Challenge 1: High Demand for Online Meetings
Due to the impact of the pandemic, Neocrm has experienced a surge in demand for online meetings, with monthly meetings increasing from 6,000 to 8,000. This has resulted in a meeting retention rate of over 140%, putting a strain on the performance, stability, and maintenance costs of the audio system in the meeting room.
Challenge 2: Poor Sound Quality of Video conferencing
The original meeting room equipment in Neocrm has poor sound pickup and noise reduction effect and high maintenance cost, and is also susceptible to human factors that can cause the entire equipment to fail. The conference tablets deployed later, with their built-in microphones, are unable to meet the sound pickup and amplification needs of Sales Easy's large conference rooms.
Challenge 3: High Maintenance Costs of Previous Audio System
The previous audio system had high maintenance costs due to its outdated technology. It was prone to breakdowns and required frequent repairs, resulting in expensive service fees. Furthermore, the system's sound-amplifying external devices were not user-friendly.
Chunze Shi, Head of Digital Information at Neocrm, emphasized that as a ToB company, Neocrm's remote collaboration meetings prioritize sharing and synchronizing information. Consequently, the device's noise reduction and pickup performance is of utmost importance, as clear audio quality is essential for a successful remote meeting experience.
