Zoom has quickly become a household name as it’s become the go-to video conferencing solution for many consumers and professionals throughout the Coronavirus quarantine. It’s possible though that through this surge in popularity, many may not know all that Zoom has to offer in addition to their video conferencing solution. As a certified Zoom partner in Virginia, we’d like to take a few moments and provide a brief introduction to Zoom and the wide variety of solutions they can bring to your workplace.

 

 

 

Who is Zoom?

Headquartered in San Jose, California and founded in 2011, Zoom is a major leader in the video communications industry. They’ve developed a cloud-based platform that provides quality video, audio, collaboration, chat and more across essentially all of your devices from your phone, to your desktop, to your executive boardroom. It’s both in quality and ease of use that Zoom has thrived but there is far more depth to the potential Zoom solutions than you may realize.

 

How much does Zoom Cost?

One of the major draws to Zoom is that their most entry-level solution is available for free. From there, they offered a tiered price plan that caters to the specific size of your organization. You can view the complete comparison of price plans here.

 

 

Zoom Meetings

This is really what Zoom has become known for. A high-quality and easy to use video conferencing solution with a variety of platform features that set it apart. Up to 1000 attendees can participate in a meeting (on the Enterprise plus plan) and users can participate on virtually any device they own ranging from their phone to their desktop computer. The overall experience can utilize different features based on the plan your organization chooses. There are many different ways to ensure the security of your Zoom meeting and if you’re utilizing Zoom for any subject sensitive or private matter we recommend utilizing a trusted and certified integrator like VIcom to assist in the setup process. This will ensure that all proper security measures are taken. If you’d like in-depth information regarding these options, please utilize the form below and we’ll be in contact with you!

 

Zoom Rooms

In addition to the easy to use video conferencing platform Zoom has become known for, their software-based platform can also pair with a variety of hardware by industry-standard manufactures to provide a Zoom Room. These can start small, in just an office or huddle space and grow to as large as a training room covering all varieties of conference rooms and meeting spaces in between and essentially this solution allows you and your team to conduct and participate in Zoom meetings easily and efficiently using the hardware permanently installed in the space. This looks and feels like your traditional video conferencing experience but because Zoom is a cloud-based solution, participants of your meeting can join the meeting from wherever they are using their mobile and desktop devices or using another Zoom room. Zoom Rooms are priced per month and per room as an add-on to your Zoom subscription plan.

Zoom Phone

Zoom is not just a video solution, they also offer a complete enterprise cloud phone system. This solution is compatible with your traditional desk phones but truly sets itself apart by utilizing an app. This allows you to make and receive phone calls from your business phone number, share content, join video meetings and send and receive chat messages. It offers all the features you’d expect from an enterprise voice solution such as voicemail and the ability to transfer calls within your organization but also offers call recording, intelligent call routing with auto attendants and more. The Zoom phone solution starts at just $10 per month per user.

Zoom Webinars

Perhaps one of the most unique and timely solutions that Zoom offers is Zoom Video Webinars. This allows your organization to participate in live virtual events and high-quality broadcasting. Up to 100 live video panelists can participate with up to 10,000 viewers and your broadcast can meet your audience where they’re comfortable on both Youtube and Facebook Live. Additionally, Zoom offers On-demand viewing, Full-featured host controls, Reporting and Analytics, Event assistance and more. This is a great way to meet your clients where they are when they’re not able to come to you. Pricing for this solution starts at $40 per month per host for 100 attendees.
