IAC Group Reduces Audio Spend by 50% Using Zoom
Check out our latest case study on IAC Group! Luxembourg-based IAC creates groundbreaking automotive interiors for industry leaders such as GM, Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford, and Volvo. Designing these interiors and creating the complex technology that goes into them requires a coordination of efforts from regional headquarters in the U.S., China, and Germany and from over 19,000 employees in innovation centers in 17 countries.
Kevin Parliament, IAC’s IT Director, shared some details of IAC’s journey to Zoom and the impact that Zoom’s premier audio conferencing capabilities have had on the organization.
On IAC’s legacy communications solutions
“The user experience was horrible. It would work once we got into the application, but with loading plugins and frequent updates, I had to log in 30 minutes before a meeting started to make sure that everything worked. Every time we wanted to have a high-level meeting, we needed IT support there. We needed them to start the call, we needed them to troubleshoot the call, and if we didn’t have somebody there, inevitably something would go wrong.”
On the cost benefits of Zoom audio
“From a technology standpoint, Zoom has been a huge stress reliever. We were also able to consolidate our Webex and audio conferencing, and from a monetary standpoint, we were able to cut the amount we were spending by more than half.”
On the internal transformation
“Being able to show people [Zoom] technology and say, ‘Hey, this isn’t like it used to be.’ All you have to do is press a button and you can speak to anyone in the world. It’s awesome.”
On Zoom’s impact at IAC
“Very rarely do I get ‘thank you’ notes for being in IT. But I have more people commenting, stopping me in the hall, sending me messages telling me how much they like Zoom more than any other product that I’ve rolled out. And that, to me, is a huge statement on the technology. Frankly, it just works.”
