affordable monthly per-room subscription, eliminating the need and additional cost of individual user licenses. And because Highfive was built on WebRTC from the start, meetings start within the browser with no software download required, and every meeting starts on time with just a single click from any meeting room or any device.With expanding remote workforces, multiple company locations, and more geographically dispersed partners and customers, the intelligent meeting isn’t a nice-have, but a must-have. Video conferencing technology should bring us closer together as our workplaces become more diverse, making us more empowered, efficient, and productive.If you’d like to take a deeper dive into what makes an intelligent meeting work, check out the recent evaluation by Let’s Do Video.Tags:News & Viewsintelligent meetingsconnected meeting roomHighfiveVideo Collaboration & A/VDigital WorkplaceEndpointsFuture of WorkSponsored PostVCaaS Articles You Might Like Video Communication Must Improve, Even as It Hits Its Stride Michael Helmbrecht September 12, 2019 Video conferencing at work has boomed.

Market crash: 2 FTSE stocks I would invest £1,000 into now! I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Jabran Khan has no position in any shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. After March’s market crash, there is a very real possibility that the market could crash again. With that in mind, here are two stocks that represent good investment opportunities, in my opinion.Market crash opportunity #1I believe the UK’s largest listed tech company Sage (LSE:SGE) represents a unique opportunity. The accounting and payroll software giant was recognised in 2017 as the world’s third largest supplier of enterprise resource planning software. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Pre-market crash, Sage’s share price sat comfortably close to 800p per share. When the crash started, it hit a low of 534p. But its current per share price has recovered somewhat to be close to 750p, which is a positive sign.Sage has been focusing on migrating its customers to its cloud-based subscription service. A trading update for the nine months to 30 June was released yesterday. Recurring revenue for this period increased by 9%. This was underpinned by the subscription growth of over 22%. Overall, total group revenue increased by 4.1%. In Q3, when the market crashed, Sage’s recurring revenue grew by over 6%. I think this shows excellent defensive quality, against a backdrop of the pandemic and economic uncertainty.Sage possesses a healthy balance sheet with cash and available liquidity of £1.2bn. I believe market conditions will continue to normalise and Sage can shift its focus towards new customer acquisition once more. It has a good record of growing revenue, earnings and dividends, which indicates a positive outlook. Sage is one stock I firmly place in my ‘defensive’ category and I really like the look, model and direction of the business. I still think its share price will rise as the markets attempt to recover from the market crash.Opportunity #2I wrote about defence, security and aerospace powerhouse BAE Systems (LSE:BAE) in February prior to the market crash. BAE had just released its full-year results and at the time, its share price stood at close to 660p per share. Sales and revenues rose impressively, acquisitions were being negotiated and all was well.Fast forward through the market crash and performance has been affected like every other firm, but not a lot has actually changed. However, you can pick up the shares at less than 500p. At the height of the crisis its price even lowered closer to the 420p mark. I consider it too good an opportunity to miss. A trading update released by BAE last month focused on productivity and getting its employees back to work. BAE said orders and demand remained in line with expectations despite the pandemic, which is encouraging. As restrictions are beginning to ease, BAE also believes the second half of this year will be a normal six-month period, which is a confident stance to take. BAE is a relatively ‘safe’ investment in my opinion. It mainly deals with governments, which means they will pay their bills on time. Furthermore, it has tens of billions worth of backlogged orders. It has a great dividend yield creeping towards the 5% mark and a cheap share price, with a price-to-earnings ratio of 10. There is not much to dislike, I feel, and since the market crash BAE is cheap to pick up. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

It’s a major health concern that Episcopal Relief & Development, in partnership with the Zambian Anglican Council and other stakeholders, is determined to combat through the implementation of a pneumococcal vaccination program later this year.The initial vaccination program will focus on Zambia’s Luapula Province, which borders the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north.“It’s made up of some extraordinary communities that are very rural, very isolated, where people live along waterways, so it’s an extremely difficult place to work,” said Abagail Nelson, Episcopal Relief & Development’s senior vice president for programs. “But it’s a place where we’re pleased to work and a place where the church has a lot of community-based networks and the capacity to bring the vaccine to children.”According to the World Health Organization, pneumococcal disease is responsible for the deaths of more than 1.5 million people worldwide every year, including more than half a million children before their fifth birthday.The pneumococcal vaccine has been available in the U.S. since the early 1900s and has been recommended since 2000 for all children aged 2 to 23 months. But only very recently has the vaccine been available in the developing world.Zambia is planning to introduce the vaccine into its health system this year, but the ministry of health relies on organizations such as the Zambian Anglican Council and Episcopal Relief & Development to ensure that treatment reaches the children who need it most.“It’s a little known fact that acute respiratory infection kills more children than AIDS. If you address diarrheal-related diseases, pneumonia-related diseases and malaria, you’re really getting at the three leading killers of children under five, particularly in contexts like Luapula,” said Nelson.The program in Luapula has the potential of reaching 250,000 children whose lives are at risk from contracting pneumonia as well as other diseases. “We’re looking at what’s called an integrated child health program … that also helps increase nutrition and reduce deaths from diseases such as malaria,” said Nelson. “If we can address these illnesses, of course, children will live, they will thrive, and they will contribute to the greater health and community life of their country.”Episcopal Relief & Development has worked in partnership with ZAC — the body that represents all five dioceses and health and training institutions for the Anglican Church in Zambia — in combating malaria through the NetsforLife® program, an Episcopal Relief & Development program partnership that has won awards and earned widespread respect for saving millions of lives in Africa.The pilot project was launched in Zambia in 2005, and a decrease in malaria cases of more than 50 percent has been reported in some areas.Due to previous success with its malaria prevention initiatives in Zambia and an earlier food security program that began in 2000, the ZAC and Episcopal Relief & Development partnership is a “model for the rest of Africa,” Stephen Dsizi, technical director for NetsforLife®, told ENS during a three-day training program in July 2011 in Lusaka, Zambia.The training program brought together international and local experts in health issues and representatives from relief and development organizations to prepare Zambian Anglicans for the pneumonia immunization program.Nelson told ENS that the Zambian Anglican Council has a “fantastic reputation with the ministry of health and other ministries. We’re privileged to be able to support them as they continue to reach out in the communities and be a strong presence for people in need.”The Zambia Anglican Council, under the directorship of Grace Phiri and in partnership with Episcopal Relief & Development, “has shown how to develop and implement projects that are a demonstration for the globe,” Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, who participated in a portion of the July 2011 training in Lusaka, told ENS at the time. “It’s remarkable work that is integrated and holistic and serving the whole community.”— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.
