“We were delighted to be involved in the early release of 4com’s video conferencing facility,” said 4com customer Nik Little, Director of Emery Little Insurance Brokers Ltd. in England. “The communication to our remote offices which are spread around the country improved dramatically. A video call has much more impact than just a voice call and indeed we conducted meetings via the system which otherwise would have meant four-hour round trip journeys. The long term prospects for this facility are very exciting.”
