New Case Study: JAS and Zoom
Check out our newest case study: JAS: Global Logistics Company Manages Internal Logistics With Zoom.
JAS Forwarding Worldwide is an international freight fowarding company with a highly dispersed workforce around the world. Organizing their international teams is much easier said than done, and requires a state-of-the-art video meeting system. To learn more, we talked to Dan Snodgrass, Global Marketing Manager for JAS.
“We were looking for a solution that could handle all three of the elements of conferencing – teleconferencing, video conferencing, and web conferencing – on all the major platforms, while making it possible to mix and match all of these aspects,” said Snodgrass.
Why was Zoom the first choice for JAS? The company had a very large potential user base, which necessitated the adoption of a solution that simply worked with a minimum of fuss. “We have a large number of global users, meaning that it would be nearly impossible to have them use a solution that is much more complicated than Zoom,” he said. Additionally, the company’s heavy dependence on video conferencing requires a solution that does not charge per participant or per minute.
In the nine months JAS has been using Zoom it has positively changed the way they conduct global internal communications. “Because of Zoom, we no longer need to constantly send employees overseas for training or meetings like we used to,” he said.
In the end, Zoom has become a nearly perfect fit for this eternally busy company. According to our meeting with Dan Snodgrass, these are the most salient benefits that JAS has derived from using Zoom:
- Zoom is simple to use, making it accessible to a large user base.
- Its quality/price ratio far exceeds what other solutions have offered to JAS.
- Eliminating the need to travel, Zoom has saved JAS operating expenditures and improved employee efficiency.
- Because Zoom doesn’t charge per minute, it provide a more predictability of communication expenses.
- The capacity for large meetings with up to 100 interactive video participants and 1,000 webinar participants means JAS use Zoom for training sessions.
JAS has been operating for over 36 years. In that time, it has employed thousands of individuals in over 80 countries. Now, Zoom has become an integral part of this company’s business model, creating an environment in which JAS is free to concentrate on pursuing its goals rather than arranging flights for its staff and management.
