Intelligent Energy is focused on delivering its clean energy technology and transforming the global consumer electronics, automotive and stationary power markets. Dispersed sales and engineering teams at Intelligent Energy use Polycom solutions to make informed decisions quickly and help reduce time to market to drive revenue growth.
“We have teams and offices around the world,” said Intelligent Energy’s Group Business Development Director, Julian Hughes. “We have found there is no better way to defy distance than to have a face-to-face conversation using video conferencing. It has allowed us to go to market faster and given us a clear competitive advantage, as demonstrated by the recent successful launch of UppTM, our game changing personal energy device.”
The integration of Microsoft Lync and Polycom RealPresence video solutions, powered by the Polycom RealPresence Platform, facilitates collaboration from conference rooms, desktops and mobile applications, ensuring teams can communicate effectively across the globe 24 hours a day. The combination of Microsoft Lync and Polycom video collaboration has helped to eliminate collaboration silos while unifying the dialling plans associated with legacy vendors, reducing the total cost of ownership.
Real-Time Collaboration with Customers and Partners
Intelligent Energy collaborates with customers and partners in real-time over video conferencing from early on in the design process, often connecting four different sites at once. This helps to resolve issues more quickly and reduces the need for customer visits, saving time and money for both parties.
“We pride ourselves on high levels of collaboration and communication with our global customer and supply chain base. This simply would not be possible without effective dialogue with our customers and partners. Video conferencing really helps us to embrace a collaborative approach and to understand needs and requirements,” said Hughes.
