For the last 10 or so years, Oxagile has been a trusted provider of custom and mobile application development services for some of the world’s most Web-prominent multinationals and media powerhouses. The company’s primary focus has always been on video-streaming solutions, but in the most recent years has also been centered on real-time communications.

With TokBox as a leader in the WebRTC community, it almost comes as no surprise that the two companies would team up to provide companies with better real-time communications in leading organizations into better communications and collaboration within the workplace.

As a partner of TokBox’s partner program, Oxagile is able to better embed WebRTC through the company’s signature OpenTok platform. They are able to better broadcast directly into their client’s applications. This means Oxgile will be able to offer their clientele better capabilities to hold Web conferencing and corporate training within their applications and Web portals. OpenTok enables multi-party calling, meaning that project teams can operate face-to-face, even at a distance.

For remote teams, especially those in multinational positions, this platform will bring more unification through regular team huddles and group discussion. A plus for members unable to make meetings, all video calls are able to be recorded, archived and played back through a secure firewall and protection of proprietary information.

Because Oxagile works with more than just enterprise businesses, it is quite possible for other streaming video services to take place through the platform. Streaming video broadcasts, both live and on-demand, is also made possible through this service.

Disney, for example, is one of Oxagile’s major clientele. They provide videos through each of their streaming media properties. Imagine Disney Junior for a moment. Children are able to access Disney-related videos through an authorized mobile platform. The only thing is this: Disney’s video platforms are available on multiple broadcast platforms, including Roku, Xbox, Tablets, Smartphones and more. Oxagile is a force behind the power of streaming Disney.

“We are proud to have become a TokBox Development Partner,” Mihail Romanovsky, Oxagile’s Head of Marketing said about the official partnerships. He continues, “I’m certain the partnership will provide us with new ways to hone our WebRTC expertise. It will also open the door to new business opportunities based on mutual benefit. We’ve got a pool of top quality engineers ready to build custom WebRTC solutions based on OpenTok. As we speak, our team is actively testing the technology’s bleeding edge, including WebRTC annotations.”

A scalable solution for video-streaming platforms, TokBox claims that their OpenTok solution allows software engineers to “deploy WebRTC applications ten times faster compared to vanilla WebRTC API.”

TokBox and competitor Polycom, kicked off the New Year with integrations and partnerships that gave them a head start in leading faster, more productive tech and conferencing experiences in 2016.

Video Conferencing Empowers Workers, Grows Businesses

Information Age recently broke down how video conferencing can help empower employees in the business landscape. Highlighting the fact that young professionals are super charged with expectation upon entering the workplace, innovation must meet the growing needs of our next generation of business leaders. That means giving millennial employees more access to remote work and flexible environments, as millennial workers tend to be more productive when given freedom and flexibility.

Giving employees the freedom to work from their choice destination, provided they get the work done, will lead to employees that are less stressed, more ambitious and better at networking. Allowing employees to spend more time with family or to cater to their health shows that the company actually cares about their needs. True, they are getting paid to work for that company. But a quality lifestyle comes from more than financial security.

Employers are starting to find that millennials will accept a lower pay in exchange for a less rigorous working schedule. And, once they have workplace freedom, they will work to keep that benefit. They may even be open to working at odd hours just to meet with clients overseas and in various time zones. This is another benefit of adopting videoconference technology. Travel expenses, accommodations and team leader unavailability can be minimized through a simple videoconference between key players in a client-vendor atmosphere.

Because the younger generations have practically grown up with video conferencing and other collaborative technologies, there is less of a reason not to adopt it into business strategy. There is really no need for training. Implementing this technology will actually encourage communication between team members. In this day and age, it is very rare to have a one-way presentation. Speakers have learned the need for Quaker-style interactions and have learned that it does create efficiency, clear up miscommunication and put everyone on the same page.

As for development, accelerated collaboration will allow millennials to develop into stronger leaders of our tomorrow. There is no, “Well, so-and-so is out of town, so we have to wait for next Thursday to meet and move our project along.” Because everyone is literally connected around the clock, it’s a matter of “what time?” This means projects will be finalized and delivered faster. This also means that more quality deliverables will be developed. Repetition leads to experience, and evaluation of experience leads to development.

The technology to enable these opportunities is a requirement, not an option. The world is evolving on an hourly basis. As senior team members transition to higher positions, leave for another company or even retire, millennials are filling their previous positions. Businesses need to adapt.
