 “People are very demanding and are always seeking the highest level of service. They just expect it to work! Videonor is very easy to use and their customer service team is always available for help and advice.”

 

Deployment

NTF has connected all of their existing videoconferencing endpoints on the Videonor platform and added web-based video clients for users without this equipment. Virtual meeting rooms facilitate the actual communications, which can alternatively be attended via classic phone conferencing.

Results

All clubs and stakeholders now meet face-to-face on a weekly basis over videoconferencing.

Competing clubs discuss practical details about their upcoming matches for the weekend, while licence holders plan the media interviews and broadcast logistics. With their new virtual meeting rooms, NTF can participate in every discussion to have the best possible overview of the decisions and agreements made during planning. Additionally, all meetings are recorded and can be shared and reviewed afterwards.

NTF is now looking towards the next phase of their engagement with Videonor, which would enable these meetings and presentations to take place on mobile devices.
