Nefsis Identifies Scalable Video, Worldwide Access and Live Collaboration Tools as Key Online Training Requirements

Combination of features drive productive training sessions
for branch offices, remote employees and customers

SAN DIEGO — October 25, 2011 — Online services innovator Nefsis® announced today high-quality video, worldwide reach to business desktops and conference rooms, and robust collaboration tools are the main features leveraged by its customers using video conferencing for training applications. In addition, the company has found that live, instructor-led online training is one of its most popular applications. The company’s video conferencing cloud enables Nefsis to provide HD video conferencing services for businesses of all sizes seeking to instruct and educate employee and customer audiences around the world.

Nefsis provides multipoint HD video conferencing online services via its global cloud. Its dynamic scalable video technology ensures delivery of the best-quality video possible over virtually any network connection. This provides many advantages for companies using video conferencing for training purposes. In addition, the cloud’s firewall and proxy traversal capabilities are essential components for widely dispersed participants accessing the Internet from their own, separate networks.

“It was always a logistical nightmare trying to schedule training at one point in town for emergency medical personnel, while keeping their stations staffed,” said Mark Nichols, training chief for Arizona-based Peoria Fire Department. “We’ve started down the path of video conferencing with Nefsis to bridge this gap.”

Industries, such as banking and financial services, that consist of branch office locations also benefit, as training through Nefsis’ cloud-based delivery helps lower cost, improve the efficiency of training sessions, and provides a bandwidth friendly option for the corporate network.

“During video conferences, trainers can see trainees’ body language, which helps indicate whether they are bored or confused,” said Laurelle Campbell, Director of Employee Development at Advancial Credit Union. “And, trainees now see they’re all in the same boat and are willing to ask questions, and talk to each other about their learning.”

The collaboration features offered by Nefsis make the service ideal for training environments. These tools include desktop and document sharing, annotation over live apps, and media file sharing, such as the ability to play a training movie clip during a conference. In addition, Nefsis is one of a select few online services that can record all web, VoIP and video during a training session in industry-standard file formats, rather than in proprietary formats, which can become cumbersome when sharing with employees at later dates.

“Face-to-face education is highly effective, but in today’s tight economy it’s not always feasible for businesses to send employees or instructors to various locations for training, especially when technology is available as an alternative,” said Allen Drennan, Nefsis Chief Technology Officer. “We’ve found that our customers use Nefsis frequently for training, as trainers can reach virtually any employee, customer or reseller regardless of location. Instructors like to see whether their audience understands the material and high-quality, business-grade video is required for that. This is something Nefsis provides.”

Nefsis offers a full-featured, free trial to companies so they can easily test and implement a variety of HD and multipoint video conferencing systems, using widely available webcams and HD pan-tilt-zoom video cameras, with their existing Internet access. Nefsis also provides built-in diagnostic tools and a full suite of IT controls that regulate user access, security and video features.
