Client Spotlight: USP College
USP College was formed in 2017 following the merger of Seevic College in Benfleet and Palmer’s College in Grays, Essex. The College serves 4,500 students and aims to provide career-focused learning, allowing students to gain professional qualifications and develop the skills desired by businesses. USP College recognised they, like many other FE institutions, were experiencing testing times, subjects with low student numbers and challenges recruiting high-quality teaching staff. Coupled with variations in teaching and outcomes between the campuses and across subjects, the newly merged college saw an opportunity to change their teaching delivery method.
The solution was to create immersive spaces, with a wow factor to enable peer and collaborative learning. Design of the room was key to ensure a social space was created, rather than replicating the traditional model of online learning.

Client Spotlight: PushDoctor
People around the World are enjoying the benefits of new ways to access health professionals who previously were difficult to reach.

PushDoctor launched in 2014, recognising the need to offer a quick and easy way of connecting to a qualified GP using your PC or mobile phone.
PushDoctor needed technology that could deliver high quality video and sound to allow for accurate consultations without technical interruptions. The platform had to be a reliable, cost effective solution that could be easily developed to work with their application and could easily be used by patients when they need it most.
Client Spotlight: Glasgow University
A growing and expanding University with changing technology needs, academic and research staff required more flexibility and accessibility than the previous video conferencing system could provide. Having to schedule video meetings within the conferencing suite did not always suit everyone’s busy schedule. Much time was spent travelling to other buildings to facilitate video conferencing sessions.
The main priority was finding a quality video conferencing solution that provided a reliable and cost effective service and could be easily accessed from any device on desktop or mobile, both internally and outwith the organisation.
