March 31 2015, Moscow, Russia – The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation has implemented the TrueConf Enterprise video conferencing solution to connect their massive communications network. The system of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of Russian Federation unites 178 chambers of commerce and industry, more than 200 business unions on the federal level, and 500 business associations on regional level, more than 70 Russian business councils with foreign states and 50,000 enterprises.
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation is a non-governmental, non-profit organization which represents the interests of small, medium, and large businesses, and spans across all business fields, including industry, external and internal trade, agriculture, finance, and services.
The Chamber wanted to unify its system subunits into a single Unified Communications network. This was achieved with a video conferencing system from TrueConf. Currently, more than 1500 employees are connected to the video conferencing server, with the number of users growing every day.
The decision to implement TrueConf Enterprise was based on its capacity to provide secure video conferencing sessions with no need for an Internet connection. Other benefits include the availability of client applications for all popular platforms, online events using WebRTC technology, user account control capabilities, and VoIP and legacy equipment integration. The system also features UDP Multicast, which allows users to share data directly without server interruption.
The Chamber’s experts reported that TrueConf video conferencing allows them to boost the decision making process as they conduct daily meetings, educate their employees, and utilize various collaboration tools for employee enrichment. WebRTC-based video conferencing has been integrated with the Chamber’s website, so now anybody can watch their streams in the Video Conferences sections of the website without the need to install any software or undergo a registration process.
“TrueConf Enterprise not only successfully accomplished all our aims, but did that with profit. After we implemented TrueConf video conferencing and automated our VC facilities, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation became a platform for events, international forums, regional presentations, and union sessions, including those in paid video conferencing mode. This allowed us to cover the implementation costs and benefit from this venue. We have also lowered our expenses on intercity and international negotiations,” says Vladimir Gubernatorov, Presidential Advisor at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of Russian Federation. “Moreover, we have increased the number of new members among business owners and representatives from the regions of Russia and CIS. This widens our involvement in discussion of important matters, law improvement process, and finding solutions alongside with other representatives of business community.”
TrueConf CEO Michael Gotalsky says: “TrueConf, the leading developer of video conferencing solutions in Eastern Europe has wide experience in the implementation of video conferencing in public, educational, and financial institutions, along with enterprises of various business fields.”
“The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation hosts the largest Russian and international events in video conferencing format. They have organized more than 100 such events in 2014 alone. I think that the Chamber’s decision to implement TrueConf Enterprise completely complies with its motto “For the benefit of business. For the benefit of Russia”.”
