IVCi Customer Profile: Portman Holdings

Portman Holdings Uses High Definition Video Conferencing for Long Distance Collaboration

By Nina Parker

The high definition video conferencing solution implemented by industry expert IVCi helps reduce travel and improves communication across this real estate development firm's international locations.

The challenge

Portman Holdings is a real estate development firm with headquarters in the US and satellite offices situated across the globe. Collaboration on projects often takes place among team members across corporate locations, who share ideas and review intricate documents containing architectural models and design drawings.

When members of remote offices needed to work together on projects, they had to make costly international trips which could take up to a week, and valuable time was lost in transit. Audio conferencing was often used as an alternative to travel, but Portman Holdings CIO Simon Bailey believed it lacked the positive benefits of being able to see the participants at the remote sites.

Mr. Bailey and members of the Portman Holdings executive management team recognized the company's need for an efficient means of holding face-to-face meetings that would provide an alternative to international travel. Mr. Bailey began researching video conferencing systems that would provide the human connection that he feels can only be achieved when people can see each other.
