September 28, 2017 Hackensack, NJ – Vidyo, the leader in integrated video collaboration technology, today announced that it has been named a visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Meeting Solutions.* A pioneer of the video conferencing industry, Vidyo has a long legacy of innovation, breaking new ground and setting the standards for video communications since 2005.
“We are pleased to be named a visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Meeting Solutions,” said Vidyo CEO Eran Westman. “Advances in digital technology have made it vastly easier to transact, but digital interactions lack the human touch. Sometimes that’s great, but some interactions still require a face-to-face connection particularly if they are complex or emotional. Video adds an extra dimension to customer engagement, increasing satisfaction and delivering better outcomes to businesses and their customers. We’re proud to be recognized for our vision.”
Vidyo customer Diamond Credit Union enhances the member experience by re-creating the in-branch experience remotely. The benefits went beyond what was anticipated, when a hearing-impaired member was thrilled to be able to utilize lip-reading over video while speaking with a mortgage expert.
Vidyo-powered technology at the Children’s Hospital of Colorado recently helped a mother keep her job when one of her twins was diagnosed in-utero with a life-threatening heart defect. The mother avoided 8-hour drives to see a fetal cardiologist by undergoing ultrasound examinations locally while connecting to the specialist on video, and successfully delivered her babies.
In addition to out-of-the-box applications for video conferencing and customer and patient engagement, Vidyo extends its platform to developers and enterprises with its platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering, vidyo.io.
“Vidyo’s visionary role in the telemedicine industry will be demonstrated at its inaugural Healthcare Summit, where Vidyo partners and customers, clinical and technical leaders in telehealth, will re-imagine and re-envision the future of virtual care delivery through telemedicine,” continued Westman. “Vidyo’s long-heralded vision for a video-enabled world is at our doorstep. We believe that we are enriching human experience by visually connecting the world. We’re gratified that our customers agree.”
