Improving Video Conferencing Adoption and Utilization
Analyzing a comprehensive list of adoption metrics, making correlations, and setting goals against company’s of a similar size if the route to success. Below you will find the steps we recommend to Vyopta users.
Drill into your analytics system to find your top and bottom ten video hardware endpoints. Then, review the number of calls and types of calls for those endpoints. From there, you can effectively assess whether or not you need to redeploy or repurpose underutilized systems by viewing a side-by-side comparison.
Determine which types of devices and endpoints users prefer to communicate with internally and externally. For example, you can analyze the number of meetings to determine the effectiveness of your deployments.
Review active endpoint utilization, and compare software/hardware endpoint usage to find trends you can leverage.
Leveraging Video Conferencing Usage Benchmarks
Our metric of choice to determine how you stack up against other organizations of your size is annual video minutes. Although there are a great deal of options for measuring video usage, annual video minutes are quantitative, available in most video conferencing vendor solution analytics, and simple to compare to other organizations.
